We booked here after dining in the restaurant across the street and noticing how busy this one was - thought it must be a good sign - we were not disappointed. Very welcoming staff, delicious food and very drinkable house wine. Would definitely recommend.

Went there for our 41st anniversary after 3 previous days in Rome- see other recommendations! Vey Italian- no tourists, dated but great atmosphere and food. Wine list written in ink! Most not available - tell them how much you want to spend and they'll sort you. We had meat balls - lovely and chicken casserole with mushrooms and potatoes followed... More

The staff was exceptionally receptive. I strongly recommend the tagliatelle al ragu, it was delicious! It's going to be a dinner to remember, you'll not regret.

I stopped by this restaurant for diner based on the bloody reviews it have on TripAdvisor. I reserved a table even before I arrive to Rome. We were really looking forward for this diner, but unfortunately it tuned out to be the worst experience we have had in out trip. The staff were welcoming and very nice, but the food... More

We came here after reading reviews and decided to make a reservation for lunch. We were not disappointed with no other tourists and everyone coming from their offices for lunch. It made us feel very at home and like we were in authentic Rome. We really enjoyed our food and it was very delicious! It came out quickly, service was... More

I begin by saying I am a foodie who is difficult to please. This hard to find small restaurant is fantastic by any standards. I sent my food back at upscale Fortunatos and ate at Cav. Gino twice. I food, ambiance, service is just what you would dream of when in Italy. The price is right and even the restaurant... More

Great meal in a convenient location at a restaurant that is clearly popular with locals, with an ‘authentic’ Italian feel. Expect a packed restaurant at 8pm and 10pm sittings, the usual very busy and knowledgeable waiter and a quaint decoration, booking essential. Recommend: ‘Roman salad’ and ‘Parmesan & sliced artichoke’ are very popular fist course dishes here, both highly recommended... More

We were able to wrangle a dinner reservation and had high expectations from the Trip Advisor reviews. The place was crowded with mostly locals, usually a good sign. Unfortunately that wasn't the case. Cacio e pepé was good but not remarkable. The chicken was dry and the osso buco was bland with a bland gravy and peas. Thevwaitstaff was pleasant... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
