We went here for what we expected to be a leisurely Sunday lunch with our kids, and were surprised when everything came to the table at once (one antipasto, two primi and two secondi) taking up all the space at once and ensuring half the food was cold by the time we got to it. Perhaps we ordered poorly? The... More

Often very full--of locals and Romans, especially after 8 or 9 in the evening. Traditional Roman fare, with an excellent range of antipasti to be chosen buffet style. Not for dieters or strict vegetarians. Polite and efficient (good, old-fashioned) service. A place where you can still get cervelli fritti.

I really liked the service. The waiter was fantastic and really funny, if I lived in Rome we would go back there all the time just for him. The food was very good too. I had lamb which I did not like very much, it was a bit oily but I tried my mum's and my husband's food and it... More

We went there because its supposed to be the oldest restaurant in Rome and also heard about the fried artichoke and Zucchini flowers . The artichoke was a bit letdown , it was a bit over fried but the zucchini flowers with cheese stuffing was yummy . It was not crowded when we were there and therefore the service was... More

It is Amazing how good and constant quality you can get in this Roman Oldest Restaurant ( there since the 1550 ) . Try only to be there when the crowd is gone or not yet come . We normally eat late , so there is no problem but you can go even early ( say 7:00 / 7:30 pm... More

My family and I eat here at least once on every Rome trip. It is always among the top meals. It is amazing to me that the oldest restaurant in Rome can continue to impress year after year but it does. Don't miss this place when in Rome.

First, let me say this restaurant is charming and the owners make special effort to make you feel welcome. Unfortunately, our first waiter was not of the like mind. He was surly at best and made us feel like we were intruding. I had a short talk with the owner, Paulo, who was very apologetic and immediately replaced the waiter... More

Every trip to Rome includes a trip to La Campana. First trip 30 years ago and been going ever since. Had zuccha di fiori (incredible) every trip! Waiters are friendly and help with language barriers. Antipasti set up in first room is always a treat.
