In our rush to grab a bite to eat after arriving in the Travestere district we chose this place. Service was slow and servers all looked like they would rather be somewhere else. Staffing was inadequate for the 70 plus patrons - 1 host, 2...More

We went there looking for a light dinner/aperitivo and got what we wanted. It was a little packed, but in Trastevere at night that's to be expected. We took a glass of the local wine, a full tray of coldcuts, cheeses, small fried stuff on...More

The staff was really relaxed but the service was quick and the food was good. They have house wine at a good price. It is located in a square so it's great to seat outside and enjoy a hot summer night.

You get what you pay for. Starting at 5 euros for a large basic pizza and 5.50 euros for a basic pasta. We enjoyed it and went back 2 nights due to the convenience and value for money. It's no fancy or romantic restaurant, but...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
