It was a sparkling mix of guests from all over the World, a sparkling hostess, lots (and even more) of wine, some dancing on the tables… Fantastic place in the heart of Trastevere… But the promised/expected secrets of the precious Roman cuisine "were absent"! So...More

We had great food in Rome. This was our best eating experience. We arrived an hour early and explored the streets in this neighborhood. Love this area!! Just such a great feel and so different than the ancient city. At 755, we went in. This...More

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

Barbara only cooks on certain days. This is not a restaurant open every night. Try being flexible with your dates. Definitely worth doing. Great night, our best night in Rome
