Ethical Trattoria

The food and the service was great - the best thing is that professionals work for free alongside people with permanent disabilities. It has a lovely vibe and good ethics, from what I experienced.

Sympathetic way of letting people with a handicap work in a normal setting. Great idea! One major mistake: in the menu one of the deserts was called tarte tatin. We ordered it, and saw it was not a tarte tatin, but something totally different. When paying the bill we gave some feedback, but no refund (from the owner). It was... More

This restaurant is fantastic, and well worth a diversion to visit. Part of the Sant'Egidio Community, this is a really impressive place. The most fantastic wine - Il Borro - worth every penny. Make the difference, make the journey.

While visiting Trastevere we saw this sympathetic looking restaurant with tables outside in the sun and shade. It was a surprise to read that this restaurant was run by an organisation that helps people " with a distance to work" to get experience. Our lunch here was wonderful. The food was really good!!, the people so friendly and helpful .... More

I had dinner on my last night in Rome at this place. The location was cute, atmosphere was nice. The food was not exceptionally good, but it was ok. The service was nice. They offered me a second glass of wine since I had to wait too long for their standards between two courses...I did not think it was so... More

I believe that the concept they've created ( working with people with disabilities ) is extremely nice but it can't be an excuse for the quality of the food where the price is quite high. We ordered a lasagna ( which was average good though really small for the 10euro we paid for it ) and a caesar salad which... More

If you get a little tired of the constant hustle, this is the place for you. The atmosphere is relaxed, and the restaurant is almost tucked away in a small square in Trastevere, but also in the middle of everything, so you can sit and people watch. The staff are extremely charming without being grating, it's all very laid back... More

If you decide to visit the Trastevere area, you should make sure that you don't fall into these more than common tourist traps. This place is simple, good and friendly. The cause they support (make people with disabilities work with professionals) is great and the service is the better for it. Traditional Italian food, home made and generous. You can't... 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.
