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.

A colleague who lived and worked in Rome recommended it, otherwise I don't think it would have been in my radar. Lovely off main street Condotti, tucked away in alley, terrific food and real local dishes. Couldn't make a reservation but showed up and we were seated. We ordered off the day menu (English version) fresh mozzarella tomatoes salad, fried... More

La Campana is a very good restaurant in the heart of downtown Rome, just about 100 yards away from the famous Alfredos. The restaurant had been recommended by a friend of one of our family traveling group, and she had been going there on a regular basis for many years. The food was very good, service was great, and worth... More

Tables with white table cloth, waiters with vests and white shirts and hand written menus. I don't think this place has changed a lot in quite a long time. Perhaps the menu has been quite static too, who knows. As soon as you step through the door you can feel that this place is traditional and old school in a... More

Came here as a group of four around 9PM on a Sunday night without a reservation. We waited about 10 minutes and were seated. For a group of four, our bill was 114€. That's about 28.50€ per person. Our selections included: -red wine for two persons -sparkling water -5 entrees (one person was hungry and ordered two entrees) -2 desserts... More
