Oh my goodness how I love this place. Only restaurant in Rome we returned to for a second meal (and we didn't have a meal that wasn't great anywhere). The Cacio e Pepe was an eyes-closed-savor-every-bite experience, and the Bufala pizza was a work of near perfection.

Intimate restaurant, very good selection of all types of dishes. Had the pizza marguerita and a half carafe of wine for lunch. Fantastic food service and reasonably priced. Had... More

It was my first meal in Rome and it did not disappoint. I had a cacao e pepe and a steak that was cooked perfectly for dinner. The place is inviting, the staff friendly and warm. Even tho it is in tourist area, the food definitely is not touristy. I would definitely go back again.

We found this place walking away from Fontana Trevi and searching for place with ok food that is not gonna tourist trap. Place is really small, service friendly, pizza was good, prices reasonable.

Decided to try Piccolo Buco based on the reviews and its location close to Trevi fountain. When we arrived our table was unavailable and we had to wait 10-15 minutes. After a bite of the pizza and some house wine...all was forgotten! The pizza was fantastic (highly recommend the sausage and mushroom). Although they seemed to eventually accommodate most who...

This place is amazing. The food is delicious, the house white is the best wine I can remember having, the staff is friendly and the prices are super fair. Very cozy family restaurant. Came back for dinner three times in a two week stay in Rome. Absolutely loved it, not to mention nearby Fontana di Trevi looks sooo much better... More

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
Trevi
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.
