Good food is served in a comfortable environment. The outdoor space in the main square is really unique in Rome and can take place about 90 people. The inside spaces are two very welcoming hall: the entrance hall of about 30/35 people and the other room can accommodate more than 60 others.

We visited this restaurant after seeing it recommended in the Guardian. We were initially turned away because we didn't have a reservation (fair enough) but were told to return in an hour if we wanted a table. We found a charming little cocktail bar to spend our hours waiting time. How I wish we had stayed there and not returned... More

This restaurant was recommended in "Rome Where" magazine but honestly it was very disappointing. It is located in the less touristy part of Rome in an unexceptional neighborhood. Our waiter was extremely rude and seemed to dislike tourists. On many occasions he spilled water on us and bumped into our chairs. The timing for the courses was off. The food... More

Ate there on our last day in Rome. Didn't regret taking the bus to cross the river and long walk to find the restaurant. Food was very good. The restaurant filled up very quickly after us and is probably well known locally.

Anthony Bourdain referred to this restaurant as "Restaurant X." Why? A treasure hunt perhaps? He definitely did not want this place, in which he described the caccio e pepe here to be better than some of his cherished life experiences, to be overrun by travelers and tourists. I can appreciate that to a certain extent. But how was the cacio... More

This little place is good but I'm not sure they want customers from the US. When we arrived, they were not yet open (they open for lunch at 12:30). We were one of the first to be seated in the small dining room which I believe holds up to 20 maybe. Following us in were locals and business people stopping... More

Had the Cacio e Pepe. It was fantastic. Charming restaurant next to Santa Cecilia's church. Worth a visit to the church to see the very moving statue of the martyr.

One of the best meals we had in Rome. Pasta and artichoke dish was great, as were the anchovy salad and bresaola appetizers. Can't go wrong with the house red wine here, and get a glass of grappa as a digestif. Waiter had a good, dry sense of humor, and was helpful with the menu. Place is small so reservations... More

This is a small place tucked away in a small piazza. My husband and I went for dinner. Would recommend reservations as this place is very busy. Saw people turned away without reservations. Waiter was very helpful in making suggestions. We had parmesan pasta that was served in a parmesan bowl that was edible. Then we had the chicory salad... 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.
