Had some great meals here in the past but it seems to have suffered a bit. Starters were so oily that they were unpleasant. Vegetarian options had fish in them. Main was uninspiring and bland. Only good cause was the aubergine parmigiana which was delicious, however if you add enough roasting bubbling actress to anything then it usually comes up... More

This is a lovely restaurant on a side street near the Spanish Steps. Nice mixture of both locals and tourists. Ample portions, fresh tomatoes, arugula, carbonara sauce was delicious down to the last twirl of pasta and sweep of bread to make sure nothing was left. 😜 Fantastic dining experience from start to finish. Service was immaculate and the people... More

The food was good and so was the service. The atmosphere was not special - too many tourists. The crowed was loud. I had a fish. It was good and fresh. A nice place for a regular dinner.

Wonderful atmosphere, very casual, simple, easy. Great location tucked in a back alley. Owners greeted us, very warm and hospitable. We asked them to put together a meal family style for our group which made it very easy and we got to try lots of variety of dishes served with great wines. Service was good. Food was very Roman and... More

Our first evening in Rome and I read about this place on TripAdvisor prior to traveling. The food was beyond delicious, the staff very courteous and the pricing average for this level of freshness. Definitely a place to visit.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
