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

Trattoria degli Amici has an unique and friendly atmosphere, because of the disabled working there with the professional staff. The restaurant cooperates with the Christian community of Sant'Egidio. In addition to this The restaurant serves very good food. Try the antipasti and pasta dishes. Trastevere itself is more than worth visiting especially in the late evening.

In any case, this is a nice place for a dinner, as this restaurant is part of a project employing some disabled in the Kitchen and as waiters. Food is relatively good (wonderful polpette cacio e pepe, cheese balls), and decoration is a bit higher than a normal Trastevere trattoria. The bill it is as well.

This is a great trattoria in Trastevere. The place is pretty nice, it's in a square in the middle of Trastevere and has both indoor and outdoor tables. The rooms are decorated by frames the people who run this place. And this is the special things: here the place is run by people with some disabilities from a community promoted... More

We walked through Trastevere on Easter Sunday, passed a lot of very tourist-trappy looking restaurants, then stumbled by chance over this gem, full of Italian customers, which we took as a good sign. The food was very good, the service a bit chaotic, but since this is a place where people with disabilities train to become professionals, this was more... More

Walking around Trastevere and trying to find a good dinner spot when we stumbled upon Trattoria degli Amici. The atmosphere of the place is airy and light, and happy while busy. For starters had the fried zucchini flowers and suppli. Zucchini flowers were nice, but the suppli was outstanding! The pastas (all’amatriciana, and cacio e pepe) were again very good.... More
