We dined here last fall after recommendation by friends. Meal and evening was so memorable, just tracked it down to recommend to other friends traveling soon. No doubt, much of their business is word of mouth, repeat travelers or friend to friends. It's that good! :)

This restaurant was an excellent find in a big city. The food was authentic, tasty and freshly prepared. The staff were very helpful especially with knowledge on suitable gluten free foods. A small intimate restaurant with a very friendly welcome.

My friend wendy and I went for dinner one night last year and after leaving piazza navona and walking through some back streets we found our gem .... PEGNO can mean ... A pawn/pledge/security ..... Maybe it could mean to pledge one friendship ... Whatever the owner had in mind .. It's a hidden gem with a lovely atmosphere and... More

We were wandering around Monte Vecchio, looking for a restaurant that had been recommended and is now gone. We walked past Osteria del Pegno, and it looked charming, quaint, high quality, and expensive. Luckily, the first three were right but it wasn't expensive at all. To the contrary, this is a rare gem of restaurant that seems to undercharge for... More

We absolutely loved the place. Nice family-style vibe, delicious food and super friendly staff. Be sure to try the octopus-salad with citrus. Very fresh ingredients, handled with lots of love.

We came here because of the TA reviews and for the first time I have to disagree with them. First of, without a reservation it's almost impossible to get in. The food was ok but nothing to write about. We ate lasagna, salad and steak to compare to the other restaurants in the neighborhood, and I think every dish was... More

I have been to this beautiful Osteria near Piazza Navona many times while in Rome and it has become my GO TO place for a great meal at a fair price. The food is exceptionally good. The owner/manager is attentive and helpful...but the food...the food is excellent. I have recommended this place to many others, all of whom have been... More

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
