We came here in previous trips. We were sad to see that Brillo Burger was being "revamped" and as such, closed. We had pasta and pizza. The food is very good. Service could be better (we waited for more than 15 min for our beers)

Sorry, but this was not special at all. The hamburger was a 'sort of meat', the lamb chops were not good quality meat.

Food and wine fantastic! Good location. Waiter was really friendly and funny. But it rained and we had to move ourselves under a brolley, the guy in charge just looked the other way pretending not to notice/hoping it would stop. Would otherwise rate as excellent.

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most

Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
