This is what is called "touristic place". Well located in a corner of a beautiful square in Trastevere and attracts tourists with quiet moderate prices. Though quality of food is absolutelly below any standards - that was the worst meal we had during our 4 days stay in Rome (I do compare this place with the places of the same... More

Two things to recommend this place 1. Non-stop service, which is how we ended up there after plans for Sunday pranzo ran late 2. Reasonable prices. We had a fixed price meal: primo, secondo, contorno, dolce and water, then added a bottle of wine and an antipasto. I'm not a cook, but a bicycle mechanic, so when a dish in... More

For a fast, inexpensive, delicious and healthy lunch, choose from il Ponentino's wide array of vegetable dishes, all of which are prepared with care, in the Roman style. This is an utterly un-fancy joint, but during my week in Trastevere, it became my daily lunchtime destination. And, after your meal, don't forget to get a bag of cookies, to go.

It was just a bit thin... Had the 25 € menu and none of the courses was much to talk about.... Wine of the house tasted rather thin. Not recommended from here.

We went there by accident. Very cheap comparing to other side of Rome We were greeted by the owner. We keep returning there. It's very busy place - so you need to wait for food.

Even though the pizza was ok, the starter was ridiculous (one lonely suppli on an otherwise empty plate). And a very average tiramisu (supermarket quality). Just a place to have a quick bite between walking, but nothing special Not great service and could be cheaper for this quality of food

I saw the mixed reviews after we ate lunch here. We sat outside and had excellent pizzas. Mine with porcini and ham called Pizza Angelino. At 7.5 EU it was great value. Thin crisp crust. Service was satisfactory too. Toilets are clean

We went here because of the nice look from the outside. It's a really cute Italian place. That's why we didn't check on trip adviser: big mistake! We had carbonara. Good, if you like to chew your noodles really bad, because they were really hard. I had a pizza fungi and ham. It was loaded with cheese and only tasted... More

Don't how know anyone can say the food here was nice! Granted we only had the carbonara but that was enough to turn us off. The lady next to us was picking at her food, left half of it then refused to pay. We thought she was being a bit dramatic - until we got our meals. Never had a... More
