Great location, ambiance and most importantly food. Lovely Roman flavors with particular attention to seafood/fish. Small but effective wine list at good prices. Staff attentive without being intrusive. Thoroughly recommended if stating close to Piazza Popolo.

Husband and I wanted to commemorate our last evening in Italy with a dinner set in an intimate restaurant with character and, of course, tasty dishes. A baby blue vintage Vespa set in the middle of the dining room was just one reason we chose this stylishly quirky place. We were served a basket of sliced bread (three kinds) with... More

This is a great little place tucked away in Rome. I went there on a recommendation from a friend and was not disappointed at all. The pasta is perfect and cooked very well. I had one with the lobster and tomato sauce and it was al dente and the sauce was not overpowering Would definitely recommend it

I visited the restaurant for dinner. The food wad ok, but I felt that I wasted a meal in Rome as there are so many fantastic places. The wines by the glass started at 6 euros, so I asked for the house wine. It wasn't very good, but they charged 6 euros for it which is probably the highest price... More

Went here for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon. Nice, clean décor. A little more pleasing to the eye than some of the more basic restaurants we had visited in Rome. The service was friendly (graciously tolerating our attempts to speak Italian) but not overbearing. We had a pasta fagiolo (excellent) and a caprese salad to start (fresh beautiful... More

We started with a pasta dish with tomato and bacon sauce but it was extremely salty. We also had the eggplant parmigiana which was delicious. Then we did the suckling pig dish. The pork was nice but the crackle was chewy. The sauce wasn't great either. The beef with red wine sauce was fabulous and the roast potatoes were lovely.... More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch. The dining space was smaller than desired but the food and service was good. To get to the restrooms you had to walk toward the back of the restaurant and go downstairs through the nice wine room. I ordered the fried artichoke appetizer and the pear ravioli in the orange sauce which... More

This bustling bistro serves good quality cuisine in a popular street in this city. The staff are welcoming and was full of locals at our visit which is a good sign. The service was brisk and perhaps looking to fill your table again as quickly as possible. A great ambiance and you need to reserve a bale in advance of... More

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.
