We dined here at the recommendation of our hotel receptionist, who told us this spot would provide good local food. We went at 7, too early for the Italian crowd, and most of the other diners seemed to be other Americans following Rick Steve’s guidebook....More

Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside

five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to
