Nice location, fairly expensive, don´t eat meat.

I took a friend for dinner. On this special occasion I had a first course of Pasta which was very good. Disappointing, however, was the meat course. Manzo (oxen) with potatoes. The meat was extremely fatty and tasted mainly of being fried too long and too hot (at 20€ for this course). the... read more

We happened upon ara pacis la capricciosa on New Year's Eve in Rome. We were just a walking around looking for a good spot to eat and ara pacis beckoned to us with its cute patio. It was too cold to eat outside but we were given a warm welcome and the staff was so accommodating and friendly! Our waiter... More

One of the best meals we had in Rome. Staff was accommodating and pleasant. I ordered something not on the menu thought the ingredients were. Staff very accommodating. Would return on next visit to Rome!

Six months prior I had been to Rome with two friends and found Ara Pacis Ristorante. Our experience was the best and I previously wrote a review. Now I was in Rome with my adult son for one night only and I wanted to share this restaurant and its staff, primarily a waiter named Bissie, with him. Once again the... More

Had dinner on recommendation from hotel concierge. The outside seating was full (about 100 seats) so we had to wait a couple of minutes for a seat. This was a good sign as the restaurant next door was empty. Our waiter was charming and very friendly, the menu extensive and the wine list varied. The restaurant itself was a bit... More

We found this delightful ristorante by accident as we were looking for a place to eat that was open before 7:00PM. Our waiter, Bissie from Albania, was a jewel and our dinners were superb, as was the atmosphere sitting on the outdoor veranda. My friend's birthday was in 2 more days and she insisted we go back to see Bissie... More

We just popped in here for a little shopping break, some serious caffe and Pellegrino. Our waiter was old-school, uvuncular, jovial, sweet. (Kind of like the restaurant itself.) We only had a fruit salad and a lemon sorbet, but were left with a really nice impression of the place and will be back for dinner on our next trip to... More

Dears, You have to visit Ara Pacis one of a kind in service and food. I requested the olive oil with red chilli pepper assuming its the normal one we order everywhere and the waiter informed me it's little extra chilli but I didn't take him seriously, once I tasted a small drop I got burnt but it taste amazing...

I happened to walk along Via del Corso in Rome for some shopping with my family and my wife got hungry and so we decided, although I rather prefer to dine in other kind of restaurants, to have a bite at the Ara Pacis. We were welcome in a very kind way and given a table in the outdoor veranda,... More

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.
