I've been coming to Rome for years and this has become a go to place. It's warm and cozy, the staff is extremely welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. The food is always excellent. I've had many things on the menu and have always been very happy. Today was pasta carbonara. Perfect!

My dish of risotto with asparagus & cheese was a flavorful variation for my carb overload. A risotto cooked properly & every bite was delicious. Speaking of delicious, my daughter had the spaghetti with meatballs & I haven't tasted a sauce like that since my grandmother from Naples was alive. The Saltimbocca alla Romana looked delicious with a thinly sliced... More

We were recommended to go to this restaurant by a local. When we got there the line was about 6 people in front of us, we decided to wait because we wanted to check it out. The hostess was very attentive and brought customers who were waiting in line little serves of champagne which was a great touch. We ended... More

Just of Piazza Navona you can find this fairly touristic place. But even being touristic it's still pretty genuine. The food is really good. We had pizzas tonno and diavola. The service was perfect because you're getting Italian hospitality (limoncello and biscuits on the house) and familiarity. You can see how the staff is enjoying taking care of all the... More

We stumbled by this place by chance since it was near the rental. It was one of tbe few places that was packed by 5:30 when most other places were empty. They sat us by the front door. Over the next hour we watched them turn over the tables non stop. There was typically a wait after 6pm. We felt... More

situated at the main tourist district, this is a rare gem that actually serves great food. We came here for lunch and was not disappointed. Fried Calamari starter is crispy and light, main course are also delicious. The staff's made us felt very welcomed and it's great to see such place would still exist in a tourist district.

We were recommended to go to this wonderful restaurant from a local. It was our family's favorite. The service is excellent, as well as so warm and welcoming. The food was really great, with many of the pasta dishes homemade from scratch. We loved the carbonara and the cheese and pepper pasta the most! The panna cotta was amazing, too!... More

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.
