I asked medium done- it came in a smashed porcini sauce well done in an average quality meet. The presentation of the plate was terrible too. The service was not attentive... More

Wife and I went here for dinner after finding this restaurant through The Fork. Was extremely impressed with the service and food. The gnocchi came in a broccoli cream sauce that was one of the best things I've tasted. Don't skip dessert! We had the tiramasu and will be dreaming about it for days to come.

I'm writing this from home so I don't have all the details but we all loved our dinner at Al Duello. The food was delicious, the service was friendly and efficient but not overly so.

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.
