We were in the neighborhood for a classical concert in a church one block away, we stopped in for dinner. After reading about this on Trip Advisor we decided to check it out. Thinking this would be a place where more locals would eat, we were surprised to see that everyone in the restaurant was a foreigner. Service was excellent.... More

Dear guest, I just want to say that we don't serve wine in caraf,just by bottles( regular 0.75 liter or 0.375 )or by the glass, and that we accept all the credit cards since 1985! Thank you for your review and we wait for you at hostaria farnese one more time. Grazie mille Luca More

Nice and friendly restaurant that is not trying to be fancy and modern. It is all about the food which is very good.

My family and I ate here on a weekday evening in July 2015, hoping we'd found a good pick given the reviews here. While some dishes and the overall level of service were good, this one earns an average rating. First the good: the house wine was decent and reasonably priced. My own spaghetti con vongole dish was very tasty,... More

We had dinner here on a friday evening, it wasn't too busy. We sat outside and there were a few other tourists. The staff was friendly and helpfull, their English was pretty good. The food was very nice and not too expensive. Great simple Caprese salad, very delicious Ravioli and Melanzane. A nice little place for a romantic dinner.

We were turned away from a restaurant not too far from the Campo de Fiori and asked the host where he would eat - he directed us to the Hostaria Farnese. I am so glad he did. The restaurant is very unassuming situated on a side street near the Campo Farnese - we sat outside on the street - under... More

Tripadvisor picks another great restaurant. This is a small restaurant between Campo de Flori and the french embassy. The buffalo Mozzarella and prosciutto was a great appetizer. The Osso Bucco was perfect, the shrimp where nice and tasty. For dessert the chocolate cakes were perfect. Would definitely consider going again at the end of the week....fyi there is a 10%... More

I was recommended this restaurant by a friend and we are glad we went. It's a small restaurant in a great area. The food was fantastic and sitting outside was perfect.

We visited Rome two months ago, and stayed at a hotel close to the Campo de Fiori. We wanted to find a comfortable restaurant close to the hotel for dinner. (We did not want to eat at a mediocre tourist trap directly on the Campo) By sheer luck, we found Hostaria Farnese very close by on Via Baullerl. It was... 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.
