Seriously. While the restaurant itself is a little small and not the best looking place in the world, the food was amazing and the servers were outstanding. My wife and I both agreed it was the best lasagna we've ever had. We also had their house appetizer and everything was very fresh. The mozzarella was so fresh you needed a... More

We did not make an reservation however managed to squeeze in a table for 2, quite close to another couple and close to the kitchen. A bit scary as the staff zoom in and out with plates but that was ok. The ordering tablet was down and we waited for a very long time before someone took our order, however... More

Hidden gem! This backstreet restaurant is a nice, quiet, clean, and pleasantly decorated retreat from the tourist throng at nearby Trevi. The food is excellent. The wait staff are friendly and attentive. Our favorite dining experience in Rome!

Went here based on the tripadvisor reviews on my last night in Rome and kinda regretted it - should have stuck with the places I knew I liked. The tiramisu was the best I've had in Rome, it was excellent, but even after I asked for the cheque I sat there waiting for another 25 minutes at least, until I... More

Tried for a table Sunday evening but place was packed. Reserved and came back 30mins later and it had emptied out a bit. Interior and furniture was a bit functional, but the service and food were outstanding. Highlights were a really nice prosecco, outstanding seafood starter, cured meats starter, seafood main, pasta main and 'Danish steak' main. Desserts were good.... More

One of the best if not the best meals we've ever had. Pasta dishes were just unbielievably tasty ( we had to control ourselves not to lick our plates!!!)... Good quirky beer, very attentive staff, romantic but not cheesy interior. 3 course meal with beer for 2 was only €65. 100% recommended!

Best dinner so far in Italy. I had one of the two fixed dinner menus and it was delicious. Seafood risotto came as my first course and I could have been content with just that. My husband ordered a la carte and his steak with port wine sauce was superb. My teens enjoyed their pastas too. The wait staff was... More

Make reservations, show up, enjoy pasta - pretty simple. I am going to rate it 5 out of 5 despite having the saltimbocca which was ok, but not great, just because the pasta was amazing. Also, the service was really good, they accommodated my wish to have a small pasta portion because I wanted to try different courses and I... More

Staying in Trevi

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.
