The ristorante is next door to where we stayed in Rome, and was a wonderful choice for our first night there. We were unwilling to look through nearby restaurant choices, and were enticed by the facade and outdoor seating area. We ate inside, which is...More

We purposely asked the waiter to take time between courses and so our lunch lasted more than 2 hours. It was perfect. The antipasto selections are great and the pasta was exquisite.

Sometimes restaurants around the tourist centres of Rome can be a hit or a miss. This place bucks that trend - it was simply fantastic! We had a couple of main courses - bacon, tomato and chilli spaghetti and tagliatelle bolognese. Both were superb. The...More

We just came across this place, while having a walk and we decided to choose it. Altogether it was a mistake. The place looks authentic and for sure it is a long standing establishment, but just not good enough. We went for pizzas and lasagna...More

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

La storia Nel cuore della citta eterna, tre le magie della Roma Rinascimentale, nasce nel 1860 il Ristorante il Passetto. Fin da subito, il locale diviene il luogo d' incontro della vita del Rione Ponte, tanto che la sua storia e riportata in documento datato 1855 custodito nell' Archivio di Stato. Inizialmente sita in Piazza di Tor Sanguigna, la storica trattoria romana, permetteva grazie ad un ingresso secondario, il passaggio in Piazza Agonale (poi Navona). "Il passetto", appunto, permetteva di transitare tra le meraviglie di Roma. Nel 1912 "il Passetto" si trasferisce il via Zanardelli dove continua la sua tradizione di ottima cucina e cura della clientela . Grazie alla lunga tradizione di cui gode il locale ha saputo conservare la ricchezza della vera cucina di qualita e al tempo stesso ha creato un ambiente salottiero elegante e raffinato. Il locale e affascinante, soffitti alti e lampadari di cristallo, "il Passetto" ha saputo unire il piacere estetico a quello del palato. Di fondamentale importanza e il trattamento che tutti i giorni riserva ai numerosi clienti che scelgono di fargli visita , " Il Passetto" offre cortesia e disponibilita e sorriso. Grazie a tutti questi elementi, nella sua lunga storia "Il passetto" ha avuto il privilegio di deliziare il palato di numerose personalita di spicco, oltre ai tanti politici, si ricordano la Regina Elisabetta d'Inghilterra, Charlie Chaplin, Arthur Rubistein, il Principe Ranieri di Monaco e la consorte Grace Kelly, Salvador Dali, Ava Gardner, Gary Cooper, Tyron Power, Clark Gable, Liz Taylor, Vittorio Gassman, Gina Lollobrigida, Vittorio De Sica. Sica per arrivare alla clientela dei giorni nostri tra cui Massimo Troisi, il premio Nobel Prof. Carlo Rubbia, Gigi Proietti, Alessandro Gassman, Harrison Ford, Sylvester Stallone, Leonardo Di Caprio, Claudia Koll, Milva ecc... Suggestivo pensare di poter cenare dove piu di qualcuno e passato alla storia.
