Good local food

Great place to try traditional Rome dishes. It's fairly big and packed, with just a few cm separating tables. We ate there twice during our stay in Rome. There are no menus but the waiting staff can explain the day's specials in English. Antipasti, pasta carbonara or with sauces from various... read more

I went there last Friday to celebrate the end of a course I took. The whole class went, so we had a group of 18 people. We opted for the 25€ per person menu, and it was a good choice. The food was good - not the best food I have had in Rome, but quite good. I did not... More

I was staying nearby and had this place recommended to me but every time I walked by it looked dead. Finally decided to go in and give it a go and found out everyone was in the courtyard out the back and I should've made a booking! Because I was alone, they made a place for me. The lovely waitress... More

This place is so authentic! Funny waiters and genuine roman food will make you understand how a real trattoria feels, without the touristic ring. Worth a visit especially if you like meat or fresh pasta.

We went here after our guesthouse owner suggested it, and we understand why. It's very traditional and rustic. The owner came and sat with us and discussed the menu (in English). We told him we were wanting to try traditional roman food. My partner asked for the Ox tail pasta and I was told I would enjoy the sweet breads... More

We were many, we ate a lot, spending 25 EUR each, and everything was good - apart from the wine "maison", but it's normal in such typical roman restaurant.

I had dinner with a group of friends one night in this typical Roman "trattoria". Here you can find some typical Roman dishes such as the "pajata". The atmosphere is definitely not formal (no suit and ties, absolutely!!!), it's a great place to go with friends. There is no written menu, one of them will come and list all the... More

Many people talk about this trattoria in Rome... ..The result is that I found a real (..A bit forced) effort in being unconventionally rough trendy that fascinates in a way. The decor is kind of deliberately bare and the table arrangement leaves very small space for manoeuvre. The service is efficient but once again intentionally spartan with direct questions and...

Betto and Mary is the name on the bill - the address is the same as above. Care clearly needs to be taken because it is not the same restaurant as Mejo Betto and Mary. This rather rustic restaurant is not in the centre of town (Filarete - 10 stops out on the bus from Termini), but if you are... More
