This restaurant was recommended by the front desk at our hotel. Remarkably there are a lot of fish dishes on the menu. My wife and I shared the turbot with a starter of steamed artichokes. Both dishes were quite good. Accompanying the grilled fish was a layer of very thinly sliced potatoes that were baked crispy almost like thick potato... More

Every time that I visited the dining rooms were filled with locals once including a large group of catholic bishops from around the world.

We ate at La Pollarola a few years ago, and since then we longed for their 'jewish' artichoke. This time we searched for the restaurant for a few days (after forgetting their name unfortunately). Their artichoke is still amazing, and we highly recommend the grilled sol as well.

This was the second year we visited this place and it didn't disappoint. Our waiter Rocco was friendly and helpful, service was great, food was delicious, and atmosphere was great. My only disappointment was that they didn't have the dish I was looking to enjoy again, but that was not the fault of the restaurant, it was due to Mother... More

Sitting outdoor and inhaling Rome and have a decent lunch here is a very good experience. We had starteres and first course - and that was perfect and sufficient for lunch. Good quality of food and prices OK. Menu was not in English - normally a good sign to go after. Service friendly and efficiently.

Years ago we visited La Pollarolla with our son who was studying in Rome. The meal was so memorable we had to make sure we went back when visiting Rome with our two daughters. Once again it was our favorite spot. Rocco took great care of us. We set the menus aside and let him be our guide. From the... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend whose family is from Rome and and are friends with the owner. The food was excellent and packed with flavour. The staff were also very attentive. All round excellent meal. Would happily go back!

Keep away from this place. They overcharge the plates. More than a tourist trap: a real extortion. So we ordered fish (we asked for some advice; the waiter was very "friendly" and said the tuna was fantastic). The meal was in fact good but they charged 1kg (yes, 1kg) of fish for a regular meal. We complained but ended up... More

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.
