We arriving in Rome, travelled to Trastevere and having to wait for checkin I looked up restaurants in the immediate area on Tripadvisor. Osteria Pistoia was recommended both by Tripadvisor and our apartment representative. We were welcomed at Osteria Pistoria with a glass of Prosecco. The pasta plates were very good and the wine was acceptable.. We requested a bottle... More

My girlfriend and I have just returned from a meal at Osteria Pistoia. Overall, the service was the worst we have come across in Rome, and the food was average at best. We arrived at around 9:30 and were served pretty promptly which we were happy with. Come 10:20, we were approached by the same waiter who said he forgot... More

by accident I entered this restaurant and I was impressed. The waiter recommended the beef and it was perfect. The potatoes were delicious. The chef came to the table to ask. I didn't order a dessert just because I didn't want to spoil the beef experience. But I did order a grappa, a white one, and it was really great.

Great food but the service was very poor. I'm hoping that this had nothing to do with the fact that we were not locals but it certainly came across that way. It took someone close to 10 mins to come and take our drinks order even when it wasnt particularly busy, and especially considering that the party next to us... More

We, my girlfriend and i, were for 5 days im Rome. We were living in a hotel in Trastevere near to the Osteria Pistoia. We chose the Pistoia because it was the nearest Restaurant to us and it's appearance was very appealing. We then didn't know how good we would eat there. Not only that the dishes were delicious but... More

Whilst In Rome for 4 days we we're sick of the main plazas fighting for your custom to serve below average food. And then just off the main drag this place. Refreshing menu,good staff and no hassle. Perfect

We arrived very early for dinner, and they accommodated us with charm and grace. The menu was interesting and varied, with great options in all courses, and many specials. The service was helpful and pleasant, and the food beautifully presented with a delicate simplicity of flavours to match. A carpaccio of raw fish was wafer thin and dressed so that... More

After a couple of years we came back to this neighborhood restaurant and we were still very happy with what we ate. The beef carpaccio is excellent, if a bit salty, and the pasta cacio e pepe very tasy. Service is also a plus with very friendly staff.

I visited this place several times ove the last couple of years. At the beginnig I was skeptical about the possibility of finding such a restaurant in such a place... too much off the beaten track... but there it is... excellent.They prepare different dishes from teh traditional Roman Osteria and with great succes.

Staying in Monteverde

Neighborhood Profile
Above the city on the Janiculum hill, Monteverde is Rome’s popular "getaway" neighborhood, coveted for its greenery. Rome's largest urban park, Villa Pamphili, is the area's centerpiece with affordable prices and peace and quiet. Monteverde is just far enough away from the center to feel like you’re on a Roman holiday and close enough to feel the lure of Rome's chaos. Though its downside is the lack of scheduled public transport, this family-oriented area is literally a well-deserved walk in the park.
