Description: A restaurant near the Trevi FountainPiccolo Arancio is located in a tourist destination in the heart of Rome, just off the Piazza del Quirinale and the Trevi Fountain. Despite its central location, it's situated along a narrow and quiet alley. Due to its great position, this restaurant has a unique atmosphere: small but warm and cozy place. It's loved by local Italian people for lunch during working time. It's nice! Chef's recommended menu is mainly Roman cuisine with a lot of seasonal ingredients. And our restaurant features the pasta like typical dish made by Italian Mamma. Ravioli Arancio (Ravioli with orange sauce) and Fettuccine Ragu' di Abbacchio (long pasta with meat sauce of lamb) have a delicate source flavor and just quantity. Dolce is also ideal as a good conclusion after meal? Millefogli Frutti di Bosco (Mille-feuille of berry fruits) is recommended.

How can you not love a restaurant called "Little Orange"? It's adorable, and right next door to the apartment we're renting on Piazza Scanderbeg, near Trevi Fountain. We can often hear their music floating up to our windows at night. Anyway, the food was delicious, the staff friendly and helpful, the ambiance inviting, AND it's not overrun with tourists. Planning on visiting again before we leave. Check them out--you won't be disappointed!

The first time I went to Piccolo Arancio was four years ago when I went to visit Fontana di Trevi and Quirinale. On my way back to the hotel I discovered their amazing cuisine and fell in love with it. Now every time I go back to Rome, I go there as many times as possible! I strongly recommend prawn's cocktail or prosciutto di montaña as starter, fettuccine with salmon and rigatoni carbonara as main course, and the amazing tiramisu as dessert!

Three of us had a delicious dinner here at a very reasonable price. We started with fried stuffed zucchini flowers which were excellent. After pasta we had delicious desserts. It was especially nice to find this restaurant on Trip Advisor because we had a very bad experience somewhere else earlier that day.

I found this restaurant through a guidebook,and at first look it doesn't impress.You're on a teeny street near the Trevi Fountain.All the tables outside were taken,and we were asked to wait a bit.Suddenly two of the waiters brought out a table and chairs for us.
Once we got our table stable,we began a wonderful dining experience.
We were given some Prosecco on the house,then we had fried artichokes and stuffed zucchini flowers.Terrific.
I had their signature pasta,ravioli with orange sauce.Delicious!My husband had tagliatelle in a vongole(mediterranean clams) and porcini sauce.It was one of the best he's ever had,and we come from NYC.
Our waiter was very sweet and had a very nice demeanor.
We ended our meal with some tiramisu,which didn't disappoint,then strolled to the Trevi.
Search out this little beauty,you won't be sorry!

We saw a review about Picollo Arancho at tripadvisor. We went on Monday night , but it was closed. We tried again tonight. Everything we ordered was great. I had the Ravioli with arancio sauce. Very good!

Nós vimos o review no tripadvisor. Fomos na segunda, mas estava fechado. Voltamos hoje e Tudor que pediimos , estava ótimo. Eu pedi o Ravioli com molho de larkana. Muito bom.
