A nice selection of wines and food in the city center. Slight French flavour to everything :) Highly recommend for a cosy dinner for two or a small company of friends!

Wine was good, charcutery and cheese too. We never had the chance to taste the forgotten microwaved "trippa" but the best is that we were told that its is better for us to speak english than Spanish after being laughted at. That comment is out of line. The name is right "dead end"

They helped us on the choice of the wine, a bottle of sparkling white that we appreciated so... More

We popped in here for lunch one day and it did not disappoint. Looking at the menu, there are some odd selections of food to choose from including a wide selection of pate, and no pizza in sight, but we both ordered lasagne and it was really very tasty. It has definitely been the best meal we have eaten this... More

This is an excellent spot! The cheese ravioli may be some of the best I've had. The caprese is fantastic. The cheese selection terrific, and the tiramisu cannot be beat! Also, they have one of the better wine selections I came across in Rome and it's also entertaining to watch the waitstaff grab bottles that are stores high up in... More

This is a small and narrow restaurant close to the Piazza Navona. It serves very good food, just a bit different from the standard fare. We enjoyed it a lot. It is obviously a popular destination so it was crowded. We were asked to share a table with another couple, which for us was not a problem at all. Good... More

Fast and good service, a great list of wines. Crowded, lots of tourists. Reasonable prices and good food. Nice pit stop in Rome for tourists on the run to a next point of the route

Came here after good reviews from Lonely Planet and Trip Advisor. Wine was good, but food terrible - heated up and blunt.

The owner of the apartment I was renting recommended this place as giving an authentic Roman experience. The service was excellent, the wines very nice and the food was perfect. I had the oxtail and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great place to stop for a nice lunch in the heart of Rome.

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

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.
