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.

We have been here on a Wednesday evening for supper, found the restaurant recommended by tripadvisor and we were glad to chose it.
The staff was nice, not to friendly, but always on time when you needed them.
We had Italian starters (ham, salami, olives) and mozzarella buffalo and as main course pasta with lamb and saltimbocca with asparagus. Everything was fresh cooked, very tasty and for the close location to the centre of Rom very cheap (70 EUR for water,2 starters,2 main course and a bottle of wine and of course the prosecco as a complementary from the chef).

This small restaurant is off the main tourist roads in a little alley not too far away from the Trevi fountain. It is a great choice in this area compared to the many tourist traps around. The Piccolo Arancio is very small place with great atmosphere that serves traditional Italian cuisine. The food was good, the service ok but not overly attentive. Tables are very close to each other.

Piccolo Arancio is clearly one of the better "fast food" restaurants in Rome. The food was at a descent restaurant level and it only took about 45 minutes to eat two courses there.
We got in to a small restaurant and were placed 4 persons at a 2 person sized table. We could barely pull our chair out from underneath the table, because of the lack of space around the table. We quickly realized that we wern't supposed to stay there for very long. They took out the dished before we had all finished eating, and brought the bill the second after, without us, asking for it, and before we had finished our wine. We all in all felt that we were "pushed" out of the restaurant, so that they could "push" in new customers, in the all ready overfilled restaurant. The food was descent but one would've felt more welcome at McDonalds.

Visited this restaurant after reviews on trip advisor we couldn't find it on foot so caught a cab and so pleased we did, our booking was made on line and replied to promptly and I strongly recommend a reservation as this place is busy. We were late for our table but the friendly staff still accommodated us, we were there for a 70th birthday the food was fantastic as was the service they even brought out a suprise cake and candle. Thank you to everyone there for making it a top birthday meal.

Great small restaurant on a narrow quiet street in the middle of a busy area. The food was very good. The service was also good and friendly. Desserts were delicious. It was an experience to sit outside and have the occasional car pass by just missing your table. Io ho andato al ristorante ieri notte, domenica, con il mio figlio. Il polpo era molto delicioso!
