This quiet little family restaurant (there were actual local families dining there when we stopped in) is near Piazza Navona and worth finding. The atmosphere is great, the wine selection can’t be beat, and the service was very helpful and personable. We really enjoyed our dinner here! It is larger than some of the other restaurants so it’s nice to... More

Went there after finding Groupon for the place and upon arriving wasn't sure what to expect. Apart from being a great deal, this little restaurant has a lot going for it. It's on a small side street off Piazza Navona. The smell coming from the pizza oven alone is enough to make your mouth water. The staff is excellent and... More

Beautiful traditional Italian food. If you want an English breakfast you're in the wrong country! Gnocchi was best I ever had

We had the english breakfast and the eggs were not very well cooked. My bf's bacon had two strings of hair on it...dont know if it was from the bacon because it was very short and thin... Chocolate croissants were ok.

The service is awful as you have to ask three times before you can get what you have asked for. Then I ordered a meal which ended being something else brought up on the table and finally, when we asked for the bill we observed that we had been charged 3 euros for a so called "bottle of water" which...

Fed up with finding contrasting reviews that ranged from "this is the best restaurant ever" to "this is the worst restaurant ever" to "I found a hair in my food and this disgusted me so much it resulted in my never being able to eat solids again", on pretty much every restaurant in Rome, my wife and I decided to...

One of my favourite restaurants, where despite the tourist area, there are always many Italian guests. Food delicious (especially starters and pasta!), friendly and efficient service and first rate location. The red house wine is also above average.... basically, a place I love going back to.

We went in for dinner on a Sunday evening. We received a very warm and friendly welcome. We both had pizza which was amazing - I had four cheese my husband had salami - accompanied with a lovely bottle of white wine. Would definitely recommend as although it's in one of the main tourist areas it felt really cosy and... More

The food was tasty, but what impressed us most was the service. The staff was fun and engaging, especially with our kids (ages 4, 6 and 8). The pizza and pasta were great, but our favorite dish was the rosemary focaccia. We all enjoyed our dining experience there so much that we dined there a second time before leaving Rome.

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

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.
