We actually had lunch here 2 times in one week in Rome after wandering around Piazza Navona and Campo di Fiori - we always look for places away from the major tourist sites. Small, charming, great food but just as important very friendly service! We will visit again Sept 2014 !

We had our very first Roman meal at Hostaria Farnese and it set a high standard for the rest of our stay. Service was quick and friendly (our waitress kindly pretended to understand my Italian)! Both our pizza and past dishes were good and kept us full for the whole afternoon. The terrace is small but comfortable and quiet despite... More

The Perfect “Family” Dinner … Looking for just that “special” feel of a family restaurant in Rome? Hostaria Farnese is the place for you! We’ve had the good fortune to visit this wonderful trattoria on several visits to this beautiful city. On our first visit, “Mama” Cantini was standing by the doorway and we could see “Papa” Cantini and his... More

My husband and I have eaten at Hostaria Farnese many times. We also have brought many friends there over the years. It is a family run hostaria with a variety of items on the menu. You can get a light meal of pizza or a full multi course meal. Every time we visit, there is at least one new, interesting... More

While surrounded by tourist traps in the center of Rome, this small restaurant is genuinely good. Simple, no non-sense food, served with an honest smile. Small terrace outside on the street, slightly cramped inside, but that is definitively part of its charm.

We were advised on this restaurant by our priest who attended the seminary in Rome and were not disappointed. Near the very active Piazza Farnese and Campo di Fiori it was easy to find and was what I imagined in an outdoor restaurant in the heart of the city. My family and I enjoyed the typical Roman dinner and shared... More

My family of four wandered here looking for a late lunch near Campo dei Fiori, hoping for something slightly less of a tourist mill and we were mightily pleased. Felt like the real deal - family run quality with attentive, cheerful service, cozy & lively atmosphere, delicious pizza, steak, and tiramisu - it was a wonderful find!

We have been in Rome almost a month and we were looking for a reliable local place near our apartment to call our own. Based on the wonderful reviews this restaurant received on this website we decided to try it. We could not believe how ordinary the food was. The lack of quality of ingredients, tasteless preparation and the indifferent... More

We first went to Hostaria Farnese in 2009, picking it out based on its small size, location right off of Campo di Fiore, and its cosy ambience. We had an extremely delightful meal with son Luca as our waiter and help from his mother who came out of the kitchen to give us advice on what to order - a... More
