Great Food, Great Location, Great Service

Me & my Fiancé visited this restaurant on my birthday & we're very pleased with the experience. The location was beautifully placed in a square, facing a Grand church & water fountain which had street performers in front. The service was Top Notch & the food was amazing.

We were told that there was a wonderful trattoria in the Trastevere area. When we went there it was closed. Instead we were lucky enough to find Sabatini nearby. It sets the standard of Italian fine dining. We had a table under the shades. The mixed seafood pasta dishes were outstanding, seafood soups were rich but yet full of flavours.... More

Huge charge on bill that is in small print. Do NOT order market price fish, they will charge you very expensive. The pasta was good but everything is 50% inflated in pricing. Find other places!

We went here on our final night of a four day city break. All in all the eateries have been superb but we were extremely disappointed here. The food was very expensive and not great, we were charged service which was poor anyway and then had a fracas with a waiter over our taxi. My girlfriend chose the steak which... More

Sitting in the late afternoon sun on April 1st enjoying beatiful food, the entertainment and people watching from the piazza with great service - how much did it cost again?

Stunning location in the piazza which probably accounted for the increase in the cost of the meal. The food I have to say was delicious and beautifully served so we were not disappointed. Atmosphere was good as we were able to sit outside in the sunshine and enjoy a quartet playing in the square. There is also a service charge... More

We are surprised by some of the the poor reviews. We had a lovely lunch there last Friday, sitting outside looking out on to the piazza. Yes, it is a bit more expensive than other local restaurants but I guess you pay a premium for the view of the square. If you want to eat for less, then there are... More

We've chosen the place because of TA rating and are not disappointed. We ordered pastas and they were really delicious. If we have a chance we'll get back here for sure. Rather bigger restaurant than all the climatic places nearby.

After a busy day visiting the coliseum & forum. We found this place in piazza Santa Maria . Lots of tourists , so tourist prices, but what do you expect in the centre of Rome. We had 4 different pasta dishes, all very nice. Good for people watching on a busy square.

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.
