We weren’t able to do reservations online but we went there on a weekday before noon and there was plenty of room. The food was good and reasonably priced. The service was fast and friendly. If you are in Trastevere and looking for a place...to eat, Tonarello is a place to try!More

When you travel eat local! Especially if the road leads you to Rome, or any other place in Italy, with such a huge culinary history and gastronomic tradition. In Rome food is literally everywhere, in every street, in every corner, near all famous city landmarks...and in small or out-of-the-way neighborhood. And believe me, the food is amazing. Tonnarello is one of these restaurants that keeps tradition alive, it offers homemade food, I imagine just like an Italian mom used to make it, or it definitely feels like that! It’s in Trastevere, one of the most beautiful, colorful, genuine and lively neighborhoods of the Italian capital, but not so crowded as the historic centre. We followed a friend’s advice to eat there and we weren’t disappointed in the least! It’s located at the end of a small, narrow cobbled street that ends up in an open space with charming outside seating. It wasn’t easy to choose from the menu as everything looked so delicious so we had the carbonara, meatballs “cioco e pepe” and pizza “boscaiola”. The carbonara was probably one of the best pasta I’ve ever had, homemade spaghetti but thicker, with egg and chunks of bacon and lots of parmesan cheese, served in a pan. The meatballs were huge, stuffed with cheese, covered in white sauce, with local greens and potatoes, also very tasty and colorful! Finally, the pizza served on a wooden cutting board was exactly what you expect an Italian authentic pizza should look and taste like: thin and crispy, perfectly baked, laden with mushrooms, mozzarella and sausage! We just couldn’t finish our dinner without an authentic Italian dessert, so we had tiramisu! It was so fresh, soft, creamy and super moist but also very light and flavorful! Everything looked, smelled and tasted fantastic! Service was exceptional, laid back and casual but prompt and with attention to detail! Our waiter Fabio, who actually spoke a little Greek, was a real professional! For To conclude, Tonnarello is absolutely recommended for a memorable, true Italian culinary experience, everything was great: the atmosphere, the food, service and prices! PS. free wifi is available!More

We went to Tonnarello for lunch to celebrate my daughter’s birthday. The food was amazing… we all tried different pasta dishes but the dish with mussels and pecorino was the best for me! Arsenio looked after us very well and made the lunch extra special...by bringing dessert with a fountain candle. Thank you Arsenio for helping make it a magical day!More

I had an awesome experience at Tonnarello. My boyfriend and I sat outside and even though it was cold the atmosphere was perfect for a romantic dinner. Our waiter Aman also contributed to make it great. He was very nice and polite and we appreciated...his great service. Definitely recommend this place, especially their cacio and pepe. It was DELICIOUS! They also offer gluten free options.More

We enjoyed our dinner at Tonnarello in an early evening in Trastevere. We came here a few times later in the day and the line was very long. We decided to try an earlier meal and scored a table right away. We started with the...fried artichokes, which were OK. We had a good meal with the highlight being the meatballs. Service was friendly (thanks, Roberto).More

Delicious! Trastevere is a fun district for dinner out and Tonnarello a great choice for this. Really tasty, hearty food - had a beautiful cheese and meat board, savoury pasta with polpette and tiramisu. Service was efficient.

Everything was perfect! The dinner was worth the waiting at the queue on a rainy evening. I ate the best carbonara I’ve ever had and a delicious pizza. We also tried fried artichoke but make sure you share meals as they are big! Our waiter...Aman helped us make the right choice on the wine. Thank you!More

Hi! Dont make the same mistake as we did; my friend and I waited in line to get a table, the ones that got a table first just attacked in front of the queue and didnt have to wait for 25 minutes like we did.

I will say again. Best carbonara I’ve ever had. Tamer talked my gf into getting the carbonara as well and she is very happy he did. Tamer deserves a huge raise for his efforts.
