After a long day wandering around Rome in the sun, my wife and I decided to have dinner here after spotting it on TripAdvisor earlier in the day: We were not disappointed! From the open and friendly welcome, to the lovely waitress who spoke perfect English and was happy to accommodate our many dietary requests! Our starters were a delight:... More

You might just walk right by this place and not realize it was a restaurant, if you do you will be missing out. The food was perfection the atmosphere was lively and friendly and the owners were engaged and on top of every detail of our meal. It was a memorable meal and evening.

Visited this restaurant a couple of years ago and again this week, and the food is still so so good! The zucchini flowers are amazing and so is the tagliata- and the dessert yummmm! Highly recommended :)

Been there several times but this last visit was exceptional. The nero seppia starter a as well as the pasta carbonara with black truffle were amazing. Can't wait to return.

A nice restaurant. Book; it's full for a reason - the food is good value; interesting dishes cooked with pride; friendly service; nice wine list. Well above average. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

This is my absolute favorite restaurant and I make it a point to come here everytime I visit Rome. This time I decided to book two dinners because I love it that much! The staff are always so warm and friendly and happy to help or assist in making reservations. I highly recommend the Praline di caprino morbido alle noci... More

My wife and I ate here to celebrate her birthday. We were staying very close by (Residenza Argentina) and were drawn by the reviews. We had to book 2 days in advance and were so glad we did. The restaurant isn't in the most obvious location and has a very unassuming exterior but don't be put off. We were greeted... More

Amazing restaurant, food delicious, reasonable prices with great service. Felt really welcome and relaxed here. Great selection of wine also. Had carbonara with fresh truffles followed by shredded beef with walnuts and pear, it was all delicious.

We had diner here on a Friday evening. Make your reservation ahead, it's packed. And for a reason, because the real Roman food is great, and the prices are decent. In addition to the menu there are daily specials. Expect traditional Roman cuisine with a personal twist. A special thing is the home-made bread and bread-sticks, so delicious!

In a back street just off Piazza Navona, this unpretentious yet inviting plain jane restaurant was a wonderful alternative to the touristy spots throughout Rome. Local produce, home style cooking but with unexpected flair such as the deconstructed Creme Broulee. Just a great experience, fabulous staff who want you to enjoy your visit. No menu on display outside with extravagant... 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.
