When you ask for a starter menu item you expect the starter to come at the start of the meal and not with the main course. However this restaurant disagrees. After quickly gobbling up my slices of pork (which I have to say were quite charming as they did not come burdened with salt) I went straight into my already... More

We spent 3 days in a little hotel next to it. Ate there the first day and had to go back because it was very nice (especially compare to the other restaurants we have tried during our walks) We ate pizzas, beef, salads and pastas there and everything was very very tasty, good quality and enough portion. Definitely recommended.

We stopped here after we walked all day visiting Rome and we were hungry. After appetizers, we ordered a pizza and pasta carbonara. Pizza was good, thin crust and crunchy, carbonara was different that what we are used to in US meaning no white sauce. They have good beer, and a nice tiramisu. It's a little pricy, but I guess...

Feta salad was nothing special, but the pizza was very good. Both, kids and adults, liked them :) Service was very friendly most of the time. Would recommend!

I was part of a group of 40 people which consisted of adults and 17 and 18 year olds. We were booked for dinner here for the 3 nights that we stayed in Rome.We were seated downstairs due to size of our group. The food every night was delicious. Each dinner started with an appetizer, then an entree and dessert.... More

The waiter was very good, it was a bit empty in the restraunt for a Saturday so lacked a bit of ambience, the street level was full. We had 3 courses and all were very good. A little bit pricey but it is a good restraunt in a major city so it was expected.

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.
