Amazing pasta. Cheap prices considering the location. English speaking waiters. Very small, so recommend bookings - we went at 7 and most of the tables were reserved. Would go back for the homemade gnocchi!

Visited the hostaria during a holiday in Rome. The food was excellent; we had baccala Roman style with raisins, which was very delicious. The waiters were very helpfull and friendly

Went here for dinner. Had ravioli and spaghetti Vongole. Very good food. Nice wine list (be sure and request the list -- menu shows only Rosso or Bianco). Wait staff was delightful. We were the only diners speaking English. The tiramisu was some of the best I have had (and I have eaten my fair share!). All in all, a... More

Unassuming local restaurant , full of Italians who love good fresh food cooked from scratch , had one of the best Dover soles I've tasted, very good service and house wine as recommended was excellent, the pannacotta and cherries was a simple but special , all in all a wonderful experience.

We stopped for lunch after walking around the Campo d'Fliore. The restaurant is an oasis away from the noise od the campo. It is family run! Small and intimate. The pizza was delicious with a crispy crust. The service was attentive. Great place to have lunch.

My parents have been coming here for many years and when I had the possibility to take clients out for dinner then I used the opportunity to follow the proud family tradition of eating here... It's a wonderful family style restaurant, with great and tasteful traditional Italian food.. Value for money, super friendly service and highly recommended.

We've spent many months living in the Campo area over the last 15 years, and the Hostaria Farnese remains one of our favorite little restaurants in the area. Situated in the shadow of the Palazzo Farnese, it is a great spot to enjoy both a good meal and great view of this typical Roman neighborhood. The Farnese is still run... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

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.
