We had two courses here, both starting with their signature "Cacio e Pepe", a pasta dishes served in a cheese sauce, and inside a 'bowl' made of cheese. It was very cheesy, my partner had to scrape off some of the parmesan that was on top, but I enjoyed it immensely. Unfortunately our main course of beef was far too... More

Visited for lunch, and as with most people had the cacio è pepe. After failing to get here on a previous trip to rome I was determined to make it there this time around. It was definitely worth trying at least once. We did manage to finish it all off, although it was quite a heavy dish. Wasn't miles better... More

We were staying at a hotel close by on our last night in Rome. The place was extremely busy in the evening and we didn't have a reservation. Luckily we came at a time when the first set of diners were leaving (I think it was around 21:00 hrs.) and within a few minutes the owner had found us a... More

We went for the cacio e pepe which is served in a bowl made of pecorino cheese. It was great, but so was everything else on the menu. This is not haute cuisine, but it is at the top end of good family restaurants. The service was surprisingly good given the small staff and the crush of customers. You definitely... More

We enjoyed our dinner at sparita! The Cacio e pepe is what it is: good homemade basic pasta. Other items on the menu are good also. We arrived late (10pm) with out reservation and we didn't have to wait long, we would certainly not wait for a table longer than 10 minutes there. The staff is Friendly, specially the family... More

One of those places where they make you feel welcome, when they recommend a meal or a wine, you simply feel you can trust them, they will talk you through the entire menu and pick up what you need to try (no, that you eat at home, this you eat in a restaurant or try this, this is a typical... More

Simply a typical roman "Trattoria"! You need to taste the "Cacio e Pepe" dish where actually you are obliged to eat the dish :)

We dined here on our first night in Rome. Located in the heart of beautiful bohmeian Trastevere this is a must visit to try the Tagliolini cacio de pepe. Everyone on here seems to rave about it, so that could put you off.. however it is amazing and worth the vist.

The cacio e pepe here is outstanding (and I am a c & p junkie) and it even comes in an edible parmisan bowl that gives the cacio e pepe competition. The house wine was excellent as were the fruit and coffee. The service was professional, friendly, and impeccable. I opted to eat inside and the decor was lovely. However,... More

Caccia e pepe are top but do not hope to loose any weight. Service is good. The only minus is that is a little bit crowded. Good prices
