We were pointed towards Alfredo e Ada by someone who lived in Rome for many years and after our experience there we really thanked him. A small restaurant, 6-7 tables where you can sit next to a local or another tourist and enjoy a good meal and a glass of wine. There is no fixed menu so you have to... More

This is a tiny restaurant just behind Piazza Navona, in the centre of the city. Can't book; no menu, just what the waitress tells you. A meal for four of us with one and a half litres of wine and two courses each was 73 euros and extremely good (veal and potatoes), carbonara Roman style as our main course. Highly... More

I felt compelled to leave a review given the incredible service and food at this small restaurant. From offering you wine as you wait in line to bringing you extra things to try that they had prepared in the kitchen, this was hands down one of the best dining experiences of the trip. The food is outstanding and the people... More

The typical Osteria Romana, a family business, small, with wonderful people working in it and the most amazing food. We have been in Rome for 3days and went to eat at Alfredo and ada's 3 times. If you are in Rome make sure to visit this place. Make a reservation first, since the restaurant is very small!

My wife and her parents had been here years ago and they had loved it. She suggested we should try together this time. What a warm welcome! What a modest and well arranged menu. You immediately see it's a family run restaurant and you will be treated sincerely, and that's what we all miss a lot these days, right? My... More

This is a restaurant we try to visit every time we are in Rome. It is a home experience in the middle of touristic meals. The food is simple and always delicious. Made at home, served at home. Thank you for staying the way you are.

Great restaurant, great city. Lovely atmosphere and attentive service. Ample portions of simple but delicious traditional Italian food. The pasta with truffles is decadent and just delicious.

This is a restaurant not to be missed when you are in Rome. It is small and inviting – I think there are 6 tables. Both Alfredo and Ada are gone now. Their grand-daughter, Chiara, is now carrying on their tradition of freshly prepared, homemade food and friendly service. They will only take reservations for parties of 6 or more.... More

Little cozy restaurant with charming oldfashioned atmosphere and delicious meals. We had the beef stew and cod in tomato sauce as well as the aubergines ala parmigliana. All three dishes really really good. Service very nice and fast and reasonable price. End up with the sweet on the house. Very very recommendable

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.
