We stopped here for gelato from the counter (cioccolata, nocciolla), and it was so delicious that I pretended we were lost a few days later so we could wander by here again for a second taste!

Ate here with my girlfriend in the late evening. I chose beef strips with rocket leaves and was happy with the dish. However my girlfriend ordered a grilled steak and the quality of the dish was very poor. The meat was very marbled and fatty, not worth the price we paid.

However the service here is very good, we just wish we could have said the same for the quality of food.

Nothing special, pretty average.
Service was quick, drinks were expensive (7 euro for beer).
Food was reasonably priced but would recommend you go some where else.

We discovered Vitti's on our first night in Rome and we found ourselves gravitated towards this little place almost every night after. It's located in a beautiful area near the Spanish steps and surrounded by high-end boutiques. The restaurant isn't very big but does have a nice patio equipped with outdoor heaters.

I won't say that the food was exceptional but it was very good. The pasta was good but the pizza was awesome. You know you're in a nice place when locals eat there too.

The prices were very reasonable considering you're in an expensive city. The Pizza started at around €8.00.

The service was excellent. The waiting staff was great and always engaging. Sirios (sp) was great and was their star player. After our first night of eating in the patio I walked in the cafe and discovered a whole other world. Gelato heaven! We later discovered that this was THE place for gelato in the area.. You like pastries? This is your place too!

Vitti's is a must visit and will be on the top of our list on our next trip to Roma.

This was the only place on the PIazza with open seats, so we took and chance, we thought to just have a beer, their prices were better than anywhere else we'd seen, i ordered a Moz and Tomato Roman style pizza after noticing it was under 6 euro. Wow was it good.
