Giving always attention to meet the changing course of the latest trends, the restaurant has the culinary agility to anchor the current fashion to the heritage of the rules and quality of the food products, maintaining the delicate equilibrium between discretion and popularity. In this way, we assure our guests to be present, without appearing. The original customs officer and the modern host, preserving the historic mission of the place, have been followed by a family known as connoisseurs of taste: the perfection of the proposed cuisine, offered in an ambiance enhanced by the beauty of the great artworks and the meticulous attention for each guest, so to guarantee an exclusive atmosphere combined with the warmth of a comforting familiarity. Our guest, no matter from which movie set arrives, or for how long hasn’t come, is always welcomed with a smile, a shake of hand, a delicious meal accompanied by an excellent wine and with the warmth of the art surrounding this fascinating angle of Rome. We know well that what the body nurtures is not foreign to the soul.

From the outside you wouldn't guess what a delightful restaurant this is. You go into the reception area and it feels like a gentleman's club. You are greeted by the owners father, I believe the original owner and are taken past a large selection of photographs of famous people that have eaten in the restaurant. The outside dining area is... More

Was so eager to try this famous restaurant. Sadly the experience came short of what I expected. The dining room is truly beautiful and the setting very romantic and exclusive. Service is erratic and some waiters are much more efficient than others who go past your table 15 times before understanding you have finished your meal 20 minutes ago. The... More

Nothing special. Well known place but far too expensive and the food taste is very poor. Can find much better place in the area at affordable price. Will not recommend

After visiting Antica Pesa 2 yearrrs ago on a business trip, I made sure to bring my wife to enjoy this great restaurant. The hostess and waiters were extremely professional and attentive, offering suggestions and recommending several dishes and complementary wines. While the meals and wines are exceptionally good, the price is steep - a bit expensive, but still a... More

I am very skeptical when I walk into a place to immediately see number of photos of celebrities taken with the owner. The food and energy of a restaurant should speak for itself. In our case the typical Roman dishes we ordered was average at best in comparison to other places we dinned over five nights in Rome. Service was... More

After such outstanding reviews and raves, I was very excited to get a table! We had the spaghetti carbonara and a porcini with squid dish. It was very average at best. The carbonara tasted like macaroni and cheese! The sauce was very thick, smooth and yellow. The porcini and squid was bland and also nothing special, not even homemade noodles.... 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.
