This review is part of 7 other reviews in Rome October 2016. The reason is simple. All restaurants were similar in 2 ways. The price level were similar. Between 7-15 euro for antipasta (starter). 10-15 euro for primo (pasta), and 15-25 for secondi (meat/fish). Furthermore all restaurants serves traditional Italian food. So by comparing the reviews you can pick out... More

Better take pasta, not beef steak. Beef meat was tough, it definitely not a steak meat. Pasta was OK.

We had to wait to be allowed into our accommodation on arrival in Rome, which was round the corner. We had lunch and two bottles of local white all was great. What a lovely little spot.

Simple restaurant with a limited number of Roman dishes, but delicious. Don't miss the pasta la gricia. We had a rabbit dish that was very tasty. On Thursday's they have a special gnocchi dish, so we are planning to be back then! No credit cards accepted.

Here you will get Itaian cuisine like the locals. I can recommend the rabbit, and on saturdays they serve Tiramisu.

Recommended by some guidebooks, "Da Lucia" is placed away from the tourist paths in charmingly Mediterranean Trastevere. The outdoor area, where we seated, is not spectacular but interior is very traditional and worth of visiting. The menu is good representative of traditional Roman cuisine of the poor (cucina povera), in the terms of it's extent (very limited list of meals,... More

We ate here two nights in a row while in Rome (my six-year-old daughter Lucia insisted on it, after she devoured her bombolotti with oxtail on the first visit -- and who am I to disagree). A solid trattoria with good house wine and delcious pasta. Probably worth making a reservation if you want to sit outside (recommended) but it... More

I have often been to this restaurant. It's just off the beaten track, behind the "hustle and bustle" of Trastevere. Roman style food. Enjoy sitting outside in streets that have seen a lot of history.

It is hard to find a quiet and cozy place in Travestere on Friday night where you could enjoy a magnificient meal, but this was like a pearl in the sea! Me and my sister didn't know where we could reserve the spot for the dinner that night, so were going and looking for a nice place that would also... More

Came here on recommendation of a local, and we were not disappointed. Rabbit, veal, oxtail stew, carbonara and trips alla Romana all bursting with flavour. Tiramisu divine. Very "Silver Spoon"

Thank Vincent Y

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.
