Just had dinner with my wife in Hostaria dell'Orso. The restaurant is situated in an old palazzio-like building, close to the river. The entry to the restaurant is bit strange: it's like entering a night club! But the food is typical Italian, of great originality, and of excellent quality! Our main course - seabass with artishoke hearts was very well... More

It was a nice antic Hostal, lungo Tevere, today the "Orso" is now longer a hôtel, it has been transformed into a luxury class restaurant, much frequented by U.S. visitors in whose Roman sightseeing program "the Orso holds, if not as important a place as the Trevi Fountain. Excellent food, you need a reservation for this inn.

I don't know what I like better: the atmosphere, the subdued elegance, the antique touches, the service, always top of the line, or the food. Which is divine. No kidding. Your palate would thank you for bringing it here. And your memory would allocate a special quarter for remembering that night. Located on the first floor of a XIV Century... More

This restaurant is at the end of a triangular block of Via dell 'Orso and Via di Monte Brianzo. The spaghetti alla vongole with only half a dozen clams was a great disappointment, especially as I know that within a couple of hundred metres there is another restaurant which excells in this dish at half the price....admittedly in very different...

I first visited Hostaria Dell Órso back in 1987 recommended by my sister who lived in Roma at the time. Still superb in every way. The antipasto outstanding with the mozzarela buffala and the prociutto. The artichokes were fantastic we had fish and pasta dishes, The fruto de mare was great as the lingine alle vongole ( with clams ).... More

We arrived to a very quiet building - in fact we were the only guests but as we were a group of nine seated in a small area off the main restaurant this did not matter.

authentic Italian palazzo next to the river. Really nice setting, and a beautiful terrace. The service was trying to be 5 star but it lacked a bit of luster!! Food was good, however menu was very limited for a michelin restaurant. Wine list just superb but clearly not enough to make up for the night, as service made us feel... More

We booked this restaurant through Amex (they have now updated their records following our feedback) to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We arrived 10 minutes early and weren't asked if we would like a drink at the bar or would like to go straight to our table. We were shown to our table and given menus then the waiter left us....

Neighbourhood Profile
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 drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
