We've visited here a few times during recent trips to Rome. The staff are friendly and welcoming and they have a massive variety of drinks to choose from. We haven't eaten here but the menu looks good. This is a place I will visit again when next in Rome.

Found this bar before the Italy v Wales game. Very big spacious bar with a great selection of British/Irish favorites. Plenty of screens all over the place to watch sports. Seemed a majority Irish/British bar staff which obviously makes it a whole lot easier to order. I had the special "spicy Beef Burrito" which was fantastic. Great experience and would... More

We make it a habit to stop into Irish pubs when we are abroad. Just for the one. We like to see how much the place reminds us of our local Dublin pubs. Upon entering my boyfriend exclaimed this to be the 'most Irish-ist Irish pub' he had seen outside of Ireland. We ended up staying for a second drink... More

Made two visits. The first on the evening of the Irish rugby match in Rome. Big mistake! the place was heaving and it was impossible to get a drink or a meal. The second time was three days later. Much more enjoyable. Plenty of seats; excellent food at very reasonable prices. Staff very friendly and helpful and not run off... More

Me and my boyfriend called in for a drink while touring about the centre. People are lovely. We ended up eating as well and the food was lovely! Would recommend to any nationality!

Very welcoming & friendly staff, terrific selection of beers (including many IPAs), and lots of TVs with several rooms so different events can be highlighted in each. We saw both NFL conference championship games there Jan 22 – which began at 9pm Rome time and finished at 4am. Lots of folks were still there with us at the end. We’ve... More

My husband and I were getting a bit fed up with pasta/pizza everyday, so we wanted something new. We went on a late dinner (@ 10pm) on a Wednesday night, and wow, the food was amazing even at that time of the day! We had a supreme nacho with chili carne and BLT wrap plate... and let's just put it... More

A LARGE amount (I'd say the majority) of what is written on the menu card may be frozen. Fresh food is ok. Service is poor. We had to ask 3 times before a waiter showed us to our table. I asked for "chick n steak" with vegetables only, no potatoes and guess what? POTATOES! We waited forever before we got... More

This quintessential Irish-owned and Irish–run pub is situated between Piazza Venezia and Largo Argentina right in the very heart of ancient Rome; an ideal place to take a well deserved break from sight-seeing, put your feet up and let us take care of you with our infamous Irish hospitality. Serving hot food all day everyday (11am until midnight and until 1am at the weekends), from a hearty Irish Breakfast, to our homemade Irish Stew. The food isn’t by no means the only perk at Scholars, with 18 different beers on draught (very rare for Italy), this pub really caters to any mans fancy. Though the highlight has to be the Whiskey Collection, over 250 bottles line the walls; Italy’s largest selection. Scholars prides itself on being a sporting haven, showing every major sporting event on 19 colossal screens, , rugby, soccer, Gaelic football, hurling, American sports, you name it. Scholars consists of two bars and also an upstairs dining area. With live music three times a week (including imported acts flown in from Ireland), Karaoke, Movie Nights and a Pub Quiz there really is no excuse to go to bed early! Oh yes, did I mention Scholars is also open until 4am 7 days a week.

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.
