Nice place and good food, but nothing special or memorable compared to their Roman restaurants. Simple, rustic and good

It was my third visit to Roma and the best restaurant so far. The staff were friendly and the food were a very good. I had mushroom&chestnuts soup for lunch and rabbit for dinner. The wine was excellent we had Abbazia Di Novacella Lagrein 2015. Highly recommended.

I've been to Rome several times, and I've gone to many of the restaurants recommended by various guidebooks. This is by far my favorite. My daughter, when hearing we were going back to Rome, teared up thinking about getting to go to this restaurant again. My sentiments exactly.

The food was amazing and authentic. The staff were friendly yet made a point of trying to help ya say things in Italian. The atmosphere was great. This restaurant is well worth the walk over the river. The area itself is a lovely water of cobbled streets and piazzas. Z

The ambiance is very authentic Trasteverino, food the best, consistent and at a good price. It has been my first stop when I visited Rome over the last 50 years. i ate there weekly when I was a resident of Rome over a 7 year period The carbonara and bucatini alla matriciana are my favorites dishes. Buon appetito, Tommaso Gambino

So that's a dangerous oversell and am definitely setting expectations high...but I have lived in Italy for 18 years and the Fettucine (don't remember the name but they had onions, pancetta, pecorino and red pepper) that I had here were seriously the best I can remember eating. Also, hands down the best tiramisù I've ever eaten in my life. It's... 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.
