Top Places To Eat Near Campo de’ Fiori
Campo de’ Fiori is arguably Rome’s best square for a drink but it can be hit or miss when it comes to food. Many of the restaurants are touristy in the square, but they come with ample outdoor seating and decent food at night. It’s definitely better quality for the price than nearby Piazza Navona.
Once you’ve hit all the top attractions in Campo, it’ll be time to take a break to explore Rome’s food and wine. In this list, we’ve curated the best restaurants in Campo de’ Fiori to enjoy a meal and the atmosphere of the Eternal City.

€ | Casual and Quick | Kid Friendly | Fresh Homemade Pasta
Looking for a quick but super tasty lunch option near Campo dei Fiori or Castel Sant’Angelo? This is it. You’ll get really tasty Roman comfort food here. Expect traditional dishes and some creative items you won’t see at your average trattoria. All their pasta is fresh and homemade—hence their name Pastificio.
This gem should definitely be on your radar if you want to impress your group with your local knowledge. Sometimes fancy is the way to go but in Rome, homestyle food is just as impressive.
It’s on a rather famous street, Via dei Banchi Vecchi, which is a cool road with tons of great shops and places to eat amidst the tourist traps surrounding it.
Address: Via dei Banchi Vecchi, 48
€ | Casual and Quick | Kid Friendly | Outdoor Seating | Great Beer
If you don’t know what a suppli is, you can thank me later. It’s the go-to energy street food snack of Rome, and even Italy. Kind of like a PowerBar but with fried rice and mozzarella instead of whatever they put in PowerBars.
This place is pretty cheap and really cool. There are little tables where you can grab a quick suppli, beer, glass of wine, or lasagna dish. You won’t write home about it, but if you’re in the area and approaching hangry, you’ll love it and probably revisit this hole in the wall.
Address: via dei Banchi Vecchi 143

I Sofà Bar Restaurant and Roof Terrace
€€€ | Rooftop Dining | Great View
Located on top of Hotel Indigo, Sofà Bar Restaurant is simply cool. They have a great rooftop terrace with tons of seating and it’s just high enough that you’ll get a beautiful view of a sea of terracotta roofs—something the average tourist never gets to see. The food and prices are great (volume-wise). Come to this cool place to impress your date or travel companion.
Address: Via Giulia 62
€€ | Casual Napoletano | Fresh Seafood | Kid Friendly
Osteria Orbitelli has become my new favorite restaurant in Rome. That is tough to say because this is a Napoletano seafood restaurant. That said, it’s really good.
My recommendation is to tell them you like seafood and you want to eat well. Let them choose on your behalf. You shouldn’t pay much more than €35 a person and you’ll eat a lot. It’s a family-run restaurant, like most in Rome, and the father apparently drives to Naples every day to pick up what he says is the freshest seafood on Earth.
That is about a five-hour round trip but it’s a very Italian thing to do. Good Italian cooking isn’t about tricks or even butter. It’s about using the best and freshest ingredients possible. That’s what you’ll get here.
Address: Vicolo Orbitelli, 13
€€€€ | Contemporary Roman | Outdoor Patio | Seafood
What a restaurant! Assunta Madre sits on Via Giulia, arguably Rome’s most prestigious street and loved by locals. It’s in the center but, somehow, always quiet. The restaurant, which serves mostly seafood, is known for its consistently fresh array of fish displayed in the doorway.
Will you find tourists here? Nope. What you will find is amazing seafood and Rome’s top elites dining here nightly. Favorited by stars like Francesco Totti and Italian movie stars and singers, they go for the seafood and the ambience.
You could easily spend €150 per person if you start drinking great wine and eating oysters, but you also could have a nice meal for €50-€60 here. If you’re traveling with a group of fun people with some change to spare, this is the place.
Address: Via Giulia, 14
€€ – €€€ | Upscale Gourmet | Restaurant and Bar
In the summer, Giulia restaurant opens up to the end of Via Giulia. The bar is beautiful, they have excellent reviews online, and prices appear to be pretty reasonable. Stop by for a drink around 6-ish and you’ll probably stay for dinner.
You can dress up or go casual. It’s right on the border with Trastevere on the Campo de’ Fiori side of the river, mere steps from Ponte Sisto. One of the more upscale restaurants in Campo de’ Fiori, go for the environment and stay for the food.
Address: Lungotevere dei Tebaldi 4

€ | Old School Italian | Kid Friendly | Best Baccalà
If you’re looking for traditional, old-school, and authentic, Dar Filettaro is the spot. We even make a stop here on our Rome food tour. You may walk in and say, “These guys really try hard to make this place look old-school Italian!” Trust me, they don’t—it comes naturally.
They make arguably the best baccalà in the center of Rome, if not the entire city. While they do have a lot of other great dishes, the baccalà is what you should go for. If you want a quick meal and a very Roman experience, this is it.
Address: Largo dei Librari, 88
Antico Forno Roscioli
€ | Casual | Kid Friendly | Outdoor Barrels | Pizza Rossa
This is one of those things you simply have to do when in Rome: Go to Roscioli and get pizza rossa. Apparently, the place opened up in the 1820s as a bread shop and now it’s the most famous place in the center. We also hit this stop on our Rome food tour.
They make a simple dish taste really good, which is why it made our list of best restaurants near Campo de’ Fiori. Pizza rossa has become a big part of Roman and Italian culture. Originally from Naples, don’t leave Rome without coming here to try it.
Address: Via dei Chiavari, 34
€ | Coffee and Dessert | Kid Friendly | Tiramisu Bar
This little takeout dessert shop is trying to take a run at Pompi for the best tiramisu in Rome and it is doing pretty well. The name ZUM sounds like something from the far east, but don’t be caught off guard. It stands for Zucchero, Uva, and Mascarpone (sugar, egg, and mascarpone), which are the three foundational ingredients in great tiramisù
In all fairness, the desserts are less traditional and more innovative. They have lots of fantastic pastries here but come for a coffee and great tiramisu. There’s a tiramisu bar and a few seats where you can sit down and enjoy your dessert before you get back on the road.
Address: Piazza del Teatro di Pompeo, 20
Need to Know About Dining in Rome
Reservations: You can make reservations and it’ll probably work, but most inexpensive restaurants treat reservations loosely due to the number of no-shows. Ask for a glass of wine while you wait. This doesn’t normally apply to restaurants in the €€€ level.
Service: Don’t get up in arms if it takes a while for the waiter to come over or if you can’t get their attention. Enjoy your time—you’re on vacation! This also doesn’t normally apply to restaurants in the €€€ level.
Tipping: A few euros per person is great. If you want to give 10-20%, be our guest but it’s not necessary. That said, everyone likes more money.
