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

By luck stopped and had a WONDERFUL lunch at Hostaria Farnese. Linguini with artichoke and parmesan, wine, grappa and torte topped with gelato for desert. Lucca and papa' Francesco were a dream! Grazie!

This restaurant was recommended to me by a good friend who grew up in Rome. It is between Campo de Fiori and the Piazza Farnese, close to the French Embassy. It took a little while to find because everything in the square seems to have the word Farnese in the title. It's just across from the Farmacia Farnese. Our reservation... More

Stumbled across this excellent place. Local area is touristy and we were conscious about over-pricing and indifferent quality. Very surprised with Histaria Farnese. Good service, delicious food including some daily specials, and good value. Will definitely return on our next trip. Recommended.

It looks and feels like a family-run restaurant which welcomes tourists but doesn't go out of its way to drag them in - no hawkers on the street, for example, which makes a nice change. The vibe is quite intimate, with a good mix of locals and foreigners. Service is attentive and friendly. The pasta recommendations were both excellent and... More
