I spent 11 days in 4 cities in Italy and this was hands down our best meal

Amazing fresh food. Everything we ate from appetizers to dessert was delicious. The waitress is the owner with her husband in the back cooking. I have an allergy to nuts and she made sure I was OK with all the food. I wish i could go back!

This restaurant had some interesting takes on classic Italian meals. Very comfortable dining room, good air conditioning and very good food. I found it reasonable priced for such a touristy location. very good service as well.

I very rarely like to visit the same restaurant twice in a trip, but Al Duello was an exception. The food was delicious, the atmosphere elegant but relaxed, and the service professional yet friendly. On our first visit I had zucchini flowers stuffed with cherry tomatoes and wrapped in bacon then baked (so good!) and roast pheasant. I don't remember... More

6 friends looking for a place to eat in the middle of Rome. Based on TripAdvisor reviews booked this restaurant and happy enough that we did, although the food quality was mixed. The restaurant is a bit hard to find, but it's in a historic area, is air-conditioned and has comfortable furniture. For starters we ordered the Zucchini Flowers and... More

Had dinner with my 2 (quite discerning) teenagers. We all marked it excellent . Lovely mussel soup, octopus with black rice, followed by quail, veal and prawns with pasta. All delicious. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We all felt relaxed. The waiter suggested a lovely Trebbiano white wine for me which I loved. Definitely worth a visit €98.50 for... More

We were staying in the same building as Al Duello. On a particularly long and tiring day, we did not want to travel far for dinner. We were lucky enough to call just in time to get a reservation. The restaurant is not very large, which was wonderful. There were only a few other parties while we were there. The... More

A very good, classy restaurant in the middle of the "old town". Good food and wine, and an excellent service.

Our family of four really enjoyed our dinner last night at Al Duello. Located just a few blocks north of the Pantheon, the location is convenient from anywhere in Rome. Our server was very friendly and spoke English very well. She had good recommendations for our dinner. The grisili served just before dinner was just baked and still warm. We... More

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.
