According to Google, you make a booking on Quandoo online, which I did for Valentine's dinner before leaving London. We walked all the way there with a booking reference number. The staff member I spoke to was rude and unhelpful. He was quite annoyed we interrupted him. He said there was no booking and it's not their problem, and that... More

I was in Rome with my family for a celebration, and I went to Le Mani in Pasta for the big day. I've been here before, such a good place. Wanted to ho back. The dishes just kept coming, great food. When in Rome, I will always come back here!

Located on a charming, narrow street in Trastevere, this is a trattoria worth persevering to find. Book in advance, go in a group if possible, and ask for the table on the mezzanine where you can see the kitchen in action, absorb the atmosphere, and there's the bonus of gazing down at the other diners' wonderful dishes. Order from the... More

I also had fresh fragolini ....so good ! Service is excellent even though it is always packed totally full of people. Our waiter Fausto was really nice,... More

We had a really good meal here: ravioli cacao e pepe followed by swordfish and with small free portions of pasta with truffle and pasta carbonara. Reasonably priced wine list; friendly service. It is a bit cramped but that's because it's popular with a mix of locals and tourists. Not fine dining but good honest food and service. Booking on... More

We had dinner here and thought the food was just okay. The service was good enough, ambiance was laid back and buzzy.. but we just weren't sufficiently impressed with the pasta (I think we ordered the cacio e pepe) and the tomato bufala that we ordered.

I had the best meal in Rome here. I was on my own and had been recommended to go here. Booking is recommended as it's very popular. Menu in English - staff speak SOME English and very friendly. I had the bresaola and mozarella starter - superb. Spaghetti Carbonara best I'vevever had. Light lemon sorbet dessert, excellent house red (La... More

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.

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.
