We ate at Trattoria Polese two times and we liked everything: the pizza and lasagna were very good, the fish was very tasty and the desert ( semifreddo all’amaretto) was to die for. Highly recommended.

We came here late in the evening. We told the bartender that we only want drink. The service was extremely poor and we promissed not to come back here ever again

Returned to Polese for Pranzo right from the station for a meal with friends. A beautiful day to sit outside. I love their bucatini all'ammatriciana. Good house wine too. Great Service.

They wanted to sit us outside (on a coolish day) and after some discussion let us in the small dining room. Turned out we became the only tourists inside. Had better experiences elsewhere. Not a do over.

I visited Trattoria Polese for a respite from a long day of walking and a glass of wine. The staff was very accommodating, the house red was tasty, and the setting, off the street and behind a statue under flowering trees was very relaxing. I...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
