Arrived at 3.30pm, the owner said he’s closed, I jokingly said but I’m hungry, he said he didn’t care, I guess he’d made his money for today!

Great (and affordable!) neighborhood restaurant in Trastevere. The primi piatti are phenomenal and the secondi were great too. Nice outdoor seating and the place is run by fun and engaging people. Highly recommended.

If you’re visiting Rome, for sure check this place out. Great authentic Italian food at half the price as across the river.

The food was amazing and the service was good. I had the "Coda alla Romana" Oxtail, and I have to say, it is the best I have had. The food was fresh, and reasonably priced too. It is a small but cosy, and I will...More

Restaurant with open patio overlooking one of the small squares in Trastevere. We arrived just before they opened and 3 other tables were waiting with us; reservations recommended.

This popular Osteria deserves a good review. First of all, do make reservations. They open for dinner at 7:30, and by 8 pm, the place is full, and potential customers get turned away. The menu is full of satisfying pasta dishes. The appetizers are pleasantly...More

For starters, the food was amazing. The pasta was delicious and seemed homemade and the zucchini flowers were also superb. However, we were not very happy because we went to pay with a card (we had seen several other people doing this) and the person...More

Italian food is generally pretty good, but this place is even better. Spending 3 weeks in Rome, we went to this restaurant at least 5 times. Given I've only been to maybe 2 restaurants in Rome more than one (in maybe 20 visits), that's saying...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.
