4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were planning to go to dinner at another restaurant that turned out to be closed for vacation. We happened upon this place. We did not have reservations, but were welcomed despite being less than a hour until the posted closing time. The restaurant was like stepping back in time to what I imagined a 1950's local restaurant would have... More

This restaurant is situated in a calm street. Recommend to book previously. Service was very good, charged 3EUR. Spaghetti al pesto (venere) was really good. Very good choice. Price is fair.

Wonderful dinner from preparation to presentation that was perfectly served by our waiter. Thank you all, but especially Alfio who just made our dinner even more special. We will be back for sure.

I was appalled by the way I was treated by a waiter at this small restaurant. I arrived at 8:20PM for my 8:30 reservation, along with my wife & our 5 children. The guy says to me: "can't you read?" I said to him, what do you mean? He says "I sent you an email that your table wouldn't be... More

If you're not being a cheap bum while in Rome, then you need to stop in here. Great team of people serving up some great dishes. Servers all had fantastic energy. We enjoyed our starters as we watched other dishes come out of the kitchen that all looked top notch. Wish we could have tried more food. Recommend the sautéed... More

This place had amazing food and wonderful service! Our waiter Giorgio helped us pick out great bottles of wine within our budget, and really guided us through our meal like a pro! We even got a round of liquor from his homeland on the house to finish the meal. Would go back again and recommend highly! We enjoyed the mussels... More

First, let me say that I always try to be as fair as possible in these reviews. The food was actually quite good (we mostly had pasta dishes). For that, I am thankful. However, the overall experience, for the price, I found to be not worthwhile. The dining room resembled that of a cafeteria, more than a restaurant. No table... More

The produce was fresh and the flavours were well balanced. The presentation was beautiful. We ordered Crystalline Lobster with rice and it was devine, the natural juices from the seafood complimented the black rice. The staff were attentive and friendly. Really enjoyed our meal and definitely think it should be ranked much higher.

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
