We spent relatively little and we took pasta with bottarga (fish), two dishes of ham and Italian cheese and three glasses of wine and we spent about 35€. The place is nice and service was friendly.

We ate at 730 and were the first to arrive. We enjoyed individual attention from the lady manager or owner who was very welcoming. She helped us understand the Italian menu on their blackboard. She asked if we would like something whilst waiting for the...More

The english speaking waitress suggested what we should have & in every dish, it was a perfect choice every time. The entire meal was outstanding and cost less than a good bottle of wine at most Rome restaurants.

From the outside, not notable and in a not so great area. That said, don't judge a book by its cover!!! Outstanding but unpretentious service in what appears to be a family run establishment. We had the grilled radichio Salad with melted cheese, walnut, and...More

The concierge at the Rome Cavalieri recommended this restaurant to us, since it was only a short walk from the hotel. The trattoria is very unassuming from the outside, but what a wonderful restaurant! Everything we ate was amazing! We had buffalo mozzarella, a salad,...More

Instead of going back home with a miniature David statue or a beer opener with the Pope's face on it, why not enjoy lunch or dinner at "Il Primo Sale" and bring back home a real souvenir - the memory of a genuine Italian meal....More

Really the only reason that we went to this restaurant was that it wasn't too far from our hotel, and we didn't want to have to journey back to the middle of Rome for dinner. But we were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is fairly small...More

Trattoria Primo Sale restaurant is a new addition to the Rome dining scene, a smart and welcoming place near the Piazzale Clodio. The chef/owner has gastronomy flowing through his veins, as his brother is the renowned chef of la Altro Mastai restaurant. In Trattoria Primo Sale, each course is split into two and at each juncture you can choose either traditional Roman dishes or the chef's own creations, inspired by Roman cooking but utterly innovative. Veer from the past to the present and back again - very much like a walk through Rome itself.
