We turned up without a booking in a torrential rainstorm. Turned out this local restaurant in a suburb of Rome was very popular and fully booked. Despite this the owner and staff managed to make room for us and conjoured up a table for two. Terrific traditional food served with super efficient service despite every table being occupied. They managed... More

We went there for dinner based on several recommendations... First of all the place is completely outside the beautiful city center, located in a residential area without any flair. Why do you want to spend money for a 15 minute taxi ride to this place if there are so many excellent restaurants in the center? Service was unfriendly, apparently they... More

This restaurant is in a residential area but is very easy to reach via the #7 tram. It's about 100 feet from the south end of the line at Casaletto. We shared a large starter of fried gnocchi over cacio-pepe sauce, tonarelli-bacala pasta, involtini Romana (rolled braised beef), and grilled vegetables. Superb. These dishes, plus a liter of house red... More

It is a simple and familiar restaurant, a little bit far from the touristic áreas, but it is worth a detour. We had an amazing meal, with perfect "Polpette di Bollito", Spaghetti alle Vongole, Fettuccine com Cozze, Baccala ala Romana and a very good wine Ribolla Gialla Terpin. I would like to eat there more often...

Recommended by the trusty old Mario Batali... and what a place. its the last stop on Tram 8 or on one of the far stops on Bus H. The tram is a better option to get there. This is not your traditional trattoria. It is in a larger space and really sleek, without being fine dining. Everything from the fried... More

My husband and I eat at Da Ceaare last night and were some what disappointed. After reading reviews in Savier and Maria Batalli calling it one of the best trattorias in Rome and almost reading a great review from Katie Perla's Rome food blog we were expecting big things. To start the room is a large rather bland over light... More

Top Italian restaurant with incredible flavours. Away from the tourist traps, but easy to reach with tram 8, you can find this gem. Want to try real Italian food, visit this place!! You won't be dissapointed. Good value for money as well.

What a wee gem of a place. We ate Tuesday 19 April 2016 for evening meal and mainly picked it as the menu accommodated for the 7 year old. The food was delicious and well portioned. My only comment and is my own fault is that my steak came on its own. Had to order a side. Very reasonable bill.

Fantastic family run trattoria outside the central core zone. Taxi or public transport are a must as is a reservation booked a bit in advance, but you will be rewarded for the effort. Very few tourists, almost all locals from the neighborhood. Truly eating with the Romans! All the classics, done superbly. Excellent wine list!

I came here due to proximity to my Hotel and good reviews by trip advisor. Did had a very nice experience. You should come to have a nice reception, good food and to be in a nice environment. Would come again easily. Followed all suggestions from the cameriere and did not regret.
