Great restaurant in a cozy hidden back alley

Good service, nice food in a calm back alley. We sat outside and had some great food and drinks. I would definitely recommend this!

Tucked away off the Via Nazionale, this quiet little restaurant serves lovely home cooked Roman Food. The meal was excellent, but the waiter appeared somewhat distracted and not very friendly. Perhaps tourists are not what they like? A pity, because the food has a lot to recommend it.

Stood up to Tripadvisor rate. Good food, service not great, but dissent - like in most Italian restaurants, not cheap. Worth visiting.

When eating in Rome, do yourself a favour and avoid any restaurant that has a "tourist" menu. It usually indicates that their cuisine will be less than authentic because they assume your tastes are not quite sophisticated enough to tell the difference between real Italian and "North American Authentic Italian" also known as Domino's, Chef Boyardee, Catelli.

This is the little inexpensive Roman restaurant you have always dreamed of but never found. Just go there - it will be excellent. Very small place - only a few tables. Wonderful simple food. Sensational antipasto. Good wine. Incredibly friendly staff. Great ambience. It is is a tiny little piazza, like out of Roman Holiday. The day we were there,... More

We've been traveling for two weeks from Canada, Belgium, Portugal, Germany and Italy and dining out at every place. Had some bad meals and some good meals. This place stole the show. The best meals we've had in a long long time. The service was very attentive and professional, the location is just minutes off the beaten tourist traps. The... More

This place was recomended by our hotel and it was a disapointment. It is not cheap and the "family run restaurant" written outside is more of a marketing pitch.... The food was less than average, we ll definitely will never go back there....

We found this hidden little gem after a half-day visit to Vittoriano and Capitoline hill museums. The place has just opened for lunch when we came. Located in a narrow street, it's a quiet and cosy family run restaurant. We took antipasto for starters, which was excellent. Then we had filet mignon for the main course, and the kids took... More

Small family run restaurant hidden away in the small alley. The food is simply fantastic. For starters we had the antipasto to share, which was fresh and full of flavours. For my main I have ordered a steak which was done to a perfecion. Followed by amazing apple pie. The food it's on the expensive side but totally worth every... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
