Excellent experience

We tried this restaurant on our first night in Rome. After that experience, nothing else compared so on our last night, we returned once again.

This restaurant came up with good ratings in Rome so we tried this out at the weekend and the reviews were correct! The restaurant has a good a la carte menu and set menu. The carbonara, the meat fettucine, and fillet steaks are amazing! We had to wait until 7pm for the restaurant to open but it was well worth... More

Thank you Crestiano, the waiter who served us one of the best food in Rome, the portion of the starter is even like a main. Will recommend this restaurant to every visitor.

I would definitely recommend as we had a fabulous evening! The food was very good, excellent wine list and just what you would expect a traditional Italian restaurant to be. Make sure you book in advance as it is full every night

Very pleasant interior - varied layout, neat and clean. A varied Italian menue - matched by a fine assortment of Italian wines. All is excelllently prepared and presented. The... More

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 there and... 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.

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.
