This place is very small and cosy, which creates a very cozy atmosphere. We had one of the best carpaccios we have ever had with fresh black truffles, as well as a superbly home-made tiramisu. All the food we had was excellent. Another thing which made our visit great was the staff, who were very welcoming, and took great care... More

Great service. Cozy. Amazing food. We had pasta with porcini mushrooms and shaved black truffles. The best meal I've ever had in Rome.

Everything was amazing! The welcoming smile on arrival, the helpful and charming staff, the food (oh those cheeses are to die for!) the wine, the desert (tiramisu is divine) - all in all a first rate evening and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you go and experience the flavour of true Italian hospitality at La Cantina Lucifero. This restaurant is... More

There are hundreds of amazing restaurants in Rome. This one doesn't deserve the standing on tripadvisor. Perhaps it's because it's in a touristy area but we were very underwhelmed. No wine list so they give you recommendations and no prices and the wine by the glass comes in expensive. Food was fine, small portions and tasty but nothing special. The... More

We were welcomed with delicious prosecco and waved goodbye with an orange-blossom dessert wine. Don't think you should come here for the free booze though because the food is delicious; service exceptional; and atmosphere cosy. Our waitress made great recommendations for both food and wine, and though the truffle accompaniment to the main dish was pushed a wee bit, the... More

Something about this place didn't feel great to me. The menu and food were fine but I felt like I was being rushed. The service was almost too good and too fast. The waitress was hovering over us (and pushing the truffles). It's like the restaurant was catering to Americans and Brits - and they thought we wanted to get... More

Now regarding the food, carchofi was good; pasta, lasagna and beef were oilly but ok. Portions were quite small. Recived mineral water although asked for regular tap water.... More

We came to Cantina Lucifero on recommendation from our hotel bartender who raved about the food. It was a nice little spot on a brick pathway in the heart of Rome. We didn't have a reservation so there was a little bit of a wait, but the staff tried their hardest to get us in quickly which we appreciated. My... More

Really enjoyed our 3 course meal at Cantina Lucifero. We were greeted with a complimentary glass of Prosecco followed by an antipasto misto with a wide variety of cold meats & cheeses. For mains we both had Porcini mushroom fettuccine with a generous serve of fresh truffle. This would have to be one of the standout dishes out of all... 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.
