Il Pompiere is a typical Roman-Jewish restaurant, just accross Via Arenula and you are in the Roman Ghetto; This restaurant is very nice with paintings and the traditional cooking is excellent; (Cartioffi fritti) etc.

The restaurant deserves 5 stars for several reasons : first, the atmosphere, located on the first floor of a Palazzo in the old Getto neighborhood, with high ceilings, pale white walls, lots of delicious artwork decorating the walls. Second, for its stylish, classic, service. Third, for the food : traditional Roman cuisine, an ideal place to discover new flavor rich... More

A delightful warm welcome, old fashioned courtly service and well cooked quality food. We loved it and, since it was filling up with locals as we left, so do a lot of others.

As a person who was born and grew up in Rome, this is one of my favorite places for family gatherings and dinners. The staff is incredibly nice and helpful, and the quality of the food is excellent, all the time. The decor itself is very nice and elegant, simple and relaxing. This is not a place for everybody -... More

Al Pompiere is an old favorite and we've been here many times over the years. Make sure to get both the fried artichoke, the fried zucchini flower stuffed with anchovy and mozzarella and the puntarella salad if it's in season.

This is a place I've been to a number of times over the years and it never disappointed me until now. It's gotten old and musty. Even the bread served without a touch olive oil was kinda stale. Three of us had different items and only the pasta in a lemon cream sauce was up to the old standards. White... 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.
