Great Menu.

Just across from our hotel so became our local Oasis for our evening meals. This was recommended by one of our hotel staff and is spot-on. We did try other venues but this was our favourite and we found ourselves returning. Great food and helpful staff. We did find it best to book as it is very... read more

We ate here on our first night in Rome and it was such a lovely surprise. It's quite hard to find but it's definitely worth it. Our waitress was lovely and the food was to die for. There was quite a lot of tourists but, it didn't detract from our experience. We made our reservations before we got there and... More

We visited this busy restaurant one evening in February, we were made very welcome and had an enjoyable meal, the chef even changed the sauce on the pasta for me. The house wine was excellent and an excellent price at 9 euros! Lovely atmosphere and owned and run by a family. Would reccomend.

Just across from our hotel so became our local Oasis for our evening meals. This was recommended by one of our hotel staff and is spot-on. We did try other venues but this was our favourite and we found ourselves returning. Great food and helpful staff. We did find it best to book as it is very popular.

Great food and outstanding service... we ate there two nights in a row! You have to try their caprese salad.

This place totally saved our trip to Rome. After several lousy restaurants with cold, salty and disgusting food we finally got to this warm lovely little gem. The waiter welcomed us with a smile and actually cared about us being comfortable. We shared a cheese starter with bread which was simple and nice. We both had pasta dishes after the... More

A small place near Fontana di Trevi. Very nice restaurant with great price and great food. E$2.50 for a bruscheta (check the pic) and E$10.00 for a ham pizza. Everything was good and i recommend for every one.

Wandered in off the street and sat down straight away. Only complaint would be a bit quiet inside - maybe some music needed to relax the mood. The restaurant is charmingly decorated with signs from a neighbouring shop and they spoke very good English. I ordered the ricotta ravioli which was lovely and my boyfriend had the pasta parcels with... More

After lengthy travel and an accomodation hiccup, we were tired and fragile. The warm, friendly welcome and service from Luca soothed us and the excellent food restored our smiles. He managed to raise smiles and responses from our grumpy tired teens and I wached my frazzled husband relax as they chatted. The decor is simple, the charm comes from the... 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.
