A great deal of history and tradition. Good service, nice ambiance. Good quality prime ingredients on display. Reasonable prices. Food tastes well but is overrated. No attention to food aesthetics, dishes look like prison food.

We visited La Campana on our first evening in Rome and enjoyed this Italian run trattoria serving great authentic cuisine. Having read about this restaurant in a feature on the guardian website we were amazed not only how busy it was but by the amount of Italians and local people, which in my opinion is always a good sign!

This restaurant had been recommended by an acquaintance of my sister-in-law as a must when in Rome. We made reservations and found La Campana was a short walk from the hotel. We were welcomed warmly and seated and felt throughout the meal that we were valued regulars. My meal was delicious and all at the table felt the same way.... More

We read about this restaurant from trip advisor and decided to try it out during lunch time. It opens at 12.30pm and they will not let you enter even to take a seat before that time. I ordered the veal escalope, and my husband took the rabbit cacciatore. We also took the deep fried courgette flowers as an appetiser. The... More

Food was ok and prices were reasonable. I wouldn't say delicious and definitely not the best food I've had in Rome. The waiter was very friendly but the food was ordinary. We were the only customers at 19:30 on a Friday night which was a bit concerning. We did not order bread but this was placed on our table and... More

This restaurant lives on its reputation as being the oldest in Rome. There wasn't really anything wrong with the meal or the evening, it just wasn't anything special. Food was OK; the salad never materialised at all but we were invited to help ourselves to the vegetable buffet which was very good; the courgette flowers were too oily and the... More

This small restaurant has been serving classic Roman fare for many decades but it had lost its glamour when we visited. The appetizer mushrooms were soggy,zucchini blossoms were more cheese than blossoms and the much recommended ravioli with sage was average.

The pasta primi were the highlights, and have characteristic choices like caci e pepe, carbonara, amatriciana, and al vongole. The secondi were very nice as well. Not a spot for a quiet, romantic evening, but worthwhile for foodies who like the hub-bub of a busy resto.

This is my husband's top restaurant choice in Rome. We always go here for the best Roman cuisine, like carciofi alla giudìa, paiata, coda alla vaccinara, fried brain, animella and so on. He definitely would eat here every night if he could. We keep going back time and time again. The waiters are friendly, funny and the culinary experience is... More

It is obvious that a lot of restaurants in Rome have figured out how to manipulate travel websites, (hint, this one) to get better rankings than they deserve in order to bag tourists. Happy to say, La Campana is not one of them. The food is quite good in quality and value. You'll get a good meal for your money... More
