It's nice to be treated well at a restaurant, especially in Rome, where there is so much chaos in the tourist zones that sometimes you feel like you are just part of the pack. At Evangelista, you sit in a very nice restaurant with beautiful...More

Old fashioned/traditional, I mean them as compliments. This is a quiet, somewhat formal place where the greeting is genuinely warm and the dishes are well prepared simply and at reasonable prices for an expensive capital city. Artichokes are a house specialty and shouldn't be missed...More

We spent an evening with the family there. The food was ok, but the ambiance and the service were not good. They forgot the secondo for my wife. Very overpriced.

This is rather traditional and authentic trattoria food, delicious, and the restaurant also features a number of dishes involving artichokes, as part of its menu. Artichokes as prepared in Rome are a unique culinary experience and Evangelista does them exceptionally well. The staff make you...More

A very classical restaurant with traditional, conservative interior design. Very friendly and attentive service. We enjoyed a broad variety of antipasti, primi and secondi, all convincing and special, but missing the spark to justify a total bill of 230€.

This is a kind of "traditional" place. It is traditional in the kind of people you can expect to meet a few hundrends meters from the Palace. It is traditional in the food you find on the menu (a plus: it is rare). You can...More

Like entering a speakeasy, you have to knock, be let in, and be locked in again. The first diners to arrive, we had time with the menus and staff to make our selections. Having been told twice artichoke was out of season, I was happy...More

If you are an artichoke lover, this place is an absolute must. This is the one and only place in the world where you will eat "carciofo al mattone" (literally "brick [cooked] artichoke". Not only is this dish simply extraordinary, delicious and a work of...More

I was not planning on dining at Evangelista, but I am so happy we did. I did a lot of research and put it in the backup column for Rome restaurants based on a number of reviews on different sites, including here. We ended up...More

We have been to this restaurant several times, taking care to book every year when in Rome and have sent friends to try the famous artichoke between two bricks. The owner never recognises us and always asks for our booking. The lady is extremely knowledgable...More

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
