Inspired by Tradition, a combination of authentic Roman cuisine and a friendly service. The a la carte menue and fixed price menue are quite seasonal and include a Variation of Antipasti, pastas (try amatriciana), fish, meat, pizza sandwhiches, and last not least home made dessert, ample wine list.

A wonderful experience! As others have said the outside appearance is understated and might scare people away. Don't let that fool you. Food was excellent for the price and service was prompt but not rushed. It was a Monday and only about half full. Perfect after being elbow to elbow all day with tourists.

Marco G is kind of hidden in the Trastevere area that is flooded with restaurants and cafes. We were in Rome for 7 days and this was hands down the best restaurant we ate at. Do yourself a favor and check it out.

Given that Italian pasta is on every corner and its a must skill for every respectful chef, this place was totally ok. Yes, the pasta was good, service not so good so I don't get whats the fuss about this one. I wouldn't come back to this place.

This is the second time ive been here as the friend I was travelling with is obsessed with this place. It's nice. Helpful, friendly staff, tasty food, great atmosphere. For me, to get 5 stars the food must be sublime. Really good though and definitely not you tourist trap, special €10 menu kind of meal.

We went twice during our recent stay in Rome. The staff were fantastic and the food was superb. I can especially recommend the carbonara and it was gluten free as well.

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.
