Excellent food, wonderful Baba Ganoush!

We thought this was a lovely and very atmospheric place to eat, and full of locals. The Baba Ganoush on offer for starters was excellent, husband really enjoyed his spaghetti with lightly curried / spiced shrimps, had a wonderful, freshly made upside down cake for dessert, and the best bottle of... read more

very pleasant staff, food was ok however it reminded us of faulty towers... The small lamps of the table had burnt shades and flickered whenever you touched the table, no wine offered and when asked I was delivered a wine stained manky list, the food (steak) came with just a pile of rocket no sides (or option of), when asking...

My husband located this little cost taverna which surprised me in every way. The owner was an absolutely lovely lady who was super helpful with the menu and spoke great English (our Italian was poor to say the least). The food was absolutely outstanding. So delicious and beautifully presented. I thought it was truly 5 star food. Great value for... More

Usually, my wife and I would try to see as many places as possible, and not to return to the same restaurant during one stay. Not this time though! And let me share as to why .... Last night we went to Taverna Ripetta. We had a starter, and amazing meat. It was actually so amazing that we decided to... More

We went here our last night in Rome. The waitress seated us and gave us the menu. Then the chef (who I suspect is also the owner) came out and said he could make us anything we liked, even items not on the menu. We asked if he could do artichoke for appetizer, since it was in season. It wasn’t... More

On the look-out for somewhere to eat a nice tasty lunch, eight of us descended on this unprepossessing restaurant. Once inside, we were made extremely welcome by the lady owner and settled down to enjoy a truly exceptional meal. Our mixed platters of salami, prosciutto and cheese were huge and first class, as were our falafel, hummus and Aubergine starters.... More

We went here based on the Good reviews here on the Tripadvisor but we weren't very happy. The place looks alright, a bit dated though. I think the chef came and took our order, he was very jovial and nice. But the food wasn't great. We tried some Black Rice and a Steak which were alright, but not more than... More

All of our favourite restaurants that we usually have lunch or dine at when visiting Rome, were closed in the end of August. We began investigating Tripadvisor for new places and looked specifically for a restaurant in the Piazza di Spagna area where we lived. Our choice fell on Taverna Ripetta almost by chance but we soon realized that this... More

This is a smaller restaurant, in what appears to be an authentic setting. We had a late dinner here and ate light, but everything they brought us was simple and delicious. It was actually our first meal in Italy and we were struggling with the menu. The staff could see it - the waitress was very helpful and the chef... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
