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...

I love this place with a passion. Lucca and his team offer exemplary service delivering quality food at sensible prices. The range of Italian standards and Lazio/Roman dishes is just right; the atmosphere homely and unpretentious. Italians eat here too - always the acid test! Great for lunch or dinner.

certainly not the worst meal i have ever had (or had this trip) All just a bit "average" wine was good though and overall reasonable value.

We decided to perch outside on a hot, late afternoon near the Campo. Very pleased with the service (courteous and professional) and the food (especially the spaghetti alle vongole and the scallopine con funghi) and the people watching. With antipasto, prosecco and a good bottle of Greco di Tufo it came to 60E plus tip.

We had a quick lunch at the Hostaria Farnese early in our visit to Rome which inspired us to go back for dinner on several other evenings. This restaurant is one of our best finds in Rome. Situated just off the Campo di Fiori so you are aware of the enjoyment down the road but not intruded upon with a... More

Our first lunch in Rome we ordered the antipasti app & a pizza. Both were excellent. Not right on square, which is what you want. Good prices & the wine & beer were cheap & excellent

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.
