This is one of the places you can be sure to eat authentical roman specialities. Recommended by tourists and local, booking in advance is a must as the space is small and capacity limited. Speciality is of course pasta and mainly the "cacio e pepe" spaghettis. The tiramisu we ordered here was one of the best we've ever tried!

We went there for dinner on our first night in Rome in a group of four and we really enjoy all the dishs we shared. The only thing we didn't really like was that they charged us 3€ for each jar of "tap" water.

Came here for New Years Eve - they had a set menu and the food was very good. It definitely felt like more of a local place than a tourist restaurant.

"Is it possible for 8 people ?" Big jo was a very good waiter, very sympathetic. He always found us a place with a little drink when we are waiting our place and with good humor. Only good memories with big Jo. Thanks you. We are coming soon. 8 french people.

The food is not so good, despite the long queue of waiting. At the end of my meal they put me through an embarrassing situation: they had not controlled things well and when I was leaving they followed me down the street accusing me of not having paid the bill. I had to go back to the restaurant and find... More

I went to this restaurant two times in my Rome trip. They have a very good home red wine, I strongly recommend it. They serve olive oil and bread as an antipasto before the main food which are I think more delicious than the main food. We ordered pizza which is in average taste for Rome standards. The last thing... More

Staying in Trastavere is such a treat but all the better for some great local trattorias. The carbonara is outstanding as was the local delicacy Trippa Romana. Service is much better than average and the waiter was happy to serve us a glass of Prosecco while we waited for our table to be cleared.

This place is fantastic! One of my favorite lasagnas in all of Rome. The Amatriciana is wonderful as well. For an appetizer I would recommend sticking to bruschetta with tomatoes and a mixed salad if you want some veggies. House red is good and for a good price. The prices are very reasonable; my wife and I usually pay around... More

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.
