On entering one immediately feels the Italian atmosphere. Not at all imposing and very welcoming. Staff are great. Food excellent. Place kept impeccably clean. This is the Roma any tourist looks for. We loved it and we loved the people there. I would recommend this place to anyone.

If you are planning to visit Thursday through the weekend or on holidays after 8 reserve a table first. This place is busy and rightfully so. Really nice people and fast service.

This is the best Carciofi in all of Rome. Went here last year and the Carciofi was excellent so tender nothing left in plate all gone. Pastas very good but we went for the Carciofi not cheap not expensive. 3 bottles house wine 6 Carciofi (2 to a plate) apps 6 pastas 1 bottle white wine. 140 euros

Friendly ambiance with big table and typical Rome dishes for a affordable price. Good to be here in middle of too much tourist restaurant. Here "real" Italian are eating. Best for lunch.

The food was very close to perfection. Starters were fabulous. We recommend the house selection of starters - the traditional Roman meats were amazing. Service much above average- informal and very friendly. Would love to get here back in the future.

We happened across this place by accident having got lost coming out of the Vatican. What a find! The staff were amazingly helpful and the food superb. An informal lunch in a true Italian restaurant - loved it!!

After a long guided tour of the Vatican, we were in a need of some rest and some lunch. Stumbled upon this restaurant on our way back to the hotel. It was quite full, but we managed to get a table. The "napkin interior" is a interesting touch. We had a really good caprese as a starter and some pasta... More

Description
The fraschette have ancient origins, certainly medieval, but in other forms even date back to ancient Rome, when the peasants of the Roman countryside traveling to the capital to sell their products in need of occasional refreshment points along the way.

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.
