My fiancé and I booked a reservation with a couple of months to go to our trip after reading reviews on here and looking at their menu. This was the best meal we both have had during our time in Rome. A little tricky to find, but if you have a a tourist map, it's found easy enough in the... More

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...

We wandered by this place the evening before. Luckily, our hotel was able to make a dinner reservation for us. It was our last night in Rome (and Italy) and we were looking for a unique, local experience. This is a difficult place to find, but that's the beauty of it. We started with a liter of the house red... More

We know Rome quite well and in most places you can eat very good, this ristorante, however, stands out from the others. We had both lunch and dinner here and both were excellent!! The service was perfect and the price was very reasonable, everything is freshly prepared, we also noticed that this restaurant is frequented by Romans,which is always a... More

Another place where I wish I could give 4 ½ stars. After two bad meals and another average one in Rome, we were desperate to have a good dining experience on our last night. We stopped by la Tavernetta 48 at lunch time to check it out and to make reservations for dinner. We were encouraged by the fact that... More
