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.

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

Sometimes things are just not going well, and you need a friend to look out for you. Sometimes you are lost and tired and need someone to look out for you. La Focaccia made my day so so so much better. Typical Italian food and when you walk in and see the guy rolling dough, you know you are in... More

Did a tour with some Brother Legionaires of the Catholic Church and after seeing a lot of churches and sites we went here for lunch and had outstanding pizza and anti pasta. You really can't go wrong here. The owner even provided a discount becuase we were with two brothers.

We have eaten 3 meals here this week and have enjoyed everyone of them. Their pizzas are amazing and have a great selection of other meals too. If you are in the area I suggest coming here.

La Focaccia was recommend by our hotel owners as a place that locals like to eat. We had a hard time finding it but when we did it was worth the hunt. Their pasta carbonara and pizzas were excellent. We were only in Rome for 3 days and liked it so much we ate their twice.

The worst meal during two weeks in Italy. The special of the day - Raviolli was disgusting - bitter and totally inedible. When told the server, he was like bad for you. Never again.

Happened upon this place at lunch time and decided to eat there without much checking. You could see a great old fashioned pizza oven inside so two of use chose pizzas. Definitely better than average pizzas. Wine list was a bit disappointing. If you want a pizza it's a place to try.

Sort of a cross between traditional Roman and Neapolitan pizzas. Easy-going, used to be an English-style pub, not that it means anything, but you'll see it in the decor. For being this close to Piazza Navona (never eat or drink there, please, I beg you), this is fantastic.
