After checking reviews on Tripadvisor we stumbled across this gem, and sent a booking request for the same evening. Luckily with it not being high season we got in. Nice location but you will need directions to find as tucked away down a back street. We were welocomed with a glass on Prosecco and there is a good menu choice.... More

On a rainy midweek January night this place was pretty quiet so, you'd be a bit unsure whether the food would be okay. Well it isn't. It's way better than okay. In fact, I'd rate the steak I was served as pretty dammed perfect. The service is top notch too. Right from the start, without noticing, two complementary half glasses... More

This restaurant is amazing, awesome and epic. They serve food with a lot of love. I had called them one week before and asked to reserve a table and a small birthday cake and they have showed me a great altitude and took care very much of the small details, like name of the birthday person, when to be served,...

Delicious dinner with fabulous service. Absolutely loved it, everything felt very authentic. It was a toss up between going here for a second time on our last night or trying somewhere new. I wish we had gone back here as it was a million times better than the experience we has round the corner at another restaurant.

We ate here for our first evening in Rome. We had prebooked and sat outside. The food was of a very high standard - good trattoria staples (no pizza). The service was a little slow at times (but perhaps that's the Roman dinner experience) and we were a little plagued with accordion players and rose sellers however a very good... More

La Tavernetta 48 is a charming restaurant located on a side street not far from The Pantheon. Both indoor and outdoor seating is available. My review is mixed because two of us enjoyed every morsel of our meals and two of us enjoyed everything but our entree. The meal began with a complimentary glass of Prosecco which was a lovely...
