Best Cacio e Pepe I've ever had! The artichokes (a la judia) were also great. Excellent service. Very authentic place; full of locals.

While I wait in a near restaurant, I take my time to write a critic about the awful service of Roma Sparita. I knew before hand that a reservation was needed (it must be the unique restaurant in the whole Rome with such pretension) but its staff showed inexistent interest and didn't intended to help at all. Not even when... More

We walked from the Vatican to have a late lunch. We arrived at 2:30 and thy were closing. Thanks tripadvisor for screwing up our day, which was planned around having lunch here. Be advised they close from 2:30 to 7:30. Been looking forward to this place for months, so bummed.

At the Piazza Santa Cecilia,you will find this traditional small restaurant in Roma.Food is great,making a classic place to go back and eat the superb specialty of the restaurant,tagliolini cacio e pepe,but also other high quality delicious roman dishes.Since it is a small restaurant it is advisable to reserve and check if the restaurant is open during low season.

Recommend you make reservations, it's a small restaurant and popular with local as well as tourists. The cascio e Pepe is not to be missed, do eat the suppli and the fried artichokes, they were great both time we dined there!

Saw the Cacio e Pepe featured on Anthony Bourdain's show and knew I had to try it while we were in Rome. The location is a bit out of the way from tourist attractions and from the Heart of Rome there is no easy public transportation to get to the restaurant. Looked up the opening hours and on a Tuesday... More

We had lunch here in late October - having read the reviews on TripAdvisor. It was great! Our Vespa tour guides dropped us off here and we met up with our friends. We sat outside under a shade and had a delicious meal - I had the house special (noodles with cheese - it's spaghetti noodles served in a large... More

Although at first intimidating, the waiter looking after the tables outside finally directed us to sit, and from that point onwards was absolutely fantastic, helping us to order and giving recommendations. Loved the little rice croquettes, mozzarella as dreamy as usual, house speciality pastas are a little too salty for my taste, but still gorgeous, and we had a wonderful... More

My husband and I tried going to Roma Sparita for lunch in May 2012. Like many others, I saw it on Anthony Bourdain and had to try it. It was a Saturday, and we arrived in the neighborhood around noon, which is 30 minutes before the restaurant opens. We wandered around the charming neighborhood for a while to waste time... More

OK, guys. I know we're supposed to give this place crap because Bourdain ruined it. And apparently the quality of the food and service has gone down. But I have to say that I still loved my experience here and think you will too. Although I mostly dislike Rome, I would come back just for the cacio e pepe and... More
