At the end of my meal, I was so amazed, I made reservations to return the very next day! This hidden jewel, on the tip of Trastavere, is true Roman food. Every flavor was clean, impeccable, hand made, and delicious. The service is great, helpful, and English friendly. We had a wonderful night! A taxi can drop you off right... More

We visited Marco G's early on a weeknight. The outside area was full, so we ate inside. It was nicely decorated and bright, and not so deep that we couldn't still see the street. The food was delicious, freshly made and nicely presented. We had a pasta special with tomatoes and asparagus, and a pasta with pepper. The panna cotta... More

We were strolling one hot June afternoon down Via Garibaldi when we stopped at Marco G's. Lunch was so incredible. Marco told us about the fresh buffalo mozzarella and fresh became the describing word for Marco G's. As he said, "Here we cook simple and fresh." The next night we returned with more people for dinner. Marco served us as... More

After a night out at the very posh Mirabelle we decided that we need a change, something less stiff - but with more taste. We consulted the Concierge at our Hotel (Majestic = beautiful) and were recommended other "Mirabelle-style" restaurants. Therefore I went to the room and wrote down the first 20 tripadvisor listings for restaurants in Rome, went down... More

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.
