The antipasta did indeed include mashed potato but it was warm and delicious. The main course portions were generous, well cooked and tasty, though the gravy/sauce was the same for the beef as for the pork. The artichoke hearts with the pork were plentiful and very well cooked. House wine (red) very reasonably priced and good. Tiramisu was rich and... More

Authentic Roman cuisine... incredibly moderately priced. Staff are dealing with a busy dining room but are incredibly attentive, hospitable and don't rush you. Probably one of the only place in Rome we went where there were more Italians than tourists. Portions were sizable, inexpensive, and deliciously prepared. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a nice dinner out of the main... More

This is a real trattoria and so there were native Romans as well as another tourist family in the restaurant. It was devilishly hard to find even though it was close to our apartment. The food was decent. Maybe I just don't like traditional Roman food. But the cherry tart for dessert was life-changing. We didn't know that you don't... More

We walked past Lilli on our way to the Spanish Steps, where we found our original restaurant choice closed, so we came back. It is located below street level in what seems to be a quiet courtyard. I would call this inexpensive but very good food. Small world, as it turned out we know some of their family in Brooklyn!... More

Four different pasta dishes were loved by each of our family. Nothing fancy, but well priced, high quality and thoroughly enjoyed.

Great local restaurant a short walk from the Piazza Navona. The 3 times I've been here it's been mostly locals, always a good sign. Try the tripe, you'll love it. Enjoy!

We visited on recommendation of our Uber driver. Seemed to be more locals and fewer tourists. House wine was excellent and the menu simple but good. Price was very reasonable as well. It is down a dark alley. Hard to find

We were seated quickly as we arrived early for dinner in Rome. The owners wife informed us that there would possibly be no credit card machine working. Her husband the chef came out and insisted we stay. He said not to worry about the credit cards and to enjoy our meal. His wife turned out to be from NY as... More

The food was OK . Prices too high for the standard of food . The place has had some good reviews but my feeling is that they are not keen on holiday visitors really . Probably a decent venue for a local but there are decidedly better places for a tourist's Euros.

Pleasant with friendly service. Waiter was courtesy enough to just ask us to order prima. This was more than enough as we did not have room for main meat dishes. Wine choice was limited to house/Chianti. Suited us as Chianti was delicious! Lots of Italians dining which we liked. Would we go again???

Thank Pauline G

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.
