Last summer we had a great family trip to Rome. We wanted to try the Trastevere area food since it was a highly recommended area. We loved this place! Great festive atmosphere, the place was always busy, we came at least 3 times later at night. We had a super fun, witty, charismatic waiter, Tony, who was absolutely amazing at... More

We were seated straight away and then were left waiting a while until I asked the waitress if we could order. The glasses on the table were all dirty. We went for the €13 set menu which offered a drink, entree, main and dessert. The entrees were ok, they looked like they'd just been thrown on the plate though... No... More

Although we had to wait a couple of minutes for a table - since there were quite a few people there - we knew from the menu that this place was suitable for us. They had many pizzas, pastas and other dishes as well, so we had a wide choice. The atmosphere was touching on a small square in the... More

Restaurant was very busy and the area had been recommended by out hotel. We choose an antipasti buffet - which had flys landing on at by the time we went to pick our items. The veal was terrible quality, pasta under-cooked and prosecco was flat. Terrible.

One waiter was very unpolite. The food is no good. You better look for anothe place. Un mesero fue muy grosero, le pedimos una explicación y casi nos pega.

My husband and i had lunch here on our journey in the Trastevere area of Rome. We were still able to order and have an enjoyable time considering their english and my italian are pretty bad! Our waitress gave us suggestions and we ordered from a multi course menu. It was the perfect amount of food and it was delicious.... More

The perfect tourist trap. Very nice out doors and once you sit down you forget that it is there to enjoy your meal. It is there to take your money as fast as possible without giving you any food. The experience I had was unbelievable. These guys make a fortune out of ten tables and they don't even smile. Iam... More

It is one of few places in Rome, where you can find good food (especially meat and fish, not these horrible pizza and pasta, but they are also good at this place) at a reasonable price. Here are the lowest prices you can find in Rome, friendly and quick (!) waiters. I'd recommend this place to all my friends. Trastevere... More

Providing dinner in the heart of Rome for a family of 5 for 60 Euros (including wine) was a real find. The atmosphere was casual and welcoming, with dining in one of the small, quieter squares of Trastevere. The pasta dishes were quite good, as were the rosemary-roasted potatoes; the grilled veal chop very reasonably priced. Service was with a... More

The food in Il Ponentino is very tasty, simple and goes well with the house wine. The prices are awesome - and I guess the food is of similar quality to many restaurants in the Rome city centre for much less. Good place to rest after a long walking tours :)
