About
“Meridionale” – the term in Italian used to all things from Rome and beneath its belt on the Italian peninsular. Given that every part of this country has its own style of cooking… we represent that southern half of the boot. The passion felt between the two owners Roberto and Massimiliano for the culinary experience is heartfelt – and that is why “Meridionale” will never fall short on flavour. The winning ingredients are a Neapolitan Chef with a passion for the southern tradition, a Roman Sommelier of Sicilian heritage, the vibrant atmosphere of Trastevere, one of Rome’s most authentic neighborhoods – and Dinner is served. At Meridionale one finds a well rounded menu to fit all preferences.

We popped in for a quick dinner without a reservation. We managed to get a table inside. The decor is quirky and kind of 60s inspired. The 2 waiters were very busy and a bit rushed but it clear they were working hard. The food...was delicious. We went for a simple pasta dish each but I couldn’t finish as it was good portion.More

At first we came to this restaurant because all the good ones in Trastevere were with long queues, except this one (such a coincidence right?). We kept waiting by the waiter (bold hair and eyeglasses on) at least 15 minutes, even though there were some...tables available. As soon as we sit we ordered straight away, a glass of wine, 2 beverages and a carpaccio (that costed the price of a main in the menu). As soon as we ordered that, this same waiter, in a very rude way said that “this is a restaurant” and we couldn’t stay if we were not ordering more food, inviting us to leave the premises. That’s ridiculous and completely unacceptable. We didn’t leave that time, we insisted in the order. That was our mistake! When the food came it was horrible, no taste of Italy like in the neighbourhood restaurants. Run from it or all you will find is rudeness!More

Good evening Let's start by saying that none of our staff has ever allowed to invite you to leave the place just because you only took one course .... maybe you thought it was a wine bar since you only ordered 1 glass of wine...More

Great food, especially if you’re looking to change it up from the traditional pizza and pasta. We tried the pistachio crumb tuna fillet and the almond sea bass, both were really tasty. Service was ok

Located a few streets away from the most crowded places. The place is very attractive with its vintage furniture and the food is excellent, especially if you love fish. Good selection of wines from Southern Italy. Friendly staff.

The seating and service were lovely in this restaurant tucked away in a less busy narrow street in Trastevere. But the real star was the food. The sea bass carpaccio especially was a standout. We were blown away by the flavors first of all, but...also by the price and portion. The house wine and the caponata were also standouts. We'll definitely be back the next time we're in Rome.More

This is one of my favourite go tos whenever I'm in Rome. The location and ambiance are lovely and the menu is always really interesting, though I generally go for the carbonara since it's the best one I've found in the city.

Spent a lot of time researching restaurants in Trastevere and this one did not disappoint in any way! Great, friendly, patient service! Food was just gorgeous!! Went for fish starter and main after having had enough pizza and pasta and the sea bass was on...fire - beautifully cooked and presented. The pasta was also good btw… Good value for money too, dont miss it!More
