We had a group of 5 for a late dinner. The place is located in a quaint neighborhood near the Pantheon. The house wine was great and the menu had some unique items that were delicious. We sampled several of the pasta dishes and several of the meat and fish dishes as well as the desserts. Everything was delicious. It... More

We had a really good lunch here. The restaurant is tiny, but you really feel like a local here. There's also outside seating. There are no tourists here. However, it is in the center of historic town. Steak and lasagna were great! We saw lots of people ordering seafood pasta. The staff was really friendly too.

I visited this restaurant with my colleagues and I have to say that the food was great with adequate pricing but i can't help to note some shortfalls. First of all even though the location was nice it was just too small for the amount of tables they managed to fit into a relatively small area making it feel quite... More

My parents recommend this restaurant to me way back in 2015 (my first time in Rome). The dinner there is great I highly recommend the sea food there. For lunch they have a very good deal that includes first, second, wine and water. No wonder I came back there a year later!

This was our first dinner in Rome and it was delicious. We sat outside and the waiter brought us a complimentary glass of prosecco. We ordered Buffalo Mozzarella with Parma Prosciutto, squid ink pasta with clams, and the most amazing truffle pancetta pasta that was so good that we almost (and should have) ordered another for dessert. If we had... More

Stumbled upon this nice restaurant and made reservations for that same evening. Glad we did. Most of the restaurants in the square by The Pantheon are over priced and the staff sometimes can be dismissive and condescending. The staff here were gracious and friendly. We had a lovely dinner, lamb chops and a nice salad. Sat outside and watched the... More

After a visit to the Vatican Museum and Sistine Chapel and a walk trough the city we had a great lunch her. The atmosphere was relaxed, the service was excellent and the food was just right. I can highly recommend the seafood risotto.

Thank Søren A

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.
