Recommended by the owner of the hotel our friends were staying at, this is an old fashioned restaurant and all the better for it! I had a spaghetti vongole which was just perfection followed by a tiramisu which just blew my mind! Mainly locals, lovely service and great food, reasonably priced especially considering the expensive area. A definite on our... More

It's a small cosy restaurant, with fair food and service. I thought the food was just ok, but I was happy to eat there because they were able to advise on gluten free dishes and were attentive to that, so one extra star for that.

This is a truly exceptional little Trattoria. We found it by going off the Via del Corso and getting away from the tourist traps. As soon as you walk in, you know that this is the 'real deal'. The Parmigiana is an explosion of flavours, Italian cuisine at its best. Wines are great and warrant time to taste. Staff efficient... More

If somehow you are lucky enough to have found this place I would suggest you save you appetite as of this very moment! This is an authentic Italian restaurant, the decor is warm, the ambiance laid-back and the service friendly. The hardest decisions here is which dishes to order and which glass of wine to go with it although my... More

Have been to Rome 3 times and finally found a genuine Italian eating experience , it is a small intimate restaurant and was elegant and looked like many locals dining there. Was not disappointed the food was great and reasonably priced being with the caprese salad and saltimbocca to die for. Will definitely be back if I get to Rome... More

We bumped into this little place after walking the Borghese gardens. The suckling pig drew me in and the zucchini flower fritters cinched it for my wife. The restaurant is beautifully appointed with decorations emitting the sea. Our waitress attended us immediately and after fumbling with Italian she told us she spoke English and Spanish either of which worked for... More

This place was not far from our flat. We dialed in Trip Advisor for recommendations and it popped up hing on the list. It was truly a great meal. Great prices and the octopus and beef filet were second only to the Pear Ravioli and orange sauce. Great wine selection as well. We were luck at 9pm as there wasn't... More

Loved this restaurant so much we visited it twice. Small and intimate with excellent service but more important was the food which was full flavoured, well presented, and good sized portions to keep you going after a day's sightseeing. We would advise booking or arrive early to avoid disappointment as this is a very popular restaurant.

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

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.
