A lovely restaurant just off the main throughways near the Trevi Fountain. And that makes a huge difference to the price! The food was really good and great value for money. The staff were friendly, welcoming and attentive. We went twice during our trip as it served good Italian food and wine with a warm ambience. And it didn't feel... More

This restaurant was more of a local watering hole than a touristy place, the food was very good and the service outstanding. If you want to experience the local flavor find your way to this place!

Definitely best meal of our 3 nights in Rome. Literally 25m from where we were staying. Nice decor and tables well spaced. Excellent house wine and seafood pasta dish with friendly, prompt efficient service. Highly recommended

I followed TripAdvisor indications and tried this restaurant in Rome: expectations were fully encountered. Nice place, professional staff, great food with large portions. The bill was what I was expecting, 30 euro per person for appetizers and first dish. One little remark: 14 euro for half a bottle of wine was too much.

Based on TripAdvisor reviews, we went far to look for this restaurant, which is located in a backstreet of Trevi fountain. We went for a set menu with pasta and veal and pannacotta for dessert. The pasta was Ok, with nothing exciting taste for hungry tourists. Tasted spaghetti with a lot of cheese and some bacon slices. The maincourse, was... More

We found out about this place from my husband grandmother. It is a couple blocks off from the Trevi fountain so it was a bit tricky to find. The staff was nice and welcoming. They spoke excellent English which was helpful for us. The cheese and meat plate was incredible. But my husbands lasagna was the best thing we ordered.... More

I think we got here about 9:30 last evening, it's the perfect location close to the trevi fountains. It was reasonably priced for being in such a touristy location, both entrees were under €18 each. Food was delicious, only thing to note was portions were relatively small. Make sure to order more than one course if you want to be... More

I had booked this in advance, as a friend who found it by accident after getting caught in a rain shower at Trevi had recommended it to me...and I'm so glad she did, as we'd never had found it ourselves! Although it's obviously not a total secret as it got very busy while we were there. Great food, great wine... More

Kind of unnverving to get to at night; but well worth it! Food was fantastic. Service by Niccole was amazing. Excellent prices. We tried several times to go back; but couldn't catch them open again. They are very close to the Trevi Fountain - but maybe check to see if they are open if it will be out of your... More

Without a doubt, we had our best meal here during our week-long trip in Rome. I saw a couple of pictures on TripAdvisor, and wanted to try it out. We knew it was going to be a little more expensive than the other meals we had had during the week (approx 45 euros) but it was SO worth the extra... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
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 can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
