I have had the great pleasure to work and live in Rome for more than seven years. As you can imagine, I have had a chance to eat in countless restaurants in the city and throughout the country. This said, I would strongly suggest having lunch or dinner at Da Cesare! The restaurant is located somewhat away from the historical... More

We picked this restaurant because I'd seen a blogger giving it a recommendation, and the TA reviews were good. It is fairly near to the A Roma hotel that we were staying in, but seemed to have a better reputation than the more local restaurants to the hotel. So glad we went because the service and the food was fab.... More

We met some friends here for dinner, who live in Rome and this was certainly a highlight of our trip. We have been to Rome several times and we love to eat well but have been disappointed at many restaurants before. The quality of the food here is really high end (fine dining) yet the place is casual and comfortable... More

Trattoria de Cesare is not a tourist trap restaurant, it is safely tucked away in suburbia and nowhere near anything remotely touristy. The restaurant does get busy with locals, from couples to families and friends, making it very vibrant. It specialises in Roman cuisine and every dish we chose was delicious. For starters we had the polpettes, these were so... More

Enjoyed practicing our limited Italian and staff was fun to converse with. They made great recommendations and we enjoyed everything we ate - from the amazing fried gnocchi... More

I had a dinner with some friends at Trattoria da Cesare. We had some fiori di zucca and salumi misti as entrants. Then some of us got a first dish (carbonara, gricia o sugo di coda) and others got a second dish (trippa and vitello alla cacciatora). The waiter was attentive and the food was good. Nothing too special but... More

I read a review in a gourmet magazine about this place months ago, and it was supposed to be the best in rome, per chefs and foodies. Well, IT IS! We had the most wonderful meal and I can still taste the gnocchi! Everything was perfection and delicious. the oxtail pasta was a family favorite, we kept stealing it from... More

Trattoria De Cesare had been recommended to us so we made reservations, took a cab ( for it is out of the way ) and were looking forward to a fantastic meal and dining experience. Maybe it was an off night or maybe we made a few wrong choices from the menu. Our server was extremely unattentive, acting like this... More

If you are looking for Italian food done traditionally and properly then you have come to the right place. I would eat here everyday if I could. The waiters are not arrogant, they are professional and know what they are talking about. It is not a place where they pander to the clients.

A bit hidden this place offers a great variety of traditional Roman food. The appetizer are unique and particular must try the fried gnocchi and the pizzottelle. They offer a small selection of pasta but the most traditional one, I tried the gricia and it was delicious. Also the main courses and desserts were very tasteful. If In the city... More
