Walking by on Tuesday night the waiter called to me as we passed, as is typical in Rome. Called me a foul name in Italian when we didn't stop. Thought I wouldn't understand him. No wonder they are rated so low.

We have been in Italy for four days, eaten in good and bad places but La Scaletta is rock bottom and should not be serving food for human beings. Ordered steak, pizza and fettuccine, all deadly edible. Eat somewhere else.

Good food and friendly atmosphere. Prices are okay, even though you are in the tourist area around the phantom.

Was a bit disappointed when I sat down randomly as the kids were hungry and THEN read the reviews, but we were pleasantly surprised. The kids pizza and french fries were on par with some of my favorites. I like really thin crust and that's...More

We discovered this restaurant on our first trip to Rome. This was our 4th trip to Rome and we have enjoyed the pizza at La Scaletta every trip back. The pizza is thin w/ fresh ingredients and baked perfectly. The salads are also fresh and...More

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
