This restaurant is of fine dining, not your average Italian restaurant. Not many dishes for vegetarians. It is the most expensive restaurant which we visited in Rome. Dishes were tasty, very small portions. Kitchen closes at 22.30.

This Osteria is a little more formal than most of the restaurants that we had eaten in Rome on this trip. The food was excellent and we had great service and attention especially from the Stefano. Each dish was prepare beautifully and was delicious. I had unfortunately left my AMEX card at the restaurant and they called the hotel to... More

The Osteria dell Antiquario is a perfectly nice restaurant with extremely friendly staff. The décor is plain and old fashioned, but not in any way quaint. The restaurant is very small although the tables are very well spaced out. Food is reasonable to expensive. For the first course I had shrimps (expensive at E16) whilst my wife had ravioli (the...

Dined with a group of CEO's from all over and this place is special. Food and Wine is amazing. Would suggest allowing them to surprise with their speciality, it is amazing. 10/10, you will remember for both Business & Pleasure

We wandered in after a long day walking round all of Rome's sites. We sat and were immediately poured a small glass of Proseco as we looked at the menu. Food was great the best meal we had in Rome over the weekend. Service was also extremely friendly and I can only describe the meal as fun. My wife and... More

My son and I have just returned from a perfect lunch experience here and i disagree with the previous reviewer completely. The tuna tartare was fresh and seasoned with Maldon salt, gnocchi with squid ink were feather-light, the pasta al dente and the rendition of the classic Roman carbonara is one I would highly recommend for your first lunch in...

Do not eat here under any circumstances. If your hotel tells you to eat here then switch hotels. This is a classic tourist trap. There was not one Italian eating in this restaurant. It was full of loud tourists who had no clue they were being taken for a ride. Prices were absurd given the quality. The wine list is... More

Our hotel suggested this restaurant on our first night in Rome. We ordered the seafood for two, artichokes and the mozzarella and tomatoes. The tomatoes were horrible, mozzerella, ok,the artichokes, tasty. The seafood was carefully cooked in front of us and we were fussed over a little but too much. The seafood was over a black rice and while it... More

My husband and I visited Rome on 9-11 December and was recommended this restaurant by the concierge at the Hotel. On arrival we were greeted as if we were old friends.

This is not a place you might find or choose by yourself . . . our hotel concierge pointed us here with specific directions when we asked for a welcoming restaurant. It's located on a very small square buried among the streets in an older section of Rome. At our 8:30 p.m. dinner outside, we watched the neighborhood parade by... More

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.
