Delicious Dinner

We had a wonderful dining experience. The food was exactly what you would expect the locals to be eating. So very authentic that our waiter only spoke Italian. A must try.

Very good food and very good service. The artichokes are a must, and the rest of the menu is pretty good. Waiters are of great help, would definitely return

Good ambience and good service. Delicious but a little salty food. I would recommend the artichoke appetizer. House wine was very good. I would definitely return to this restaurant.

You enter and you have stairs. Not very usual in Roman restaurants! The ambiance is a bit old fashioned. Also some waiters are! Food is very good: try carciofi alla romana and spaghetti cacio e pepe

Looking for real Italian food? This is the place to visit. Recommended to us by locals, both starters and main dishes were authentic Italian style and tasted perfectly. And even for the desert we would surely go back! Next visit to Rome we will certainly go back!! PS: don't hesitate to start with some of the surprising starters!

What do you expect from a jewish restaurant by the name "The fireman" ? They live on the old glory , but you can do better in the ghetto.

This was the third visit during the last 8 years. Perhaps the worse, though not bad compared to other Roman trattorias. Wonderful setting (old pallazo), polite staff, good starters, borderline greenpepper stake, pricey wine list

This restaurant in the Ghetto is great. The Barbara Sovrana wine was excellent, as was the Baccala Romana (fish in a light tomato sauce) . The service was also very nice. Reasonably priced. The artichokes were amazing.

If you are in the Jewish Ghetto stay away from the main street with the many restaurants (via Portico d'Ottavia) and try AL Pompiere which is off the beaten path and is a try hidden gem. Less crowded, fewer groups and more locals seem to eat here than the other Jewish Ghetto restaurants I have tried. The restaurant is lovely... 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.
