We did not eat here. We sat outdoors and had drinks while we rested our feet and enjoyed a beautiful day in Rome. The drinks were pricy (10 euros for an Aperol spritzer), but they came with great tapas, making the experience worth while.

The salad was fresh but not so interesting. The baked potatoes were tasty but very oily..The desert and icecream are good. The service was good and couteous. Sitting in the sunshine was very pleasant

Had a delicious cappuccino and munched on wonderful pastries for breakfast outside while watching VERY interesting people cross the Piazza Del Popolo. We'll definitely come back for dinner.....!

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
