“Bella!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

This is like a hidden treasure - a lovely cobble stones laneway, with little hotels tucked away, boutique shops and place to dine. In the morning and evening you can wander it without anyone around, and gaze up at the old buildings with their shutters. Maybe even meet one of the friendly local cats wandering by.

“Hidden treasure in the heart of downtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2012 via mobile

A charming street steeped in history and a great walk to visit the calmer side of downtown. I was lucky enough to live there for 9 years and it was a real treat. The fountain is lovely and we had so many tour groups pass by all the time. It is true Federico Fellini lived down at the other end of the street. There are a number of antique shops and many restorers who know how to care for fine antiques and fine art. The large courtyard was originally the country home of an old Roman noble family. The surrounding buildings were built as artists' studios to promote art. It is truly an interesting street and has the fame of the Roman Holiday movie which was filmed there. The Osteria Margutta has been there a long time too and you can eat outside. Lovely in the summer.

“Fell as if in your own little world”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2012

Via Margutta is an off the beaten path road near the Trevi Fountain. As we walked along Via Margutta beautiful homes and cascading trees and plants surrounded us while most shops were closed but the window shopping was just as delightful. it was an amazing night topped off with dinner at Terrazza Margutta an ABSOULTE must. Chef Antonio is amazing and as Terrazza Margutta is a champagneria it's a must for bubbly fans - especially if your in the mood for some delicious risotto cooked in nothing else but some champagne!

“One of the most beautiful streets in Rome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2012

Via Margutta is one of the most picturesque streets you'll find anywhere, and a traditional artists' quarter. The cobbled street is filled with colorful old palazzos covered with vines, antique and art galleries, and several cute restaurants. There have been many famous people who lived here: the great Federico Fellini and his adorable and talented wife Giuiietta Masina (at #110 -- there's an amusing plaque there), Truman Capote (at #33) in the 1960's, and in the classic movie Roman Holiday, Gregory Peck's character Joe Bradley (at #51). This is a beautiful place for a stroll -- you'll go by the Fountain of the Arts, decorated with carved easels, palettes, and paintbrushes. Once a year the street is home to an arts festival, "100 Painters of Via Margutta."

“Beautiful artsy street”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2012

A lovely street to have a meander down, Il Margutta at the top end near Piazza del Polpolo does a fabulous coffee with homemade mini biscuits.
Fellini lived here and it is noted on the wall. Truman Capote lived at number 33.
Beautiful shops and art all along the street. Very picturesque and a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the crowds everywhere else.
