Good, straightforward option

A nice dinner experience with a hustling waitstaff and good, honest food. You can tell by looking at the menu it's not a tourist trap. Classic Roman cuisine with daily changes. Fried zucchini flowers were good. Try the classic pastas--cacio e pepe and amatriciana. Oxtail (coda alla vaccinara... read more

Really interesting menu with a number of traditional dishes. Our table of five went with a variety of dishes including ox tail, pasta and veal. The deserts are amazing :o) Not sure about all the staff but our waiter spoke next to no English. Problem was main courses came out, then one person got two entrees which were for sharing,... More

We asked at our front desk for a nice restaurant and they sent us to La Campana. The restaurant looked nice and had a good menu, but we had a poor experience. After ordering the osso buco the waiter asked if I also wanted some pasta. I said why not and ordered. After about 5 mins two plates of pasta... More

The place is definitely not nice or romantic in the way you may be lloking for in Roma, but the staff is really nice and the food is definitely local and typical. Worth mentioning, it is also really good!

Food and service were great. This is a terrific alternative to the craziness of some of the larger Rome restaurants. Wide selection of food all well prepared and served.

Came here on a family city break. Hate going to the busy tourist restaurants so look for local places. Ate Fried zucchini, swordfish, tagliolini, lasagne, risotto with shrimps, grilled sweetbreads. house wine was very good and food was excellent. Swordfish was thin slices and not what I was expecting but the quality was good. Waiters also friendly, Would recommend

La Campana was recommended by the concierge of Hotel San Carlo after I requested a "non-touriste ristorante" and it proved to be my favorite meal in all of Italy. What I wouldn't do to have those fried artichokes again! I also had the "chef recommended" spaghetti with anchovies which is very similar to what my grandmother used to prepare. The... More

We went to La Campana twice. We lived not too far from the restaurant and we like its hearty dishes. The dishes are not those of fine-dining but rather they are more like home-cooked meals (really good ones of course). We tried the risotto with scampi (Yum!), fettuccine (good), deep-fried veges (Yum!), lamb chops (average), fried artichokes (not too good...),... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
