It was my first meal in Rome and it did not disappoint. I had a cacao e pepe and a steak that was cooked perfectly for dinner. The place is inviting, the staff friendly and warm. Even tho it is in tourist area, the food definitely is not touristy. I would definitely go back again.

Decided to try Piccolo Buco based on the reviews and its location close to Trevi fountain. When we arrived our table was unavailable and we had to wait 10-15 minutes. After a bite of the pizza and some house wine...all was forgotten! The pizza was fantastic (highly recommend the sausage and mushroom). Although they seemed to eventually accommodate most who...

This place is amazing. The food is delicious, the house white is the best wine I can remember having, the staff is friendly and the prices are super fair. Very cozy family restaurant. Came back for dinner three times in a two week stay in Rome. Absolutely loved it, not to mention nearby Fontana di Trevi looks sooo much better... More

We visited this restaurant based on TripAdvisor ratings, and we're so glad we did. The restaurant itself if pretty small, and we were lucky to get in with 5 of us as they were turning people away shortly after we sat down. We sat just in front of the real wood-burning pizza oven. The menu includes a few pasta dishes,... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
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 can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
