This restaurant lives on its reputation as being the oldest in Rome. There wasn't really anything wrong with the meal or the evening, it just wasn't anything special. Food was OK; the salad never materialised at all but we were invited to help ourselves to the vegetable buffet which was very good; the courgette flowers were too oily and the... More

This small restaurant has been serving classic Roman fare for many decades but it had lost its glamour when we visited. The appetizer mushrooms were soggy,zucchini blossoms were more cheese than blossoms and the much recommended ravioli with sage was average.

The pasta primi were the highlights, and have characteristic choices like caci e pepe, carbonara, amatriciana, and al vongole. The secondi were very nice as well. Not a spot for a quiet, romantic evening, but worthwhile for foodies who like the hub-bub of a busy resto.

This is my husband's top restaurant choice in Rome. We always go here for the best Roman cuisine, like carciofi alla giudìa, paiata, coda alla vaccinara, fried brain, animella and so on. He definitely would eat here every night if he could. We keep going back time and time again. The waiters are friendly, funny and the culinary experience is... More

It is obvious that a lot of restaurants in Rome have figured out how to manipulate travel websites, (hint, this one) to get better rankings than they deserve in order to bag tourists. Happy to say, La Campana is not one of them. The food is quite good in quality and value. You'll get a good meal for your money... More

Also the oldest restaurant. Mouthwatering dishes in local cuisine and reasonable prices. Full of locals as well as tourists and open on Sunday unlike many others.

Children and adults enjoyed a wonderful meal here - very fresh and flavoursome and felt like a local - not a touristy place at all.

I went here because the reviews of Monte Bianco were so good and I have been on the hunt for this delightful dessert since I had it 10 years ago in Rome. Sadly, we got there late and they were all out but I had the Cacio e Pepe and it was fantastic! Our waiter was lovely. He told us... More

The waiter in this traditional restaurant was extremely rude. He kept grunting at us when we ordered food like an animal and shouted at my friend when he pronounced his dish wrong in Italian. The service was almost shoved into your hands rather than laid on the table and the general feeling of the waiter was to get us out... More
