Of all the restaurants we went to in Rome, this place has the best pasta by far. It was fresh and rich and so satisfying! We ordered the Tagliolini with crispy prosciutto and truffle cream, the truffle steak, bruschetta, and seafood plate. All the dishes...More

What a yummy accommodating and friendly place to frequent. The food was wonderful, as are most establishments across Italy! Our waiter was pleasant and accommodating and we were quite a crew! Everyone was pleased with their choices and the bill was not overwhelming!

Quaint, delicious food. First meal of the trip at which I did not feel like I was in a tourist trap. Our server (whose name I did not catch) was delightful. Highly recommended to all.

Very nice restaurant off the beaten trail with very good traditional Italian food. Service was extremely slow and appeared short staffed. Maybe we just caught them on a busy day.

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
