Very friendly service for a touristic area of Rome. The waiters are aware of special needs of the customers (I'm celiac and pregnant). I had parmigiana di melanzzane as a starter and saltimbocca as a main and both were delicious. I'd say it was a bit pricey but a good experience overall

Good experience. First time here. I was there with a friend looking for a gluten free restaurant. Fresh fish, nice waiters, good atmosphere, reasonable price. I definitely will come again...

Good spot for lunch. Cheap and cheerful. Nice clean toilet which is a must! They will turn you away if you aren't going to eat lunch.

Our service was attentive and warm. My husband's pasta and tomatoes were delicious. My chicken fillet and roasted potatoes also. I would recommend this quiet, friendly spot to anyone wanting very good food simply but well prepared.

Long on Attitude short on everything else. Rude waitress. Food - Side dishes and sea bream main course had one flavor - SWEET! More sugar in the staff and less in the food would help. With so many wonderful Restaurants in Rome, pass this one by!

We had a hotel close to Piazza de Popolo and it is really not easy to find an eatery in that area. There are some restaurants, like a handfull, but not a lot. This area is more known for its shopping. We found this little restaurant in one of the side streets of Via dei Corso. At around 20.00 hr... More

Stumbled across this restaurant just off the main street, staff were really friendly, pasta dishes were reasonably priced but the meat and fish dishes were a bit over priced

Delicious food, way above the standard taste we experience in Rome for middle range restaurants. All personnel is serviceable and kind, there's no pressure or oversell here - which is a difference from so many others! L'Orata Alla Melarancio: sea bream (daurade) prepared with apple slices and orange juice: oh my god! Smoked salmon and ricotta, very special too. Even... 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.
