“What's In A Name?”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

So many Italian restaurants in the US convey their food style with names that reference Naples, Palermo, Sorrento, and so on, which conjure up red table cloths, red sauce, meatballs and thin-but-well-covered pizza. But "Trastevere?" The "Left Bank" of Rome, growing ever more popular with both tourists and locals, home to an increasing number of popular, and even cutting edge, restaurants? We figured anyone who would choose that name for an Italian restaurant in Bavaria must be doing something interesting so in we went.

Turns out that it was more Sicily and Naples than Rome and not much that was Roman. But, man, was it good, with a menu that covered all the regular Italian dishes, well-prepared from fresh ingredients, served by pleasant waiters who were genuinely enthusiastic about the food. They took the time to explain this dish versus that, and to learn what we liked. Through a mix of my wife's good Spanish, my weak Italian, their pretty good English, we managed to put together a memorable dinner. We deferred on the dessert and instead finished off with coffee and a delicious homemade limoncello. When I praised it, another glass of limoncello was quickly brought to the table "on the house."

If you're in GaP, and if you want a break from German/Bavaria cooking, Trastevere awaits

“Felt at home”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Good restaurant with a wide selection of pizza and pasta. I've tried their specials from their a-la-carte menu and the food was excellent. Staff (most Italian) are welcoming and helpful.

“Great Food- Lovely People.”
Reviewed 15 August 2013

I have yet to be disappointed in a meal from Trastevere.. the food is fantastic and the staff is warm and friendly. As with most resturaunts in Germany, the service is slower than stateside, but that is the culture... sit down and stay a while.

Try the Bruschetta! it is the best!

“A dinner forgotten”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

Don't go here. We waited over 2 hours for a meal that never came, despite reminders. At least they had the courtesy not to bring a bill for the wine. We noticed other customers had been forgotten and two tables near us were brought the wrong pizza. A complete disaster !!! If you want to go hungry this is the place for you.
