Unassuming, but absolutely fab!

Gritty Roman service, sharp, quick and with a smile accompanies great, original food - real good basic wine and a real trattoria atmosphere of a simple restaurant. Excellent value as well. That is probably the reason why we only met Italians in here and not one tourist !

I chose a meal " out of the normal" for lunch for me, veal with peas and mushrooms. One of the best meals I have ever eaten. The veal melted in your mouth and had a flavor like I can only dream of to duplicate. This place knows how to seat more people in a space than I have ever... More

I was staying down the street from this Tatoria and saw a line every night. The trip-advisor logo was in the window so we decided to give it a try. We got there just as it opened one night and got seated...this was after several earlier attempts. What a disappointment. I do not understand what people see in this place.... More

Quiet little restaurant with really good pasta! It is a bit hidden, closed on Sundays. First restaurant we have been where we have not been stressed!

We both tried pasta and loved them ! Authentic, fresh and cheap. As others have said it was very local and there were locals queuing up as well. Service can be very hit and miss in Rome but it was very good here, quick and efficient. If I go back to Rome I would return here without a shadow of... More

This place was packed with of locals. You know you are somewhere special when Romans are willing to queue outside to get a table. It's typical roman cuisine done very, very well. The atichokes alla romana were excellent and the pasta dishes we tried were very tasty (excellent Bolognese). Portions were large, and the house wine very good. Very reasonable... More

I lived near Antonio's for many years in the 8o's and went there at least 3 times a week. I almost always had the Carbonara which was the best I've ever eaten, even till today. And on tuesdays only Antonio's wife made the most incredible Melanzane alla Parmigiana (eggplant parmigian) which I never found better anywhere else in the entire... More

This is a funny place. Behind two humble windows with absolutely no sign of a restaurant (see photos), you find a fair-priced, restaurant serving very fine italian food as Mamma made it. Fine Meal for two persons for 50€. But book a table. After 8 p.m. there is a waiting line on the street.

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.
