For our last night in Rome we booked a table in Sora Lucia, based on their excellent TA reviews - we were not disappointed! Wonderful food, atmosphere and service. We will definitely be back and can highly recommend it to anyone looking for a genuine Trattoria near the Trevi fountain.

This restaurant came as a recommendation from the concierge at another friend's lodging, and I am so glad that we listened! This tiny restaurant makes you feel like you're really in Rome, not at some place where someone has grabbed you by the arm and dragged you in to show you their "special deal" on mediocre pasta. The unassuming restaurant... More

Went twice, both time the food was divine. The sea food pasta was something else, the ossobuko was a master piece! Don't miss it!

Great, small trattoria atmosphere -- only 8 tables in the entire place. Friendly, impeccable service. Make sure to pay attention to the chalkboard specials. The owner and his waiter managed the room like veteran matadors...Make sure you have a reservation since they turned away customer after customer. Started with bruschetta, tried 4 kinds of pasta: carbonara, amatricianna, and vongolese. Finally... More

We ate short pasta with black pepper and cheese. Plus lasagne and beef Carpaccio. All were fresh,homemade and delicious . House Wine was also good enough. We missed homemade tiramisu but tried creme caramel which is also liked. You may prefer for a good dinner or lunch.

It is very difficult to find good food and cheap near Fontana di trevi! This small restaurant serves simple but tasty dishes at reasonable prices. I ate there two times and both times pasta and i liked it very much..the customers were mostly Italians. Next time i visit Rome i will eat here again...

Was at this restaurant with wife and four kids staff was very polite and offered a perfekt service. The food was good and specially the TIRAMISU was the best we tastes EVER. The restaurant could be nicer decorated snd more cosy but food is perfect.

This is close to the Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. We enjoyed an appetizer of flat pizza and a bottle of wine before we viewed the fountain in the evening. Service was great and the atmosphere was wonderful. Highly recommend.

Looking for a small but well-priced, family restaurant in central Rome? Then this is a good bet. We found this on TA and were please we had searched it out. Lovely authentic local food - I had the saltimbocca but there was plenty more on the menu to choose from. Busy with locals as well as tourists, yet they still... More

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.
