I have been eating here since 2012 & went last night. It was closed (Tuesday night) and looked as if it was closed. The hotel across the street was also boarded up and closed. It was very dark & there were signs in Italian (which I do not speak). Anybody know what the story is? I will be heartbroken if... More

It is nothing fancy, in fact it is a warm and cosy atmosphere perfect to welcome couples or mostly anyone in a low budget who wants to try good real italian food. Note that there is no pizza in this restaurant, but the pasta has a home-made taste that will make you come back. There is no options of wine... More

We found this little gem in a little alley, hidden from tourist's view. The food was simply spectacular and was a testimony of the great care and passion that the people at Santa Cristina put in what they do. Next time I am in Rome I will definitely go again.

The food was excellent all around. Our waiter had a great sense of humor and provided terrific service. Bread came warm and was delicious. House wine was thoroughly enjoyable. We enjoyed the atmosphere and are glad we found this restaurant - it is across a small plaza from a hotel and not visible as you walk down the narrow street... More

we visited after reading good reviews on trip adviser. It was not outside eating weather and maybe this was the issue. The food was poor and not cheap. the place inside is old fashioned and drab. We did not eat pasta. we had swordfish and lamb I believe.

We had a birthday meal at this restaurant and the food was perfect. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Tucked away but well worth a visit.

Tucked away in a quiet corner just between the Quirinale and the Angelicum, i enjoyed a delicious lunch with good friends. Though the place was nearly empty for lunch on a weekday, service was relaxed but friendly. Food was excellent. It was a great choice to celebrate a friend's graduation.

Hidden Gem.. just off Via Nazionale which was convenient for us because we were staying in the Eurostar Interantional Palace. This is a family run place, the waiter who was clearly involved in the company was charming and funny from the word go.. the food was excellent (The best Buffalo Mozzarella I have ever eaten) My Wiife had a Tomato...

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.
