I almost did not want to review this place because I don't want more people to discover it! But I'll do it for those in search of a true roman meal. We were stuck in a rain storm, the streets were flooded during the daytime and rain was so heavy it was pouring like a faucet, we ran for shelter... More

Exhausted and hungry, we stopped here after traveling from Naples to Rome and walking for hours in the city. We happened to arrive at Piazza Campo De' Fiori from a small side street and decided at once that we needed to sit and eat something. We picked this restaurant randomly. Once we sat down and ordered, we saw a sign... More

We visited this place because with elderly friend, who lived close to Campo De' Fiori and did not know the city, so landmarks were important for her. Usually we would never consider eating in one of these places that are located at the edges of the famous piazzas, ecxept for a coffeee or a drink. But now we needed lunch.... More

Great setting, good service and wonderful food. The Caprese was so good as was the bread, rabbit and fettuccine. Our waiter said everything is homemade and I believe him. We were looking forward to dessert but we were just too full. I would definitely return and recommend to others.

I don't even know where to begin. While I was lured by the perfect location and charming atmosphere I couldn't run away fast enough after I realized how rude the waiter was. He totally lacked courtesy. A family of 5 left after sitting there for about 15min or so when my mother and I sat at the table (It looked... More

It's important for us to reply to this opinion in order to explain our point of view to other customers. At the moment of your arrival the restaurant was still closed, but we offered anyway the possibility to sit in order to let people enjoy the sunset in Campo de' Fiori. The people you mentioned, have left the restaurant because... More

We went there for dinner, as it was recommended by our friend. The food was okay, the carbonara was not the best. Everything else was good.

Visited with the family for dinner (wife + 3 small children). Food was very, very simple, lacking taste. The tomato sauce of my gnocchi could have been shop-bought. Service wasn't also particularly friendly or efficient. Would not recommend or come back again.

The campo de fiori is a pretty touristy and frenetic spot, but this restaurant facing the square has great rustic-style Roman food, with an small area for outside seating. Friendly staff and great food. If you go for early lunch you can go shopping for great produce afterwards.

Good food and attentive staff in this busy square. The antipasto misto was a #1 hit. Pleasant terrace. Recommanded.

Really special rabbit with garlic/white wine sauce. No french fries, but the potatoes from the oven (al forno) are even better. Together with a good white housewine for €11,- per bottle a splendid choice on the Campo de Fiori.

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

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.
