The best in Rome!

My friend and I went to Rome for a few days as a part of our trip to Italy back in March of 2013. I remember looking up on Trip Advisor for one of the best Italian restaurants in the city. Marco G came up and after glancing at the reviews, we were set. Although we got lost and it... read more

I was really looking forward to eating here, it was my second last night being in Rome, a friend of mine called (it was pretty late at night) explaining to the staff that we wanted to make reservations knowing it was so late in the evening! They managed to keep the restaurant open and honor our reservation! The service was... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel staff and was very easy to find in the Trastavere area. The restaurant is somewhat formal looking and larger than most others we had been in. We went on a Thursday evening - there were very few people in the restaurant and only one other couple came in whilst we were there. We... More

The Food was delicious and, like the Slogan on Marcos Business Card says, "semplice e fresca".Try the grilled artichoke, it's special... The staff was very attentive and friendly. We'll definitely book a table at Marco G. next time we*ll be in Rome again!

Marco G is one of the best places to eat in Trastevere, Rome. It is a special place that knows how to treat it's customers. They are professional and attentive. We love the mussels and clams appetizer, as well as their main dishes. They have a wonderful selection of wines, although we usually have the house red which is delicious.... More

Marco and his team did it again. I was in Rome a couple of years ago with friends and had fabulous meals at Marco G. When we decided to go back for New Year's Eve I emailed the restaurant and Marco responded very quickly with our reservation confirmation. Dinner was to die for - see pictures! Three cheeses - Buffalo... More

Dinner at Marco G was simply wonderful! Everything was delicious and at reasonable prices. The prosciutto and lemon appetizer was flavorful and refreshing. Both our dinner entrees were very well seasoned and fresh. However, what we enjoyed the most was the house made (daily) tiramisu! The one drawback is that my fiancee kept trying to lick the inside of the... More

We trusted TripAdvisor on this one and it did not disappoint. Amazing food, tremendous service and wonderful atmosphere. Away from the touristy places and very special. Highly highly recommend.

Wonderful dinner. Started with fried artichoke and trio of fresh buffalo mozzarella. So yummy! Pasta trio entre of pumpkin ravioli with butter and sage, fettuccine with artichokes, and little rigatoni with bacon in fresh tomato sauce. Fantastic! Finished with warm chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. Quite decadent. We thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant.

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.
