Perfection!

Being at Rome since a couple of days, I had the chance to enjoy perfect food and nice people. I felt like home, like an Italian. Thanks to Carlo for showing me Roman culture. Please come and enjoy, if not expensive but gastronomical food. I loved it ! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Located in a small side street with lots of foot traffic and the odd scooter, with graffiti everywhere, it initially seems a place not to visit. Don't be put off. The food is great. They don't seem to advertise a taster menu, except on their website, but will happily provide it if requested. It was perfect for us. We were... More

The octopus is out of this world. The fish is beyond delicious. The service is super friendly and with always an extra. This restaurant is an absolute must every time we come to Rome!

What a waste to go to Rome and eat food that is mediocre yet that is what you can expect in Campo dei Fiori. Fortunately this restaurant is only two blocks off of the piazza and it is fabulous. The owner is welcoming and a true joy. From the appetizers through the first and second course straight into dessert he... More

Avoid the nearby tourist traps in the various Piazzas and take the walk to this quiet little side street gem. We were there on a Saturday night and the owner and waitress were very engaging and took the time to explain in detail the menu (they both spoke English as well). Most of their business is generally on weeknights, so... More

The food is first class and so is the service fir that matter. The only problem we had was the atmosphere, the place was nearly empty on a Friday evening wich we found odd. Obviously there is not much the owners can do about that but as a customer you want the atmosphere. Bottom line is that if i ever... More

This small restaurant has excellent staff and an enthusiastic chef with flair. I took a group of 18 people there for a set dinner. The meal was beautifully presented, generous and with interesting variety and innovative ideas. The whole group enthused about the meal and the front of house staff were wonderful and very accommodating.

We found this restaurant on trip advisor just near our Hotel on Campo Fiori. The food is fantastic, the service is great. Like everything fabulous it's just of the beaten track. Really recommend it and if you do not like fish they have some meat dishes too.

Thanks to some great reviews on Trip Advisor we chose this spot for a Friday night meal. Up a small road with an understated entrance the doors open to a cracking little restaurant with Style,great food and the best wine list I have seen in Rome to date. The Oysters were excellent as was the Venus Black rice with Lobster.... More

Tucked down a laneway, this restaurant would be one for locals or visitors looking for something different. No tourist menu here. Excellent seafood prepared in modern Italian style. The grilled octopus was both crispy and soft at the same time. Venus (black) rice and lobster had some hidden treats. The monkfish nicely set off with cherry tomato. Service also first... More

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.
