I liked the restaurant, the owners are friendly and they changed the ingredients from my salad with what I wanted, no extra charge for that. Also they have a vegetarian sandwich very good and crispy

The paninis are out of this world! There are a few option for vegetarians/pescatarian and they are all delish. Try the anchovy and sun-dried tomato one!

We were on a day tour of Rome and found this place close to the Pantheon. Our paninis were made fresh and quickly which let us stay on time for our tour. The paninis were hot and delicious! The server was helpful and friendly.

Popped in for a quick lunch with our two boys. The staff were really helpful and very friendly. It’s a very small space but we felt very welcome. Great broad menu choices and it was no problem to customise the warm paninis with special requests....More

We really enjoy this place due to it being so different from many of the other restaurants around here. After speaking with the owner, he said he had decided to turn his hardware store into a restaurant because he was not getting the business and...More

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

Hi Ellina, Unfortunately not, but just across the way there is a large Lindt shop where they do have a toilet you can use... Hope this was helpful Martin
