Glass Hostaria restaurant in Rome’s Trastevere quarter is an eye-full for lovers of superhot modern design. Set in one of Rome’s oldest, most atmospheric neighbourhoods, Glass Hostaria’s fabulous high-concept dining space with its soaring ceilings, open staircase, part-glass floor, sleek seating and stunning gold-filled niches contrasted with raw brick pillars and original beamed ceiling has won accolades and international attention. The Italian menu under the direction of Cristina Bowerman is an inventive balance of then and now, with dishes like starter of foie gras with caramelized bananas (yes, that’s right) and brioche, first course of risotto with oysters, crème fraîche and crunchy artichokes,

Friends recommended this restaurant and they did not steer us wrong; the food was absolutely amazing the pasta probably the best I’ve ever had. They have a very competitively priced wine list, great service and really interesting food would definitely visit again.

Trendy, yet classy and atmospheric restaurant in the middle of lively Trastevere. We had the 'traditional menu', which mainly consists of meat-based dishes. Highlights: the Ravioli del plin, stuffed with amatriciana sauce, pecorino cheese and guanciale, the pre-dessert of sweetbread (!) with wild cherries and...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
