My husband and I visited this restaurant while spending a weekend in Rome it is by far one of the most romantic restaurants we have visited. We were both given a complementary glass of prosecco whilst choosing from the menu, the food was excellent and the waiter did a great job with helping us choose a wine to accompany our... More

We have lived in Rome for nearly 5 years and were looking for a quiet place for an anniversary dinner. We had a great evening at the Library Romantic - great ambiance, excellent service, extensive wine list and excellent food. The two pasta dishes we had were the best we have had in Italy - and we have consumed much... More

The review on this place was encouraging for us to go on a last night romantic dinner. The place was up to our expectation, a nice romantic table was ready for us. The atmosphere was as such as well with dim lights, candle lights on the table and good service. The place is quiet with couples on tables. The staff... More

The place itself is tucked away in one of the small streets next to Corso Vittorio Emanuele II and could be hard to find. Once you find it, opt to sit outside (weather permitting) and you will be treated to the authentic Lady and the Tramp vibe. The food is simple and unpretentious, but very tasty. Great service, the waiters... More

Italy is expensive, in addition not all people are friendly. In this restaurant we found an excellent costumer care, which tailored itself to the pocket of the costumer alongside delivering quality food with a smile. If there is any place in italy where you should dine with the person you love the most, come here.

The food is simple yet tasty. The service is friendly and well executed. We went twice in a period of 4 days, say no 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.
