Ordered spaghetti with clam, risotto with mushrooms, rigatoni with oxtail sauce, fried mixed fish and grilled sole. All were excellent! We will try to dine there again before we leave Rome. Ps not all waiters speak English but we managed.

Nice friendly people loving their food and traditions reflecting this emotions on best prepared and served Italian dishes in Rome. We enjoyed every single course made from freshest ingredients and prepared according the recipes accurately preserved by four generations in this place.

Recommended by a long time resident of Rome this was my first visit. Three interconnecting dining rooms in the long established Rome staple. White table cloths and napkins, knowledgeable and professional staff. Fresh fish and fruits are on display and the menu is mainly made up of daily specials. The Fettuccine al tartufo nero. Black truffles. Superb and perfectly cooked... More

We came to this restaurant because of a friend's recommendation. Food was very good, specially the scallope with mushrooms and ham. But the best of all was the service offered by Pino!! He is the best!!! Always with a smile and suggesting the best options. For example the dolci: warm apple pie with ice cream. Yummy!!!! The place is quiet... More

For our last dinner in Rome we ate at La Campana and we were so disappointed. The restaurant is pretty and the self serve anti pasta bar was good but the salad, pasta and main courses were subpar. My husband ordered grilled lamb and a blob of deep fried lamb cutlet appeared. I ordered the anchovies that were inedible. The... More

Wanted to go just so we could say we went to the oldest restaurant in Rome. Make sure you make a reservation. Don't judge but I got the baby goat and it was very tender.

The restaurant was recommended by our hotel and just around the corner. It is a family owned and the food & service were both excellent. When I am back in Rome would visit again without question.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
