We spent a nice evening in this restaurant last weekend, and we really liked the original ambiance and welcoming staff. Compared to some other touristy restaurants in the same neighborhood (Trastevere), this one provided more home-touch and personal feeling to us, even playing the music...More

We discovered Il Tarallo while exploring the lanes near Piazza di Santa Maria in Trastevere. The owner and server were welcoming, attentive, and helpful. The lunch menu offers a wide variety of reasonably priced choices. We split a plate of fresh veggies that were grilled...More

Serves pasta and other meat dishes - no pizza. Food is very well prepaired and the hostes is a treat! Ravioli portions good be bigger, but the taste is massive!

Good service and simple food that was tasty. Good atmosphere but not right in the hustle and bustle.

This place is a bit off the beaten path from the main square of restaurants but it's worth it. The food was amazing as was the service. We went with the dinner special and a bottle of wine. The server helped us narrow down our...More

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

A little pearl in the heart of trastevere in a warm atmosphere, one can taste the typical italiana cuisine specializing in fish and meat dishes. Il tarallo allegro is also a wine tasting bar with a wide range of italian wines.
