Great service, hidden away in side street close to Piazza Navona. Service with a smile. Excellent presentation. Varied choice...very tasty pasta dishes, meat and fish choice also a delight to choose from. As for desserts.....let's not go there. Way too sinful.

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
