Great meal without breaking the pocket

We were strolling at Trastevere and saw this cute restaurant. It was one the best meals in Rome so far. Everything we ordered was delicious, the pizza, the gnocchetti. The house red wine was good too as well as the espresso coffee. Finally, the price very reasonable. I'll be back

We went to this restaurant twice and sat outside once and inside once. We had the tourist menu which was very good I think it was 12 euros and it was three courses. The second time we went we sat inside and ate off the main menu which was also very good. You should really book as it is only... More

Absolutely classic tourist trap. Restaurant possibly in antiquity was good, and so is much frequented. That's the past. The food was absolutely the worst I've seen and ate in Rome .

Place was pretty busy, but we ran into a couple of friends before hand and even with a party of six we were seated relatively quickly. I had the seafood pasta which was incredible (even for a seafood critic) and it was also incredible cheap (I think ~8 Euros), the house red wine was decent, and the staff was very... More

Perfect place to eat. Very reasonable prices. Delicious food. Although not very easy to reach, no metro stations around.

First chosen because of the great prices shown on menu, but also because of many locals going there (usually a good sign). The pasta and the salads were really good, nice portions and tasty. The service is efficient and fast (donc expect to spend hours), we were installed a the terrace which looked as the best served area. We were... More

We were walking in Trastevere, and a friend recommended the place. We went there to check on the place and the menu, and we decided to try the place. The service is pretty normal for italian standards, it may sound to some people, but it is what it is. Actually, our server was very helpful. My ordered from the Tourist... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood 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.
