The staff is honest and friendly which is rare in Rome. Went here twice and enjoyed it both times. Must check out if in the area.

Agan was a fantastic waiter, he made the time pass so enjoyably! I ordered a bacon, tomato, and cheese omelet in the middle of the afternoon and a spritz to drink. Although I thought the tomato was going to be diced tomatoes, it was actually a sauce which made the omelet almost taste like pasta! We sat outside and were... More

Pleasant house wine, very nice pasta Napoli at €6. Great spot for people watching if you are lucky enough to get an outside table.

Group of four just wanted some pasta and got persuaded into this restaurant. Spaghetti rather "al dente" and a tendency to cover everything with a thick sauce. The staff worked hard at providing us with a positive experience but overall feeling was it had been an average meal.

We had a wonderful time at this cute restaurant a stones throw from the Trevi fountain. We were waited on by the owners son and he was a real sweetheart. We had the lasagna bolognese and pizza Capri both well executed. Check it out👌🏻

Day trip to Rome on cruise. Good local vibe in here which doubles up as a shop selling wines, oils & the like, giving it a good atmosphere. Busy but good enough service and good English. Pizza at €6-8 (we bought two but one would have done). Good fries. Beer €7 a pint. I liked it and compared to local... More

FOOD: fine. Omelette nice. Spremute really good. Granita far too sweet. Pastry recommended by waiter nice but a bit stale. SERVICE: friendly but a touch slow. Some things brought out way too early for the others. PRICE: very good. Omelette and juice €8.

This is not a place to eat travelers be careful. This place is just for a quick drink. Anyway whatever you order dont try pizza! Pasta is ok. The staff is very kind!

We stayed just down the street from this place for several days. We enjoyed our first visit so much that we came back a few nights later. The food is delicious, and Mustapha and the staff are charming and lovely. It's a very comfortable place to look forward to after your day.

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
