4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Had a nice dinner here last night. We were a group of 9, so had to be split into two tables (it's a pretty tiny place). We sat a little too near the ovens, so on a 90 degree evening, it was less comfortable that it could have been. The food and the service, however, were terrific. I think everyone... More

Friendly staff and fast service. Order 2 pizza: margheritta and fungi & fettuccine pomodoro. Futtuccine was good but nothing special. However, the pizzas were amazing. They told us the place is specialized in pizza and have a small kitchen. If you go there, stick with the pizzas they are amazing

Went here after reading the reviews here on tripadvisor. Was not disappointed it's a tiny restaurant easily missed of you didn't know where it was but the food was delicious and the service excellent. The wine was more than affordable around €12 a bottle and I would highly recommend the Frascti which is from the lazio region. The children enjoyed... More

We'd read about this place in a few articles so decided to try it even though it is in the heart of tourist traps! What a find! Luca - the owner (I guess) is warm and welcoming - even gave us his grandfathers freshest chilli oil. Food was fantastic - we overate and drank! And finally he gave us some... More

Walked past looking for another Trip Advisor recommendation, saw the line so looked it up on trip advisor, so glad we did. Had to wait 15 min to get in but was so with the wait. The service was great the staff made you feel so at home. Wine selection limited to house wine but it was OK as well.... More

I chose this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews and really enjoyed my visit. This is a very small restaurant just around the corner from the Trevi Fountain. Despite the place being busy and arriving as a solo diner I was warmly welcomed and immediately shown to a table. I ordered the Penne Arrabiata which was delicious and a generous... More

We were told to wait 15-20 minutes for a table, after 30 minutes and getting a cold/nonchalant service about when a table will be ready, we decided to leave after wasting 30 minutes of our time.

Thank Alon87

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
