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 read other reviews of this restaurant and wonder if I am in the right place, yes the waiters can be odd, yes service can be hit and miss and all the other comments are true in parts but this is Italy its the way it is and its usually worth it. The Cacio e pepe in my opinion for... More

We had high expectations for this restaurant, but they were not met. We tried the Cacio & Pepe, which was average and the Bucatini, which was terrible......... I have to say we were disappointed.

We had an above experince here, but not compared to others in Rome. The pasta starter was superb and to watch the chef's cooking was amazing. However the main course was a bit of a let down and felt like it had been pre prepared a while ago. I couldn't work out how until I saw things being passed through... More

Never had service like it. Visited on recommendation from The Guardian newspaper. Whole restaurant empty. Walked in the restaurant the same time as another couple to be seated practically on top of each other. We asked to be moved to another table to the reply of 1 of the 6 waiters NO! Inside or this table? That was enough for... More

Yep, it's really that good. I make cacio e pepe all the time at home, and I can do a decent job of it, but you haven't really tasted it until you've had it here. Also worth mentioning was the filleti di baccala we had for a starter, which was probably the best I've tasted anywhere in Rome. The place... More

The cacio e pepe was delicious and served on a toasted parmensan bowl. The place was packed with locals and most ordered the cacio e pepe, although other dishes looked really good too. We also had the panna cotta which was good but not quite as creamy as in other places. I would definitely go back for the food. The... More

We booked a table here before we left for Rome, after watching No Reservations. Our meal there was on one of our last days, so we'd already had plenty of great Italian fare. Roma Sparita is not one of the better places we ate at. I think their Cacio e Pepe was featured on the show because it's beautiful on... More

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
