We saw many good reviews about this restaurant but we're extremely disappointed. We ate four different dishes and they were all bad. Tasteless meet, the sauce caccio e Pepe did not taste as such and the tagliatelle were overcooked! No real Italian cuisine serves overcooked...More

I got the Amatriciana and it was the best bowl of pasta I've ever eaten. I eat a lot of pasta so that's a big statement, but true. My girlfriend got the Carbonara which was also great. Lovely restaurant and waiters too.

Pasta just like Nonna made it! Fresh pasta, simple but very tasty flavours beautifully cooked. Great service. We went for lunch which was a very good idea because when we walked past in the evening there was a queue of people waiting! Very reasonable too...More

The restaurant is in the heart of Trastevere, where you breathe the pure atmosphere of Rome; the food is traditional and good; if you book in advance you will be sure to find a table. People are nice and welcoming; when we went there probably...More

The rental company we rented our apartment through recommended this restaurant. We had to wait 20 minutes to get a table, which is always a good sign. The staff were great - funny and helpful. After a superb meal, I had to sit on the...More

Myself and my boyfriend visited this restaurant for lunch in the middle of June. The restaurant was fairly quiet at this time and we received excellent service. The red wine was fantastic, as was the caprese salad we both had for a starter, and the...More

Staying for a few days in Rome, we were looking forward to returning here and if anything, it was better than before... Just over the Ponte Sisto, keep to the right of the piazza and follow the street around to the right. Restaurant is right...More

I went there for the tonarelli cacio e pepe and it was that best pasta I have ever eaten. The environment is laid back and cosy and the staff loves to play along. The prices are extremely affordable and it is a really nice place...More

Stopped for lunch on a sunday following a recommendation and so glad we did! The place was completely full mostly with locals. Had some very good food for very reasonable prices. (40 euros for 2 pastas, 2 desserts, half litre wine and water) Definitely worth...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

In Rome most restaurants are in walking distance from each other. Suggest you have a look and if they don't just walk to the next one.
