This is my friend’s local in Rome and we always sit here for a few hours when we are there. It is literally only 50 metres at most from Santa Maria de Trastevere and some very expensive food and drink but also close to the fantastic Da Augusto restaurant. A big bottle of Peroni or Morreti is only 2.50 Euros and the home-made ice cream is lovely. The place is full of character and where you will definitely not see the dolce vita. It is very bohemian to say the least and very 1950's. When we were there last Friday Vogue was using it for a fashion shoot. One of my favourites in Rome.

Good location with a great buzz. Drink was very cheap but good. We were there on a Thursday night after dinner and the place was very busy with a great atmosphere. A nice place to hang out.

I would consider this pub as the cheapest fun pub ever existed in Trastevere area! an amazing place to hangout with friends, this place is Crowded in weekend, for anyone who wants to have a drink (Mostly different beers) and not spending too much money!
BAR San Callisto is an old pub and all locals from Trastevere mostly youths come here to have a chat and drink something during the weekend
it has enough space inside the pub to seat and enjoy your time with friends specially during winter to warm up as well even thou it wouldn't be so cold in Rome, I would definitely recommend this pub to Budget travellers.
I come here once in a while to have drinks around midnight, never had anything else so I can't comment on food or anything and i don't even know if if they serve food here or not,

So cheap, friendly staff, always bustling at any time. Full of locals throughout the day drinking coffee or beers in the afternoon/evening, then gets busier at night with tourists. A gem!

This is a great bar in Trastevere. Depending on the time of day, you will find a different crowd here. You can grab a coffee and a freshly baked crosspoint in the morning, or you can come by on a Saturday night and it transforms into a lively bar. The prices are VERY good value. Beer and wine is particularly cheap! They also do ice cream for a very fair price of 1.50euro - and it's tasty!

San Calisto is really great with a good atmosphere and always busy with different kinds of people!
