We had dinner at Osteria Del Pegno. Very small place. Central location. Excellent food at good prices. Try the black rice and other delicacies. Excellent service. Good house wine. I recommend it.

In every sense. Delicious food, very nice staff and very reasonable prices. Exceptional toilets as for Italy-really. If they had outdoor sitting it would be perfect!!!

Our first evening was so nice that we went a second time, during our stay in Rome. Friendly welcome, fantastic winelist, at reasonable prices. Authentic food and familial atmosphere. Highly recommended. Take a reservation before you go!

They charged my Mastercard in Canadian dollars at a bad exchange rate, and added a 3 Euro fee as a markup on the exchange rate. I only noticed it later in faint print on my receipt: "I accept that I have been offered a choice of currencies payment" – not true, there was no choice offered – "and that this... More

Originally found this on tripadvisor as it was just around the corner from where we were staying. Dropped in for lunch and was not at all disappointed. The atmosphere is wonderful, beautiful painted walls, music and a location just away from all the tourist locations. Had read about he Carbonara ( and I try it everywhere we go in Italy)... More

Found this place by accident when walking between the river and Piazza Navona. We hadn't booked so were lucky to get in. The food was lovely, with some complimentary dishes. The service was good too.

When walking down Via Coronari towards Castel Sant' Angelo, turn left in a narrow street Vicolo di Montevecchio. You'll find Osteria del Pegno, great little restaurant where you can taste good italian food in a picturesque setting. Neighborhood is full of tourist trap restaurants so this is a true find. Try seafood spaghetti with a house white wine - excellent!... More

We stumbled on this restaurant by accident and we were very glad that we did. The food was reasonably priced and beautiful. The service was excellent and the atmosphere wonderful. Located on a quiet lane, just off a busier tourist strip, the restaurant had a combination of both locals and tourists dining at it while we where there. A charming... More

We were looking for a place for dinner a little off the main hubbub of Piazza Navonna. Based on other Trip Advisor reviews, we decided on Osteria del Pegno. It took some doing to find, as the usually accurate Google maps didn't locate this place correctly, but after several false starts, and finally asking directions, we did find it. Without... More

Okay...we ate here almost everyday.. no we didn't do lunch and dinner here on the same day but we discussed it!...Been to Rome many times...lots of great places...but this one takes the cake. Incredible food in a low key intimate setting with fabulous mgmt and staff....we have been home for a week and are already jonesing for this place.
