Great food, service and big beers!!

Walked in off the street on holiday visit to Rome ! Had Italian speaking son & daughter in law and found a gem! Staff spoke English anyway but very engaging and welcoming. Smallish inside but this only serves to create more personal and homely feel. Service was great, and genuine well cooked... read more

My husband and I were walking by near the Trevi fountain and decided to have some pizza. The place was busy and the brick oven caught our attention. Luca greeted us and asked where we wanted to sit. We had the best meal here!!! We ordered the Bruchetta, a sausage & mushroom pizza, and a plate of garlic spaghetti with... More

The service at this place was fantastic. The food was freshly prepared and very reasonably priced. Much better than the 'food on a square'. We had a lovely dinner here with friends. They even went back a second time later in their trip. That is saying something.

I had the best Spaghetti, Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino at this restaurant. Convenitenly located near Trevi Fountain, this small restaurant serves very delicious pasta and pizza. Ingredients were fresh and tasty, service was terrific, and the owner, Luca, spoke perfect English. Forget about all the touristy restaurants near Piazza di Spagna. Walk five minutes, and you will appreciate the short... More

Come here twice with husband and 4 kids 14-20. Both times the younger 2 had the spaghetti bolognaise, saying it's the best they've ever eaten - and cleared their plates TOTALLY! The Penne arriabiatta was wonderful, as was the carbonara and the gnocci. Bruschetta was great, as was garlic bread. The owner spoke beautiful english... If you like the meal,... More

We chose this restaurant because it was on the same street as our hotel. The host/waiter was friendly, funny, helpful, and spoke excellent English. We'd go back for the food, can recommend the lasagna and the ravioli with four cheese sauce. The house wine was decent, too.

My fiancé and I went to this restaurant on a recommendation. It is a small restaurant near the Trevi fountain. The service was amazing as was the food. The prices for food and wine are decent for a restaurant so close to a tourist attraction. Would recommend the pizza and tiramisu.

Was looking for a spot to eat while near Trevi Fountain, went here based on Trip Advisor review of "places nearby". Nice family run establishment, casual, friendly. Based on the waiters suggestion I ordered the fresh buffalo mozzarella that came out slightly warm, gooey and delicious! I also got a pasta dish he suggested - something Ameritana - also very...

We had this restaurant down as one to visit based on TripAdvisor reviews, and on our first night having just ordered we had a Canadian couple behind us. We overheard them talking with the owner how they would like to book a table for the following night. We couldn't see how the food would be so good, that you would... 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.
