We got there early (7pm by Italian standards) and the place was half full. Greeted by an older lady who had very minimal English and a guy who I think understood less, we got a table for two and all seemed to be okay. Bottle of wine was lovely as was the complimentary bread. However when we asked a few... More

We'd been recommended this place by some friends, and we're glad we followed up. Delicious, simple, genuine Italian flavours in a spotless and friendly environment. We had some gorgeous prosciutto and melon and bruschetta to start, then the lasagna and spaghetti to follow, completed by the tiramisu. All dishes were fantastic, and plates were scraped clean. We'll be passing this... More

My husband and I came here based on a recommendation from a travel book (book is 6 years old) and it was just ok. Out of the thousands on restaurants in Rome, I wouldn't choose this one again. It was small but clean and pretty bare, it didn't have any nice ambiance. A couple walked in and asked if there... More

Went here on my last visit to Rome, 3 years ago, and was hoping that it would still be as good. It did not disappoint! The best welcome that I've had here, plus fresh authentic food. Love this place and will return again and again!

If you are after good honest local food this is your stop. We were so impressed after a lunchtime visit that we went back the following night. The owners did their very best to communicate and make us feel welcome despite our lack of Italian. House wine is an . absolute bargain .... little gem of a restaurant indeed.

My boyfriend and I just loved this place. It was packed but the service was still great. Our server was an older lady who probably owns the place. Seems like a family run restaurant. I had the most amazing pasta with little clams, it was so yummy. The house red wine is super cheap and is actually very good. When... More

Once we left our luggage at our hotel the receptionist advised us to go here for dinner. It did not disappoint. Small place and food with LOTS of flavor. I had the fried squid and it was extremely delicious. Service isn't friendly but if you dont mind that you will enjoy the food and small cozy feeling of the location.

We were spoilt for choice with great restaurants in Rome but Sora Lucia was so good that we went twice, once for lunch and then back a few days later for dinner. Both occassions were excellent. Their pasta was delicious and the panna cotta was the nicest desert I have ever had, highly recommend their house wine too! Wonderful friendly... More

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.
