Ivo is a simple and traditional pizzeria in the heart of Trasterver serving authentic Roman-style pizzas. So, I wouldn't go to this place for anything else other than pizza. We went there early in the afternoon and it was easy to get seated - 20 minutes later, not a single table was empty! We ordered 2 pizzas (the salame and... More

I wasn't expecting much on entering this rather brash looking pizzeria in the heart of Trastevere. The interior is over-lit and sterile with an extraordinarily mismatched set of poorly executed paintings, cheaply framed photographs and what looked like certificates of some sort or another. The service however, was prompt, friendly and encouraging. The menu starts with several pages of beers... More

The pizza and wine were ok, the service was slow but it was very busy. We asked for the bill and it came to 34 euro. I gave the waiter 40 euro, and, unlike with the Italian clientele, our waiter asked to keep the change of 6 euro ! I am happy to tip but he made it embarrassing for... More

We have choosen this restau because it is one of the zone in that has giod quality of food and value of money. Pizza's are done in a traditional way and fresh upon request and you have to taste the Vino in casa. Good place to spent a night with friends!

Excellent food, great service, authentic Italian atmosphere. The waiters treated us well and the children were at home. It was busy and crowded but just added to the experience.

So to say that this is a tourist trap in an understatement. The house wine was basically vinegar which I would forgive. I would also forgive our bruschetta never arriving. But what is unforgivable is stale carbonara.... in Rome? I've never had worse carbonara in Italy. It was just not done right. I'm sorry if this review is vitriolic but... More

Although our meal was adequate, I feel that reviews (and maybe social media) from the past years has created a restaurant designed to feed many tourists as quickly as possible. Waiters were literally running to and fro. Our wine did not arrive until late in the meal.

We went for 7 days in Rome and tried a lot of places to eat, but this food was the best by far. It was recommended to me by a friend who is a chef. He said he thinks that they do the best pizza in the world. The food is exceptional, the menu is traditional italian, and all the... More

If you do not want to go to where the tourists go, make sure you eat here. Fantastic food, inexpensive, great service even though our waiter was very busy, friendly atmosphere, a bang for your euro! Only regret - we didn't have enough time to go back a second time.

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.
