Best restaurant visit ever. We had this restaurant recommended by some friends and we were so lucky to get a table at new years eve. Our friends told us that we should not choose something from the menu, we should ask them to make us a 4 meal dinner with dishes they would recommend. The menu for new years eve... More

My boyfriend and I have visited Rome at october. This resturant is small, yet romantic, and the service is great. You have to make a reservation as they're full every night during the autumn.

My family and I spent Christmas Eve at Hostaria La Botticella and we had an absolutely wonderful time! There was a special menu for the holiday that included a delightful seafood salad and a delicious Risotto. We were treated to lots of wine and prosecco too. The food was all outstanding, only topped by the warm and gracious service. At... More

Five years ago, my then-pregnant wife and I were treated to a wonderful meal by the warm and generous Giulia and her staff. A week later we came back and she remembered us and exactly what we ordered. Five years later, with our 4.5 year old daughter (named Roma) and baby son along with us, Giulia and her staff are...

We dined here tonight as a family of 5: two adults, three children. Having selected La Botticelli after all of the stellar reviews, we were not disappointed. The staff was warm, welcoming, attentive. Food was delicious, we ordered gnocchi, carbonara, arribiatta, sea bass and steak. Each dish on its own was terrific. Pace yourself -portions are large. Desserts and Limoncello... More

This is a very typical restaurant in Travestere in a more quiet place than the other restaurants. The scenery is very nice and the food very tasty. Very good option away from the more touristy places in Travestere.

Top notch home recipes in a family style setting. Though a bit small, you're not the bit bothered as the atmosphere is about the food. Excellent choices though I highly recommend the Caccitora and Saltimboca dishes. Absolutely fantastic. Be sure to make reservations. It is extremely popular with the locals.

We walked over to Trastevere to visit Santa Maria and found many reasons to linger there. We were walking by this quaint cafe when the wait staff greeted us warmly. We checked out the menu and decided to eat there. LOVELY! Great wine, pasta, meatballs and dessert. Do NOT miss this place for lunch or dinner!

We stayed a hotel near this restaurant. When we went there, there was no table available. We made a reservation came back next day. We tried Vongole pasta and it was very delicious. Staffs were friendly and food was delicious. We miss their food.

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.
