If it weren't for the food that was fantastic I'd have rated this restaurant much less as the service slacked. The waitress who brought us the wine didn't even make us taste it, the bottle of water was just dropped on our table without it...More

Hidden on a little back street. They were very busy, but very accommodating. Had a couple of vegan options on the menu. It's a little on the expensive side, especially if you want wine and more than one course. Lovely place.

This meal was included as part of a tour so I'm thinking it will suck. Suprise, it was very good! I didn't get to choose my option (the tour dictated, not the restuarant) but nonetheless the food was good and the service was great!

Dear Guest, We are really sorry that we made you wait for such a long time, but this is due to the fact that to cook gluten-free pasta, it is necessary to boil the water in a separate pot. Therefore, it takes about 30 minutes...More

Went back after two years. The seafood carbonara pasta was still above average, very tasty. However, I had high expectations of the tiramisu but it wasn't as good as I remembered. All in all the food was good but we have visited better places.

A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is
all about action. From early morning through the wee
hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a
never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or
take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming
gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of
hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle
are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you
