One of my favorite meals in Rome!! Had the cacio e pepe and loved it. My friends all got this pasta with white sauce and bacon and swear it was their favorite meal in Rome. Highly recommend this and you need to make a reservation.

I had the cacio e pepe which was one of the best I've ever had. It seemed like there were just locals in here. It was fresh pasta and the wine was good. The ambience was really good and I enjoyed this place a lot.

We visited this restaurant yesterday after recommendations by friends and we were somewhat disappointed... the place was so cramped (already tiny) that we could barely move. My friend had to ask other customers to get up in order to leave his seat. The food was overall ok, starters decent, the pasta dishes quite good but some fillets we ordered (with... More

Nice venue for a romantic meal. On the expensive side, but the service is great - my boyfriend even got a complimentary dish of truffle pasta that the waiter brought with a cheeky smile when he saw us looking at the plate of the people sitting next tu us. We were impressed!

It was recommended by a local. We managed to find it as it is not very turistic oriented. When in Rome do as Romans do! Reservation is reccommended.

We had a quick lunch, and the pasta porcini was magic. Really the best. Service was attentive and the atmosphere friendly. And not overpriced. 5* for value for money and the fantastic pasta!

It was our first night in Rome and we had a reservation at Le Mani in Pasta based on the recommendation from a friend who travels to Rome regularly. Upon arrival we were overwhelmed by the small room packed with people. We were seated quickly near the kitchen and then the magic began. The waiter was a delight and helped... More

We went to Le Mani in Pasta for my birthday dinner, and we were not disappointed. The food has flair and is cooked with heart... The atmosphere is small and friendly, though not quite intimate, as the place is not huge and it can get loud (doesn't everywhere in Rome? :) We enjoyed everything - food, atmosphere, wine. The staff... More

We had a lovely meal. 100 Euros for truffle pasta and seafood platter with wine and dessert. Delicious! You need to book or eat late.

The 4 of us ate here for a late afternoon dinner and were pleasantly surprised that the pasta was fantastic along with the house wine and bread plate. A simple meal that was tastefully cooked and presented to Americans visiting family in Trastevere. Excellente !!!!

Thank binno1

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
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.
