When we were sat we received a complimentary prosecco which was really good and we ended up ordering a couple more. The waitress recommended we have the tuna tartare rather then the beef carpaccio which was delicious then the pastas came which were very impressive....More

Very hidden- thank goodness Roman taxi drivers know where they are going. Wonderful outdoor dining, great house red wine, and the food was tremendous. Didn't have dessert because everyone wanted to go back to Vinchy for gelato, but this is a great place to dine.

We visited this restaurant on a busy Saturday evening. Thankfully, we had booked. The staff, though busy, were efficient and friendly. Three of us shared the starter (tomato bruschette), which was large enough (4 good size pieces). We then had saffron and prawn risotto, truffle...More

La Tavernetta 48 was such a positive surprise! We ate the pasta with truffle cream which was absolutely incredible - the best food we have eaten in Rome! Well sized portions, and nice prices. Located close to pantheon and piazza navona, but still tucked away...More

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
