Just steps from Trevi Fountain. Small hole in the wall (like most others). Great food, friendly service, and nice touch with complimentary appetizer quiche and after dinner lemoncello.

Eat Roman! La Fontana di Venere is located near the Trevi Fountain. It’s a good location with a nice menu. It’s an easy place.

Dear Alia, We do remeber your table very well. You were complaining about the Carbonara, saying it was way too dry, probably because you are used to one that is made with cream, and believe this is not the way it suppose to be done....More

all about action. From early morning through the wee
hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a

are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you
