This was our first meal in Rome, so I am comparing it to Tuscany, Amalfi and Ravello etc.. The food portions were ok, the classic caprese was a good size as was the house gnocchi, but my main course lamb was average, in taste and size, but my wife's Osso Bucco was really good both in flavour and portion size.....

we love this place. The food is great, wait staff is amazing and the prices are very good. The pizza is the best in Rome and the profiteroles for desert were spectacular. We eat every time in Rome I would give 6 stars if I could

Probably the poorest meal we ate in the area.Average food served by an elderly waiter who seemed distracted at times. A good example of shopping around first as we did so the following days and did well.

Small, family run, restaurant, pastas. The cannelloni and fettuccine with zucchini flowers and Parma ham, were both simply outstanding. Caprese salad with Buffalo mozzarella was the best we have ever had.....

Almost a momma and poppa establishment just off the small Farnese Square. Good service and good portions but pricey excellent for people watching though.

Food was "ok" no more no less. Looks like a last minute solution for the tourists around. Friendly people, staff but food felt cooked without soul. I would go next time to another place. .. Italian cuisine is not just about spaghetti with a bit of olive oik :)

Found this pearl on tripadvisor. Seemed like a nice family restaurant, and it was more than that. Humble waiters and the food was one of the best I've ever had! I had some delicious Parma ham with Buffalo mozarella as primi, it was as soft and fresh as it should be. You should definitely try this. My main course was... More

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
