If you want to discover the true soul of Rome, The Tavern 48 is the place for you. Our restaurant in the historic center of the Eternal City, just steps from the famous Piazza Navona, near the Pantheon, never ceases to surprise and give genuine emotions to all gourmets who seek authentic dishes and traditional Roman cuisine. Born in November 1990 with the philosophy of putting professionalism and experience at the service of our clients, offering unique moments to those looking for quality cuisine at a good price, without ever forgetting the enthusiasm and passion for our work. Small but cozy, in a simple and great attention to detail, our restaurant has thirty-eight seats, divided into two rooms with air conditioning, ideal for business lunches, but also to celebrate love in beautiful intimate and romantic evenings. For all those who, instead, prefer to eat their meal Outdoor, will benefit, during the summer, an outdoor space that can accommodate up to twenty places where you can have a special atmosphere, having as frame the quiet serene way Spaniards. The Tavern Restaurant 48: Quality, professionalism and courtesy are the commitments we make to all our customers so make unforgettable every moment spent with us. Welcome to our tables!

We had an outstanding dining experience Sunday evening while visiting La Tavernetta 48. We started with the Orange salmon followed by spaghetti with bacon and egg.

My wife and I were told about La Tavernetta 48 by others. We tried it our first day in Rome and went again two days later. The place can be tricky to find, but it is only about 2-3 minutes walk from the Pantheon. The area is seculed but safe. The food is outstanding, the prices reasonable and the service... More

Read reviews of this restaurant before coming to Rome and booked it for our Wedding Anniversary. It was everything we hoped to find - great food, charming staff and a beautiful little place to sit. We had a plate of mixed meats, bread and salad to start followed by the seafood risotto for me and a fillet steak with gorgonzola... More

We selected this restaurant based on proximity to our hotel and on positive tripadvisor reviews. We made a reservation for 8.00pm and when we arrived we were greeted... More

We visited this restaurant after hearing great reviews and we weren't disappointed! We liked it so much that we went twice while in Rome, the second time being on Valentines Day! The food was amazing and the service was excellent. The waiter was phenomenal and so attentive. Couldn't have asked for a nicer dining experience!

It was our last night in Rome and we wanted to make the last meal count! After walking for over an hour it was safe to say our appetite was growing. We didn't want to 'gamble' when choosing a restaurant as it was our last meal so we took our time. Staying close to Piazza Navona, we looked beyond that... More

I work in the neighborhood and after passing by today and reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I chose this restaurant for dinner over a couple others around the corner I had been thinking about, and I couldn't have been happier with my choice or my evening.

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.
