Food and atmosphere very nice. Service was worst we have ever experienced. Under-staffed given number of tables. Never received our first course and were ignored most of the night. Same with many other tables near is. Very disappointed with the service

We went twice to this family run restaurant with a special and friendly athmosphere. Second time coincided with large groups from a cardiology conference, so the staff was struggling to keep up with the service. We particularly would recommend the Fantasia antipasto dish with an assortment of starters that was really tasty and the Abbachio Scottaditto (lamb) also tasty. And... More

We were a group of 8 on Saturday night and had a wonderful meal at Ar Galleto. The family that owns the restaurant were all so friendly and the wait staff was so attentive. We had great wine and the appetizers were delicious and so different. We had the usual caprese salad but we had cod cooked in tempura, it... More

This was on several guide books as a great spot for dining. After we walked around Campo de Fiori, we decided that there had to be better options in the area than those on the Campo. Too much hype, too much macho and drinking, and too high prices for us to consider these spots. Around the corner in a small... More

Sat outdoors with a reservation. It is slightly away from the square so it's less crowded but also less of a view. The food recommendation was excellent. The tuna was delicious and the pasta was great too (although I don't like artichoke I still don't know why I said yes to the suggestion). Fresh warm bread in a sacloth bag... More

We had a wonderful meal and service on Tuesday. Food, wine, service and ambiance was superb. We were impressed. Found ourselves by the French embassy on Friday and thought lets eat there again. Wow, I've been less rushed at McDonalds. We were early and restaurant was not busy yet. I understand that they were filling up fast but there was... More

Recommended by our Context tour guide as a step up from a trattoria, it did not disappoint. Lovely dining al fresco in Piazza Farnese, with heat lamps on a cool evening. Antipasti of carciofi guideca and zuppe da pulpo were both excellent (zuppe was amazing and enough for two). House special that night was pasta gambere, delicious. Grilled lamb was... More

We were about 18 people and we booked this place for a work dinner. We had to pre-order our food. It's a cool restaurant very near Campo di Fiori. Seating outside was really great in the cool weather last week. For starters the octopus was very delicious, I had a fantastic penne pasta al dente (off course) which was also... More

We were here four years ago and it is still great. Good prices for wine and food. Carbonara is the real deal made with pork cheeks not pancetta or bacon and the saltinbuca my favorite.

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.
