Thank "EatItaly" I suppose, but if Romans dined here once, as they did in the Tabernae and Triclinia of Nero's day, the New Goths from New York appear to have driven them off. It's like an NYU alumni getaway, a room full of New Yorkers...More

It took us some time to find this place, but with a little persistence and the help of a kind local we succeeded. The food and service were both good, but expensive.

We have eaten here many times over the years, and is one of our favorites. We had our daughter with us this trip and wanted to celebrate her birthday in style. This is a somewhat formal restaurant, at least for dinner. But they make for...More

Visited on my way back from the Jewish ghetto and on recommendation from my tour guide. Wonderful restaurant kinda tucked into a corner, appeared to be frequented by locals. Ordered carciofi alla guidea, an artichoke dish, also suggested by my guide -- it was unbelievable....More

One of the things on my list, whilst in Rome, was to have a meal at this restaurant. Not just any meal - the fried artichoke and zucchini flowers. I would have to say that this dining experience was one of the more memorable ones...More

Some very good reviews led us here for dinner. Location is a rather charming square hidden in a back street. We sat inside but outside is probably a better location. Waiter was initially indifferent especially after he served a hot, and I mean hot, bottle...More

My boyfriend and I came here for our very last dinner in Italy, so with two weeks' worth of culinary pressure, we were blown away that this place delivered one of our favorite meals. The decor is traditional, the wait staff professional, and the atmosphere...More

Falls way short of its reputation. The attractive, outdoor setting in no way make up for the poor cuisine. The courgette flowers served as a starter had been fried in an oil which had evidently been used to fry fish - so these had a...More

We arrived at the restaurant following many recommendations to celebrate the 22nd wedding day. It is indeed a very beautiful place, an intimate atmosphere, an exellent service.

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

Hi Barb S. As other Trip Advisors have suggested, its a fair distance/walk from St. Peters and i would personally take a taxi. Re the language...we had absolutely no trouble in conversing with our waiter.
