Fantastic local Restaurant

We almost walked past the restaurant it was so well tucked away and assuming but the food did not disappoint. A friendly local ran restaurant by the sweetest couple, with the most eclectic mix of art you've ever seen on the walls. The wine and food were very reasonable, tasty and authentic... read more

It a cozy place, with really authentic food. The owner is really nice,friendly, generous and suggested along with the chef the best to have in their restaurant. The risotto with shrimps was superb, one of the best i have had, not to forget the marvelous ravioli with spinach and ricotta cheese and the best Bresaola ever.

We found it through trip adviser by looking at what was near by. There were three of us and it cost about €100 but we really indulged. The chef gave us samples of about 6 starters! 2 ordered pastas for the main and both were perfect. The shrimp in the pasta was especially impressive as it's so often over cooked... More

Fantastic food, beautifully presented, good value and the owner was very friendly, patient and helpful. It's a cozy place with lots of regulars so get there early or make a reservation. It's only a simple entrance, which is usually closed so you really have to look for it.

Warning - VERY easy to miss. Coming down from Popolo it is on the right just after the square leading to the bridge. Lovely lady in charge with some English. The menu is completely in Italian and because it is local dishes not that easy to translate. Beautiful home cooked pasta. Lots of flavoursand colour - watch out for the... More

Found it by tripadvisor. And yes I love such places- small and cozy and owner (very nice and pretty edging women) asked about order and opened new bottle for just two glasses of it and the chef came out to check if we are impressed by his creature or not. And yes we were impressed. Old school. Delicious.

I have been here more than once in the last couple of years. It doesn't fail to surprise me. I am not sure which kind of secret and special ingredients they use, but I have never tasted something so good in my life.

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 wine we had in Rome. Yes, the wine list... 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

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.
