Delicious cornettos and sandwiches with many vegetarian options to choose from even at 5pm, I rather liked this place and we returned a couple of times for breakfast, coffee etc and we were staying nearby. Really tasty, quick service and takeaway option as well.

By the time that we were due to leave Rome we felt as if the staff were friends as they always greeted us warmly and made sure that we were provided with the best service. The Golosone is a 24 hour operation and yet it is clean and well managed. You choose your dishes and the staff warm them in... More

This truly is a lovely café located very centrally and close to our hotel. The service was phenomenal and the food was amazing. I had probably the best food on my entire Italian vacation in this restaurant. Would definitely visit again.

Visited twice within 12 hours and price for same item was different. When questioned about the price increase from previous day, was yelled at and told "go back to your country because we don't need your money." Service was rude and dismissive once price difference was brought to the forefront.

Ask for a gin tonic. I have never got such amount of gib before. Good night. Despite the location of a noisy corner. It's a OK place

We used to call in here for a evening coffee as it was only across the road from our hotel. On each of the three occasions we visited we were never charged the same price twice and although requesting latte macchiato's we never received two drinks that resembled each other either in looks or taste. The staff were very good... More

We were looking for a different restaurant when we found this one. We ordered only the gelato. I think it was gelato, but there really wasn't a sign which said so. I was told that gelato should never be big and tall because of its consistency, but we were there and we went ahead an ordered it. It was creamy... More

My Italian is crap but I tried. However the staff are great and put my language skills to shame, but in a good way, for without their skills my visit would have been more complicated. The staff are super friendly and welcoming. If you're a native English speaker it's okay but I think it's always good to at least try... More

We've just hopped off a plane and were welcomed by everyone here. Very friendly waitress who explained everything to us in English. Really enjoyed our food it was authentic and lovely. Cappuccino | Gelato | biscotti all very nice and cannot fault anything. Would come back here

We like to have a couple of drinks before finding somewhere to eat & it’s often hard to find a decent bar & we don’t want to just have drinks in an eating establishment. We found an Irish Bar close to our hotel that wasn't great (no review as not listed on TA & harsh to create, just to post... More

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighbourhood Profile
Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and models while bored housewives hung out in streetside cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 20:00.
