We happened upon the restaurant on an evening on which we weren't overly hungry, but had an enjoyable meal, sampling arancini and suppli, a thin-crusted pizza, and a millefoglia with strawberries, and a chocolate-laced ricotta cheese cake, all served attentively by our waiter Islam.

Yes, this place when they have opened it was keeping a very upscale flavour ,with great sommelier upstairs , and super food downstairs. Now I feel it like a tourist trap unfortunately with service not knowledgeable , not consistent. food is still acceptable but yes, if It was the place to go with your partner for a mid-range upscale dinner,...

Just off Piazza del Popolo this offers a nice little bar upstairs with some outside seating and a large restaurant downstairs. Good food and service and excellent value.

We heard about this restaurant through our hotel (Valadiers) when we were in Rome at the beginning of this month. Completely worth it! The pizza's were delicious with a very thin crust and freshly cut ingredients, traditionally made in the brick oven we could see standing in the kitchen. The ambience of this place is also very warm and friendly.... More

The restaurant was very cozy and beautiful. It s something you should not skip when in Rome. Try the nice cheese and salami plate for start! Everything was perfect and you can choose between many different wine etiquets. Islam was our waiter and he was very helpful and answer all our questions about different wines and cheese. Trust him !

My husband and I accidentally stumbled upon this restaurant while walking around Piazza de Poppolo and stopped in with every intention to just grab a glass a wine at the upstairs bar. We ordered our wine and the waitress brought us a complimentary appetizer of olives, arancini balls, mixed salads and other snacks. Everything was really tasty so we decided... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
