The Trattoria Moderna is such a delight. I come to Rome for three months every two years, and this is always the first place I go for a meal. The menu is fairly basic Roman but executed with creativity and consistently excellent. The warm buffala con speck antipasto is a revelation, as is the salmon/arugula salad. If you're looking for...

We came here as a group of 6 people and we were seated no problem without a reservation. The service was great! Our waiter was attentive and funny. And the food was really really good. Would definitely recommend ordering the artichoke as a starter

There's way too much good food in Rome to waste your time at this little neighborhood hole in the wall. They were friendly enough but the service was off and the food was totally average.

Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed the meal and a chat with the waiter. However, the attitude when you are swarmed with jokes and a list of today's specials might seem obtrusive to some. So don't go there if you plan to have a quiet and slow dinner. The prices and the portions are average.

This restaurant had great food and very reasonable prices, especially for Rome. I was there with a group of six and we all ordered various pasta dishes - everyone seemed impressed with what they ordered. Do yourself a favor and try the roman artichoke if you like garlic. All in our meal came out to under 20€ a head, with... More

We stumbled upon the restaurant during an evening walk and decided to have a meal. Based on this experience, we chose to come back teo days later for a second dinner. The staff is friendly and welcoming, and the food is good. Overall we had two very pleasent visits to Trattoria Moderna. We highly recommend visiting the restaurant.

Over two long trips to Italy, this was easily the worst restaurant meal I have ever eaten. Two of us had pasta with asparagus. The pasta was undercooked (not al dente, undercooked). There might have been as much as one sprig of asparagus in the dish. Others had seafood pasta dishes. They did not smell fresh and half of the... More

My wife and I came here for a quiet night out. We wanted to try something a like calmer than the bustling restaurants in the nearby piazzas. We weren't disappointed, the place had a chill vibe with friendly and engaging waiters as well as a good seafood. Overall an enjoyable experience.

This is a Great spot for lunch ideal for people watching as it's a busy thoroughfare we had a pizza and calamari The service was good but the calamari really let the place down The oil was very old which made it taste burnt and when asked for a salsa or marinara for the side we were told this wasn't...

The freshness of the dishes of Trattoria Moderna is unparalleled. In an elegant and refined place, but at the same time welcoming! You can enjoy delicious Roman cuisine revisited with unusual combinations that enhance the taste of each course, like fresh fruit combined with meat or ricotta cheese with chocolate. Chef Livio is looking forward to welcoming you!

Trattoria Moderna is centrally located just a few steps from Campo De' Fiori square.

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.
