Nice and quite terrace close to the Medicis villa. The view is not fantastic with the building in front, but on the sunny side with breeze in the evening you will surely enjoy it. Service is correct and friendly. Pizza well prepared. Tartuffo and ice cream are very good. Overall noting amazing but quality/price/ and location make it an interesting... More

Loved it! The food was excellent and so was the wine. We stumbled upon this lovely restaurant by chance, after a nice walk in the Villa Borghese Park. Highly recommended, we just might come back tomorrow.

We were looking for a small nice restaurant in the area of the Spanish Steps and found it here at Café Ciampini overlooking the rooftops of Rome. This family owned and operated ristorante was an oasis in the crowded area of the Sp stairs. We split the Caesar salad (15 Euro), and I had the Prawns with Kataify sauce and... More

We went there twice in the span of 2 weeks. The first time, we both ordered duck breasts and cheesecake, and it was to die for, it was really excellent. The second time, we ordered another meal on top of the duckbreasts, and we were both disapointed by those two other meals, that were a bit tasteless, but the duckbreasts... More

Simple food, well done...had the diavola pizza with fries and a huge side salad, easily enough for two and good value. Highlight of course is the view, which is worth the climb

We had a lovely lunch here on the terrace. Wonderfully fresh tuna and lamb with a really good quality Chianti. One of the most relaxing outdoor venues in Rome.

This restaurant is between the Villa Medici and Trinità dei Monti at the top of the Spanish Steps. We had lunch while waiting for our tour of the Villa Medici. We were in the cafe section and had pizza for lunch. The service was very good, the pizzas were good, but the bill was a little high. We had a... More

If finding the "Spanish steps" shrouded in restoration works is leaving you disappointed, having reached the top, turn left and after walking 400 yards, you can have one of the most pleasant lunches in Rome. On an open terrace, pleasantly refreshed by the Roman "venticello" (light wind), sitting by a wall of jasmine, with a glimpse of St Peter's dome,... 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.
