He charged 15pc as cover charges and did have the decency to return change back. Ended up paying over... read more

He charged 15pc as cover charges and did have the decency to return change back. Ended up paying over 20 pc as tips!

I'm not sure if I'm more upset with all the great reviews or the restaurant itself. We visited L'archetto this evening. Based ok on the great reviews we felt pretty confident with our choice. We were so upset with our food & service that I just had to review. The food was bland the service was poor. I would not... More

This place is probably built for the passing tourist, but certainly knocked our socks off. It was an extremely friendly place with plenty of authentic Italian dishes. The humorous staff were extremely accommodating, splitting a spaghetti dish into two separate bowls each still containing more than enough pasta for a sensible sized human being to consume. The chocolate mousse was... More

This place has the biggest selection of pasta sauces I've seen in Rome, and I live here! Everything I've eaten here is delicious. Today I had a perfect dish os spaghetti all'Amatriciana. They were quite generous with the sauce (probably because I'm American) but it was a perfect dish. The service is quick and friendly. The house red wine was... More

The pasta was very good. The best we had. The hose wine was was also great. The place itself is located in a cute alley near Trevi Fountain. 5 minutes after we arrived a line began piling up, but it moved pretty fast. Everybody in trip-advisor complained about the "surprise check", and what actually happens is that it says in... More

This is a true treasure and will be a wonderful experience for you. Their house wine is excellent. We had an enjoyable time with the staff and the food was the best we have experienced here.

We visited this restaurant for lunch. We were a little concerned it was a tourist trap, but the kids were really hungry after a morning of walking in the searing Roman heat, so we gave it a chance. The food was excellent. We had mostly had Pizza, but my wife had a delicious lasagna. Service was only so-so. We were... 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.
