It was a very cold evening, after a cold & windy day. Got there when restaurant opened at 7:30. Did not have a reservation, the place was empty inside, but we and others were forced to sit outside in the cold. Squash blossoms appetizer had heavy batter and fried. (Have had so much better in San Francico, CA) Mussel dish... More

We saw the review on the Guardian online article as one of the 10 best restaurants in Rome, so we booked for dinner for 7h30 pm. We arrived at 07h26 pm and all of the waiters were outside, some were smoking. I said that I have a reservation and one told me: "come back in 10 minutes, we're closed." So... More

We came here based on numerous outlets saying this was a great place for pasta - specifically the cacio e pepe. We did have a delicious meal! The cacio e pepe is certainly some of the best I've ever had. My husband had the amatriciana which was equally divine.

Wonderful restaurant, whose speciality is spaghetti 'caccio e pepe' - fantastic home made pasta, with cheese and pepper, in a parmesan biscuit tuille. Yum! The menu is full of good things. would recommend highly. Not outrageously expensive either. Spent a lovely evening sitting at a table outside in the last of the sunshine eating great food and drinking lovely Lazio... More

My husband and I went to Roma Sparita to dinner and was very good! The caccio e pepe pasta was the best pasta that I ever eat!!! The staff was friendly and funny. However we need to book a table hours before.

We were in Rome for 6 nights and after much research re restaurants we made reservations at 6 restaurants. Roma Sparita was our first night's choice and it set the bar very high. The setting is wonderful...a charming piazza and lots of outside seating which was perfect for a warm Sept evening. We were greeted warmly and brought right to... More

a dear friend suggested this restaurant. Was an unforgettable experience, like stepping into another era of Rome. This restaurant is great for its location (Trastevere), for the friendly and familiare atmosphere, for its staff typically Roman, pleasant and funny but very fast in serving and advising and, last but not least for the excellent quality of its dishes. I tasted... More
