After sightseeing through Rome and encountering a few overrated or unfriendly eating places, it was great finding the Hostaria Farnese. It was well located, just between the Piazza Farnese and Campo de Fiori, The food is honest and very good. The pasta carbonara was especially delicious. The waiters were friendly and knowledgeable. The prices were also quite good considering the... More

Service was straightforward and solid. Waiters were attentive and when asked questions were very engaging and psychoses great information. The formaggio misto offer a great selection of both young and aged cheese with great flavor. Wines aren't to extensive but the food was quite delicious.

Our last meal in Rome was phenomenal! Hands down the best Caprese salad and bruschetta bianco we've had in Rome. A nice house red. Yummy gnocchi with a perfect bolognese sauce in just the right portion size. Topped off with house made tiramisu and chocolate cake. Whew! I'm stuffed! Good thing we skipped lunch today.

Was in the area and looked on TripAdvisor to see what was around. Although this restaurant was not rated that high, it was the best of the bunch. We approached with not much confidence of getting a good meal but was pleasantly surprised by the end. This place does not serve anything fancy and we ordered pasta and pizza. The... More

Family with two kids, 7 and 10, enjoyed a great lunch at the Hostaria Farnese. Service was fast and attentive with a smile, and both the antipasti and the pasta were excellent. The children shared a plate of scallopine, which was served al limone (since the are fussy with mushrooms) even though this was not on the menu. The staff... More

This was the best Caprese Salad in twenty meals that we had in Rome. We ate two meals here and all four of us had a great experience. The waiters are extremely attentive and friendly. There were mostly locals eating here.

My husband and I were turned away by the waiter from eating here after waiting 10mins. at their entryway. The waiters saw us but continued to ignore us. After waiting for someone to seat us, the waiter finally came over and said that they were not taking any more guests even though they did not close for another 50mins and... More

Ate here the last of 4 nights in Rome, based on TA reviews and it being steps from our apartment. Intimate, felt worlds away from Campo de Fiori throbbing around the corner. Had two antipasti, both excellent, and two fettucine pastas with garlic that were as good as anything we had in 14 days in Italy. Mix of locals and... More

I enjoyed lunch at this restaurant in Piazza Farnese on May 14,2016. It was pouring rain outside, but inside we had a delicious, relaxing lunch of the cannelloni and fettuccine. Our waiter was the son of the owners who have owned this restaurant for many years. I would definitely go again.

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.
