Great service and kid friendly.

Great service and excellent assorted appetizers. Portion was small but tasted excellent. We wanted to go next door to ad hoc but it was fully booked but we weren't disappointed because ate here.

Super nice food and excellent service. If we had discovered this restaurant earlier (and not the last night), we would probably eat here every night, as there's different to find good food in Rome.

We arrived late with no reservation, the owner accommodated us no problem. We ordered three courses all of which were amazing. The staff were very friendly and spoke English. The bill was very reasonable including a bottle of fantastic Chianti. Highly recommended.

We tried this restaurant on recommendation from Tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. I had Pear Ravioli with a delicate orange based sauce just to be adventurous and it was excellent. My better half had Osso Buco stew. Great selection of wines and great home made Roman food.

We found this wonderful restaurant by surprise. The food was great, the staff was extremely friendly and took great care of us. Mario is full of energy and had great recommendations! Very family friendly too. Only complaint would be the a/c could be a little cooler on these warm Rome nights but otherwise was wonderful.

The waiter is not rude, he is just smart and very eager to help people making their choice. The food is great with excellent pastas and very tasty secondi piatti. Recommend the calamari and the saltimbocca ala romana, but the filetto di manzo was great too (although a little sauce would accompany it better). A very good place with authentic... More

We ate in several restaurants in Rome, all of which were lovely. We popped in here for a quick lunch, a huge mistake. We were the only people in there. My son asked for spaghetti arrabiata to which he was told he could not have. He asked for spaghetti with plain tomato sauce to which he was told he also... More

Our last night in Rome. We visited three previous restaurants this evening trying to find one that would fit the mood. Which shouldn't have been that hard. We wanted a classical Italian restaurant with great service. I won't bother naming the others but we went on trip advisor following reviews and walked through the area and were disappointed with either... 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.
