Exceeded expectations

After reading some reviews I wasn't expecting much but the food was fantastic and the wait staff very friendly. The seafood pasta was the best pasta I've had in italy. Only downside is you sit very close to the next table but we ended up chatting with the tables either side.

SO RUDE!!!!! I tried making reservations and the "old" grumpy man sitting in the corner kept telling the waiter to tell us no! I asked, point blank, what night in the next 10 days is there an opening and the waiter asked the "old man" again and he said "no tables" They flat out turned us away and refused to... More

This restaurant was recommended by our concierge and is in a quaint piazza mostly frequented by locals. Surrounded by bars and other small trattorias, this restaurant was moderately priced and had helpful staff. The Cacio e Pepe was fantastic along with the mussels marinara. Grilled octopus, chicken with peppers and fried eggplant blossoms rounded out our meal along with tasty... More

This is a small place and hard to find. It is right next to St. Cecilia's. After seeing Anthony Bourdain raving about this place we had to go. The food was amazing. The Cacio e Pepe can't be beat. Like many things in Italy, they do it on a small scale but absolutely perfect what they are making. Get a... More

Besides the server being rude they served us moldy mozzarella and tried to cover it with prosciutto, like I wouldn't know. My mozzarella was blue! It tasted disgusting! Don't eat there!!!

Visited simply for the cacio e pepe on a quiet Tuesday afternoon from a 20 Euro taxi ride from the Vatican; this was going to be great, quiet and quaint, unlike the crowds at the Vatican. Girlfriend wasn't that hungry, all I wanted was the cacio e pepe and a few beers. Seems we offended him by only ordering melon... More

We followed tripadvisor's suggestions and were disappointed. Our meal was the WORST meal we have eaten in Rome. The fried artichokes were not even on the menu and so we were forced to order other appetizers which were edible at best. The cacio e Pepe was salty, gummy and drenched in cheese. Our wine (our choice) was subpar as well.... More

We came here because of rave reviews from friends about the cacio y pepe in the friend cheese basket-by far my favourite cacio y pepe in Rome! We knew the owner was very Italian and therefore occasionally deemed a little on the rude side but we were told the food speaks for itself. Both were true! we booked a table... More

If you want to dine well in a Piazza amid many animated local residents all enjoying their company, conversation and food, then this is it. The atmosphere is contagious and the 3 waiters serving outside are caricatural, efficient and great fun. The Tagliolini al Cacio e Pepe e la Coda alla Vaccinara for which this restaurant is famous is everything... 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.
