We stopped for lunch during our visit to Rome and I was disappointed by the food. The mozzarella wasn't soft and is better back in the UK. I had the gnocchi and prawns for my main, which had very little prawn meat and the gnocchi was tough, not what I was expecting. I think there are better places in the... More

Amazing lasagne, best I have ever eaten BUT my sister is a vegetarian and really wanted a carbonara so requested a carbonara without the bacon, the waiter sighed when she asked for no bacon which was a little rude but understandable as they were busy. When the meal came there was bacon all throughout the pasta so my sister asked... More

We were there for the New Year's Eve of 2017. The restaurant is quite close to Piazza Venetia. The atmosphere was amazing and the food... speechless ! Restaurant is small and cosy. We were a group of four. This is not one of those "tourist trap " kind of restaurants, it's a genuine Italian restaurant. Totally recommend this one !... More

We stumbled on this place while out searching for a place to have an evening meal. We were glad we wondered this way as its really of the beaten path. The place was somewhat empty so we (3 couples) were seated right away. Our server was a young lad who was a charming individual who made our visit even more... More

We were looking for a Roman feast our last night in Italy and La Cornucopia delivered. Don't understand why some people say it's touristy. It's a little off the beaten path from the major attractions, on a quiet piazza. Prices were extremely reasonable for the portions and quality. Looking forward to going back the next time we're in Rome!

Went here 3 years ago and it's as good as ever. Had flounder expertly filleted at the table and tiramisu to die for. Staff wonderful, reserving a table for the following night without being asked.

We dove in here to avoid a rain shower and grab a quick lunch. What happened next was the best meal of our trip to Rome. The whole roasted fish was divine. The antipasti and wine were of equal quality. A quick lunch under shelter turned into a memorable afternoon of great food and friends.

The restaurant is situated in a perfect spot for watching the all-important Passeggiata, when in the summer, Romans take to the streets for the traditional evening stroll. It also possesses a beautiful garden, which is perfect for romantic couples that want to treat themselves to a special meal in candlelight. Historically the cornucopia has always brought good luck to those who have possessed it. Today in the heart of Rome, the Cornucopia restaurant brings fortune to those who frequent it.

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
