Nice food, nice atmosphere, great service good price

Nice food, nice atmosphere and decor, excellent service, a fun night out. Food is good, but wouldn't call it outstanding . We had an excellent waiter who lifted our night from good to excellent. We thought good value.

I ate at this trattoria twice during a short break in Rome and enjoyed both meals immensely. The menu is seasonal and contains some interesting local dishes e.g. I had some excellent deep-fried artichokes with a milky cheese dressing as an antipasto - not complicated but unusual and really well executed. Similarly, the octopus carpaccio was beautifully sliced and dressed.... More

Found this restaurant by chance, having a walk close to our Hotel. I had fried zucchini flowers with a carrot cream followed by ravioli stuffed with pears. My husband had aubergine stuffed ravioli followed by chargrilled squid and salad. Everything was delicious. Portions a little small however more than ample if you are having 3 courses. Staff were friendly and... More

Was in the are after a long day and with high hopes we stopped here. The food was poor all around. Caprese salad was bland (tomatoes terribly underripe) and the fried artichoke was average. I know it's out of season for them but the dish suffered more from technique than seasonality. Gnocchi with squash and squash blossoms was good but... More

Small restaurant with a good atmosphere. Brilliant service, explained all the dishes with a lot of passion for their food and helped with the wine choice. The mixed starter was fantastic and enough for two people. The osso bucco was flavourful and tender and the veal pasta Cooke deity out tomatoes was amazing. The recommended Sicilian wine was also very... More

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.

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.

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.
