Our only problem was finding the restaurant. We were within 2 blocks of the restaurant with the address written down and still had to ask several people before we found it. The artichoke appetizer was amazing...make sure you order it. The other dishes were also...More

The place is very hard to find...you have to keep asking folks for directions, but it is worth it. The artichokes were wonderful. The food was good. It was raining so we could not eat outside. I thought the staff was fun and classic and...More

For our last dinner in Italy we could not have picked a better place. Our table outside was waiting for us as soon as we arrived, early I might add. Biageo, our waiter was as nice and helpful as he could be. We shared several...More

Just rude! Said all tables were reserved late Sun afternoon after we had asked directions to another place that they knew had closed! When we came back to ask for table they refused!

Piperno came highly recommended, but can't figure out why. Food was good but the service was so bad it left an awful taste in my mouth. The staff made us feel totally unwanted and were borderline rude. Won't go back if it was the only...More

After hearing and reading about this restaurant for years, we finally had dinner there last week. We had, of course, heard about the artichokes and they were good but, after several meals in Rome, not distinguished. Or at least not distinguished enough to compensate for...More

I lived in Italy for a year in the 1980s, and have been back since then for more than 15 visits. This was one of the best meals of a recent trip. The food is authentically Roman and very well prepared. I was with a...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

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.
