Both the food and the service were great. We went to eat out twice a day in 5 days and this one was the best we found. If you are looking for a nice little place with chill music I can only recommend it. The waitress is a real "Mamma" and she takes care of you. :) I have to... More

Strolled by the menu and liked what I saw in both selection and price. Went inside and was warmly treated by the server. Had a delicious plate of spaghetti carabonara. Pasta was perfectly cooked, the sauce and meat was delicious. Never felt rushed, would go back again.

We picked this restaurant at random walking through Trastevere streets. The pasta was horrible, felt like something you'd taste in a frozen-food. Very disappointed.

La Canonica offers good food and a great atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and attentive, although I must agree with previous reviews who claims that it all feels very rushed. All in all, a good atmosphere!

Picked this restaurant at random walking through Trastevere. I ordered the house made gnocchi with creamed zucchini and it was amazing. The gnocchi were like little clouds of flavor and the sauce was a perfect complement to the delicate pasta. I will recall it fondly until my next visit to Rome.

Having had a very good meal at La Canonica, we chose to celebrate our wedding anniversary there. The friendly and service-minded staff really made it a memorable evening! We recommend the restaurant with its good food and wine, and the friendly athmosphere

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
