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.

I have been to Rome three times in four years and have come to this restaurant each time as I stay in the area (first year I was in the residenzia Farnese a block away). I love the pizza (prosciutto & arugula/"rocket"). My son loves the vanilla gelato and strawberries for desert. At lunch, there is a market in the... More

It is a small typical Italian family restaurant. Went back after our first visit 2 years ago. And it was as tasty as last time. Perfect pasta and a amazing Tiramisu. The prices is quite low compare to what you get. Also very good service. Will definitely go back next time in Rome.

We had appetizers, mains, desserts, wine and espresso corretto. Everything was made with very fresh/homemade ingredients, very tasty and good portions. Very friendly, attentive service. You must follow their advice, they definitely know their food. This is most definitely NOT a tourist trap. How wonderful!

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.

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.
