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.

Got recommended this place it is a little hard to find but well worth it it only has a small but plentiful menu with a large wine list if you want a fast in and out meal it may not be for you as everything is cooked fresh to order it is only open for a couple of hours lunchtime... More

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.

I wasn't sure what to think when we walked into an empty restaurant at 8pm, but it filled in as the night went on. It's not easy to find, so we had to ask around. The food was good and the ambience very authentic. Everyone in our group loved it! If you are visiting in August, make sure it's open... More

This restaurant is a lovely hideaway from all the noise. I had the risotto ai frutti mare and it was delicious and filled with squid and shellfish.

Good but expensive, would recommend for a special occasion, Hidden away so no crowds and everything is freshly made. You have to try the tiramisu , it's fantastic.

Recommended by Naomi at Quirinale Luxury Rooms and a big thank you for this. Across the road and down a short alley you probably wouldn't try IF you were passing. That would be a big mistake. A true family restaurant with a small menu that delivers with taste and quality. True Roman cooking with simple dishes and loads of flavour.... More

My partner and I decided to visit this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews - it did not disappoint! We had the mixed starter, lasagne and beef Wellington for mains, followed by crème brûlée and tiramisu for sweet; complimented by dessert wines. The service was great, and I can safely say that was the best lasagne and Wellington we've ever eaten.... More

Fantastic family owned restaurant. Great place to sit down for a couple of hours and enjoy a superb Italian cuisine in a warm, cozy atmosphere. Closed on Sundays.

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.
