Great food and brilliant service!

We ate here on our first night in Rome and it was such a lovely surprise. It's quite hard to find but it's definitely worth it. Our waitress was lovely and the food was to die for. There was quite a lot of tourists but, it didn't detract from our experience. We made our reservations before we got... read more

A stone's throw from the Trevi Fountain but just off the beaten track this gem of a restaurant has it all. A welcoming staff for whom everything is a pleasure, as well as the very best Italian dishes and wines, and all at very reasonable prices. Do not miss it.

Found this one through trip advisor as its tucked away on a small street but close to Trevi Fountain. Really sweet inside with lots of nice touches to the decorations. Nice service. We had 2 pizza's, both delicious, with water and 1/2 litre of wine and only cost €25! Very happy :-)

we visited last Saturday and the food was ok nothing special just your average Italian eaterie but dont get caught out by the bottles of wine that is left on your table when being seated as they are very very expensives wines that once opened will cost you about 75 euros unless thats ok with you.

Wanted to eat near the Trevi Fountain and saw the good recent reviews on Tripadvisor for this restaurant. Selected the shared anti-pasta for a started, which we both enjoyed and went for the lasagne for main course - delicious - best Lasagne I have ever had in Italy. They served small bottles of wine (375cl) which was good as we... More

We were glad to find a seat at around 8:15pm and were served promptly enough, with two mini quiche-like appetizers to whet our appetites. Decided to try the much-lauded lasagne and also the seafood linguine. Delicious!! Very interesting and different lasagne, with the salami and I couldn't quite identify what sort of cheese it was. Linguine came w mounds of... More

the swordfish is tremendous! The seafood risotto is great also. The best is the service. They were busy on a Sunday night and apologized for being slow. We felt they were right in time and the food was hot and plentiful. Take their advise on selections. Go, it was great. Read my other reviews for Rome.

Neighborhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
