La Fontana di Venere La Fontana di Venere - Roma

La Fontana di Venere

Cute restaurant located in a historical building in the center of Rome, steps away from the Trevi Fountain, where you can have authentic Roman cuisine.

What we love
  • Homemade gnocchi with bolognese sauce or pesto genovese
  • The excellent fettuccini with brocoli and pecorino cheese, or “Venere” style with pistachio pesto, shrimps and cherry tomatoes
  • The classic Roman saltimbocca and lamb cutlets
  • Among the artisanal desserts, try the Pastiera (cake made with ricotta cheese), served all year round
  • Homemade limoncello with lemons from the Amalfi Coast
What to know
  • The name of the restaurant refers to the Roman goddess Venus; hence, you can admire a statue of her by Christophe Gabriel Allegrain inside the restaurant
  • The wine lists boasts the best labels of Italian wineries
  • There is an interesting selection of soft pizza, without cornice, a typical Roman style
  • Excellent fish dishes, such as La Padellata Venere, a mixed seafood dish with toast
  • The restaurant is open 7 days a week
