I had booked this in advance, as a friend who found it by accident after getting caught in a rain shower at Trevi had recommended it to me...and I'm so glad she did, as we'd never had found it ourselves! Although it's obviously not a total secret as it got very busy while we were there. Great food, great wine... More

Kind of unnverving to get to at night; but well worth it! Food was fantastic. Service by Niccole was amazing. Excellent prices. We tried several times to go back; but couldn't catch them open again. They are very close to the Trevi Fountain - but maybe check to see if they are open if it will be out of your... More

Without a doubt, we had our best meal here during our week-long trip in Rome. I saw a couple of pictures on TripAdvisor, and wanted to try it out. We knew it was going to be a little more expensive than the other meals we had had during the week (approx 45 euros) but it was SO worth the extra... More

First time to Rome. Found this restaurant via TripAdvisor. Nice place and less than a block away from the Trevi Fountain but in the opposite direction of the hustle of the crowds. Staff (Alfredo) was very nice, and there was a steady stream of people coming in/out. The octopus apps is top 5 of octopus dishes I've had. There's a... More

Visited on Friday 24th march. Was advised by a friend to visit and was not disappointed. The lasagne was the best!! Real cosy Italian feel to the place. Prices were not to bad either, I would say just above average but worth every penny. Would highly recommend!

What an absolute gem of a find. This is why I love trip advisor. Sat in a bar pondering where to go for dinner and really craving seafood so I log on to TA and find this delightful restaurant in the close proximity. Tucked out the way but no more than a stones throw from the Trevi fountain my husband... More

Wonderful small place and a great find. This is a nice small restaurant tucked away from the busy street, in fact we had to walk through a dark alley to get to it. But it was well worth it! We had a wonder house muscato! Probably even better than my best Muscato back here in the USA. The food was... More

Good food and friendly service. We had octopus for entree, followed by amatriciana and spaghetti del golfo for pasta, a beef steak (can't recall what it was called, tasted like an eye fillet), with corn salad on the side. We did not need a reservation on a Sunday evening.

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.
