It’s hard to imagine that anyone ever “stumbles” on Al Duello. One approach is off what appears to be a dead end alley that seems to have been the inspiration for saying “I wouldn’t want to be caught in a dark alley with (fill in...More

Stumbled across this little gem when trying to escape the tourist trap, we would never have spotted it if it wasn’t for a sign post. The atmosphere and design of the restaurant is very nice. The service was the best we had received in Rome....More

You will walk in the area of Navona or just walk around Rome anyway, go. You will not regret. Excellent food and fine wine selection. The staff is excellent.

We came across this place by "accident", moved by the home-style smell of food which atrracted us from the main street. The food is great in value as well as the hosting of the stuff.

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
