Nice discovery

Good simple food. Menu only in Italian which is good compared to the turistic places further down in Trastavere. Do have the amatriciana and the cacio e pepe - excellent.

Family run intimate character restaurant. Delicious non fussy traditional dishes. Bread was perfect. Crusty and chewy and soft all at once. Mixed grilled veggies simple. Pecorino and Miel. Salami. Our pasta Perfectly cooked. Not overly sauced. Our family four enjoyed quiet pace of lunch. We will come again next trip.

We loved the anchovy and grilled vegetable appetizers, as well as the spaghetti cache e pepi. However, the oxtail stew while tasty was 90% bone, and the side dish of dark greens was very bland. Overall we enjoyed the food here and the above-mentioned appetizers are particularly special. But you do need to know what to order.

Had a wonderful dinner here. Loved the neighborhood and used a rick Steve recommendation to find this place. Sat inside and had a leisurely meal of pasta and wine and caprese salad. Good was excellent and the atmosphere was extremely comfortable. Would definitely visit again!

Service might be a bit grumpy but food is good quality and the wine menu is well selected (Alois Lageder Müller Thurgau was delicious). Pay attention to the day special - their chicken with peppers is serious. They don't offer out of season dishes which is positive. Good place for tasting pasta all'amatriciana & alla gricia (which are popular in... More

This place was a solid spot for lunch. However it was not the best meal we had in Rome. My pasta was decent, my wife's was better (she got the oxtail pasta). Overall it was a decent meal, located in a little alleyway not accessible to car traffic. Decent to good meal if you're in Trastevere

Generally speaking Trastevere is getting worst and worst. The once “poor” neighborhood of the city centre has become a tourist attraction, and dozens of bus are bringing tourists to visit the “real roman experience”. To find gems you have look carefully, and Lucia is a well hidden one. There are many good traditional dishes (vegetables are the key: cicoria ripassata,... More

If you want to dine surrounded by foreign tourists, served by distracted and overworked waiters, and spend a long time waiting for food from the limited menu, this is the place for you. I don't like any of the above. Too bad I have sweet memories of this place from many years ago.

We had a pleasant evening here, the food was simple but tasty, pasta with oxtail and chicken with peppers. We sat outside, which was pleasant, the service was good and the price reasonable and the house wine was cheap but good. Would recommend.

We had a pleasant experience at da Lucia. We were seated outside and noticed a good number of locals enjoying dinner at the trattoria. Always a good sign. The menu was a little limited, but I found the pasta to be tasty and the service to be of good quality. The prices were also good. Check it out if you... 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.
