This was our second trip to Rome and we planned ahead to make sure we ate at this cute family owned restaurant. The food is fantastic and the service is exceptional. On our last trip to Rome we ate her twice and regret that we only had time for one meal here on this trip. The pizza is great and... More

We went here based on a reco from our friends friend. Ugh. The lighting was so bright thanks to (4) fluorescent bulbs in each fixture. There was no ambiance, just glare. The food was okay, absolutely nothing special. The roasted chicken had been prepared well in advance. The pasta dishes were just okay. When we were seated, the waiter brought... More

Try everything you have time for. We can't stay away from this little family restaurant. The most reasonable prices for such extraordinary dishes. Go for the daily specials or anything on their menu. A happy, warm family greats you & takes great care to make sure you have a fine experience. Simple elegance. Going back tonight for the third time... More

Wow!! Just finished one of the very best meals of our lives, as a family. The ambience was incredibly warm and homey, nestled in a table in a rather small place. The food was delicious and authentic. Made for a really special dinner. Standouts included the spaghetti con vongole (clams), fettuccini with porcini mushrooms, gnocchi with a meat sauce, osso... More

Business bringing me back to the Eternal City meant one important thing - supper each day at Hostaria Farnese, situated between Piazza Farnese and Campo Dei Fiori. Evening one was pappardelle funghi done to perfection. Excellent regional wines and pudding to die for. Evening two, veal. Quite simply the best I've yet enjoyed. Superb, yet unfussy service is delivered by... More

We ate here last year three times and it is still just as good. Spaghetti with mussels was outstanding as is the caprese salad. Leave room for the monte Bianca dessert, chestnut Creme and meringue......

Very nice staff, but the food and choices struck me as a bit pedestrian and limited. This would not be a place to take people for a great Italian food experience.

Hostaria Farnese served what has to be the best meal we have had during our trip to Italy. it was recommended by the gentleman we rented our apartment from. while we had some trouble finding it down a side road of the Campo Di Fiori it is well worth searching out. The staff were friendly and spoke English which was... More

We ate here 2x on our visit in 2011. This time it was the first restaurant we returned to in Rome. Lucka, is running the restaurant that is in his family. The recommendations for food, wine and aperitif were all great. We will always try and eat here. It is just a little place but we think it is great.

Looking for a real authentic, trattoria-style restaurant experience in Rome - I went to Hostaria Farnese with high expectations. They managed to deliver on all of them! It's a great place on a small street between Campo de Fiori and the French embassy. Friendly and attentive staff, great food and cosy atmosphere. I'd recommend it to anyone going to Rome...

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.
