Not bad but not great.

The food was ok but nothing that made me say"wow". The service was fine. We got carbonara and riggatoni with basil and aubergines. The green salad was fresh and crunchy but lacked in the dressing department.

I've been coming here since 1998 when I was with a group of 60 people. We had reserved a table (several tables) and ended up being more than 1 hour late. Nevertheless they held the tables for us, which was absolutely great service. Out of gratitude I always eat here when I'm in Rome, and with pleasure! The pizza's are... More

Excellent pizza. Very nice pasta. DO NOT LEAVE WITHOUT HAVING A TIRAMISU. Definitely a reason to go back to Rome. Expensive!

If you only looking for good budget food this is the place in Trastevere.I have removed one star only for the service. The demand for their food is very high hence probably they can't keep up with the service. Ignoring that great place to hang out with friends or family. Try the Tartufo Bianca for the dessert.Pizzas are also fab.Four... More

This is buzzy, lively and serves delicious crisp pizza at reasonable prices. Wine is reasonable too.

We stumbled upon the ristorante near Saint Maria Church nearby. We went in almost immediately without a reservation Items on the mnus were reasonably price, definitely a very good Price-to-Quality ratio. A great selection of pizzas, freshly made in hot coal pizza oven which is always a good sign. I had the Cacio a Pepe, which was cooked to perfect... More

We had read about Ivo in a Danish newspaper, which recommended it as a great experience, off the beaten track. We came reasonably early, which was our luck, because an hour later the place was packed... It's packed, it's loud and it's a lot of fun... People talk, laugh, eat and drink wine and have a good time there. Not... More

Not sure why this place shows to be pricey. We had antipasto, pizza, and wine for under 25?. The pizza was great. Give this place a try.

We loved our pizza at Ivo. On my first trip to Rome, we missed going to this well known pizzeria, so we were determined not to miss this time. We ordered the "normale" size, one each. You can also have "gigante" but we wanted to save room for dessert. Part of the experience is the fun of looking inside, seeing... More

So glad we found this restaurant on our Rome trip. We ate pizza with aubergine that was excellent!! They have yellow tiramisu that was amazing as well!Restaurant was full of people while the locals in the neighbourhood were almost empty (which I always take to be a good sign). The service was very nice and friendly. I will be back... More

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.
