Bar/ pub for the evening

Can anybody recommend a nice bar/pub for a friday/saturday evening?

Our hotel is close to Phanteon. We are 40 years, a married couple.

Is it worth going to the testaccio area?

I love Bar della Pace, Via della Pace, just off Piazza Navona. It's really pretty inside and outside, and a joy to sit outside in the evening to people watch. I wish you could bottle the atmosphere.

It's easy to strike up conversations with other visitors and locals, so make the most of it to get insider information.

Be prepared to be pestered by gypsies, their kids and street hawkers, a polite but firm no thanks usually suffices, you can usually have a joke with them, they are all illegal and don't want to cause a fuss. You get this everywhere in central Rome, however.

You sometimes find people waiting for tables at busy times, and service can be a bit slow, but hey, you're on holiday!

Bar della Pace is lovely and just off Piazza Navona so very close to the Pantheon. They serve excellent coffee there as well.

Thank you all for the suggestions.

What about the testaccio area, is it worth going there in the evening?

Testaccio is more a restaurant and late-night nightclub area than a bar/pub area.
