We were seated quickly as we arrived early for dinner in Rome. The owners wife informed us that there would possibly be no credit card machine working. Her husband the chef came out and insisted we stay. He said not to worry about the credit cards and to enjoy our meal. His wife turned out to be from NY as... More

The food was OK . Prices too high for the standard of food . The place has had some good reviews but my feeling is that they are not keen on holiday visitors really . Probably a decent venue for a local but there are decidedly better places for a tourist's Euros.

Pleasant with friendly service. Waiter was courtesy enough to just ask us to order prima. This was more than enough as we did not have room for main meat dishes. Wine choice was limited to house/Chianti. Suited us as Chianti was delicious! Lots of Italians dining which we liked. Would we go again???

This trattoria is located in a very quiet, but central place. It is a nice terrace. The food is fresh and delicious. It is typical Roman. The price is very affordable. The clients seemed to be Italians mostly.

We found & tried this place completely by accident when "getting lost" around Rome - which is usually the best way to find some interesting place in Italy :) This one is small family-run with great food! You should not miss it. We spent 2 times together overall 2 weeks in Rome, trying multiple restaurants and this was the best... More

One of our best (not to mention cheapest) meals in Rome. Family run place with real local "feel" and excellent food. Everything was excellent, very friendly.

Since when was cold mashed potato antipasti? Do you know what a meatball is? Do you even taste your food? Possibly the worst meal I've ever had. After the horrible 'antipasti' a main arrived which was served practically cold. And what I was given did not resemble a meatball. Oh an more mashed potato. I've never left a restaurant because...

Very nice place, very good food. The amatriciana was amazing and so the Cacio e Pepe. We all loved our meal. Just a little disappointment because they didn't have on the menu the artichokes alla romana. If you go late you will not have a full choice on the menu, a little disappointing but for sure it's because everything is... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant through my guide book to Rome and also by wandering not knowing exactly where to eat. When i read it was owned by an ex footballer it sealed the deal for me.... although to this day i still don't know who it was. On arrival (we hadn't booked) the waiter was incredibly accommodating. we ordered... More

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.
