Had lunch here on the recommendation of hotel staff and was I disappointed ! The interior may be charming with all these marble statues etc, but the place evokes a gallery rather than a restaurant. Plus the food was really disappointing, for instance the rice that came with prawns (in a curry sauce) was quite undercooked. Prices are high and... More

Stopped here for a quick break from a day of shopping. Big big mistake. My last lunch in Rome had to be terrible Pasta carbonara was salty and my husbands lemon pepper linguine was also salty. Worse cappuccino I have had in all of Italy.

We met a very nice gentleman on the train from Milan to Rome, and he told us about this restaurant. We were in Italy for 12 days and this was the favorite meal of all six of us who were traveling together. This location was the former home and studio of Antonio Canova. His most promising pupil was Andamo Tadolini.... More

We walked by this place by accident, since it was close to our hotel. We sat down on the patio and were ready to order.... when my husband discovered a few random statues on the inside - Rome I'm telling you! We enjoyed having lunch with a few stony popes and the food was the best meal we had in... More

We stayed in Rome for one week and we visited this place twice, because we found it to be very interesting, different and unusual. Our first visit was for coffe and desert and the second for drink, so we don't have an opinion on the food. As for the sweets they were delicious and very very fresh. The lady in... More

This place used to be some famous sculpture, Antonio Canova's studio. Walking into the place, the sculpture might seem overwhelming, but this is only because I didn't understand why so much sculpture was all over the place. The food was very good and very reasonably priced considering this is an expensive area of the City (2 blocks from the Spanish... More

Right next to the Fontana del Babuino is the Canova Tadolini museum and workshop belonging to the late Antonio Canova and his student AdamoTadolini. Since then four generations have worked in this space creating sculptures. What you see inside today is the molds that were made to create the sculptures. Be sure to wander around the tiny rooms and nooks... More

I just stop by for a quick breakfast so cannot judge really the menu and quality of entrees and appetizers, but it was a fantastic experience to enjoy my juice and toast staring at the work of Canova all around me. I typically prefer to sit outdoor whenever possible, but in this case I believe it is a MUST to... More
