Excellent food

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... read 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....

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

My hotel recommended this place for dinner so armed with my tourist map and Lonely Planet guide, I went hunting for it. It was so well hidden (or perhaps my sense of direction is terrible!) that it took me quite a while to find the place, having to retrace my steps more than once that I almost gave up looking...

I honestly am baffled by the reviews for this restaurant. Maybe we went on an off night, or maybe we ordered the wrong items, but we were truly not impressed from start to finish. The zucchini flower pasta was completely unremarkable and bland, our starter-sea bass carpaccio-tasted extremely salty and fishy so I could tell it was not fresh at... More

While meandering looking for a lunch spot in Rome, I saw this place in a small side street. I was not sure what to expect, but seeing a large group of Italians arrive confirmed that this was a good choice. I had a fairly quick lunch, but it was superb. I will be happy to comeback for the great pasta... More

She then asked us if we'd like any dessert. We ordered a pizza. It was so wonderful. Just look at the menu and order anything on it. This is not a pizza parlor, but a lovely "hard to find" restaurant worth whatever it takes to get there. We walked. The first time there, my wife wasn't too certain of my... More

We were recommended this restaurant from our hotel. It was a real disappointment. The service was not good at all, from the beginning to the end. My risotto was disappointing, though it was an nice combination with beetroot. The home made bread was almost tastless.

Tasteless antipasto Santa Cristina, overcooked seabass and swordfish drown in lemon sauce. Tiramisu average. We were not impressed. Staff is friendly but its seems kitchen team has lost the passion. Too bad as reviews on this site did create certain expectations. Hope we just caught them on a bad evening, it was Monday, we are all human -)

This place is a must visit! In terms of food, it's absolutely amazing and it's something unexplainable once you have tasted it. I never regret in visiting this place because it's actually cheap and basically this will give you a super worth it with the service they offer you. Honestly, it was the best Parma that I've eaten and so... 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.
