We stumbled on the Baylon as we explored the district - immediately that atmosphere and the ambiance captured our thoughts. We ventured inside to be met by an extensive and rustic menu and outstanding bar. Staff very friendly and helpful, shared some small plates, a few drinks very reasonable for a Saturday - great atmosphere, would go back.

We stayed at the Trastevere Suites nearby and had our breakfasts at the Baylon. Nice athmosphere out in the street,quite calm, not much traffic. Youghurt with fresh fruit & honey is a bless. A variety of croissants. Personnel mostly friendly. Guests are a mix of licals and tourists. We enjoyed it.

We walked over 30 mins to get here for breakfast and we're not disappointed! Though a little pricey the food is fresh and the service is great. The 'Orange' juice is not to be missed! We ate the American breakfast which was lovely!

We walked by by this hip looking place amongst the more traditional type restaurants and gave it a chance. We each ordered a cocktail which were ok and then opted for the apperitivo food options. We recieved about 10 small tapas like dishes. About 5 if them i didn't like. They were tasteless and almost stale. I was so disapointed.... More

If you're going to serve something in the already-tired "deconstructed" style, it's important to know what it is you're deconstructing. The eggs Benedict my fidanzata ordered arrived in such a manner: rather than nesting under a duvet of soft yellow hollandaise on a split muffin, there were instead two bare watery, undercooked eggs exposed to the world, balancing on two...

We were walking around Trastevere and doing some shopping. We stopped at Baylon for lunch. My wife had the meat and cheese plate and I had the three pepper pasta. It was very good. A nice place to stop.

A really cool venue. Hip waiters serving delicious good value cocktails. Happy hour food offer was only 6 euros for a selection of tapas style dishes - we had the vegetarian choice and it was delicious. We sat outside where there was a small amount of seating. The interior was really funky too and it looked like this would be... 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.
