I was very excited to come to this restaurant (I had read in a guide that their carbonara was the best in Rome). My first impression was good. We were in a pretty good atmosphere, surrounded by italians and tourists. Then, it started to turn more and more disappointing... Me and my partner ordered. I had my meal first, and... More

The place doesn't look that appealing but the food is definitely grandma's quality. Definitely recommended for people who are looking for genuine food and atmosphere.

Small and cozy. Food was simple and tasty. Meatballs with an order of pasta and broccoli will fill you up. Good service and inexpensive. No coffee.

This restaurant is about Novano area. Mostly locals visits and sure turists who lucky to find it. Half a litre Wine is just 5' euro. And ask for a oxtail :)

Went there for tea/dinner and had the Carbonara, and we both love our pasta and this was beautiful. Italians were sat enjoying their meal and we just scoffed it down as it was delicious.

we stopped by this place after visiting the Vatican in the morning and walking back to our hotel. It isn't fancy but the food was very good.

Picked this up from the Rough guide to Rome, so thought it might be touristy, the opposite is the truth. Lots of locals eating simple food. Very busy, very noisy and no room to move, but worth doing. My pasta excellent, my wife's rabbit stew, best ever. Very reasonable, especially for somewhere in that foody area of the city near... More

We popped in here because it looked cozy and local, and finding good food in this neighborhood can be tricky. The tables are squeezed in tightly, making it feel like you might elbow someone in the neighboring seat. The service was disinterested. It took asking 5 times to receive water. The food was the worst part- cheap and fatty secondi,... More

good food but watch the bill carefully- they want to add extra items to your bill, e.g. water, desserts. Be careful when paying your bill, they try to add extra bits to your final bill

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.
