Cheap food but was expecting more as it came highly recommended and it did not reach mid range with its food.

Don't expect anything fancy. Most of the patrons were locals which is a good sign. Food is hearty, piping hot and tasty! A little too much salt for our taste. Very reasonable as well.

We both had pasta ,me with tomatoe and my husband the carbonara. Both excellent. Then I followed with the rabbit ,on the bone but perfectly cooked and my husband... More

I was born and raised in Rome and I am very close to my roots. I travel the world and I had the opportunity of living and working abroad. Every time friends come to visit me in Rome I take them to this authentic and delicious Roman Restaurant located in the heart of the city, very close to Navona square.... More

You will mostly find Romans there and very few tourists. Food is superb. Atmosphere is great. If you're an American, forget about American customs at restaurants. Romans are very direct and don't beat around the bush. Don't expect your version of service.

Followed our guidebooks recommendation and found this just a few yards away from piazza novona. It was far cheaper than the places on the piazza but don't expect a view. It's small and functional but very busy. Food was as good as anywhere else we had on our week long holiday but that meant average - I wasn't impressed by... More

This restaurant offers basic Italian food that tastes good and is offered at an affordable price. Nothing fancy. We had a couple of pasta dishes and the meatballs (which were very good). House wine was not great. Lots of Italians eating here.

The area around Piazza Navona is full of disappointing, overpriced tourist quality but da tonino is a hidden gem. Good food at fair prices. In particular I loved the pasta alla gricia. Yum. I would definitely go back.

Recommended by our host in San Lorenzo, we made our way to this delightful quintessentially Italiano trattoria. First time was amazing, we practiced our pigeon Italian and we're rewarded with the most insanely tasty pasta, by far the best in Roma. And at very low costs comparing tourist traps scatterred around the area. Going back a second time we made... More

There are a number of posts (in the forum or review of location) that mention this trattoria in Rome, but no actual review of it or a listing of it under restaurants in Rome. We just ate there and thought it was fabulous. We would like an opportunity to review it on TA.

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.
