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.

Great spot for dinner

We read the trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed. This is a great spot for dinner. We loved the bruschetta before dinner and all the pasta dishes we selected were delicious. The waiters were friendly and helpful, and we were never rushed through our meal. The entire dinner, with a bottle... read more

We are a well travelled family of four from Montreal, which includes our two sons 15 and 18. Based on the reviews, we tried this restaurant located on a quiet side street, 50 feet away from another much reviewed eatery (Barocco). The starters were good: the Bruschetta fresh and tasty and the cold meat platters well presented. The main dishes... More

Nice and cozy restaurant near pantheon and piazza navona. For lunch they have a great offer,2 courses with wine and water for 15 euros. Food was great, one of us had baked sea bass and that was amazing. Apart from below average salad everything we had was really good. Would definitely recommend this place.

Excellent food and very friendly staff. The perfect restaurant far enough from the tourist crowd. Good choice of wine and Italian specialties.

Regardless of your tastes in food you will find the service, variety, and food preparation to be exceptional. Travernetta 48 serves exceptional authenitic Italian food that is fairly priced. My family of four ate for around 60€ including an appetizer. If you want to have a great meal and great service in a quite location near the pantheon then choose... More

Had the gnocchi with tomato sauce with mozzerella, bruschetta with the freshest ripest tomatoes and crunchy grilled bread, fish, beef carpaccio. This was by far the tastiest of all the Rome meals so far! Grazie!

The place was nice and people were friendly. It was located off the maim streets in a back alley. So not much auto or foot traffic in the area. The service was really slow. Slower than most other Italian restaurants I have been to in the area. I decided I would try the steak to mix things up since I... More

As an Italian traveling through Europe this was the best italian restaurant I ate at. We hadn't booked, but managed to get a small table for two inside, it was pretty much full. It's located on a picturesque little side street a short distance from other bustling restaurants, and very central. Speghetti alle vongole is my favourite dish, and here... More

This secluded street harbors a very welcoming restaurant in La Tavernetta that is also a great value. It features classic Roman standards as well as some more recently added fish and seafood dishes. The house wines are fine and included in the pris fix lunches. We have come several times and loved it every time.

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.
