Close to the Trevi fountain so often very busy, but the food is excellent. Pizza, probably the best I came across in Rome. It's a small place, so reservations recommended as it's often very busy. Risotto was also delicious and reasonably priced for portions, location and atmosphere. I would definitely come back!

Piccolo Buco is one of my favorite restaurants to come to in Rome, I always end up there multiple times. It has a very touristy location by the Trevi, but don't let that deter you. What always brings me back? Their whole menu is excellent, but the star of the show is their extensive pizza menu, all made to order... More

In the busy touristy district of the Trevi Fountain, it was not obvious to find a place offering generous and genuine Italian food. The place is small (maximum 40 people I would say) but the service is friendly and attentive. The speciality is pizza. They do not have gluten free options on the menu but made a fantastic risotto at... More

We pretty much stumbled across this place on our last day in Rome. We really wanted a decent pizza so googled where to go in the area. Whilst unassuming from the outside the food did not let us down! The Bresaola to start was fantastic and the pizza was to die for. Having wanting to try and proper Italian carbonara... More

We went as a family of five for dinner. We ordered the carbonara, amitriciana, calzone and large salad. Portions were decent and very tasty. Not a lot of meat. Prices very reasonable. Friendly and helpful service. They're closed from 3-6pm. 10% service change. Total bill £60. Would definitely return.

The restaurant is well located, close to Trevis Fountain. It's preferable to book in advance because it's always full. You can eat there till late in the evening. We were very welcomed by the waiters, the atmosphere was very good. We went there 3 times for dinner as we wanted to try different things on the menu and all was... More

Luckily we were able to get a same day reservation. This place is very popular and always has a wait, but it is worth it. We had a pizza, pasta, and and calzone, all very good. Wonderful, fresh ingredients.

My husband and me had pizza for dinner and we loved it. It is so delicious. The service is great as well. They have a secret ingridient - spicy olive oil which is perfect. We are definitely coming back :)

Staying in Trevi

Neighbourhood Profile
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighbourhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
