We went here after reading stellar reviews about their cacio e pepe. The salty Parmesan cheese bowl was definitely the highlight of this dish, other than that we thought their cacio e pepe was too much cheese - it’s name is really butter and pepper......More

We really enjoyed our dinner in this traditional Italian restaurant. Staff was friendly and efficient and the food was tasty. We shared a big starter: grilled vegetables (peppers, courgettes, aubergines and endives) with a bit of olive oil. Then we tried their cacio e pepe...More

Traditional, nice trattoria in lively Trastevere. ‘Cacio & Pepe’ pasta, served in Parmesan dish, is simply amazing, one of the very best in Rome. Deep fried Baccalà and Zucchini are equally ‘hits’ of the place, with fresh and tasty ingredients, but come-in too deeply fried...More

Make a reservation to make sure you get a table and then go and enjoy feeling like a local. The Cacio e Pepe is served in a bowl made of Parmesan which add to the specialness of this simple dish. We also had the pasta...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
