We arrived for dinner without a booking, the ground floor restaurant was full so we were shown to a table in the basement. However, this proved to be a pleasant room, tastefully decorated with wine racks around the walls. Service was swift and very attentive. My wife and I had a delicious dinner accompanied by a great bottle of local... More

Amazing place, highly recommended. We had pasta and dessert, and compared to other restaurants in Rome, the quality and taste was very good. We were recommended to visit by our hotel, and we were not dissapointed. Came to talk with other guests who was visiting for the second time because of the food and the service.

We had just arrived from the airport at our B&B. It was already short before 11PM when we decided to test out the restaurant. First positive point: they were still serving food so late. We had a superb pasta dish each, accompanied by wine recommended by the waiter. The setting is very cosy and accommodates both couples and families. A... More

Our meal at La Buca di Ripetta was excellent. We decided to eat here on our last night in Rome and wanted to do it "big". We ordered the chickpea soup for starters, spaghetti with parmesan and fettuccini with sausage and mushrooms for the 1st course and the grilled calamari and bakalao in tomato sauce with a side of potatoes...

It was immediatly exchaned no questions asked. Don't miss the fried zuccini flowers...we will certainly go... More

We were looking for a good restaurant for dinner and were lucky to choose and get into La Buca di Ripetta - its menu looked good and the place looked pleasant. We shared an insalada caprese which was good and fresh (with good tomato!). I had my favorite pasta carbonara, my husband had the stuffed suckling pig, both very good.... 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.
