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 !!!!

The place is not so special, but the staff is attentive and the pasta I had, porcini w garlic and parsley was one of the best I ever had.

Food was pretty good, but a large party showed up half way through our meal and got the entirety of the waitstaffs attention. The table next to us was used to clear their dishes the food took forever to come and the bill took 25 minutes to come after we continually pleaded with the waiter to bring it.

Lots of locals here. Excellent seafood specials. The steaks are also quite good - my son had one. You must call for a reservation, your chances of getting a table as a walk-in are not good. We were there at low season and it was packed fortunately we booked a table a week or two in advance. The pasta gricia... More

Hands down the best pasta in Rome. Small and casual spot in neighborhood across the river. Great service. Fantastic prices with most pasta dishes around 10 euros. Best Carbonara ever. Cacio e Pepe fantastic. See pics. Run to this place and enjoy.

This restaurant is located in Trestavere, area south of the river and south of Vatican. While it is not that close (think 40 minutes walk from city centre) or convenient to get to (unless you opt for a cab or master local bus network), it is certainly worth the extra effort. We've had daily special, tagliatelle with white truffles to... More

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.
