This restaurant was more of a local watering hole than a touristy place, the food was very good and the service outstanding. If you want to experience the local flavor find your way to this place!

I think we got here about 9:30 last evening, it's the perfect location close to the trevi fountains. It was reasonably priced for being in such a touristy location, both entrees were under €18 each. Food was delicious, only thing to note was portions were...More

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
