Eating in much of Rome is like eating in Times Square in NY…not good. But this isn’t an Italian thing, it’s the result of heavy tourism. There are a lot of really great places to eat in Rome, this, unfortunately, is not one of them....The prices are modest, which I appreciated, but the food was not very good. If you’re going to Rome, plan ahead and feel free to skip this place.More

Looked busy outside. Sat quickly inside. Very ordinary food. Small serving. Cost was cheap, but I guess you get what you pay for. Many better eateries in Trastevere.

We ate here for a quick lunch before going to the airport. The food did come quickly which was good given the time constraints. Me and my friend were sat down and had pizzas, it was nice, HOWEVER people in the restaurant were mocking us,...pointing, staring and laughing at us. We felt very uncomfortable. 2 staff members were fairly friendly but the other 2 were not at all welcoming (both were women with one being the person at the front seating people). If you are visiting in Rome do not go here if you don’t want to be laughed at and made to feel uncomfortable for being a tourist just trying to enjoy the food. We ate and left as quick as we could.More

We enjoyed very good lunch - delicious spaghetti carbonara and fresh and tasty insalata capriciosa. Combined with wine and home made cake. Fast and professional service . Selection of lunch menu. All for reasonable price. Big value for the money

We felt disappointed. A very crowded restaurant with very normal food. Nothing special. And the price we paid was expensive, very expensive. The quality of the food didn't worth that price. I don't recommend it to anyone.

Excellent food and service, a little bit crowdy, but possible find the table. Nice atmosphere. You can chose a meal or proposed complete menu( which includes antipasto, main dish, sweets) and it could be much for some people.

Fabulous food at amazingly low prices. A litre of local wine €9 less than the cost of a glass in the UK and tasted great. Great, honest low cost food yum

What a disappointment! The bruschetta was rock hard, so hard we struggled to cut it with a knife when it was too hard to bite. The lasagne was just pasta hardly any filling and was served Luke warm The saltimbocca all’s Romano was absolutely disgusting-...slimy pork swimming in grease/fat We were a party of four, it was our last night and we were so disappointed that our last meal was so poor especially when there are so many good restaurants about. The toilets are minging and tablecloths while we were there were just flipped over if they were dirty We made the staff aware of our disappointment with the food and were met with indifference and a shrug of the shoulders, we never leave a bad review but honestly give it a miss, there are nice clean restaurants to eat at and spend your money and your timeMore

We went here because of a recommendation. It was so disappointing. And I rarely say that about a restaurant in Italy. The good things were - it was cheap, and the pasta was ok. But just. However, the service was terrible. We weren’t the only...table who had to point out that we needed our order taken - after no attention of at least 15 minutes. And during that 15 mins we watched a lady beside us wait the same amount of time for her salad, while her companion sat with his hot meal in front of him. (She also had to chase the staff to get her food.) And when our food eventually came - the mozzarella in the middle of the Supplì was raw. Not cooked well at all. Wouldn’t go back.More

Rated 1 star, because it’s impossible to give a zero. Absolutely disgusting. Really loud, no air, rude staff. Was recommended by our airbnb host. Just aweful - rock hard brischetta, slimey griss meat, pizza that seemed to have come from the freezer isle at the...grocery store…More

We came in to this place on Friday evening - no reservation ofcourse. But staff found us a place outside, where we enjoyed couple of driks (beer 6 Eur, house wine 4 Eur, water 2 Eur) and delicious food - lasagme was awesome, like gnochi...with gorgonzola. We paid only 31,50 Eur.More

Trastevere
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
