Outstanding in a small but modern setting. It's steps away from Fontana di Trevi in a hidden street. Service was impeccable and quick (rare in Rome). The food was outstanding and the ricotta dessert delicious. Highly recommend!

We were meeting a friend at the Trevi Fountain, so I searched on Trip Advisor for a restaurant nearby and decided this was the place based on location and reviews. Even with Google Maps in hand, it took a few minutes to find as it is down a seemingly dank alley/street. Upon entering, there's a faint sewage smell that my... More

Food was really great, we were group of 4 and tried many starters and pasta dishes, all dishes were amazing. The tartufu pasta was exceptional, the one with muscles also.

We got the mixed meet and cheese appetizer and the meats were dry. In particular, the prosciutto was sliced very thick and appeared to have been sliced hours ago. The pasta dishes were overcooked and bland. Nothing "bad" but nothing really good either. Wouldn't go back.

The waiter was great, and best pizza, lasagna, and veal I have ever tasted. Went to restaurant with three kids and the waiter could not have been nicer, going out of his way to tell me lunch specials and throwing in drink with dish for $10. Has been our best meal in Italy at the tail end of our one... More

I turned up without a reservation and queued up for 20mins. Guess what wait was well worth it. I had the best pizza in my life. Pasta dish with prawns was not the best. Amazing service and atmosphere. Restaurant was dedicated to goddess Venus . They also serve decent wine :)

Little modern decor than most of the Rome restaurant. Delicious food. Friendly staff and great service. Just a block from Trevi fountain. Reservation is recommended.

After seeing the Trevi fountain with my family, we stopped for a great dinner at La Fontana di Venere. We had great Proscuitto and Melon, great Pasta with Mushrooms. When we return, we will definitely return.

Not always good idea to trust trip adviser reviews. Was looking forward to going to this restaurant but our food was borderline inedible. I ordered the prawn pasta and I got one single prawn with my dish. The creamy pasta very dry and had a strange lemon taste. Hubby got the veal and that too was ordinary. Would not recommend... More

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.
