As college students studying abroad my friends and I needed a break from cheap pasta and pizza and we found this to be the perfect place with a wide variety of options on the menu

Terrible. Just bad American food. I tried it as an experiment - what a mistake, Big, noisy like a mid-west hamburger joint serving food that leaves an unpleasant aftertaste. Why would you come to Rome and eat this food? Unless your kids are screaming demanding a TV hi cal dinner then eat Italian. But then why come to Italy? They... More

We chose this American burger place for a break from pizza and pasta and it was ok. The cheese burger was really tasty and my partner had the spicy chicken burger which was good too. The fries were a bit boring and nothing special at all however we ate them. Service was a bit patchy but we didn't mind that... More

I went here because I was getting sick of pasta and pizza after being in Rome for a week. I was honestly not expecting it to be good but the food turned out to be excellent. I really liked their decor it felt like I was in an American establishment. The burger was mouth watering. The French fries were fresh.... More

Stumbled upon this place after trying to find somewhere to eat after visiting the Pantheon. The Perfect Bun has a menu that includes burgers, chicken and chips. It was actually a relieve to see no pasta or pizza on the menu. The prices are typical for Rome - I got fish and chips for 11euro and my partner got chicken... More

Nice atmosphere. Expensive for a burger joint. Busy place, waiters not at all attentive to customers

We were craving burgers in Rome so we felt very lucky to have found this hidden gem. The burgers and chips were really good, as was the guacamole and the chili burrito. And they had several wine options by the glass, which was very nice. Service was exceptional even though they were busy and we were sitting outside. It was... 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.
