Very original in terms of staff, food, atmosphere and other guests. That night we were certainly the only tourists in this small but cosy restaurant. Only went to it because we couldn't get in elsewhere, but boy was it worth it. Real Roman cuisine at its best. A real gem.

Reasonably priced rustic Osteria. Not fancy but really nice food. The wine was excellent. Right in the centre of town between the pantheon and piazza novona- and not a tourist trap. Feels authentic and family run.

We discovered this restaurant from reading Rick Steve's book. The food and service were on spot. This is truly a mom and pop run restaurant with a festive atmosphere, and pleasant traditional décor. If you're wanting to try true Italian food, this is your place. Service was great, and so were the various pasta dishes we ordered. There is a... More

The first time we ate here, we had stumbled upon it. Been back a few times since. Outdoor seating is good for people watching, even though the Osteria is tucked away. The Bucatini all' Amatriciana was great!

This restaurant was so good we ate there twice and would have eaten there a third time but they were closed. The atmosphere was astounding , center of Rome and just around the corner from the Pantheon. The food was delicious and the service was first class. Outdoor atmosphere at its best.

We came across this restaurant a little north of the Pantheon as it was near our hotel. It's in a lovely little square and has a rustic appearance. The service was efficient and friendly and the food was first class, the best we had in Rome in 4 days. Our kids loved the Roman white bean stew for starter, the... More

My family ate here two nights while we stayed in Rome! We started with the Antipasto Misto, which included everything from prosciutto to marinated eggplant and a specialty Roman bean dish. Pasta was next! We tried the carbonara, zucchini flower, gnocchi, calco e pepe and they were all fantastic! For our secondi we shared the rabbit (which is to die... More

WE arrived at this restaurant at 6:35pm to enjoy our Roman dinner … we were abruptly told that the place did not open until 7pm … even though the place seemed to be ready, tables set, waiters hanging around in the dining room … the same thing happened the day before at another restaurant and the owner invited us in,...

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
