Good food, low prices. We had pizza, some beef with rucolla and parmigiano, tiramisu (best) and house wine. Friendly staff (especialy the waiter who helped us, Valerio), fast service. Great experience.

The worst I have tasted in Rome. The starters was half burned bread, the tomatoes was awfull, the deep fried stuff was deep, deep fried. The pizza was tasteless. The cheese was gooey. It looked like there was soap leftovers in the wine. At the bright side the water was excellent, cold from the fridge, and the male waiter was... More

We were here twice during our 3 day trip to Rome. First we had pizza and second time we had pasta. The food is really good. Everything was very delicious. Staff is friendly and food is very good and tasty. Prices are normal considering the location. Interior is very charming and romantic. We liked it very much. The atmosphere is... More

The service was friendly, we had typical pasta dishes that were very good, the wine was good as well. Price is average considering the location. Just pros, no cons.

We were told to have a meal here as it was a really nice and friendly restaurant. Unfortunately it didn't live up to expectations. We had to wait several minutes before being acknowledged by anyone while the manager and barman directly in front of us were talking. Once seated, it took approximately 10 minutes to be served with people arriving... More

I normally walk far a way from the restaurants near any touristic piazzas but here we end up being sick and our hotel was just around the corner. And we were not disappointed! They get all the ingredients from the Campo de Fiori or near by Roman places. Pasta Carbonara was delicious, so was the starters and the house wine.... More

I must remind myself, we are in Rome. If this was in Brisbane, the food would be considered awesome, but for Rome standards, it was run of the mill. Everything was tasty, but nothing was made with love. YES, YOU CAN TASTE THIS DIFFERENCE! The staff were atrocious. That absolute uninterested, not making you feel comfortable and serving you like...

This is another place we visited three year ago and wanted to come back. The restaurant exudes sort of a old fashion atmosphere with pictures and posters of Italian movies and stars on the walls. It's a very busy place, full of locals. The menu is very extensive and you'll surely find something to satisfy your appetite and tastebuds. The... More

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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.
