Description: Rome is a city that offers a piece of history on every corner and Corsetti 1921 is a place that could tell much of the past, especially the Roman culinary tradition: it is a restaurant where the kitchen is a guarantee of quality and tradition. The friendliness and professionalism of the managers Mirta and Gaia Corsetti together with an accurate and elegant reinterpretation of space have made it a real landmark for all visitors to the Eternal City.

“Good food soured by atrocious service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 September 2013

So we came here as a group for dinner, and I will be short and blunt, seeing as I am a media personal and critic back home as a profession, please see below;
We ordered our wine, it took way too long to arrive!!
There was a restaurant staff employed to basically deliver the food to us and he had absolutely no idea about anything!!
Each meal came separately and the child with us got his last, by 15 minutes!!
The bill was wrong and the waiter still argued with us, almost accusing us of lying!!
After all that, we still got charged service fee of 21 euro!!
And we requested a cab, which arrived without us being notified by the waiter so when we left, the cabs meter already had 10 euro on it!!
If you have good food and terrible service it is still unfortunately a terrible experience that I will NOT be recommending to anything, neither writing about anytime soon,
Fix your operation!!

“Delicious food and good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2013

This restaurant looked like as much of a tourist trap as one can get in Trastevere, but the menu had appeal, so we tried it. It was a delight. The service and food were both good. My grilled fish and vegetables were excellent and myhusband enjoyed his pasta.

“a good place in trastevere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 April 2013

My daughters (10 and 13) visited this restaurant located inTrastevere, a bit further away from the lined up restaurant in this borough of Rome.

We had the 25€ menu including a primo and a secondo, including water and a glass of wine.

To be very honest, the pasta was just awesome. My daughters had 'orata' )dorades) that were covered by minced zucchini and potatoes. That was ok. I had boconcini. Frankly speaking, the meat was hard and nothing I received was appetizing. However the side orders were gorgeous : carciofi al giuda (fried artichoke), a bit too oily, but so nice.

The waiter was nice but a little too absent/busy.

Should the Secondi had been better, this would have been a gem in Trastevere, as value for money is well present.

“High quality and very creative way to present traditional dishes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 March 2013

Food is excellent and service too!
We have eaten very traditional roman cuisine presented in a very creative way.
Also we have been able to taste dishes completly new, like spaghetti with fresh small pachino tomatos and fried little vegetable. This dish resulted a winning choice, becouse light and digestable while extremly tasty. Ulisse
