We reserve this ahead of our trip to Rome, having eating in Sabatini restaurants in other major cities. We were disappointed. the food was average with some of the seafood overcooked. Everything was expensive compared to the other similar restaurants we ate in over the week in Rome. Service was average.

This busy restaurant came highly recommended. It is on a busy piazza in Trastevere, a vibrant neighbourhood full of energy and interesting nooks and crannies. The restaurant is almost always full so reservations are recommended. The staff cope with the large crowds, but barely; they perform their tasks with good cheer and forbearance. The menu has a wide range and... More

What a great experience! We went on the recommendation of the Italian man who organized our Italy trip and what a great meal we had. Mr Sabatini came over and visited with us and eventually he was the one who served us and the meal was spectacular. We started off with the sampler appetizer and the wine which was suggested... More

I had dinner at Sabatini with my husband on 9/28/14 and these people just handled everything poorly. It is our first trip to Italy and we are American, and so sometimes, things on Italian menus are difficult to understand. That being said, being in a highly trafficked touristy area, these people should know how to handle international restaurant patrons. That... More

We went for lunch, and this was the best risotto I've had. Service was good and the setting was lovely. Would have loved to go back if we'd had time.

I made the mistake of stopping here for a short break after visiting the beautiful church of Santa Maria. The bill for a small appetizer with 1 bruschetta, an artichoke and an unidentifiable fried object as well as water and 1 glass of the open house wine was 35 Euro. The service was surly and inattentive (however, 15% was added... More

I went with my colleagues to have some dinner and the whole experience was a disaster. The waiters ignored us, the portions were very small, they even came with a plate that they decided to divide for two people (when it was obviously only for one). Too expensive and the food very, very mediocre. Not worth it at all.

We were advised of this restaurant by the St. Regis Rome concierge. The recommendation the night before was spectacular but this restaurant was disappointing. Wonderful atmosphere of of the Piazza Santa Maria in Travastere but the service was very mediocre (i.e. very little interest in us) and the food was fair to average (i.e. could have cooked it ourselves at...

Having just eaten at a high end restaurant round the corner where a glass of house white cost €3 we were lured into a false sense of security on arrival at Sabatini and ordered 2 glasses of house white, specifying that we wanted their best value option but not checking the menu first. 1 hour and a few less-than-desirably-crisp crisps...

Sabitini is still an excellent restaurant. It has recently changed hands after many years. The original owners were still on site servicing and watching, I don't know how long they will be there. Hopefully the new owners will continue there excellent record. I will try them again when in Rome.
