A nice place near the Tiber (Lungotevere) to eat in nice atmosphere

As Roman not living anymore in Rome some friends took me there and I can tell you that I disagree with some of the recent reviews. The atmosphere is nice, the prices are correct and reasonable, if you are by car it is not very difficult to find at night a parking. The service is good and the staff... read more

We ate here on our first night in Trastevere. Whilst situated on the very busy Lungotevere Ripa, it is walled off from the road and this makes it a really nice atmosphere. You feel like you are sitting in a nice relaxed private garden. We certainly did not get any feeling of being taken for a ride as tourists, nor... More

San Michele has a lovely terrace in a courtyard which protects you from the bustle of the lungotevere close by. They also have a roof that can come over the terrace if it suddenly starts raining as it has been doing quite frequently this July. We had two different starters: one with ricotta, tomatos and truffles and another with scarmoza,... More

You've heard about Italian waiters misstreating their guests? Here you'll find it in reality. You're warned about places where they serve overpriced food and wine to tourists? Here you go. Enjoy salty Saltimboca and meat grilled to death! Don't go! We did not try the Pizza, which possibly is much better. The bruscetta was fine though.

We ordered a mixed grill of meat and one of fish with baked potatoes on the side. The meat was all greasy, hardly anything to chew on. We left the fish dish untouched because it smelled awful. The potatoes were all burned black. You can find dozens of better restaurants just around the corner in Trastevere.

Certainly a something different - very good Italian food but what does one expect when in Rome. Wait staff are very good and aren't anti a non- European accent. Numerous authentic dishes which really did impress. Beverages were a little average to be honest but it might have been what we all choose. Location is just lovely outside and weather... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
