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.

Trastevere has an abundance of lovely restaurants but we decided to look for something a little different with a focus on fish. Meridionale is located on a side street and inside you will the decor has a pleasant retro theme. We had the octopus and...potato starter which was amazing followed by tuna and sea bass respectively. Both delicious. Wine list is solid and the service excellent. Highly recommended.More

We made a reservation online for Sunday evening. We arrived at 7:30 and were seated promptly. For starters, we ordered caponatina siciliana and the tegamino al polpo, patate e pachino. Both were very tasty. This was followed by orecchiette cacio, cicoria e guanciale croccante and...fetuccine al ragú bianco di manzo e 'nduga. These were also very good; portions were generous. We didn't have room for any "secondi." The wine list offers numerous choices at reasonable prices. We had Forchir Ribolla Giallo 2018 and a Mesa Carignano del Sulcis Buio 2018. Service was very friendly and attentive. Our waiter spoke excellent English.More

We visited this lovely restaurant for dinner a few days before Christmas. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and made sure we felt looked after throughout the meal. The decor is stylish and quirky, with hundreds of vintage coffee pots on shelves around the...walls and retro Formica tables. The menu is simple, with a handful of starters, pasta dishes and mains to choose from as well as a selection of home made desserts. We had a delicious meal (the swordfish pasta was particularly memorable, as was the white beef ragu!) and we will definitely be back.More

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
