Il ritorno di Da Lucia

Having been to Da Lucia in the spring, we wanted to return today since we had great memories. One of those memories revolved around the incredible panna cotta and we were equally please on this visit. I do not know what they do that is different but the Da Lucia version of Panna Cotta is by far... read more

Our friend who had been here on a prior visit took us here for dinner and raved what a great experience she had last time. Tonight she took us here for us to celebrate our other friends birthday. When we arrived we were greeted by the host who asked if we has reservations. We did not, as a result they... More

Order the white wine that the trattoria serves in 1/2 lt jar and you won't forget the taste for days! I don't exaggerate...The food is excellent. I ordered the "trippa a la romana" (cow's stomach with tomato sauce and cheese),which is a traditional food in Italy, and I really enjoyed it!

Food was good and very tastefull. Only downside is that we did not get that "homely" feeling, as we did at other restaurants we went to.

Excellent multi-generational family run restaurant located in the Trastevere area of Roma is a great choice if you seek something away from the tourist options where most of the tables were occupied by locals. Late on a Sunday evening, we had to wait to be seated. My wife ordered the oxtails which was prepared differently from how my wife's family... More

This place is amazing! Off the beaten path so still hidden from most tourists, you will find authentic Roman food here with a classic Italian atmosphere

This restaurant is off the beaten path a little bit, which to me makes it more fun. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from in Trastevere, but this seems to have more of a local feel to it as a result. Very small, cozy main dining room, and too cold to have outside service this time of year. Service... More

We visited following Andy from Notts review comment, "Pizza to die for" as we set our hearts on authentic Italian pizza for this evening, but not a pizza to be seen on the menu! Not sure where Andy ate, but it couldn't have been at Trattoria da Lucia!? Overall a disappointing and very limited menu, which was ok, but nothing... More

This restaurant is in a lovely secluded, residential area. We thought this meant it would be full of local residents, but on a Friday night, there seemed to none there. In fact, at 7.30, when the restaurant opened, there was no-one there at all. We thought this must be a bad omen. We came back about an hour later, when... More

If your in the Trastevere area and would like authentic Italian food do yourself a favor and stop by here. It is a family run business dating back several decades. My wife and I usually order their Rabbit which is cooked in olive oil and several spices and is delicious. They have several other fine looking dishes that people enjoy... 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.
