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

A nice place, good atmosphere and good service. The prices are very good and the lasagna is great. House wine is decent, for 3.5€ for 1/2lt. We felt good, eat right and had fun. Nice place

A bit boor service, unproductive, had to even ask to be seated after standing outside quite a while. Pannacotta wasn't good.

Nice and warm welcome from the blonde waitress that tries to bring an upper level to the service. She's very nice though :) Anyway, we had Carbonara and Cotoletta Milanese. Too much cheese on top of Carbonara but I understand otherwise pasta wouldn't be tasty at all. Cotoletta was hard to cut. I am Italian and if you are tourists,... More

It is obvious from reading the menu on the exterior wall that this is not a five star restaurant, so why dine there if that is what you want? I found it to be as good as any of the restaurants in this picturesque area and perfectly OK for dinner. The food, prices and service were good. The courtyard tables... More

Avoid it. The quality of the food is the lowest in town. We ate Fish and pizza and it was simply disgraceful. There is so much quality in Roman restaurant nowadays, it is a pity to end up in this place.

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.
