Sometimes I think celebrity chefs should quit visiting restaurants and giving "best ever" reviews. As we ate dinner here last night, at least two tables were gushing about Bourdain's review of the Cacio e Pepe. Then one lady ordered it, but wanted the dish without pepper!! OMG. American tourists. I did order the Casio e Pepe as it is favorite... More

Went to Travestere on our final day in Italy..had heard good reports of this restaurant, so thought we'd try it. Arrogent does not begin to describe the waiter. OK of you're awesome at your job. Not so good if you're mediocre. Didn't bother to write our order down, bought our food in the wrong order, and basically made us feel... More

We decided to have a dinner here based on Anthony Bourdain's review. Our meal was cacio e pepe and it was amazing. I definitely recommend you to visit this place in Trastevere, it's really easy to find and atmosphere is typically Roman.

Several people had told us to go and we were not disappointed! Make reservations or you won't get in. They are closed sun/mon. The signature dish was delightful and lived up to expectations. Couldn't even finish the whole Parmesan "bowl"! Also had and enjoyed the gnocchi with clams. Wine was perfect and priced on point. Staff was just SO cute.... More

We recently enjoyed a lunch a Ristorante Roma Sparita. We were smart to reserve a table ahead of time as that I saw no less than ten tables turned away because the restaurant was fully booked through dinner. To be honest we were there for the Cacia de Pepe (excellent) but the best surprise was the strength of the other... More

We went to Roma Sparita after it was recommended to us by an Italian friend. We had to book ahead and still had to wait. The place was packed and the space inside is reduced. Aside from that, the waiters are very friendly, so is the owner. The food was very nice, didn't take too long, and looked good :)... More

This place is famous for "spaghetti cacia e pepe. " there obviously are many versions of this very simple roman dish but I found this one rather unappetizing. It was WAY too salty and creamy and the cheese filigree bowl was soggy and unnecessary considering how salty the dish itself was. I know this place gets some rave reviews but... More

This was a highly recommended restaurant my husband had been looking forward to eating at due to Anthony Bourdain's ravings. As we arrived there were already couples waiting, young to old. Most had reservations but since we didn't we are inside (nice atmosphere.) the menu has many offerings and the wine list was by bottle only. We ordered an extra... More

We loved the Cacio & Pepper (the typical pasta of Rome that are made with cheese and black pepper) of this place. It's unique and different of all cause comes inside a cheese bowl tasteful and crispy! But, when we asked for a second pasta and asked for the waiter to make it without one of the ingredients he simple... 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.
