Contemporary modern food

Really enjoyed our dinner here as it seemed the real deal and made a nice change from the usual pizza and pasta offerings for the tourists (us). Staff were a bit too hip to be properly efficient but they were friendly enough if a little slow and aloof. Food however was fantastic and very well put... read more

My brother and I stayed 4 days in Rome, and we tried many difference restaurants. This one is at the top of the list. The caprese salad was just perfect, with very very tasty tomatoes and yummy mozzarella. We then had a plate of pasta : nothing complicated, yet delicious. The wine was also vey good (Chianti). The decor is... More

I liked it a lot, as I'm a hard sell for 'loved it!' - that said, this IS one of my favourite spots to eat/drink in Rome... located in the Trastevere, but just outside the loud throbbing heart of the more tourist dense neighbourhood. 'Italian service' (slow, but friendly), really good food, coffee, and great inventive cocktails.

Baylon Cafe sits half way down Viale di San Francesco a Ripa that connects from the bustling Viale di Trastevere to Piazza Santa Maria. At a glance it is just another unassuming cafe with some street tables under an awning. Well, stop and take a seat, because it's a gem. It is frequented heavily by locals, always a good sign....

We had breakfast several times here as we were staying in the Rhea Silvia Luxury Rooms B&B. Every time wel enjoyed the breakfast, very Italian, but with scrambled eggs as well. It is a lovely place to start your day surrounded by locals on their way to work or whatever. Staff was friendly, the bar is well laid out and... More

Located on Via Di San Francesco A Ripa is another Bistro worthy of noting. Yes, this was my third place to eat. I have to admit I spent all day from late morning to finally eating here by late evening, but still found room to have more food! I have to be honest. Trastevere district is just so beautiful I...

We were really hungry and just looking for some quick food to refuel - this place hit the spot. It has a pub like feel but serves well presented authentic Italian food, if you are nearby I would definitely recommend a visit.

We had breakfast at the Baylon Cafe before a long day of walking through Rome. The cafe was buzzing with locals and tourists alike. There were pastries and charcuterie on the side which could be picked to have in or take out. We had the pancakes which came with fruit and bacon, and the Moroccan Eggs. Both were delicious. Washed... More

Been here three times, because we live around the corner and want--really want---to like this place. But each and every time, service has been horrific. The wait staff is all young and hip, and, if you an get their attention, they seem responsive. But they will inevitably get your order wrong, or forget to put it in, or leave you... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
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.
