Cold noodles for lunch!

On our first night in Rome we made it across town to eat here. Grilled pork belly and beer. An oasis of non-Italian food.

Terrific find, especially when needing something different. Authentic, generous portions and great food. Must try.

I lived in Korea for over 3 years and know authentic Korean food; this place has it. I make it a point of visiting a Korean restaurant in each city that I visit. This is the best in Europe, so far. The side dishes are perfect and spiced perfectly.

If you tire of pizza and pasta, and long for some fresh, nutritious, exciting cuisine, this is the place to go. The service was attentive and charming, and although the dishes look pricey, you get loads of side dishes and even fresh pineapple for dessert included. Arrive hungry, don't order more than one dish to start with, or you will... More

I went there the first time last week and I must admit that I really liked it. Each of us had a different kind of noodles so that we could try from each other. In addition they served us some side dishes like kimchi, potatoes and beans which were all very delicious. It's not very cheap but there portions are... More

The vegetarian rice rolls I ordered contained crab sticks or as the staff said beautiful "fruit de mer" Wich it by no standard is, and especialy not if you dont eat meat! The staff was also quite rude, hardly spoke a word english and for some reason thought that a woman buying liquor was moraly wrong. Stay away if you... More

There is only one word to describe I-Gio: excellent. I have been there numerous times, and every time the food is fantastic, and the service is wonderful. The only downside to this restaurant is they close at 10pm which is very strange in Italy (as most people don't get dinner till around 9:00). Nonetheless, this restaurant is not to be... More

I convinced my friends to visit this restaurant after a wonderful trip to South Korea couple weeks back. I loved Korean food and could not resist the temptation. All my friends really liked the food and were grateful for dragging them there. Unfortunately, if you're just back from that country and looking for some authentic Korean food - this is... More

I have been to I-Gio twice now. First time I went with some Korean friends who knew the place. Second time just with my wife, in a night of craving for non-italian food. Both times I had a great experience. Food is really good. Service excellent. And when the weather is good you can dine sitting outdoor in the beautiful... More

We were desperate for non-Italian cuisine and found this well-priced Korean eatery practically on our doorstep in Trastevere. Good food and was under 40 euro.

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.
