It is probably cliche to eat spaghetti in Rome, but their spaghetti is no joke. The Caprese salad is not to be missed. The restaurant doesn't open till 7:30 and people make reservations starting at 8:30 to 9, tell the waiter you will be gone...More

Food was excellent. Quality of service was atrocious. The food was thrown at us rather than served. I think waiting staff view customers as an inconvenience.

Went to this place twice with friends. Great restaurant offering authentic Roman cuisine. They have English menus which was very helpful. The salads were surprisingly large, American portion sizes. The staff were amazing. I would definitely go back to this restaurant

Overall, the food was nice and good value for money. However we felt underappreciated by the waiting staff. We were the only party within the restaurant to not get bread and oil and when paying by card at the end the waiter literally threw the...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

Pizza restaurant, right in the heart of Rome, a stone's throw from Campo dei Fiori, Ai Balestrari is a place where there is still the culinary tradition of the capital, where the plates are those of the past and you can still enjoy the genuine flavors of the kitchen traditional.
