Very good pasta

As it was a lovely night, we decided to dine outside rather than with the statues at this rather unusual restaurant. We found the pasta dishes to be delicious. I had the carbonara and my husband had the bolognese. Along with a bottle of wine and fine service, we enjoyed our evening very much.

I visited Rome for my birthday weekend. We read about this place in the Wallpaper guide. I was very excited about having lunch here. But we were very disappointed! The food was mediocre at best. The bread that we were served was stale. We were not offered any butter or olive oil to go with it. I ordered a Chicken... More

Travelling with young children we frequently get ushered inside rather than offered the alfresco dining outdoor seating. So when we were put in the backroom here we thought at least we have something unusual to look at with all the statues. Hubby and I ordered veal, my mum the chicken and my girls spaghetti. The food was sensational! The service... More

This place practice abusive price. If you order a coffee at the counter you pay €1 as it is shown in the menu at the door BUT if you sit at a table it will cost you €3,20 and they don't tell you that this is how they operate. I had one expresso and one dry brownie and was charged... More

We used this restaurant twice during our stay in Rome. The first time, we sat outside and I had a huge plate of excellent Spaghetti Carbonara, which even had me beat! The second time, in mid-afternoon, we were taken to a table upstairs. Passing a huge array of sculptures, and winding through several rooms, we were shown to a table... More

It is a restaurant in which several statues are displayed. It is very creative. But the staff is not very friendly.

I came across this restuarant as a recommended place to eat in a published city guide bought for me as a present, assuming it must be credited for this we decided to visit it for our anniversary that we celebrated whilst in Rome. The food and wine were lovely, no complaints there, however we felt that the overall experience wasnt... More

The inside looks pretty cool but that's pretty much the end of the good things I can say about Canova Tadolini. We got some beef tenderloin and lasagna. The beef was ok (because it was served with a bowl of salt and I could season it myself) and the lasagna was flavorless and cold in the center. The bathrooms were... More

Being somewhat disappointed about two highlights being under reconstruction at the same time anf for years – Spanish Steps & Trevi Fountain I decided to look for the “hidden gems”. Café Canova-Tadolino was definitely one of them. This studio of the 19th c. master and his less outstanding pupil is stunning, full of models for their sometimes monumental works. I... More

The place is worth visiting, because of the innumerous historical surroundings -mainly statues. Otherwise, it is expensive for the overall value and the service is indifferent -if not rude. Choose something small to eat, just for the experience.

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.
