We walked in here late one evening with no reservations. We had heard some good reviews of the place, but had never been inside. We were welcomed graciously, and taken to a quiet table in a corner. The interior of the restaurant is lovely, with clean lines and a modern feel . The menu was ambitious, and the food was... More

Simple but elegant decor. Service was excellent. We had an excellent waiter (Sayed) who was very helpful, informative and efficient. Food was fresh and delicious although it was not that creative but that could be my taste. Highly recommended if you are looking for a good seafood place in Rome

I visited this extremely expensive restaurant with my family, and was hoping for a really special meal. The restaurant itself is in a lovely room and the food is fish, very tasty and fresh. That is the only positive thing I can say about il San Lorenzo... Which is a real shame. It was clear from the very start that... More

The best and freshest fish in Roma. Lovely setting--modern with interesting cutting edge art but at the same time cozy--the lighting is well done. Top notch service. Fresh fish in salt a must, as is the freshly made pasta with just caught Shrimp. And the bread--magnifico! Worth the money. Save up for it and you will not be sorry. Great... More

This is one of the best places (if not the best) for fish in Rome. The staff could be a little more helpful, as we had to wait about half an hour for our reserved table to be available, but the food quality is so good, that everything was forgotten. Not a tourist place, definitely worth the price for the... More

I am chuckling a bit with my review and title, as I'm rather certain the restaurant treated us the way they did because we were not local. My hunch is they will like that Americans do not like their visit. We were basically ignored for our entire meal and given very little advice or attention during our menu selection, etc.... More

Sanlorenzo is not on the tourists radar. It is, however, a very genuine high quality Italian seafood restaurant. The decor is modern and the staff are attentative but the best part is the seafood. We had the degestation menu which comfortably enough and cooked to perfection. It came with between course cleansers which is always a nice touch. Highly recommended.

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.
