Our apartment was only few minutes away. The restaurant from outside looks very unpretentious. They present daily menu according to available ingredients. Also inside a display of fresh vegetables, fish and seafood and desserts. Could definitely improve on the reservation and overall floor management. But after all it is Italy. Food was very good. Simple but good. Our waiter (... More

Reputed to be the oldest trattoria in Rome. We had an excellent meal with attentive waiters. Fried zucchini, swordfish, tagliolini, lasagne, risotto with shrimps, grilled sweetbreads. All beautifully cooked and served. Very good house wine Montepulciano. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

We had found this restaurant highly recommended by Frommer 2015. He is never wrong. This is the oldest ongoing restaurant in Rome built originally in 1580. The food recommendations were terrific. My wife had fresh skate grilled to perfection and I had their rabbit. We had wonderful Italian appetizers and a great Primo pasta dish and of course desserts. And... More

Fabulous restaurant. Went here based on reviews. We were extremely happy with our dinner. The wine was fantastic, attentive waiter and the food was delicious. It was first dinner in Italy for my 2 teenage boys and they thoroughly enjoyed it! I cannot wait to return .

We visited this restaurant on our second night in Rome as recommended by our hotel which was close by. I had the prawns and my husband had pasta followed by veal. We really enjoyed the food, wine, service and atmosphere and would recommend!

We are great fans of the Campana in Rome. The food is delicious, service is very competent and the place is quiet and peaceful. Exactly the opposite of so many snobbish and overrated restaurants that seem to flourish everywhere.

Dined there twice during one week in Rome. Interestingly, both nights we saw multi-generation American families dining there and both were dressed for an evening out. Attentive service, menu that changes based upon what is seasonal and fresh. Lovely fresh items on display as you enter restaurant. Clearly popular with repeat diners. Very convenient to our hotel, Hotel Portoghesi.

In 'Rough Guide' they say the waiters can seem surly-true. However, by the third night they are treating you like an old friend. There are no set courses on the menu and the daily changes are written in. The fresh antipasto is full of vegetables and wonderful. Try the fried zucchini flowers which are filled with cheese. Oh and artichokes,... More

Campana is advertised as the oldest restaurant in Rome. It serves “classic” Roman cuisine. We ate there one dinner on our recent visit to Rome. It’s very simple to sum up our meal – good simple Italian cuisine, served in a friendly atmosphere. At 7:30 when we got there, it quickly filled up with tourists. I expected this, but I... 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.
