Nice restaurant in a quiet street

Good food and fast service, maybe a little pricy. The red wine was way too hot when served. Nice and welcoming staff.

Good location but very unprofessional staff. Not worth drinking/eating here. Much better places around.

Walking around hungry as anything. This place hadnt started food service yet but as we were starving they have some olives and chips to keep us going. We had the mixed appetizer plate and it was amazing. Eggplant with parmesan as a hot dosh was fantastic and so was the mozzarella and cheese. Beautiful little cafe/restaurant for an afternoon with...

A lovely place just off the High Street. We loved the look from the quaint street and were greeted warmly as we walked in. We said we only wanted a snack and a drink and 2 hours later when we left, we felt like we were friends. Food and drink very reasonable, location very good. Staff very friendly, a big... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch yesterday having made a reservation on-line which gave a 20% discount. The service was relatively slow but this was made up for by the setting, menu choice, quality of food and overall price. We both started with salads which were fresh, colourful and tasty and followed with pasta dishes. The pasta was wonderful -... More

My wife and I agreed that this was the best food during our one week stay in Rome. The pasta was homemade and the sauces were terrific. The wine list was also good and quite affordable. The service was slow, even by Italian standards, but my wife and I didn't mind as we slowly enjoyed our bottle of wine.

My husband and I had lunch in this restaurant yesterday. Italian food is my favourite, the Trofie pesto nosy e pachino ( pesto and walnut sauce) was fantastic, so too was the Rigatoni pepperoni pancetta e capperi( pasta with papers capers cherry tomatoes and basil). The draught beer and wine were good too, a welcome break after walking miles around... More

Me and my bf went here maybe a week ago when we were very hungry and wanted to find some place to eat near piazza del popolo. We didn't want to spend a fortune but we wanted genuine Roman food. We found that Il Melarancio was almost empty whereas the place beside was crowded. We took a chance and sat... More

Very good Roman inspired food, this was our second visit, the first being during the New Years holiday. Some may think the prices are high but given the location, it was what I had anticipated. The staff were friendly and efficient and catered to all of our needs and requests. Will visit again on future breaks to this great city.

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.
