Italian experience, tasty food

We saw a line in front of the door and we assumed that it is worth the wait. So we waited. When we got in, the personnel was really fast and brought us some of the best pasta we have ever ate. Don t expect an amazing service, don t come here to dine, simply come and taste some really... read more

Recommended to us by a local Roman (our airbnb host). So glad he recommended this place to us and we tried it on our last night! There will most likely be a line...I don't know if you can make a reservation but it's worth the wait. It's a small place that cooks true Italian food and offers more than just... More

Walking in you think this is it...An original old style osteria that's bound to be great. But, no! The pasta was less than mediocre, the carboanara sauce was overcooked and the amatriciana sauce was tasteless an so were the meatballs. I felt like I had walked into a well disguised tourist trap.

The food is great and inexpensive. Always full and people waiting for a table (you can't make a booking). Every space in the small room where you can put in a table and chair is used. The staff is efficient but you might think that they are almost rude. Live with it or go somewhere else, that is the way... More

A local recommended this restaurant and we may have been the only tourists there. Tight and noisy - fantastic atmosphere. Food was incredible, meals large and cheap. Probably our favourite restaurant in Rome.

We went for a late lunch at 3pm after St. Peter's and the Vatican museum. It is cramped and noisy, and full of atmosphere because of it. A real local haunt. I had the carbonara, the best I've had. Very reasonably priced.

You can try only pasta and antioasti there. There were no deserts or even coffee. Attentiin to the clients is poor. The pasta which we ate was so simple thar you cannot call it restaurant food. There are a lot of better places not far from this place. Do not waste your time and money.

If you hate the tourist spot this is a good spot to try. We were clearly the only Americans in the joint. Quaint atmosphere, good (not great, but good) house red. No English speakers and not terribly expensive but not bargain basement either.

What I love about Rome is discovering this amazing restaurants that all the locals go to. This hostaria is so discreet you could almost walk past it ! But once inside the simple decor and bustle creates for an abundance of atmosphere. The menu is simple but inviting, we shared a few amazing pasta dishes with sauce and one with... More

We went there for lunch after recommendations from friends. They put a lot of tables into the small space but were still completely packed. No wonder since the food is fantastic! Honest and no nonsense kind of food. The crowd was mainly locals and the occasional foodie tourist. We had great pasta peppe, fantastic rabbit, very simple but very tasty... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

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.
