In a good location only a short walk up from the Trevi Fountain we found this restaurant to be so delicious we visited twice back in 2013. I returned to Rome this summer and made a point of eating here again and it was just as nice as I remembered. The pizzas are light, fresh, a very generous size and... More

Tiny place. Food was excellent and service in this family establishment was very welcoming and attentive without being pushy. Don't be put off by the small size! Def worth a visit if you are near the trevi.

It looks very cosy, in a great location, tables set on a back street close to Fontana Di Trevi, lovely table cloths in green and white..But the food did not make justice to all that...The food was not good, the pasta was poor and the veal tasted of Oxo cubes. While I enjoyed the setting, I did not eat much,... More

Charming little family run restaurant away from the hustle and bustle of the trevi fountain. Had some lovely food here. If youre a fan of fish, try the seafood bruschetta to start, then go for the sea bream. Two thumbs up!

Our family of four found this place near the restaurant we were looking for that was closed for August. So the side street was relatively quite for a Sunday dinner. There was one waiter (looked liked the owner) who bustled about us and five tables outside. We were looking for simple and flavoursome pasta and we were not disappointed. Each... More

It is a small restaurant, apparently run by the two owners (husband and wife?) who seem to put their whole heart into it. Located in a tiny street close to the Fontana di Trevi, with some real Italian flair. Only a few tables for sitting outside. The service is excellent, they will anticipate on your every wish. The dishes are... More

Plain food and ok service. Situated in a narrow street with flow of cars and motor cycles passing close to the outside tables.

As an expat living in the center of Rome, its tough to find a good, quality, simple but good restaurant in the center, especially near the highly touristy Trevi fountain area. I had seen La Rosa passing by and interested, went with three other expat friends who live in Rome. It is run by a Roman husband and wife combo... More

Off the beaten path, small place about 7 to 8 tables. Family run. Been there on 3 different trips to Rome and always felt at home. Homemade food, no rush to turn the tables. I recomended it to 2 other friends who both went to Rome and they enjoyed it.

We spotted this place near the Trevi Fountain and were drawn in by a Trip Advisor sticker on the door and what seemed to be a pleasant place on a "back alley". It appears to be run by a husband and wife team. The wife took our order. On of the antipasti was mussels in tomato sauce. The mussels came... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
