Quaint and nice atmosphere

This visit was a recommendation and it did not disappoint. Food is good, staff are extremely friendly and the price, is better than other places we tried within the same quality. It is a little out of the way of most if the regular sight seeing venues, but in my opinion worth the visit.

The Cacio e Pepe lived up to all expectations and recommendations and was simply divine. Mouth wateringly delicious and cooked to perfection - it's a must! We were also impressed with the antipasti which were a great start to the meal; so simple, yet so tasty. Definitely recommend for lunch rather than dinner as there are nicer restaurants in terms...

I found this restaurant from a quick google and we decided to go there spontaneously. If you know you're going to go here I recommend you book ahead but they didn't have any issues squeezing us in after a bit of a wait. The staff were amazing, considering we spoke no Italian they were lovely to us. We decided to... More

We are big foodies and this was our 5th visit to Rome. We have eaten at wonderful restaurants - as a reference: Antica Pesa, Vecchia Roma, Da Giggeto . . . We had a wonderful meal here - caio e pepi was the best we have ever had!!!! Other dishes - beef w/verde sauce and pollo alla romano, grilled vegetables,... More

Roma Sparita may have worked out for Anthony Bourdain and his TV cameras, but for us it was our worst dining experience in Rome. A friend who lives in Rome made reservations for us one evening during our travels. Of course, the Cacio e Pepe was the draw -- along with an opportunity to experience more amazing Roman food and...

This trattoria is small, but it's a clean and well-lit place that makes you glad you stepped inside. The cacio e pepe is renowned, and for good reason--not the least of its attractions is the "bowl" of molded baked parmigiano reggiano the pasta is served in! Service is friendly and not overbearing, and prices are very reasonable. It's in Trastevere... More

We heard about this place from a friend of ours, and then we saw Anthony Bourdain rave about it on one of his shows. We went and we were not disappointed. Try the cacio e pepe, which it is famous for. Food overall is very good. We would love to go back. Reservations highly recommended.

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.
