Don't be fooled by the small street and the unassuming outside looks. Service was great, food was great and coffee was great. Both my wife and I had a great evening. 10/10 would go again.

We popped into this restaurant after visiting the Trevi fountain. The truffle linguini with mozzarella was one of our favorite meals of the trip!

We had dinner at La Fontana di Venere one evening while in Rome and loved it! We had several appetizers and pasta dishes. The hi-lights were squid appetizer, lasagna and a pasta that was pepper based. We had accidentally made 2 reservations for a Friday night, which we felt terrible about but there was a long wait at the door... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
