After visiting the Vatican needed a lunch to pick us up, found Frattina on the way to the Spanish Steps and we were glad that we did, Thought we would have just have a snack but ended up having a full lunch. As per usual the food was really good and the service great, a great place to see the... More

Thursday was our free (no tours day) shopping day. Stopped off here, waited a wee while to be served. But the tray of crisps, nuts, olives and sandwiches were a surprise, but tasty none-the-less. Nice place for a short stop. Plenty of locals enjoying lunch. Decent prices for drinks..

Stopped for a spritz Aperol and we got a tray of tasty bar snacks. Average price, but great location near the Spanish Stairs.

We waited for a table outside for about 5 minutes. We needed an afternoon shot of caffeine. The restaurant is located on a busy side street full of shoppers and tourists. What else would you expect in Rome, just steps from the Trevi Fountain? The caffe latte's were very good, if not a little small. We also ordered chocolate gelato... More

Located on yet another elegant street people meander down...ergo this bar, cafe, tabacchi and purveyor of good gelato, is perfectly located to sit, sip, read and watch. Excellent and generous bar snacks. Good drinks. Did go for lunch one day..enjoyable watching the locals 'friday' lunch, generous cafe food.

Not far from Spanish steps, we though a nice casual bite to eat and drink and then hop in a taxi from the rank nearby. The place with its outdoor seating looked 'just right' but there were only seats free inside. Perhaps because we opted to go inside, we were forgotten even though the waiters were constantly passing us. Just... More

The sandwiches are tasty yet pretty small, the sitting in beautiful street makes a great atmosphere, coffee is great, ice coffee is disappointing. Ice creams are very expensive comparing to other places. Breakfast of 2 coffees and 2 paninies is ~15 euro.

We went there for ice cream but most of their menu choices were either not available, or finished. More than half of the ice cream flavors were not available, the machine for the yoghurt ice creams wasn't working. The waiter wasn't particularly professional nor apologetic for the inconvenience. Most ice creams cups were 10 Euros each which is a lot... More

Looks like one of those typical places with outdoor seating near major tourist attractions which should be avoided. But it was great - a stumble away from the Spanish Steps, great drinks at reasonable prices, gorgeous olives for nibbles and our pizza snack was perfectly acceptable. Surprisingly good all round, including the service, and we were at risk of staying... More
