We were seated quickly, but then we had to wait for a very long time before anyone came to serve us. Once we placed our order, it seemed like that was the extent of the service we'd receive. Nobody came to ask if everything was OK. They just seemed to do the bare minimum and were, in general, inattentive. The... More

We visited here our first evening in Rome for a light dinner. We started with a bottle of red vine and some water. We were served outside on the street which is unique and added to the atmosphere of being in Rome. We both chose a small antipasto which was very fresh and flavorable. We followed with a pasta course... More

So: you're hot, tired, hungry and lost. You need a beer and lunch. Fortunately, Rome is probably the only city on earth where you could chance your arm and end up eating a fantastic meal. Capo's one of those functional Roman trattoria that exemplifies what 'lunch' and 'dinner' (so good, we actually went back a couple of days later!) should... More

No staff out the front or picture menu. Gorgeous food & atmosphere. We asked for recommendations & our waiter was spot on . Dessert buffet. Old pictures on the walls added to ambience.

Fantastic the "democratic rigatoni" (cheese and a little quantity of sausage). Also I tasted the "Agnello allo scottadito" and salad. Amazing location

Rustic low beamed ceiling and heavily painted walls. The tables outside are next to the road so less pleasant. Great pasta Bucatini all'amatriciana with bacon, pecorino and chili. fresh asparagus and insalata mista. Millefoglie for desert. Everything was fresh and delicious. EUR 20

This is a great local restaurant in Trastevere. Super fresh and great local dishes. This is the second time that I have come here and it has been amazing each time. Try the local Trippa that is excellent and the pasta dishes and risotto are perfect!

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere
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.
