Nice service. Nice panini porchetta and panzanella. Owner was very friendly. My suggestion. Downside - little space to sit.

Small place with amazing food. We had the best paninis made with fresh ingredients. The menu has variety from vegetarian to meat. The cook is really friendly and she is always making sure everything is okay. So glad we found this place!

I liked the restaurant, the owners are friendly and they changed the ingredients from my salad with what I wanted, no extra charge for that. Also they have a vegetarian sandwich very good and crispy

The paninis are out of this world! There are a few option for vegetarians/pescatarian and they are all delish. Try the anchovy and sun-dried tomato one!

We were on a day tour of Rome and found this place close to the Pantheon. Our paninis were made fresh and quickly which let us stay on time for our tour. The paninis were hot and delicious! The server was helpful and friendly.

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

Hi Ellina, Unfortunately not, but just across the way there is a large Lindt shop where they do have a toilet you can use... Hope this was helpful Martin
