The food here was inedible - do not come. The appetizers (buffalo mozzarella) was sitting under a heat Lamp for hours b4 it was brought out to us. And the slow roasted lamb tasted terrible. It was as if a chef put cranberry sauce over...More

Our family stopped in for a late lunch and it was very good, especially the air conditioning on a very hot day! The service was timely and the food was good. A little pricey but would recommend in an otherwise very touristy area.

Every one of their pasta dishes was to die for. Home made pasta with incredible says options. Also not busy since it is off the beaten path. 10/10 would recommend.

I had a side dish of fried/woked vegetables that was awesum. My main dish was lamb and that was not that good unfortunately. Nice service. A little bit too expensive for what you get.

We made a reservation but arrived earlier than expected and they seated us. Restaurant was very nice , no outside seating and it was air conditioned. Food selection was great, portions were decent and the price was good! Great service and food!

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
