Small Luxury Bed & Breakfast is located in a strategic location in the middle of a plaza from which streets leading to the main attractions of Rome.
Just a few steps you find pharmacy, bars, restaurants and all essential services.
Enjoy good food in Rome is easy but it is also easy to run into tourist restaurants that eventually leave a bitter taste with salty accounts.
For our guests we have selected a range of restaurants that we go often as well and we feel safe to recommend.
To taste the real Roman cuisine, our advice is Osteria Zi Umberto in Trastevere and Osteria da Fortunata Campo de Fiori.
For a quick lunch or snack Insalata Ricca right on Piazza Risorgimento and Ted a few steps from the B & B where they make exceptional dishes American style.
If you want something more refined and where fish is the star you can not go by Benito in Borgo Pio a few meters from the B & B, very few tables for a unique and sought after.
You choose what you want to eat and we think to book the table!
Backpackers, comfortable shoes and GO to discovery the ancient Rome!
