A typical tratatoria. We ordered fresh fish and spaghetti fungi. Affordable prices for very tasty food. House wine was very nice also. A 10 minute walk from Pantheon , nice stroll for the perfect dinner.

Busy restaurant frequented by locals and tourists alike. Food was lovely: I'd describe it as slightly rustic, very traditional and great quality. The menu was a little challenging (we don't speak Italian) and even the translated copy was a bit tough... but the waiter was helpful and for me that just adds to the fun!

We ate: Truffle pasta Artichoke ravioli Ox tail Garden salad Tiramisu All of the plates were delicious and price is right. Only issue was they gave messed up the wine order. I only wanted smaller size house wine but they gave me the bottle but it was so cheap no worries.

Came here based on a recommendation by a friend. The food here was quite good and reasonably priced, ordered a spaghetti Bolognaise for around 10E and water for around 2-3E at night just as a light meal. Food came faster than usual and the waiters were very attentive, patrolling the seats every 30 seconds or so. The waiter I had... More

It doesn't look that old from the inside, but history tells it's the oldest in Rome and it's really cool to eat there. That alone could seal it, but the fact is that we've had an excellent dinner featuring typical Roman food, the homemade tiramisu was excellent (the real deal) and we were lucky that our waiter was in good...

After searching online recommendations for a Sunday lunch in Rome we settled for La Campana - made a reservation online and received a fast response. We arrived as it opened to a virtually empty dining room.The restaurant soon filled up with predominantly locals - so not very touristy. There are some classic Roman dishes on the menu and a wide...

If anything, better than my last visit. Varied menu, plenty of fresh choice so good food. And excellent service from people who like you to enjoy a meal with the locals in an informal pleasant atmosphere.

We had read great reviews about this restaurant and headed off for lunch on a wintery day last month. The restaurant is well staffed with experienced waiters and although not terribly friendly, were very helpful and attentive. The mixed vegetable antipasta is an absolute must, beautiful to look at, but better to eat ! The rest of the meal was... More
