“Santa Lucia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Go to Piazza Navona as you will enjoy the fountains and the people if you are in the mood have some lunch in one of the many restaurants in the Piazza. Its ok to be a tourist just go with the flow and enjoy. If the crowds are getting to you though and you want to retire to some semblance of peace! Duck up one of the streets on the far side of the Piazza, and stroll up Largo Febo to a small island in a “Y” junction and there you will find Santa Lucia. Open air, Peaceful and shaded by Hugh trees. This is special food from the Amalfi area. I had the saddest Risotto I have ever had, sad because once I had tasted it, all I could think of was that this plate would soon be finished. I couldn’t return the next day as we were going home and it would be a year until I would be back. Now that is sad...No?
And don’t share a desert as it will become a fight!!

“Wow! Loved this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012

My husband and I came across this restaurant while walking the back streets of the Piazza Navonna Area. It was away from the tourist traps and opposite the Hotel Raphael. For lunch we started with tomato and the best ever buffalo mozzeralla drizzled with an amazing olive oil. Simple but fantastic. Next we had pasta, again magnificent with 2 glasses of Chianti Classico. The best for last was without doubt the most amazing Tirimasu. Service was also outstanding and nothing was too much trouble even when we asked about a few of the choices on offer. I wish I was back in Rome right now eating that food. You cant go wrong here especially if out for lunch. Price was very reasonable too. I cant believe this doesnt get a higher rating on TA. Maybe the secrets out now.

“What a delightful place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Right in the middle of the city, there is this lovely patio overlooking a small street. Food was delicious, the waiter was very helpful and efficient, and the list goes on. A great place for a really nice lunch.
