We had a very nice evening

the food is very simple Classic Italian but everything we ate was very good. Roasted chicken does not sound very exciting, but it was cooked perfectly. The staff were very good as they were efficient but one never feels rushed. I would have to say for me the desserts were the highlight. They... read more

We came back 2 years later for our next trip and it didn't disappoint. We love the atmosphere, it's like being among friends at a dinner party. The wait staff provides great service and they have great home cooking. We started with fried zucchini flowers and a caprese salad. And a veal saltimbocca with porcini mushrooms and a chicken on...

This was probably our favorite dinner in Rome. It's best to get reservations we found. It was packed around 8pm. We had delicious pasta, buffalo mozzarella, and tiramisu. Rick Steves recommended it, and we definitely do, too!

We were recommended la campana by a Milanese friend...including specific dishes. It did not disappoint. dropping by at 1230 pm we were not sure if there would be room...in fact the restaurant is surprisingly large and well appointed. My wife and I share a plate of vegetable antipasto from the buffet , then had deep fried artichoke followed by pasta.... More

I have been working in Rome for five weeks. This was my first really dreadful meal. When I made the reservation I was told that the kitchen closed at 3pm on Sundays so to make sure we arrived promptly at 2.30. Once our party of four was seated at 2.15we were asked if we would like an appetiser of fried... More

It's classic Roman food, very, very good, but not fancy per se. My girlfriend and I ate there 3 times in April 2015. Every course of every meal was solid and delicious. The servers will not fawn and ask you how your first bites are. Their attitude is more like, "we're professionals, we know our food is good (because we... More

Given that we were referred to La Campana by staff from our hotel, we had high hopes. What we we found was a bit less than we hoped for. Our experience started on the wrong foot with the slow service, then bland bread and no wine choices made available to us (although I did later see a range of reds... More

This historic restaurant is charming and quaint upon first appearance. The owner/manager, however, is a nasty piece of work. The food was spectacular, but the service horrendous. We were growled at and the manager went nuts when we asked to be seated in a adjacent room that had better lighting (we were first seated under some neon chandelier that was... More

Spent two very agreeable evenings here during our recent visit. Truffles: excellent. Roast pork: sublime. Breast of veal: outstanding.

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.
