We wandered into this restaurant and it was full, (always a good sign) but they squeezed us in anyway. Mmmm, don’t quite know what to make of the accolades the restaurant is receiving on Tripadvisor. Always a favourite, we ordered the olive all’ascolana, which were average at best. For mains the chicken with Romano sauce, was my choice - the... More

Excellent little neighborhood restaurant, made famous by Anthony Bourdain for its Cacio e pepe. Its in Trastevere, which is a nice quiet neighborhood away from the tourist throngs. Worth the trip over. Lots of good stuff on the menu, but the Cacio e pepe is the typical Roman dish it is famous for. Also had baby strawberries in cream for... More

Great REAL Italian cuisine without superficial details, good traditional comfort food, great quality of the produce honest good flavors, good portions, a typical old family owned restaurant I believed. You might need to make a reservation it is usually difficult to get in without one. It should not be missed on your visit to Rome. Lots of locals not that... More

The only bad thing about this place is the fact that it's too hot inside in the summer. Other than that, everything is perfect - the staff, the food, the atmosphere. Cacio e pepe was one of the best meals I've had.

Excellent setting, menu and staff. Known for its Cacio de Pepe, but not the best of our visit. It is served uniquely in a Parmesan cheese bowl. It lacked the level of pepper of better offerings. The menu has plenty of variety, but small portions.

Great evening.... first night in Roma, we discovered the Trastavere area and loved it. It is living, moving, it is different than the other Roma touristic areas. The restaurant Roma Sparita is a friendly cosy litlle place. The waiter was just perfect, he did a great selection of typical roman's meal and we enjoyed it. Well to be perfectly honnest... More

We were visiting friends in Rome and they took us to this restaurant. What an amazing experience! The waiter was very attentive without being intrusive and every course was spectacular. Please pay a visit to this restaurant when in Rome.

What a hidden gem . We were the only Americans in this fabulous restaurant . The cacio e Pepe was beautifully presented and so delicious in the Parmesan bowl. My husband & I split the special bisceta with artichokes and Parmesan cheese and the flavors were tantalizing ! Prices very reasonable. When we return to Rome we will definitely return!

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

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.
