The food was wonderful. But the attention to customer service stole the show. I'm not a fish person and the waiter made sure our entire wait staff knew that I was not to be served any dish with fish. We were entertained with excellent food and attentive service all evening.

Unfortunately, as much as I love to leave positive reviews I also love to give honest reviews and wont sugar coat anything so here goes. We found this little place tucked away, it had the fire lighters burning and looked cosy enough. We had a look at the menu which was reasonably priced and we was really hungry so we... More

My wife ordered salmon. It was fresh and tender. That piece was huge, she couldn't cope with it. I love pizza and try it everywhere in Italy. Here I found THE BEST pizza ever!

Wonderful place in a small, sweet piazza. Very friendly and attentive waiters and a good Pizza for a fair price. If we are back in Rome we will come back.

Lunching or dining en plein air is such a treat. The piazza is relatively quiet considering its location on one of Rome's busiest streets. The staff are friendly and the service professional. The food is consistently good. In 2012, I held a dinner here for 30 friends and one could not complain about anything. I return on most visits and... More

This is not the typical tourist trap you would expect in this location. Very nice food beyond the bogstandard pizza/pasta at a reasonable price.

This is a fab restaurant with authentic Italian food at a very reasonable price. Service was the usual pleasant Italian service. I highly recommend the veal, it was to die for.

Ate here twice (and we'd have done better to give at least one more famous/expensive Roman restaurant a miss and eaten here again). Excellent artichokes alla romana, good pasta, excellent bream baked on potatoes, good wine by the glass, very friendly and efficient service, very relaxed atmosphere, reasonable prices, lots of locals eating here as well as a sprinkling of...

Lovely restaurant with a beautiful outside space away from the road. Great food, excellent pizzas and make a good aperol spritz! Fantastic staff and atmosphere. Highly recommended

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.
