Very friendly and authentic

This place offers a Sunday service which is good because a lot of places in this area were shut. There was very friendly service and excellent recommendations of the pasta of the day. We had a dish with pasta and pork in a tasty sauce. The prices are reasonable and no hidden charges.

This eatery was very local to us as we were staying in via di Ripetta, just around the corner. We had been warned that eating and drinking in Rome is expensive - and that is definitely true of the restaurants around any of the major piazzas or tourist attractions. What a great find this was. We ate here two evenings... More

Our first visit to this restaurant earlier this week went of without an issue. The food was great for both visits but tonight our service was not on par with what we have experienced earlier. Great food with good prices do choose wisely.

Based partly on the trip advisor reviews and partly on the location close to our hotel, we went here for the New Year Eve dinner €85 per head. To be honest the quality was so lame that I would have been disappointed had it been €30 per head. By far the worst food we have had so far after five... More

This is a great little restaurant with fair prices. And if you are gluten free (hard to do in Rome) they have a separate menu. I had the best gluten free bread that I've ever eaten there! We enjoyed our meal so much we came back a second time. Service was exceptional both times. Good location on a quiet side... More

We popped in here for lunch as an October rain shower made an appearance. Pasta and pizza were both nice. Reasonable price of 25 euros for those plus drinks. What let it down was the service. One waitress/manager sat chain smoking at the table behind my husband. Bill took about 15 mins to come. For a quick lunch it was... 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.
