We heard great things about this place, so we booked in advance. And good thing, it got pretty packed. It's no frills, but the food was delicious! We got a fried artichoke to start, which I highly recommend - the fried leaves taste like earthy...More

I would totally agree with previous reviewer - cramped, unhelpful staff, noisy, hot and OK food. Wouldn't rush back.

I had to try this one, considering the little buzz about it. It's well hidden, inside there are a few tables very close from each other. I wasn't disappointed, the food was excellent, fried artichoke first, then the hand made fresh agnolotti (meat inside pasta)....More

This tiny place is basically like having a grandmother cook for you. The owner is a character, the service is delightful, the food very good and totally authentic. You will have a real Italian meal here.

What seems initially like a place with charm, you know, the kind of place you're willing to be squeezed into elbow to elbow with strangers just because the food is that good?... that's not exactly what this place turned out to be for us! We...More

We had a wonderful typical Rome meal at Sora Margherita. It is definitely a little hole in the wall, that usually has a line out the door. It feels like eating at your Italian grandma's house. Servers are all about business, but want you to...More

It sure doesn't look like such from the outside, but the food was outstanding! You will most likely need a reservation for dinner, but you can likely walk in for lunch. I would highly recommend!!

My daughter had recommended Sora Margherita, and we were certainly not disappointed to have followed her suggestion, especially her insistence on trying the carciofi alla giuda - fried artichokes. Simply delicious! We both had pasta for mains, and it was without doubt hand made 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
