Went for a stroll in The Trastevere and had dinner here. Thanks to Gennaro and staff for a wonderful evening. Loved the atmosphere and the music also.

We wandered across this small restaurant in Trastevere and sat outside. The service was great and the food amazing. They offered to bring us an assorted menu of local foods and champagne, wine and Limoncello with Tiramisu for dessert. Awesome!

Wonderful food, wonderful staff and excellent value for money. Thank you to Gennaro and his team for making our 10th wedding anniversary extra special. We visited 3 times during our 4 day short break and everytime the food and service was outstanding.

This is the best food that we ate in Italy on our 15 day trip! We did not try the seafood, but the meat sauce and vodka sauce were delicious.

We visited Il Vicolo several times during our family trip in Rome. They never disappointed us. They noticed us always and welcome us friendly every time. Food (pasta, pizza and dessert) was more than brilliant. We enjoyed our stay every night. Greetings to our waiters,...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
