Average pasta dishes. A nice waiter (Nazzareno) and reasonable prices. But nothing to be highlighted.

I visited the restaurant in 2011 and liked it a lot. Ended up eating there two evenings in a row. This time it did not live up to my expectations. The ministrone was again great but the pasta amatriciana was rather standard. The service was unfriendly. I was the only guest which felt strange for a Friday at 8 pm.... More

We picked this restaurant for lunch because it was convenient and had wifi. The staff was very well trained. The site was quiet, but it was outside only seating. There were heaters so we were warm enough, but if coming at night, bring a sweater or light jacket. We ordered pasta dishes, and they were excellent. My spinach ravioli was... More

The soup was tasty. Waiters with tacts and well trained. Menu presentation was the strong point. Pasta carbonara had nothing special. I can say that in Romania in many places we ate delicious. The beer who I tried it was not our taste.

My husband ordered... More

I had the most memorable waiter, and because of him I will be coming back to this restaurant the next time in Rome - even if I love to go to new places when I go out to eat, and obviously Rome has thousands of places. I ordered a simple pizza bianca with salsiccia and funghi. It was really good... More

We had been at the Piazza di Spagna and this restaurant is near-by. We sat outside on the pleasant patio with just a few other tables taken as it was around 3 PM. I ordered the osso buco. It was tasty but not tender. My husband ordered the Margherita pizza which was delicious. They do not have tap water (?)... More

Quality Italian food with good service.l had the spinach & ricotta ravioli & my husband had the seafood pasta followed by chocolate pizza & lemon sorbet for dessert. Two large glasses of Strega finished the meal off to perfection. We will definitely return when we come back to Roma

This is a typical tourist restaurant, we would have rated it as average but two things brought it down to a poor rating. 1] bringing stale bread to the table and then charging $4.00 Euro for it.2] they really push the bottled water, must be a high profit item.Do not go to this restaurant, go elsewhere.

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.
