We had a great time!

We arrived there without reservation and the place was full, but they however managed to "create" one table out of nowhere, very close to the kitchen, but that was not a problem for us at all. We were very happy that they found a place for us. The food was very delicious. We ate lamb, veal and... read more

We had there a special dish and ravioli with artichoke cream, both were the best dishes of the trip. The waiters were very friendly.

Amazing food at reasonable prices. However don't think you can just walk in, you need to book a table (even on the day) for the evening. Well worth it.

The spaghetti alla carbonara, which practically everyone in the restaurant seemed to be ordering, was the best I've had—rich and flavorful, with just the right amount of pepper. The service was also attentive and friendly.

A cosy family driven restaurant.Mama makes the food! Does it get better than that!? We ate 3 times there.The lamb was excellent, the different pasta dishes were fantstic and their tiramisu was sinfully good. We will certainly be back next time we are in Rome.

We had a pretty simple meal here of red wine and Carbonara but the Carbonara was to die for and the portion was enormous. The waiter was also very kind and recommended we ordered Carbonara for 2 between 3, which was more than enough. We had Tiramisu after dinner, which was not on the menu but we saw others eating...

We went there for dinner as per a friend recommendation. Everything was perfect, quality of the food is amazing and the price is very reasonable. But the best of it was the waiter who served us MARCO he is just outstanding, very charming and friendly. Will always recommend this restaurant. Thank you

We had a lovely meal in this restaurant which was recommended by our hotel, however we were the only non Italian diners the night we visited and it was very apparent to us that we were invisible to our waiter, after our main course it would have been nice to be asked if we would like a dessert or coffee,...

Some Italian friends took us here for lunch today. Luckily we had booked as the restaurant was full-booked with families there for Sunday lunch. Delicious food: simple but tasty.

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.
