Had such a lovely meal when staying near by. The restaurant looked lovely with a nice menu with a good selection of food. The steak was particularly amazing (cooked to perfection). Had a great wine selection and as we came to expect in Rome lovely deserts! If you would like a reasonably priced amazing meal with friendly staff in this... More

Had a really nice dinner here. Not a huge restaurant and it seemed to be filled with locals rather than tourists. High quality food and wine and a very nice setting. The wait staff were all very friendly and helpful with splitting our bill. A great experience for a night out.

We tried this gem for lunch without knowing what we were in for.. We returned the next day for dinner as we were so impressed! The food is amazing with a very efficient and friendly service and I must say we had one of the best desserts I've ever tasted! A very particular pistachio cream... Justus wow!

We wanted a place near our hotel on Via del Corso between Piazza del Populo and the Spanish Steps and wanted a restaurant that was really Roman....not all that easy to find these days. This was it. It was small, intimate, very nicely appointed; the service was flawless and the food was both authentic and creative. I had an Octopus... More

What a find! Thanks Lonely Planet. Small but they accommodated us without a booking when we arrived as they opened up for the evening. Obviously a favourite with the locals. Excellent and different choices on the menu to the usual tourist fare of pasta and pizza. Great service - friendly staff, excellent local produce & drinks.

The food is very good here; fresh, simply prepared and well presented. The stuffed courgette flowers were delicious as was the salt cod and fillet steak. We enjoyed our meal so much we went for dinner a second evening while staying at the First Luxury Art Hotel across the street. The salmon starter, lamb, veal and tiramisu were excellent. The...

I was in this place having dinner in January (it is usually necessary to make a reservation) and I loved it. The food is really good, the decoration is cosy and the service is excellent. It is definately the best dinner I have had in Rome so far.

We loved La Buca di Ripetta. We had tried to get a reservation at a nearby restaurant, but were unsuccessful. I walked up the street and found La Buca di Ripetta. We were very pleasantly surprised. The quality of the food and the ambience were both terrific. And the service was excellent. We would have gone back if we had... More

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.
