Not ideal for a solo traveller or someone who needs a decent sized meal. I was moved partway through my dinner to accommodate a small family. Happy to do so, although the staff were very awkward about it. A lot of attention drawn to the fact I had to move tables with no compensation. Instead, there are hidden costs. An... More

Amazing food, excellent service. Took my family here on their first visit to Rome. The cacio e Pepe was phenomenal, even better than I imagined. Good wine, and a great waiter made the night a success.

Was really impressed, went here based on Anthony Bourdain and it was one of the nicest meals I had. Cacio e Pepe is amazing. Kids had pizza which was really good. We had Zucchini Flowers in Batter to start they were delicious. Wine list was very good with reasonable prices. Deserts Beautiful and found the service and staff really nice.... More

Like everyone one else probably, my wife and I are big fans of Anthony Bourdain, and try to visit places he goes to. We are experienced travelers and have traveled all over the world, so I have no bias towards any person or place. We were actually in town visiting a good friend of ours. This place is a little...

This was a recommend from a friend. We weren't sure what to expect. Great service, great wine and the food was fantastic! Cacio e Pepe. Best yet in all of Roma! Visit Santa Cecilia next door.

Like many of you, we wanted to try Roma Sparita after watching No Reservations by Anthony Bourdain. We enjoyed the experience and wanted to share a few pros and cons: Pros - Ironically, you can make reservations here. This was really helpful with our trip planning. - Beautiful restaurant tucked away on the edge of Trastevere. The restaurant has a... More

We arrived right at 12:30 to beat the anticipated rush. Sure enough by 1:00 tables were filling up with locals and tourists. Friends recommended this restaurant to us and we are glad we made the walk for lunch after a tour of the colosseum. It's tucked away in a quiet quaint spot. We ordered the house specialty-calcio et pepe which... More

This restaurant is great. You find it on a piazza where there are not that many people. The people working there are great. I loved the pasta and melon. The place is very busy. We didn't get any bread, but we still paid for it. I think they forgot. Other than that it was amazing

If you like Calcio e Pepe pastas (one of Rome's specialties) you will be thrilled! Served in a parmesan crust it's Rome very best (but then again I didn't visit all restaurants in Rome!!). The rest of the food (had scaloppine) is not bad but you really want to visit for their Cacio e Pepe!! Dessert was not bad (panacotta)... 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.
