Totally relaxed, tiny restaurant with incredible food and classy decor. Booking is essential and a few days in advance at that! Started with nibbles Moved to pasta Then shared a few mains - steak, grilled squid, seasonal artichoke Finished with home made deserts Service was as its supposed to be - friendly knowledgeable and making you want to return!

Our group of 4 was very pleased, with both visits. The Cacio e Pepe is a must, so is the Tripe. Outdoor or indoors, the space is warm and welcoming and the service is prompt and exacting. Not one of my best meals in Rome, but always a very solid choice when staying in Trastevere. An easy place to recommend... More

Enjoyed this restaurant in January 2013 when we celebrated our daughters 21st with her Roman host family. The local family were so surprised we found such an authentic Roman restaurant. Off course when back in Trastevere we had to return and struggled to get a booking. The night before our flight back to Melbourne was our celebration dinner and we... More

authentic roman food in the heart of Trastevere. Best Cacio e Pepe I ever had. It was served in an eatable parmesan bowl. Also the location is very nice, especially in summer.

This is one of the best meals of my life. The service was excellent and the dishes recommended by our waiter were incredible. Everything was unbelievably good. I can't wait to return to Rome to visit again!

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

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.
