When in Rome, eat here

Went here on the recommendation of a friend and it was just fantastic, in such an effortless way. Emboldened by pre-dinner drinkies, I ordered an excessive amount of food; we had Italian meats, mozzarella balls and bread with the most delicious olive oil.

Our party of three just returned from our first visit to this tucked away family driven restaurant. I write first visit because we plan to go back again during our short holiday in Rome. Food was great. We had the filet mignon and the chicken. Chocolate cake was great! Service was awesome, one (the young man) speaks english very well.... More

Food was amazing. Service was brilliant. Lovely little family run restaurant hidden away in the alleys, not far from the Forum. Well worth searching out. Highly recommend.

My father had been here 5 years prior and raved about the experience. He was right! Family owned and warm atmosphere. House wine is great. Everyone's pasta dishes were tasty (there were 8 of us). Try the chicken w Gorgonzola cheese, great! Looking forward to visiting again next year

Good food, family owned and operated, and awesome atmosphere... what else do you need to know? Pasta is excellent and I had a filet mignon as the 2nd dish. Everything was cooked to perfection and was some of the best food that we have had in Italy thus far. I would highly recommend this place to anyone in the area.

Enjoyable experience, simple tasty fair. Beetroot and Gorgonzola risotto had a spicy kick to it and the flounder pan fried in vermouth and served with potatoes was delicious. Price was okay for Rome, water was cheaper than the hotel across the court yard we stayed at.

We went in with high expectations based on the reviews. We were not disappointed at all. First, we started with a cheese plate. Amazing. Then the four of us shared: lasagne, bolognese, grill vegetables, and the special zucchini pasta. Amazing. Amazing. Amazing - yes even grilled vegetables. And the house pasta? 2x amazing. Finished up with a steak to split... More

The man at our hotel insisted we eat at Santa Cristina. We are so glad we took his advice! This small family run restaurant is hidden on a tiny little side street served us the best meal of our trip. The pasta with swordfish was incredible as was the grilled fish. This the meal we still talk about!

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.
