My husband, sister and I are here last night. Their pasta carbonara was superb as were my lamb chops. The white chocolate mousse with raspberries was delicious and what can one say about carciofi except that no one dies them better than the Romans. Our waiter Marco was an absolute delight. Don't miss this place if you're anywhere near the... More

We went for dinner to this restaurant and as it was cold the heaters were on ,which my husband gets a headache from ,the staff was so kind to move us to a corner table inside and put the heater on very low so we could enjoy our meal. The food was fresh amd very good.

Delicious food and really nice atmosphere in the market square. Really good pasta and risottos plus salads. Clearly it has been here for years and you can see why - would definitely return.

Let's get this straight. The absolute number one reason to eat here is the atmosphere. Sitting at an outdoor table, on a busy piazza, magically lit up at night, stars shining, finishing off an authentic pasta dish with a carafe of a very cheap but decent red wine. I mean, isn't this why you came to Rome?! While the sights... More

We went here 2 years ago & remembered it being good. (Even reviewed it on here, which I'd forgotten). The food is still delicious and the pricing very reasonable. For 5 of us it was €132 the first night, including appetizers, dinner & 2 desserts, plus 2 bottles of wine. Second night it was €164. Service was excellent - we... More

Stayed around Campo Di Fiori, but was a bit cautious about eating in the square. Needn't be! The food here was great! Waiters friendly and polite. Didn't cost the earth either. Ended up eating here a couple of times.

This restaurant came recommended by our B AND B host. I have to say we were not disappointed. Best risotto I have ever had, great ambience eating outside, prices average, terrific homemade meals, good wine and coffee

They serve some of the best pastas I know. The carbonara is truly divine. Normal prices, decent service, amazing location on Campo de' Fiori, nice terrace, good tiramisu, good house wine - what more do you need?

When my chef friend recomended this place I was a bit sceptical - normaly I do not expect too much from resturants on a touristy adress. Do not be fooled by the fact that the hostaria can be rather empty - the are just waiting for the locals to show up - and they will show up. The bruchetta is... More

Amazing place in Campo de Fiori - great food, amazing service, welcoming and friendly staff. However, don't get the carbonara - the amount of cheese they use overpowers it. Apart from that, it's lovely restaurant. Perfect for lunch for yourself or with your family. ❤️

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
