We had only a couple of glasses of wine each, will definetely go back when in Rome. Good selection of wine on glass, reasonable prices considering the quality. Amazing bottled wine list! Cosy place, good service and wonderful location in a small street next to Piazza Navona.

I came here for lunch with my mom for a simple salad and cheese plate and of course their wonderful homemade bread. I lived in Rome for three years and always make it a point to come back when I am in Rome. I absolutely love this place. They have a wide variety of wines to choose from and great... More

I visited it with my brother on July 2016 and it definetely was not a dead end street (what cul de sac means). Enjoyed the atmosphere, surrounded by hundreds of bottles of lovely wines.. Italian cuisine at its best with reasonable prices. Also very kind and helpful service. Grazie!

We went here after reading about it in a magazine. It was a great experience, the staff was very friendly and helpful and the wine, ham and cheese were really good. The bread was freshly baked. Really great experience!

The pate starter plate is absolutely wonderful. The hard part was deciding from the multitude of choices. My personal favorite was the rabbit. I had the roasted wild boar for my entree, which was amazing. They have an extensive wine list and offer great choices by the glass. It is relatively small, so I recommend reservations

Had been to this restaurant before and specifically looked for it again this time. Yet again the food was superb. The wine that we chose, we couldn't believe that it was only relatively cheap. Look forward to next time

Recommended by a friend but stumbled upon by accident. Took a break from the madness of the piazza and had some olives and a glass of wine in this excellent restaurant. Attentive staff but relaxed and friendly. Didn't have a main course but all around were enjoying the fare on offer. Worth a visit

This place has been blown up to be a great food place.....forget it. The wine list is great and the wine we ordered was great also. I asked for meat ball and was served fried battered burger meat, terrible......there has got to be better places in Rome to eat

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

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.
