We liked the local feel and eating outside. Food was average. The service was slow and not attentive.

This restaurant is placed in a side street in Trastevere, away from the most busy touristy bustle of Tastevere. They have tables on the street, which is complete with laundry hanging from the windows and lost of parked scooters. The food is simple, but very well prepared. The menu is quite small compared to other restaurants in Rome, but I... More

Home made food of the rustic simple variety. Beef stew very tasty like your mother might make. Oxtail a bit fatty. Steak was fine. Tripe was, well, tripe. Vegetables were cold which I think was intentional, so be warned if that's not to your taste. Pana cotta excellent and wine very palatable.

We headed to trattoria du Lucia at the recommendation of Rick Steeves. It was 830. All the tables outside had the chairs tipped in and there were plenty of tables vacant inside. One was occupied. The person greeting us was curt and offered a table to share with two people already seated and eating. He offered no explanation and was... More

This is a great place. I am from Rome, but now I live in the US, in Boston. Whenever I am back to Rome, I am happy to come to Lucia. It is a Roman trattoria, which serves typical Roman food. Roman food tends to be heavy, but it is excellent. I read some people complain that the street is... More

What a disgrace. Just a couple of mentions in (unqualified) blogs and this has changed from a decent (not great!) restaurant into a total tourist trap. Including overpriced and average food and most importantly very arrogant service. There are are countless better options in Trastevere so stay clear of this.

We had been recommended this by a local and also the Guardian review. Three of the party of 4 ordered rabbit but I think they must have tried to stretch the last few portions because we all got bony bits of back. What was there was very tasty

We had very average meal..just like we could have anywhere else to be honest. Tiramisu was nice but not very outstanding. It was a little bit disappointed.

Unfortunately, despite being a regular traveler to Italy, I made a rookie mistake and did not review TA before eating at this restaurant. A big mistake. With only 2 days in Rome at the and of a wonderful 3 weeks in Italia, I felt cheated by the meal I suffered through at this place. It's currently rated 2,614 out of... More

I found out about this restaurant 3 years ago from Budget Travel via an article titled Eat like a local Roman. Google it. Even a local recommended this place again this year and we decided to try it again. We ordered the cheese plate, house red wine, and each ordered a pasta. We were very happy with our choices and...
