A hidden treasure in Trastevere

We were looking for real and tasty Roman Food and we found it here. Small menu. The pastas are simple and amazing. For the "secondo piatto" try the ox tail (typical roman dish). After that, don't forget to go bar hopping for good chianti in the numerous bars in Trastevere. We had a wonderful... read more

We were looking for a nice , quite place in Trastevere and we found it with this restaurant, hidden away in a corner. You can hear the neighbors talking while you are eating outside. Great pasta and good service. Reservations a must as it fills up after 8 pm.

This small backstreet trattoria founded in 1938 made headlines in the Italian and international press since the 1980s and is a favourite among locals and tourists alike. It’s not quite easy to find in the maze of cobbled streets of Trastevere, yet located in one of the most spectacular areas of the neighbourhood’s old village, just a short stroll from... More

we had a beefstaek and some bread. the restaurant has a good score on tripadvisor and i really don't know why. in my humble opinion it is just a tourist restaurant. if you want something special look further in Trastevere. because there are a couple of "pearls" in this area.

We ordered some different dishes which we asked to get served in a certain order. The waiter misunderstood us, which meant we weren't eating at the same time (one of us got antipasti alone, then both pasta at the same time and then 1 main course alone) a bit annoying. But the food was fantastic - the rabbit which was... More

We visited Da Lucia 16 years ago for lunch and sought it out on our first night in Rome when introducing our teenagers to Italy. Despite all the negative reports about service and backrooms, our treatment was wonderful. The Indian waiter could not have been more attentive, friendly or helpful and spoke perfect English. The food was wonderful. The ambiance... More

This is a great, no frills, roman cuisine neighbourhood restaurant. We arrived without a reservation for Sunday lunch - thank goodness we were early as the place filled up rapidly, mainly with Italians, most of whom seemed to know the owners (generally a good sign). The menu is short, with a lean to roman classics. Again good. Star antipasta was... More

At here with the kids for a late lunch. It was ok, but just average. The tomato sauce tested like it came from a can. Just not great.

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.
