I had read good reviews about this trattoria in the heart of Trastevere and was attracted by their concept of employing and helping handicapped,unfortunate individuals who have a chance to serve and be a part of a bustling restaurant.Menu had a lot of fantasy and it seems it changed with the seasons.Some classic roman dishes but also imaginative combinations from...

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at this restaurant. The food was of a high standard; prompt service and delivered with a smile. More importantly we were happy to be helping a worthy cause.

One might have many reasons to eat at this place (hence three stars in place of two) but the food. - It's in a very good location, the very center of Trastevere. - Serving staff is extremely nice and efficient. - It's a goodwill project, it's supporting handicapped or less-than-able people by employing them and help them learn the job...

Our friend in Italy is a social worker with Community of Sant'Egidio, an organization that supports developmentally disabled adults in Rome and runs this restaurant. The employees are adults who have disabilities, as well as volunteers who are not disabled, who work along side one another. All our meals were good and the atmosphere, in a lovely area of Trastevere,... More

We enjoyed tonight a great dinner at this nice location. The meat stripes were spicy, the swordfish perfect and the cod well seasoned. All starters and side dishes were creative inventions. The friendly staff was patient with our improvised Italian and speaks English fluently. By the way, it was a recommendation by a local friend. Enjoy:)

My family had a lunch here in February. We were in Trastevere and were hungry. Many restaurants were closed so we found ourselves in Trattoria deli Amici. The food was very good. The trattoria was full of priests and local groups with foreign guest. During the lunch we found that there were disabled people among the staff. We really loved... More

Very enjoyable restaurant in the attractive Trastevere area of Rome. The food was very good, and the service was warm and friendly. The waitresses modest English and my much less modest Italian was just fine. The atmoshpere in the small plaza close to the Mueseo di Roma in Trastevere is filled with charm and the Trattoria fits in perfectly. Altogether... More

I try to eat here each time I am in Rome. The food is good but I just love the idea of the trattoria; friends with and without disabilities working to make a dining experience memorable. On my last trip I went for lunch, on leaving I forgot my sweater. One of the staff ran across the square to return... More

I have always been meaning to visit gli Amici, and finally got round to doing so recently. Three of of us on a busy Monday night in June found a table inside easily. Service was friendly, if a little slow and forgetful towards the end of the evening. There are lots of things on the menu that you wouldn't find... More

Hidden in the heart of Trastervere is one of the nicest restaurants I have even been in. Immediately I liked the look of it - the menu differed from the countless of other restaurants in the area, the decor was bright and fresh, the atmosphere was busy. This was enough for me to wait for half an hour. The wait... More
