We knew we were in for a treat when we saw several customers go into the open kitchen and kiss the chef. It's a small tight space but so full of character and atmosphere that you want to spend as much time as you can. My artichoke salad with thin slices of Parmesan was outstanding! We shared a lobster pasta... More

Our number #1 ranked restaurant in Rome. A little hard to find, but the food was delicious and the service was great. Will dine here again in my next visit to Rome.

This restaurant was highly recommended by friends and it lived up to its reputation. The service and food was excellent---extra dishes kept flowing. It's traditional Italian at its best. We would highly recommend this place to our friends

I travel to Rome regularly and always make sure to stop by this restaurant. The Sea Bream Carpaccio with black truffle and buttered white toast is like nothing else, followed by the Porcini Mushroom pasta which is the best I have ever had, anywhere. Waiter suggestion for a nice medium price Brunello, what more is there! The other standard Italian... More

We were in Rome for one night and were fortunate enough that they squeezed us in without a reservation. We had a table near the kitchen and was able to experience what a well run restaurant this is. The chef is a master and is truly loved by his customers for the quality of food and his passion. The staff... More

Read about this place from a blog and decided to try it out. We didn't have a reservation and had to wait an hour in the cafe next door. We had today's special for 2, I think it was tortellinis (it's been a month so not sure...). What I do remember is that I was good and the restaurant was... More

Usually the food in Rome is great, but the service sometimes is very poor! If you like the pasta or simply the fish I highly recommend you this place!

Delicious food. We could only get a reservation in the 'smoking area' but were thoroughly relieved to find that nobody was smoking. Definitely worth a visit before exploring the vibrant trastavere.

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.
