The prices are good and the food is fairly tasty. The location is very good. Actually, in its area there are a lot of good restaurants.

We had the same experience as another review below "rude staff, wouldn't even seat us". Stood there waiting for a couple of minutes, the staff ignored everyone standing there. We asked one of the waiters aboat a table, and he just said "inside" and dissapeared. We went to the restaurant next door "al Drago" and had a lovely dinner! Actually,... More

We stopped by for lunch on our last day in Rome. It took a very long time to get our food. When it arrived, it was ok but not up to par with similar meals. The service was not great and our server left midway through the meal after we had asked for another drink. It took us a while... More

I think, it is the best trattoria in Rome! We were 3 times. The meals are very delicious. It is not "turist" restaurant! It is secluded location, it is really authentic Italian cuisine! It is not cheap :) Dolce vita!!!!

We loved Trastevere and this restaurant looks beautiful from the outside. It was busy but there were some tables free. We stood at the right place waiting for the staff to greet or seat us for a good 5 minutes. Several different members of staff came our way but completely ignored us, didn't even say hello or ask us to... More

We found this place after being told that several others were booked. I'm so glad we ended up stopping here. The food was great, and the wine was cheap and delicious. We had bruschetta (the bread was a little tough) and I had the carbonara which was incredible. Would definitely go here again.

Simple fare, done well. Grilled fish was especially good. Other dishes average. Decent house wine. Inelegant but quite pleasant and welcoming. Good shaded outdoor dining in nice piazza with water-spray cooling that was better than at most other similar restaurants. We missed the cold antipasti indoors, which looked as if it would have been quite good

We came across this restaurant by accident after a long day at the Collesseum. It was very busy and we were told the wait was 25 minutes or ten minutes if we could take a table in the sun which was not an option as it was 37 degrees. We waited in the shade opposite and were rewarded with a... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighborhood Profile
Trastevere
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.
