This little find was closing for the day and not taking anymore customers. A small family run business, the owner let us in and offered to make us any of the pastas. Well we were not disappointed. Large portions, amazing flavours and home made pasta. We loved this place and can understand why they have 2 tripadvisor awards. Large selection... More

What can I say - I didn't want the pizza I was having here to finish and could have easily had another. After discovering this place a few years ago we always make a point of coming here for fine pizza and pasta - it never disappoints. As I've said before - don't let the lack of swanky waiters and...

Location excellent being so close to the Trevi Fountain and a huge choice of pastas and pizzas. The food is obviously cooked to order and served piping hot. Try it for yourself - you will not be disappointed.

We ate here twice out of a 4 night trip to Rome because we were so pleased with the quality of the food, the fair price and the friendliness of the staff. What especially impressed us was, when trying to decide what side dishes to order with our saltimbocca alla romana, the waiter recommended that we order less because we... More

We visited Piccolo Buco based on the reviews. At first we could not find it, but when we did, we were so happy! The door is very very small and it is between two stores with clothing and souvenirs. The attention was superb and they made suggestions, we couldnt have asked for a more authentic meal. I ordered a spinach... More

We stumbled across Piccolo Buco because of its very convenient location, a stone throw away from the Trevi Fountain. Super efficient service and an endless choice of pasta and pizza! Staff were so welcoming and food so delicious we booked the place the following day for lunch. Considering its location, the place is very reasonably priced for one of the... More

We found this little restaurant whilst walking near the Trevi Fountain. The owner is very nice and accommodated us immediately. The Pizza is excellent especially since it is cooked with a wood oven, making it crunchy and tasteful.
