My wife and I stumbled across this little restaurant on our honeymoon. Amazing little place just around the corner from our hotel. I had gnocchi with truffles and clams and it was heavenly. Inexpensive for such a wonderful meal.

Friendly service, truly authentic ambience and a favorite of locals. We thoroughly enjoyed a truly memorable culinary experience while dining at Renato e Luisa. The establishment is small but cosy offering wonderful local wines and pasta to die for! Particularly, the Ravioli and Anchovy platter were highlights. As first time travelers to both Rome and Italy, Renato e Luisa has... More

This was recommended by our hotel manager. It is truly authentic and frequented mostly by the local population. The food was delicious and the wine super. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the latter and helped us choose an appropriate one for the food we ordered which happened to be pasta. Although a cheese plate was not on the menu... More

Beginning with an "amuse bouche" of lemon slices with smoked whitefish, a drizzle of lemon juice and a sprinkle of sugar, on a rainy night in Rome, the meal was one of the best I had in Rome. Everything was perfectly prepared, fresh to the point of wonder. The food arrived quickly, and was delightful beyond expectation. Romans at every... More

I visited Renato e Luisa with a group of friends just a few days ago and it was one of the best eating experiences that I´ve had in a long, long time. The food was creative, appetising and absolutely delicious, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was cozy and genuine Italian!

It was our last night in Italy and we wanted something close to the hotel and we read such great reviews. The hotel made a reservation for and had to wait another 15 minutes. No problem. Stood outside, had a smoke and soaked it all in. When we sat it took a long time for the server to acknowledge us.... More

We had dinner at the Renato e Luisa. If you need any proof of the great quality: we were the only non locals in a fully booked Restaurant on a weekday. Tasty authentic food, good service, only the prices were a little to high for five points.

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
