We have been to this restaurant now numerous times over the last 30 years. The last visit was 14 years ago and we were keen to see if it had changed. It hasn’t, it is still the same great restaurant that we remembered. The fried...More

Had dinner last night at this restaurant in Rome. It is truly a first class operation. Everything was immaculate, the food was delicious, the waiters were formally dressed in white jackets and ties and the food incredible. It is a little on the pricey side,...More

If you like Roman traditional cooking this is a restaurant to try. It was much better 10 or 15 years ago but carciofi alla giudia and pasta cacio and pepe and fettuccine alla carbonara are still properly done. A bit too touristic now for my...More

Considering the cost, we expected more from Piperno. The food was good, but not something we'd want twice. I believe the restaurant has an outdoor terrace, but as it was pouring rain when we got there, we did not see it. The service was adequate,...More

I reserved for lunch here on a Sunday afternoon, which turned out to be a great time to go! All of the tables were reserved with little cards, but it seemed to be completely filled with Italian families out for their Sunday meal. The restaurant...More

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

Hi Barb S. As other Trip Advisors have suggested, its a fair distance/walk from St. Peters and i would personally take a taxi. Re the language...we had absolutely no trouble in conversing with our waiter.
