Stopped for a short break and snack after a day touring Rome. Situated in the very centre and very near to Fontana Di Trevi. Situated in busy road. Two coffees and a tramezzino = euro 10.50.

It was wet, it was late and it was near the Trevi Fountain and so we expected the worst experience but to our surprise this place came through. Located next to White's Hotel this is part Bar, part cafe and part shop - so it has a regular clientele who visit at different parts of the day. We came in... More

... in this area of Rome. Well, it is almost pointless to review this kind of restaurants/bars in this part of town, as they do not pay any atention to customer fidelisation so they serve you less than mediocre stuff at prime prices. It is just that having stopped here with my kids in a pleasant afternoon walking around, having... More

The staff is honest and friendly which is rare in Rome. Went here twice and enjoyed it both times. Must check out if in the area.

Agan was a fantastic waiter, he made the time pass so enjoyably! I ordered a bacon, tomato, and cheese omelet in the middle of the afternoon and a spritz to drink. Although I thought the tomato was going to be diced tomatoes, it was actually a sauce which made the omelet almost taste like pasta! We sat outside and were... More

Pleasant house wine, very nice pasta Napoli at €6. Great spot for people watching if you are lucky enough to get an outside table.

Group of four just wanted some pasta and got persuaded into this restaurant. Spaghetti rather "al dente" and a tendency to cover everything with a thick sauce. The staff worked hard at providing us with a positive experience but overall feeling was it had been an average meal.

We had a wonderful time at this cute restaurant a stones throw from the Trevi fountain. We were waited on by the owners son and he was a real sweetheart. We had the lasagna bolognese and pizza Capri both well executed. Check it out👌🏻

Day trip to Rome on cruise. Good local vibe in here which doubles up as a shop selling wines, oils & the like, giving it a good atmosphere. Busy but good enough service and good English. Pizza at €6-8 (we bought two but one would have done). Good fries. Beer €7 a pint. I liked it and compared to local... More

FOOD: fine. Omelette nice. Spremute really good. Granita far too sweet. Pastry recommended by waiter nice but a bit stale. SERVICE: friendly but a touch slow. Some things brought out way too early for the others. PRICE: very good. Omelette and juice €8.

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
