Tucked away in a quiet side street one can dine under a canopy of lights and vines. The romantic setting is matched by attentive, friendly service and lovely traditional cuisine.

Get away from the crowds, sit down and have a nice glass of house wine and eat decent (read: no tourist menu) food. This is all you need.

Amazing hidden pearl in Rome to have nice meals. Prices a little higher than usual but waiters are highly professional and the restaurant is worth of being visited.

My husband picked one place after much research and sifting through reviews. This is what he chose because of the adorable ambiance outside with the vines and lights. Once seated we had a clueless waitress. A blonde woman who couldn't even recommend a good wine...More

Dear customer, we are really sorry for this review. Normally we serve well seasoned our every course but it is always possible to ask our staff to have more oil, salt, etc. We are sorry, however, that no one asked us this! Regarding the quantity...More

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

Antico e moderno. Abbiamo costruito l'idea del ristorante Il Bacaro cercando di rispecchiare l'idea di Roma in ogni suo aspetto: dal design attuale che esalta le atmosfere romantiche del nostro vicolo alla cucina esperta che rielabora in chiave moderna materie scelte con cura, passando per una delle cantine più raffinate di Roma. A Restaurant that reflect all sights of Rome thanks to its modern design, its romantic atmosphere, our fine cookery and the finest wine in Rome.
