What an authentic and amazing experience. We have the selection of meats and cheeses: beef carpaccio was extraordinary and the pecorino out of this world. Also recommended the Gorgonzola and tellegio. Friendly service. Wonderful wonderful food and not touristy. As most of the reviews suggest the wine list is immense but we chose a rose which was dry and crisp... More

After hearing about Cul de Sac on a travel blog my boyfriend and I were excited to go for dinner. Unfortunately, it did not live up to our expectations. We were seated outside on a table for 4 with another couple who we did not know, which although we would have preferred a table for 2, was fine. From the... More

Food is moderate, nothing too special, however service is terrible, waiters inpatient, looks like they come to celebrate with other staff in the restaurant rather than to serve the customers. We felt we disturbed them when we entered the restaurant, we preordered a table, when we just arrived and say we ordered a table they couldn't care less, just point... More

Located just one block from Piazza Navona, this eatery offers a great selection of wine (not the cheapest, but excellent) and a good selection of rustic Roman food. Good service, friendly staff without the flamboyance of the nearby Piazza Navona restaurants. I had a lovely four course meal, with two glasses of beautifull red wine and paid 50 € plus... More

We arrived 3 freinds for our last night in Rome. The wine and food were wonderful, even as a vegetarian I found a lot to eat (I recommend the artishok pai and cheese plate). All the wine we had was excellent. Bottom line-out I strongly recommend!

Was recommended this restaurant by a friend and would like to now recommend it to all on TripAdvisor. A small independent restaurant that sells fresh and very tasty food and not expensive. Also if you want a huge selection of wine this is your place.

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.
