When we went, we were probably the only Italians in the restaurant. The food quality is not bad, but I guess locals know better places to eat. Prices are medium high. Not my first choice when I go back.

A restaurant without much to attract you to but if you want to taste real Roman food, this is the place. Good unusual Roman dishes. Do not miss especially the Carciofo and the Cacio e Pepe. Take my advise

It was good - in fact great. The Cacio e Pepe was definitely the showcase dish, but equally matched by the Pasta Alla Matriciana and the Carciofi all Giudia. Colleagues were blown away both by the quality and the service. Happened to catch an informal concert at the adjacent Santa Cecilia Church. Reservations a must!

The place is so good it is difficult to get a table without reservation. Enjoy the atmosfere, the service and of course the food. From entries (especially the carciofi alla giudiaca), to pasta (do not miss the best tagliolini cacio e pepe in Rome and over 6 tones served in a year), mains (abbacchio alla scotta dito) and desserts. The... More

This restaurant is very typical for Roman cuisine. I went a few times and I was always treated very well. Food is fantastic and I really advise for the artichokes that here are special!

I tried cacio e pepe at another restaurant on our first night in Rome and was not really impressed. I heard this restaurant and the best and I have to say it was phenomenal. We walked about 20 minutes out of our way just to go here for that and it was worth the trip! Service was friendly. The place... More

Anthony Bourdain chose this as his feature restaurant in Rome and with reason. It doesn't get more quintessential roman than this. Tradition, location and quality come all rolled into one at this Trastevere jewel. Their ''cacio e pepe'' sets the standards for all others to follow. In the summer the outside tables on the square of Santa Cecilia are fought... More

Visited this restaurant when in Trastevere for lunch. It was very busy inside, mostly with locals. Had a fantastic meal, buffallo mozzarello starter, pasta with cheese and pepper in a parmesan basket and an awesome panna cotta to finish. The staff were courteous and friendly. We paid 56e for 3 course for 2 people.

Thank Tyezer

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.
