The lunch set is a total winner both in terms of taste and value. At 15 Euros, you get two dishes, 1/4 cup of wine, and choice of still or sparkling water. In term of taste, it's by far the best meal we've had in Rome. A gentleman sitting next to me told me that he came here everyday for... More

my top favourite of all the restaurants I tried in my 6 day trip to Rome. Good taverna style cute restaurant, Excellent table wine so don't need to bother with the wine list. The pasta was the best I had in Rome. I didn't have a secondi. Would recommend

All around great experience! Two different artichoke and bruschetta appetizers -- very, very fresh and flavorful. Followed by lasagna, "chef's special" fresh sea bass with a dill sauce, and an order of pasta carbonara. All three dishes were perfectly prepared, served hot, and greedily consumed. All washed down with a nice menu of red wine. Service was tip-top. Will certainly... More

Just off the main tourist thoroughfare. Saffron Pumpkin Risotto (Gluten free) was awesome. Staff was courteous and friendly. Great nite out for the romantic couple!

We had lunch here and enjoyed almost everything. Party of 3, split 2 lunch specials plus a plate of bucatini alla amatriciana. The fixed price lunch is a super value, but not every dish was good. Salad, spaghetti pesto, beef stew all good, and bucatini excellent. Unfortunately lasagna bolognese was not good. Dry, tasteless. Felt like it's spent days in... More

Nothing like finding the perfect little hidden gem to dine at in Rome. Lovely, quiet, quaint little restaurant off the beaten path, but not too far from The Pantheon in Rome. Starting with an assortment of appetizers to share, as well as a Rocket & Tomato salad drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinaigrette it was amazing! Then our entrees!... More

This was THE BEST PASTA WE HAD OUR ENTIRE TRIP. My only regret going here for our first dinner was that every meal following had high expectations to live up to. The whole dining experience was perfect, from the complimentary soup at the beginning of the meal to an additional complementary lemon cello digestif. Our waitress was outstanding, she was... More

This is a great restaurant - we ate there for 3 out of the 4 nights we were in Rome. The staff are very friendly and the service is good. There is a wide menu which is very reasonably priced - great bruschetta, pasta and seafood dishes. The house wine is also good. Although it was March when we visited,... 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.
