As usual we were wandering about looking for good restaurants. Went past this restaurant several times. This time we thought we will give it a go. It was a good decision. We enjoyed our food and the service was fantastic. We had a chicken dish with peppers, Saltimbocca, pasta with black peppers and gricia and pudding was tiramusu. Food tasted... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and it was only about 4 blocks from our hotel. We walked in and there was a refrigerator case with meats. The inside was lovely and they had delicious looking desserts sitting around to entice you. We ordered Spaghetti and Chicken Pasta, Appetizer, and bottled water. Pasta not rubbery like in America and the owner... More

We wanted a place we did not need to worry about dressing up for to go to dinner. It was too hot for dress up and we were hungry and wanted to sit down to good food right away. Recommended by our Hotel Oceania and with a map for walking directions we arrived perhaps 10 to 15 minutes directly to... More

This was a Rick Steves recommendation that was near our hotel. The Caprese salad was one of the best we had on our whole trip in Italy. I had the fettuccine with mushrooms and it was amazing! It was one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had. My husband and son also enjoyed their food, which was the... More

Stumbled upon here quite by accident we have eaten a lot on the streets but this was very welcome especially in the heatwave. As we entered we were welcomed by the older waiter who spoke very little english but did everything to make sure we were seated comfortably and had a vino very quickly. If you are looking for the...

The restaurant was right across our hotel, so as we landed we went straight there. It looks like it's been around for a long time and gives a very family-like feeling. The waiter was very nice and patient. I recommend their cake ;)

We have eaten lunch here for 4 times now, every time we are in Rome, the first time 6 years ago, and the food and service is still very good! It seems to be a family restaurant, with friendly men serving and a nice old woman running the kitchen. Every time we are in Rome we try to have lunch... More

When I arrived at the corner of the intersection, I can see the sign of the restaurant but I cannot find the entrance. It turned out the entrance is on the side and going down into the basement. The upper of the two lower levels was manned by a waiter that was professionally dressed but I was greeted and directed... More

Ate dinner at Ristorante Da Giovanni after hotel recommendation. It is a smaller place with friendly and efficient staff. The pasta dishes were fresh and not overdone and the fish and meat dishes are tasty and fresh. Fair prices for good food in a restaurant in Rome.

One of the favorite restaurants we visited in Rome. We went here because this was recommended in the Santa Susanna (American Church in Rome) bulletin we picked up while attending Saturday afternoon mass so we decided to give it a try. The cost for four of us with a very good bottle of wine and four entrees with salad was... More

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighborhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighborhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighborhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 8pm.
