Went here for dinner and had a lovely Italian meal. We were greeted by very friendly staff and the service was first class. Very big selection of food on the menu, we went for the bolognese pasta and the fillet of beef with roast potatoes. Both meals were very nice and cooked perfectly. Well worth trying if you are near... More

Great place for Roman food. Try the roasted piglet with rosemary potatoes. And the fried artichoke (carciofo alla giudeia). Be ready to wait outside even if you have reservations!

Recommended by friends, our guide book, and also by our hotel concierge. We went twice , each time for dinner , in three days. Good menu with plenty of choice. Worth sharing some dishes eg a pasta or pizza , otherwise you won't finish. There seems to be a permanent queue of locals outside and , coupled with the fact... More

The owner of the apartment we rented during our stay recommended this restaurant. He advised booking ahead, which we did. Upon our arrival, our table was not ready quite yet, but the hostess apologised and said they were just waiting for our table to clear and that it would be a very short wait. No problem for us, we appreciated... More

I can recommend this restaurant. The menu contains a wide choice of delicious traditional Italian and Roman specialities. The waiters are very attentive and the prices are reasonable.

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.
