Great family lunch near to lots of attractions

This restaurant is located very close to Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, I would highly recommend that you step a little off the beaten track and into the pleasant little piazza where it is located.

Nice friendly restaurant ideal for our family lunch. Staff were very friendly and the pizza was the best in Rome, according to one of our boys. The renovations/scaffolding to the outside of the building are a little off putting, but only a minor issue.

We went here on recommendation from our guidebook, however it was quite disappointing and by some measure the worst meal in Rome. The bruschetta was soggy, the mozzarella had an unusual texture and didn't taste right, and the pizza was also soggy in the middle. We've tasted much better versions of all these at a standard Italian restaurant back in... More

The pizza was great, the crust was the best we have had. Every pasta dish was excellent. We came here twice; it was that good. I never go to the same place twice when there are so many restaurants, but you are not guaranteed a good meal just because you are in Rome. This place is frequented by locals and... More

My wife and I stumbled into La Focaccia on our last night in Rome looking for a place to sit and eat close to our hotel at Piazza Navona. The exterior of the building was undergoing some renovation so it did't look the greatest, but the menu looked good and the price was right. We ordered the bruschetta as an... More

Looking at its small interior and the main space being on the basement this 4pts might be perceived as a generous grade but while talking about Rome and especially about the all-narrow-street Piazza Navona area, you will not have spacious halls at all. So, with respect to the standards of the immediate environs, its physical deficiencies lose their importance as... More

Came here after reading a recommendation in the Lonely Planet guide. Quite hidden - we walked past it the first time! Service was quick and food was great. Recommend the pizza and calzone - that's what pizza should always be like! :-) then had tiramisu for dessert, very good. Very friendly waiter and cosy setting. Definitely recommend this place.

I have visited this restaurant since 2002 and I still like it. It's very simple, really Italian and nice. The great thing is that you get good food, attention, service and you don't get ruined. The pastas and pizzas are to be recommended. The house wine is plain and sparkling which suits the Italian food very well. If you are... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
