This wouldn't have been my first choice for lunch... but location is important! And we were hot and hungry. The outside area is great for people watching, but also puts you sitting RIGHT next to others and breathing in their smoke, which I don't love....More

Great place I stopped at on piazza del Popolo on my way to Borghese Gallery museum. They provide a good and surprising array of appetizers to eat along with your cocktail. Really nice place, nice outdoor dining great staff and efficient with really good prices.

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
