Fiore di zucca ripieno fried squash blossoms with mozzarella and anchovies. One simple zucca, the batter was crisp and light but the cheese disappointing. Abbaccio al forno con patate. Roast lamb and a side salad, the salad was simple and the lamb tender. Glass of house red which was fine. Large menu with a wide selection of pasta as well... More

This was an incredible meal at a fantastic restaurant which our B&B host recommended as really authentic roman food. You have to try the Artichoke, and the zuccini and mozarella in batter. Amatriciana, truffle gnocci and the garlic and rosemary potatoes were heaven on a plate. Lovely atmosphere in this first floor restaurant off a quiet cobbled street and the... More

We went there after reading online recommendations. What a disappointment… Wasting a precious evening in Rome on such a low level restaurant. The service was not good. The starters were adequate (stuffed Zucchini and Artichoke) . Then we shared the Tagliolini al limone which was the only plus point for the meal. For main we ordered Sweetbreads and Calamari. Both...

This is an excellent restaurant in the old jewish quarter. You would get excellent old traditional roman cuisine, try lamb.

Classic Roman..decent but not great food..the tagliolini al limone is a favorite even if it relies a bit too much on panna..good service that you pay for but, they lose points big time for serving "olio europeo"!!

I first went to this restaurant 15 years ago and have remembered it ever since then. We went back to Rome two weeks ago and believe me the restaurant and the food didn't dissappoint. We had the artichokes, fiori de zucca, and the best lemon pasta. Now I need that recipe and have looked everywhere for it. I guess I... More

Al Pompiere was recommended by our hotel when I couldn't get a last-minute reservation in two other restaurants. We were expecting a decent meal, but the food was great. The restaurant was crowded at 9pm on a Saturday evening, with a mix of tourists and locals. Even though our server spoke almost no English (and I speak a tiny bit... More

If you want authentic local food, look no further than this hidden gem just outside the old Jewish Ghetto. It was recommended to us by a guide in Umbria, and wow was she right! Don't miss the artichoke appetizer!

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.
