I had a great evening at the restaurant. I loved the food, the wine and the atmosphere. The waiters are all really nice and super helpful if you need a recommendation for food or wine. Definitely would go there again!

Brilliant! Great staff, who could not be friendlier. The atmosphere is superb with music and laughter. We were in Rome For a couple of days and found the place by accident but went back to finish our evening on the second night.

Stopped by on our first night in Rome. Took a table in the street even though it was a bit chilly. Service was prompt and friendly. Waiter explained the various draft beers to me and i chose Peroni Rosso. Very enjoyable. We stayed for over...an hour. Called back a couple more times during our stay, actually in the bar as the weather was awful! Bar is wonderfully ramshackle in a good way. All the staff were incredibly friendly with a good command of English. Did not eat in the bar but people at another table ordered the burgers and the meals looked gigantic.More

Worst coffe in town. Food is ridiculously bad and also overpriced! Very poor quality of service. We had “english breakfast”… well a fried egg was presented. Disappointing!

I’ve never learned to fully appreciate the European pastry and coffee for breakfast method. Fortunately in Rome we found the Baylon Cafe a short walk from the place we were staying. We ended up coming every morning for good coffee and I had the American...breakfast (complete with fruit topped pancake) and my husband had the English breakfast with meat, which he thoroughly enjoyed! This became the well fueled start of each day as we set out on foot, walking between 6 and 8 miles each day. Service is friendly and almost everyone spoke English. We did not try any other meal here but breakfast, however the breakfasts were warm and filling as well as tasty.More

We popped her for breakfast on our first morning in the city and was greeted by friendly staff. The cappuccino was great - especially with soya milk! We even popped back the next day for a takeaway coffee.

If your considering popping in here as we did for evening food and a drink I certainly wouldn't! Firstly restaurant freezing with door open... Bin infront of counter??? Looks like one that should be on the street! I ordered pasta as I am in Italy...cold and simply tasteless.. My husband asked for the well done steak which was served rare to medium.. with crisps not chips. Very poor overall from service,food to toilets.More

We shared Parmeggiana di melanzane and porchetta as starters which were both amazing. Maybe one of the best parmeggianas I ever had. The main of costata di manzo left much to be desired. Completely under seasoned and some parts were quite tough. Still finished it...and did not complain as I do not like to waste food, especially when an animal died to provide the meal. Service was not amazing even though our server was very nice but lacked basic understanding on how to serve clients. Most probably due to lack of training as he made us feel welcomed and was quite entertaining but as I said before, lacked basic service skills. Bill was quite ok considering all the above. Provide better training to your staff and PLEASE treat meat better than you do and it would be a 5 star. Maybe it was a bad day, maybe not... Would return to try the rest of the starters for sure if I lived close by.More

Loved it. I wish I could remember our bartender's name, but he was a true mixologist. Drinks were great. It was my go-to spot for a late night drink and pastry.

Visited with wife and 2 kids, tried a couple of pasta dishes and a salad. All were fairly good, price was average for a tourist area. I'd rate it with 5 stars if the tagliatelle with truffle was a larger portion and less oil on...the bottom. Overall, a good choice.More

After a week in Rome, you just want a burger, right? Go here! Great service and beer, too. The house-made potato chips are kinda fantastic!

We had an enjoyable coffee and wine pause in the afternoon. Good place to momentarily relax in Travastere. Service was good.

We popped in for our last taste of food and wine in Rome and had a good experience, unfortunately they ran out of most desserts but we had a Pistachio ice cream in the end.

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
