We were visiting this restaurant after getting nice review from our hotel. We arrived there the place was only with business people. The food wasnt so good for our liking the staff is not freindly. Also very expensive.

This place has an amazing variety of fish and shellfish, and the welcoming staff always put you at your ease. Come with an appetite, if you want to include an appetizer in your dinner... they are substantial and delicious! But maybe better to save room for the many delicious desserts, instead. The wine list includes some wonderful bottles, and the... More

My wife and I went for dinner at the recommendation of the hotel. The service was good and three of the four courses were great, but my wife found her dish very oily. At £160 for four dishes and a £30 bottle of wine, I will not be returning.

You can taste the sea in every bite at Bistrot del Mare, an attractive seafood establishment not far from Castel Saint 'Angelo bridge. Not only is the seafood impeccably fresh, the preparations are imaginative. For example, an appetizer of tempura crawfish, potatoes and apples. Or pasta with crabmeat and asparagus. Desserts are equally delicious. And the prices are reasonable! You... More

Found this through our hotel, and were blown away. We were the only Americans there, and it was packed when we left...which is really all I have to say. Service was perfect, they spoke English, helped us with our order, and we had a glass of Prosecco poured for us as we sat down. We had a sampler platter of... More

Picture a corner restaurant is in a narrow, cobbled street, a stones throw from the bridge to Castel St Angelo. In a 15th century buiding with vaulted ceiling, the first impression is of crisp linen tablecloths, delicate lighting and comfortable seating. Fish and Shellfish, as fresh as daisies, form most of the menu and the wine list, all regional Italian,... More

My husband and I visited Bistro del Mare on the suggestion of the concierge at Hotel Raphael. It was wonderful!! The service was attentive and friendly without being intrusive, the space is lovely, and the food was DELICIOUS!! Also, the server didn't oversell, which we saw at other restaurants. If anything, she told us we didn't need to order as... More

I've been to Rome on several occasions and this was the best meal I've had and I've had several really good meals. The restaurant specializes in seafood and what they offer is very fresh and cooked to perfection. Service is also exceptional. I will never visit Rome again without eating here again!

My wife and I had one night in Rome and were celebrating a significant date in our lives. We happened upon this restaurant which was right down the corner from the B&B we were staying in. We were graciously seated, and poured a glass of champagne. Next we were given a chef's gift, which was an amazing tuna bite. I... More

This is one of the best restaurants that I have eaten in - more than comparable to J Sheekey in London. The restaurant is located in a side street, therefore free of any traffic noise, and you are greeted by 2 exceptional hosts/waitresses. Even though we ourselves are tourists, 70% of the diners are locals which provides a great ambience.... More

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.
