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

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.

We came to this restaurant for lunch and had a great table out the front. The menu is quite expensive but they offer a 15 euro set lunch menu (entree main and wine) which was delicious and great value for money. We will be back!

The only complaint I have with this place is that the outside seating is on a rocky slope, and it's all uneven. The food was delicious and the wait staff was really nice.

Nice little restaurant near Piazza Barberini with delicious fresh authentic Italian food. The pastas were fabulous as was the red house wine and the grilled vegetables were a nice accompaniment.

We had a great lunch at this charming casual restaurant close to the Pantheon. My wife and I both had spaghetti vongole and the kids had spaghetti bolognese. Everything was the delicious. Service was great as well!

My husband and I went here based on a recommendation from a flight attendant. We had two lovely meals here during our trip to Rome. The waiters are so polite and will let you be-- remember if you need something to ask! The ambience is excellent. The first time we eat there it was full of locals while the second... More

In a neighborhood full of charm and many small restaurants, this is one - more out of the way than most - which excels. The outdoor dining is especially pleasant. The menu is interesting and varied (the shellfish choices are great). The food is well-prepared and well-served. If your path takes you anywhere near the area north of the Pantheon,... More

This was one of our favorite restaurants in Rome! My family loved the complimentary glasses of prosecco and all of our meals were delicious, especially the popular spaghetti dish with cheese and pepper. The tiramisu was to die for. What put this place over the top was the service and the friendliness of the wait staff. It was nice to... More

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.
