We went for dinner, myself my husband and three boys our dinner was absolutely delicious the best we've had in Rome. We plan on going back tomorrow night! The service... More

The food was amazing, service was impeccable and most important of all, it was authentic Italian food that was cooked with passion and love.

Unlike many restaurants in Rome, the menu here is nice and simple with only a few dishes to choose from. This makes it easy to choose great homemade Italian dish. I had a local Roman pasta dish with black pepper and Pecorino, which was excellent. A bottle of wine and two dishes came to 47 euro which was great value.

My husband and I had lunch here and enjoyed our meal. We went on a Sunday at 3pm and they were open, unlike several other restaurants which were listed as being open on the TA app (grr!). We started with the fried calamari--simply prepared and delicious with a spritz of lemon. My husband had their Cacio e Pepe--he wanted to... More

Our hotel was just down the street from this cafe. Our first night in Rome we were looking for a quick place to eat near the hotel and walked into this cafe. One of us got Lasagna which everyone tasted and liked. Two of us had the Tortellini with ham and cream sauce. This was a decent meal. The waiter... More

Right in the centre of Rome but still in a peaceful environment on a narrow pedestrian street. We had some excellent Pinot Grigio and a selection of appetizers, it was all very tasty. Highly recommend!

The place is near the main shopping street via del corso. The staff was awesome, the waiter that served us gave best service that i have ever had in Rome(his name was Razvi) if you go to eat here you should ask him because he was amazing. We felt super relaxed and welcome there and the food seriously was the... 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.
