Lovely atmosphere, good food

Eating out alone can be hard sometimes, but I enjoyed my meal here. The staff were elderly men, which was actually really nice. They were well informed and very good at their jobs, really added a to the homey feel and food. My pasta was good! Nothing special, typical for the price (€7.5) Italian... read more

We agree with the many positive reviews. It is a brightly lit restaurant with a local family feel and decor that fits the place very well. We thought it was attractive and the food was very good with reasonable prices (including wine prices). Think about arriving a bit early as some items were gone when we came in a little... More

Nothing fancy just great food and cheerful and very helpful service; very reasonably priced for the high quality food and the waiter taking care of a family of four could not have been better. Made suggestions and called the audibles to mix and match anti-pasta and desert--and don't skip the latter.

This restaurant has the strong feel of a family run, unpretentious Italian Restaurant. Complete with home cooked meals and mama managing the kitchen. In a ten day Rome visit we went to this restaurant twice. The meals we had were quite good especially the veal dish. This is obviously a locals favorite. Both times we attended were week day nights... More

One of the best ways to rate a restaurant is to check whether it is frequented by locals or by tourists. If it is the first case then you won't go wrong because you will find the authentic Italian cooking. Tourists come here too. The prices and the service are worth the try.

This place felt really genuine and authentic. The clock on the wall states they've been in business since 1948 and the interior looks like it too. Brightly lit and catering to the unpretentious crowd looking for delicious food and reasonable prices rather than ambience. The menu is not in English and the waiter doesn't even speak English (which gave me... More

We went to Da Giovanni for dinner. The service was very friendly and fast. We had great pasta (vegetarian) for a great price. The atmosphere is very traditional.

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighborhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighborhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighborhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 8pm.
