Description: Giving always attention to meet the changing course of the latest trends...
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.

Very lovely evening

I did a lot of research before picking restaurants for our three nights in Rome, and I finally decided to make reservations here and one other place. We were not disappointed! We ate here on our first night in town so we ate a bit early for Italians -- at 8 pm. The restaurant was pretty empty with... read more

Pretty outdoor setting, great manageable menu( lot of options but not overwhelmingly big), in english as well since they just opened a ;location in Brooklyn. Very attentive service. Locals plus tourists.More upscale than other restaurants in Trastavere.

True Roman fate. Great atmosphere in the Trestevere area. Food was wonderful and they worked with us on food for one of our group with allergies. Great atmosphere and huge wine list. Would recommend to any family member.

The framed pictures with all these celebrities didn't impresse me because the food was below average (maybe they feed celebrities with different food). The "sommelier" was ignorant (He left a huge catalogue and he had no idea what to suggest). The fuss hurt my ears. Absolutely not value for Money

This restaurant was recommended by a business colleague. It was well worth the visit and the meal was lovely although as a vegetarian there was not much on the menu for me. Luckily I am not vegan as I had the Rome speciality of pasta, ricotta and parmesan cheese. Lovely but very rich. My husband thoroughly enjoyed his Trippa and... More

Our only evening in Rome and last night of a three-week European trip were perfectly capped off with our dinner at Antica Pesa. A very unassuming exterior hides a classic Italian interior that winds back, past walls of photographs of the owners with all of today's major movie icons who have visited, to the dining areas filled with tables that...

We waited 40 minutes for our reserved table, no chance to get the table. Instead of an apology Very arrogant restaurant manager tried to teach us that it is usual to... More

We went to Antica Pesa in Trastevere for dinner on a Saturday night. The Restaurant has a more traditional atmosphere, with ample space to dine inside and in a beautiful covered patio where we had our dinner. The wine cart is large, comes in a book that looks like an encyclopedia or a bible, and we were able to find... 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.
