I am a reasonable man with a reasonable appetite. I just "ate" at Alfredo e Ada, and I am still hungry! I am also confused! They're is a full multi-course menu outside, full of wonders! After being seated, the waitress quickly read us off a menu that was not at all what was posted outside. I ordered something on a... More

You must slow down while walking past to notice this local gem, open since 1926. No reservations, wait outside until a table, or part of a table, is free. Families, singles and groups of friends, local and visiting, drink carafe wine and eat local pasta dishes, all served by a single, charming and multilingual waitress. The place seats about 20...

This place is not easy to find as there isn't much in the way of signs. However, if you ask around the area, people will point you in the right direction. It is definitely worth the search because when you do find this place, you won't be disappointed! The atmosphere is unbeatable, the food is incredible (and very affordable). The... More

Amazing restaurant which serves tasty dishes. Price performance wise, it's about as good as it gets in the centre of Rome. A dinner with both a primi and secundi is highly recommended.

We decided to go to Alfredo e Ada based on a friend's recommendation. It did not disappoint! I'm glad we read the reviews ahead of time. The restaurant opens at 7 pm and we got there about 6:55. There were already 10 people in line. The restaurant seats maybe 20 people total and one waitress takes care of all the... More

Great, authentic home cooked food, lovely atmosphere, super waitress (who manages the dining room single handedly), exceedingly good value for money, menu changes each day, lovely cold beer. We ate here twice and were made to feel very welcome. Recognised the second time and handed a cold beer each by the smashing waitress, to enjoy while we waited for a... More

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.
