original but not friendly

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

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

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.

This is worth a visit just to have coffee or tea and have a look inside. The owners will provide you with a history of the building in English which is fascinating. Enroute from Spanish Steps to Piazza Popolo or Villa Borghese Park, its ideally suited to a stopping off place Jeff Wilkins

Rude woman receptionist. Filthy bathroom, seriously, have someone clean it not just before the restaurant opens but also from time to time. The restaurant itself is gorgeous and cozy but the service needs improvement.

A very interesting concept to have converted what once was the studio of Canova into a cafe-restaurant. We visited in December 2014 and we were rather impressed of the statues and sculptures laying around in the space which you could admire in close distance. We had coffee and not dinner and we found it to be a bit pricey. As... More

We, literally, stumbled on this restaurant when winding through the historic district. What attracted us was its rather funky appearance. To the left of the entry is a bar. To the right a small dining area on the first floor with steep stairs leading to second floor dining. The interior is filled with statuary lending the appearance of a small... More

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.
