“Wonderful local trattoria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2011

This restaurant was right beneath our rental apartment. It was crowded with locals every night and having dined there we fully understand why. The food was really wonderful: tasty, genuine and very good value. Service was excellent and a friendly welcoming atmosphere. I would find it difficult to fault and we wished we could have eaten there more often but ran out of time. One of the best meals we had in Rome and far better than most in the area.

“Our favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2011

We loved this tiny little restaurant near the Pantheon! It's down a little side street and you would never spot it if not looking for it. The waiter sang while he brought us our food - scooping out the pasta directly from the pan and providing each of us with a taste of each other's meal. Delightful!

“Not a tourist restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011 via mobile

Great place on a small street just near pantheon. Great food- really great, cacio pepe is as good as you'll get anywhere. Everything we had was done well and the half bottle of house red was tasty and only 4 euro. Great value and a great place if ur into A genuine roman restaurant.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2011

Everything about this restaurant was perfect. It is around the corner fromthe Pathenon but it is hidden from tourists so you get mostly locals who care about quality and at Osteria Del Sostengo they deliver.

The atmosphere is nice and relaxing and the service was very attentive but not pushy.

The food was delicious. My pasta dish was perfectly flavored with tomatoes and white light sauce white the lamb was cooked to perfection and some how the had the best potatoes I've ever had in my life. To top it off the tiramisu was perfect capper to go with great food and a nice bottle of wine.
