The restaurant is located a little bit off the most touristed areas, but it is definitely worth a visit. Very nice and friendly staff. My wife and I got very good pasta primo courses and a very tasty beef main dish. Great Italian red wine. Good value for the money and recommended.

Awesome pasta and seafood. Great friendly waitress. Had a delicious meal in a nice setting. Gotta try the home-made pistachio gelato for dessert. Can't find a pistachio gelato as good on the street at any gelateria...yet. Only complaint is I didn't care for the Tiramisu. It was more like a mousse. I guess I like the traditional one best. It...

Between our in-laws and us, we have been to La Tavernetta 48 over a dozen times in the past 8 years on visits to Rome. The food is consistently excellent, and service always warm and engaged. The lunch prix fixe is especially good, with primo, secondo, water and wine for 15 Euros. If you're around the Pantheon, forego the more... More

Have eaten here once a year over the last 5 years so it's always on our list to go back to. Sad to say that although we had a lovely meal here last month, the menu has changed and has become more limited. Enjoyed what we had, more pricey than it used to be and would check menu before returning.

Very quiet place where we were able to enjoy a delicious lunch with our friends. We did not know what to expect, but were delighted with the place.

My apartment was only a block from here. I was checking on TripAdvisor for dinner places and found this place and decided to walk over. It is on small winding street on the way to the Pantheon. They have a large outdoor seating area, in addition to inside. I sat outside as it was beautiful and warm. My waitress was... More

I stumbled upon this lovely restaurant my second night in Rome. Jet lag was still getting the best of me and the last thing I wanted was a tourist trap. Enter La Tavernetta 48.

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.
