Via Margutta, Rome
(4.2/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Via Margutta is a narrow street in the centre of Rome, near Piazza del Popolo, accessible from Via del Babuino in the ancient Campo Marzio neighborhood also known as "the foreigner's quarter". Mount Pincio is nearby. Via Margutta originally was home to modest craftsmen, workshops and stables, but now hosts many art galleries and fashionable restaurants.After the film Roman Holiday became popular, Via Margutta developed into an exclusive neighborhood, where various famous people lived, such as film director Federico Fellini. From the north the area can be reached from Via Cassia or Flaminia, passing then through Piazzale Flaminio, and through the city door in the wall that leads to Piazza del Popolo. From this point one walks several metres to the left of Flaminio Obelisk towards Via del Babuino, and on the left there is an alley that leads to Via Margutta.From Piazza di Spagna, one can take via del Babbuino, turn right on via Albert, and via Margutta will be on the left.Etymology and historyThe name probably originates from the word "Marisgutia", meaning "Sea Drop", a gentle euphemism for a dirty stream that came down from the hill of the villa of the Pincii, used like a natural Roman Cloaca. Via Margutta was behind the palaces of Via del Babuino (Babboon road), where warehouses and stables were found.

  • Little street in the Centre of Rome, in the Campus Martius known for having hosted many artists, actors, directors and artists (Picasso, De Chirico, Fellini, Magnani). Today is full of small shops, art galleries, antique shops and eateries. Worth a stroll and immerse themselves in the artistic appeal of Rome from piazza del popolo in piazza of Spain! Viva Rome! Long live Italy!

  • Via Margutta is a small street in the Centre of Rome, on the slopes of Mount Pincio. Formerly housed craft workshops and stables, while now houses art galleries and trendy restaurants. She became famous in the 1950s for the film Roman holiday. If you pass by there let us go jump

  • Delicious, flavors that are incredible. Service was excellent and allowed plenty of time to enjoy your course before rushing you to the next... not slow, paced correctly.
  • Nice decor but extremely poor service and disappointing food. Staff are nice enough but incredibly slow, and the food was just abysmal. Honestly, some of the worst food I've received in Rome.
  • This place is a Vegan Vegetarian haven .However even non Vegan or Vegetarian have a lot to eat in their buffet. You through a degree to do so.As there are no English menus, the waiter will go through a list of what you can and can not do at the buffet.You take that I will bring this, do not take that etc.No idea what she wanted from us. We filled our plates ONCE ( not allowed to go back).Then when we finished she asked us about the salad that we did not take...no idea again what this all was about .She brought us desserts.However she only served us each time after we called upon her ...No idea why she deserted us, Any how-Good food, nice place, good value for money 15 euro each.
  • I have just loved it, from the environment, the staff, the plates and the compliment of the chef. Amazing 11 stars, should be a Michelin star place.
  • So nice to find a vegetarian restaurant. The service was good and the food delicious. For a set price of 15 euros you get soup, a buffet main course and a dessert. The food was excellent with plenty of choice. Also a good place for vegans.
