We ate here two days ago and the food was absolutely delicious. My gf had the bruschetta as first course. We both had the lasagna as main course and it was so excellent that I ordered a second one. I joked that I wanted a third one and the waiter said: In that case it's my treat. Too bad I... More

After reading many positive reviews, we made a reservation here for Sunday lunch. At Rome's better restaurants, visited by locals, this is a wonderful experience: Many tables of local families enjoying a long lunch at end of the week. But Osteria del gallo seemed to have only a small contingent of tourists. It wasn't all that pleasant. First of all,... More

We did a lot of walking around during our stay in the Piazza Navona area, and of our 3 dinners, this was the best. We almost stopped one restaurant sooner, but we were drawn to just look a little further around the corner -- glad we did. This is a charming little restaurant with outside seating. Even though this little... More

After walking around for ages, looking at numerous menus we were fed up and said the next place we come across we'll go in. Don't think this was our best decision but I suppose it could have been worse. The staff were professional but lacked personality. The food was ok but the whole meal seemed to be rushed and we...

Wondering around the back-streets near Piazza Navona and found this little gem. It was everything a little Italian bistro; on street dining, checked table cloths and mind-blowing food. It also had spectacular service. Food first; we ordered burchetta and expected a few small pieces. Each plate came with three well heaped pieces that were fresh and delicious. We also ordered...

Just popped in here for some food as it was close to the hotel. We were the only people dining in there so maybe a bit harsh to judge ambiance on that basis but to be fair they were playing "I will survive" which isn't generally what I'd look for in any eatery. To the food. We ordered half a... More

My wife and I found this restaurant by accident. Nice location (little street next to Piazza Navona) and nice menu. The service was nothing out of the ordinary, but honest. I don't think they pretend to be a 5 stars restaurant anyway. For the meal, we shared one caprese...delicious. The mozzarella was very fresh. For the primi, my wife got... More

We were lucky enough to find the Osteria del Gallo one evening while strolling through the backstreets trying to avoid the "tourist traps" in the popular piazzas. This little restaurant is a hidden gem. The staff was extremely helpful in making our evening enjoyable. The food was delicious....highly recommend the carbonara and the gnocchi with pesto. After dinner, walk a... More

We found this restaurant while wandering around in the alleys in an attempt to escape the crowd of tourists near Campo di Fiori. This place was perfect! It is tucked away on a side street, is small and there was nobody standing out front trying to lure us in! The owner moved tables for us to make room outside and... More
