Well, I chose this place for my last dinner in Rome based on the fact it was close to my hotel and had pretty good TripAdvisor reviews. I'm not sure my expectations were low enough. There is zero ambiance - expect plastic table cloths, harsh lighting and as a reviewer below mentioned, secondhand smoke from the staff if you sit... More

This place was awesome! The food was amazing. I'd say it was the best I had in Rome. The people were super friendly. They treat you like family. For being a small place, they got the food out pretty fast. It is run by a mother(the chef) and her son. It's a small place, but very fun. If I'm ever... More

I found this place on trip advisor and it was close to our hotel. We are both vegetarians, the choice was limited for us but what we did have was good. The freshly made pasta was tasty. Pricing was reasonable. The place could do with being painted, dim the lights and some some background music, it would make all the... More

This place was recommended by the awesome people at the Yes Hotel. My wife and I, newlyweds, spent our first day in Rome walking and seeing multiple locations and landmarks. So, when we got to the hotel at 9pm we had forgotten to eat a good meal all day. We asked the reception for their pointers and Trattoria dell'Omo was... More

This place is tucked away on a side street near Termini. It's been around for around a half century and the food is fabulous, the service outstanding - thank you Antonio! - and it's all very authentic. For a great Italian dining experience, you must try it. We ate here two nights in a row and it was very memorable.

Very underrated, understated and so so delicious. True honest italian food that we were after, the ravioli with sage butter and lasagna was to die for. Fantastic staff that loved our attemp at speaking italian. Definitely worth a look, you won't be disappointed

This trattoria pretty much made our whole vacation! I found it by googling 'best pasta in roma' and I was not disappointed! We went there two nights in the row because we were extremely impressed, on the first night I had the mushroom fettucini and my mom had the spaghetti with shrimps and zucchini. The pasta was extremely flavorful, my... More

So I normally do not do in depth reviews but I feel like this place deserves it. It is very complicated and requires it. So first let me say that physically this place is not impressive as we normally think of it today. It appears stuck in time, but in a nice way. With hand powered meat slicer, and other... More

Went here after our hotel suggested it as authentic and well priced. It was well priced however the food was not great. I had the highly recommended ravioli and my husband the carbonara. I can make better homemade pasta myself. The ravioli was giant and just was like a layered lasagne, and not that flavorful. Husband thought something tasted burnt... More

Was expecting much more. Food was average. I've had better pasta in north America. The people there were very nice but the good wasn't at all what I was looking for. A clean cute little restaurant, but there are nicer restaurants.
