You do not really expect to find a place like this in a major European city, but close to Pantheon and the Corso, there in a small side street lies Da Gino al Parlamento or Trattoria Dal C. Gino. A genuine varm and welcome atmosphere, great traditional Italien food at very modest prices. The place is always full, so book... More

The only problem is to get a place here - very few tables and few open hours but if you are lucky (or reserve beforehand).... It is like got into the 50s Rome. Somehow it is very family feeling inside. Most of the clients are either local or very local. Great food and wine - this goes without saying. Waiters... More

Took friends here for their first night in Rome and, of course, they loved it. Simple but quality food, ample portions, friendly service. Always reliable, always crowded, so reservations recommended.

This was highly unpleasant. The attitude of the waiters was nothing short of appalling - throwing menus onto the table, forgetting (repeated) drinks orders, and being plain, damned rude. The food was nothing to write home about, either. Perhaps we caught them on a bad night.

The restaurant is a bit packed but very cosy and well-decorated. The service was fast, and the staff was very friendly and fun. The food was excellent: we had traditional local food (gricia, carbonara, coda alla vaccinara, trippa, carciofi alla giudia, puntarelle alle alici), and everything was very good. Booking in advance is highly recommended.

La Trattoria Dal Cavalier Gino is tucked away in a little alley close to the parlamento. You will definitely have to reserve! They have two seatings, one around 8pm and one around 10pm. The place is lively and loud, it is a typical trattoria (as opposed to a maybe more formal ristorante), so this is maybe not the place for... More

A very small but high quality trattoria. Doesn't open until 1 pm, doesn't serve coffee, you have to make a reservation even for lunch, but it is definitively worth it. Excellent artichoke and risotto. I will definitively return soon!

First advice: book in advance (a few days). We fortunately arrive at the opening in the evening and got the last table for two, close to the counter, and the phone was constantly ringing with people wanting to book tables (mostly locals). This place is just next to the parliament, and quite a number of officials come also there to... More

Very popular Trattoria, booking is essential. A few tourists, but mainly locals. The food was good, but not gourmet. I was not happy with my cacao e pepe, watery not creamy, but they deducted cost from the bill. The oxtail, though was excellent, as was veal chop. House wine is good and at 8euro per litre, who could complain. A... More

Charming little place with gorgeous owners. We found it by accident and fell in love, simple but well made italien food in a just romantic place. Grab a snack there when you pass by.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
