It is worth the visit to this restaurant to try the Cacio e Pepe. We have tried this at several restaurants in Rome and this is the best. I was surprised to read some reviews about 'rude staff' and 'expensive meals'. This is certainly not an expensive place to eat. We dined with friends, having 3 courses and wine. The... More

Like many others, we visited thanks to Bourdain's No Reservation episode about Rome. Unlike many others, we actually arrived with no reservations on a Saturday night and still got tables at 9pm, although we sat inside. No rude old waiter here? Food was pretty good, with their highlight Cacio e Pepe delivering on a rich cheesy taste and another pasta... More

The reviews which refer to the rude older waiter are spot on. And he's clearly having an effect on his colleagues! Restaurant was only 1/4 full compared to a number of others we passed by - We should have picked up on the fact that people were queuing at the restaurant just around the corner! Menu was very limited too.... More

We (like many others) decided to eat here off of friends & Anthony Bourdain's recommendations. I made my reservation via email weeks before our trip. There was a lot of back & forth, but I was able to secure a date & time. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and taken to our table. We asked for menu recommendations and... More

We were unimpressed by the food – there is much better food and Rome to be had. Unlike some of the other reviews, we had fantastic service. Maybe it's because we are eating a late lunch and just stuck with pastas. Our server, however was beyond nice and attentive.

I have been to Roma Sparita several years ago and had an amazing meal. This year I happened to be in Rome for my birthday so I decided that this is where we would have lunch. The food was all very good; each of us had a pasta meal...Cacio e Pepe and Amatriciana were excellent. My issue didn't happen until... More

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

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.
