Visited Rome for a weekend and was frankly tired of pizza, pasta and spaghetti so tried out this quirky Chinese on the corner. Situated between Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon, this place is amazing. The sweet and sour chicken was too draw and was melting in my mouth as I ate it. Prices were also reasonable. Would recommend to anyone... More

Fancied something a little different, but we should have known better than to try Chinese in Italy. The cheap price lured us in, but as expected, nothing like a Chinese in the UK. Tried to order a bottle of beer, but it was unavailable. Tried to order crispy seaweed, also unavailable. Opted for chicken and sweetcorn soup, which I usually... More

We went for the set menu for 9.50 Euros this included a starter, main dish and rice. The starter was delicious (spring rolls and shrimp crackers) the main of sweet and sour less so.. tasted like it... More

When it's time for a break from Italian food, this is an excellent option. Located close to both the Parthenon and Trevi Fountain, it's surprisingly well hidden from the hoards of tourists. Very run down place, but with nice outdoor seating. Great food and very, very inexpensive. My husband and I had a large lunch with a half bottle of... More

Had lunch here after getting sick of spaghetti and pizza. Surprisingly this Chinese restaurant near Trevi fountain was quite good. Highly recommended. The empty plates are a testament to the quality.

This small restaurant 2 minutes from Trevi fountain is a hidden gem serving yummy Chinese when people need a break from Italian food.My friends had specifically asked me to eat here at least once.Their chicken mushrooms dish is so yummy that I ended up eating twice at this restaurant.

Fresh, tasty good and prompt, efficient service, reasonable prices. Ambiance was typical of in-city Chinese restaurants that you find all over the world. We had four dishes - two different fried noodles, a veggie and a meat dish. Everything was fresh and tasty. Not overly salted, little or no MSG, and not excessively greasy. I'd eat here again.

Highly recommend the soft fried noodles! We ordered two of those, the beef with vegetables (average), the orange chicken (average) and the sweet and sour shrimp (delicious). The flavors are subtle and the food is obviously freshly made. Very happy with our experience. Would go again.

Thank Hope W

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.
