Located on the Piazza Fiammetta, 30m from Piazza Navona, this restaurant is a fabulous Italian restaurant with a largely Italian clientelle. Very unprepossessing at first glance, no haranging waiter outside, no menu in mutiple languages and photos, just a simple A4 printed Italian menu on display at the entrance which is changed daily as the menu is dependent upon the produce available that day. We were made very welcome and returned virtually everyday, and the waiters were happy to translate the menu with meals having 5, 6 or even 7 courses. The service is very relaxed and unhurried and meals can last up to 3hrs. Highly recommended.
Favorite Dish: The food is wonderful, not fancy, just typically Roman, I thoroughly recommend everything especially the veal, the pizza which is cooked to order in the oven inside the restaurant, and the pannacotta with wild strawberries.
When visiting the remarkable museum of the Palazzo Altemps, a few hundred meters north of Piazza Navona, one might look for a not too touristy restaurant what is not easy to find in this area.
After looking at some restaurants with terraces typically for tourists we found on the ground floor of the building where is located the Hotel Genio, behind the corner, a trattoria independent of this hotel.
No waiter was posted outside to attract tourists and from the carte we could see they served wine from the house at normal prices for Italy. So we decided to have a look inside.
The waiter as well as the clients at the tables spoke Italian and indeed Trattoria Pizzeria Fiammetta appeared to be a normal Roman restaurant, with normal Italian food and wine at normal Italian prices. Furthermore as the food was good, the service kind, we had a quite pleasant lunch and will return there if we are again in that area.
