Where to start. Food bland. Over priced and same ingredients used throughout the meal. Waiters were initially good, however then service dropped. We were sitting with empty wine glasses for about 30 mins and no one came to offer a top up. Will not be visiting again.

Discovering that one of Rome’s most famously elegant hotels had opened a vegetarian & vegan restaurant seemed a courageous and original move, and I hoped for great things. I have to say, it was an expensive mistake. My dishes were two of the least interesting things I have ever eaten in my 35 years as a vegetarian: a stack of... More

This restaurant offers a possibility for a great experience. The views are outstanding! Food is presented wonderfully, wines are delicious. Certainly it is an expensive place but a very special one as well. Ingredients are organic and seasonal.

The staff is very friendly and the view is one of the best in town. But please note that you need a reservation, EVEN IF COMING ONLY FOR A DRINK. After being turned away the first night because we didn't have a reservation FOR A DRINK, we returned the next night with a reservation because my wife had stayed there... More

I'm being cheeky, because the view was the attraction, but the food was better. This restaurant is located on the roof of the Hotel Raphael. It is a VERY popular spot during cocktail hour for the view. Near the Piazza Navona, it fills up a little before sundown - earlier during the summer. Every comes for a drink - a... More

I am not a vegetarian but this restaurant did not fail to please. Its simple surroundings of the restaurant should not put you off, it is simply devine. The staff are outstanding and the flavors of the food are out of this world. The roof top terrace has amazing romantic views over the rooftop of Rome.

A "Relais et Chateaux" restaurant with a great terrace view and excellent polite service comes with a high standard of culinary expectations! Unfortunately the "organic", "natural", "ethical", meat - fish - egg - gluten etc free menu was incredibly disappointing! At €22 and up per item, we were served a small portion of items such as spaghetti with tomato sauce!!!... More

We are staying at Hotel Raphael and decided to pop upstairs to the roof top bar. Ridiculous prices for the bar - go enjoy (not) - horrible bar snacks provided probably as an apology for the prices... And the hotel is a 4 star not a 5 star. Fantastic location. Fantastic frontage. Gorgeous bathroom. Friendly staff. But not five star.

The roof terrance is incredibly beautiful, specially at sunset. There are only a few tables so reservation is needed. When I read it was a vegetarian restaurant, I thought that perhaps it was not something I would like but I decided to have a try. Greeeeeaaat! From the "gazpacho" with vegetables and avocado pesto and apple to the tiramisu I... More

This elegant rooftop restaurant offers amazing views of the neighborhood adjacent to Piazza Navona. We went here twice on our last visit to Rome for pre-dinner drinks and assorted nibbles. The view is stunning and the service is superb. Can't imagine another visit to Rome without enjoying a drink on the roof!

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.
