Lovely ambience. Not cheap. Good quality & beautifully cooked meat. Intimidatingly large portions so be careful what you order; unless you're really hungry, one course would be plenty; it's all quite weighty.

From the moment we were seated we were not disappointed between the wine selection, the food choices and the wait staff! A fabulous dinner experience!

Came for a birthday celebration and opted to sit outside in the garden area. The pasta comes in little pans, which we felt made the whole busy area a little warm, but it tasted delicious. Service was excellent and the atmosphere was busy but romantic....Enjoyed the whole experience and it's in a vibrant area of Rome.More

We were excited to try this restaurant following on from all of the excellent reviews but we were very disappointed from the moment we sat down. We had booked a table a month or so in advance and arrived on time to be told we...needed to wait for a table. This was not a problem and we were happy to wait. After 10 minutes or so we were shown to a table. The table already had a family of four seated there and my boyfriend and I were shoved on the end of their table! The table was small and cramped and was not following social distancing either. It was extremely uncomfortable to be sat on the end of another families table and not what we expected when I booked a table for myself and my boyfriend. Other couples dining in the restaurants were not seated like this and had their own table so it wasn’t exactly normal. We also saw other people being seated before us. This set us of to a bad start before we had even begun our meal and we felt frustrated. We skipped the starters which were nothing exciting as we just wanted to leave by this point. I had a carbonara which was overrated and the worst I had whilst in Rome (perhaps not to my taste). My boyfriend had strips of fillet which were more like shreds of meat with mushy and soggy vegetables on top, this was not very hot either. We bought a bottle of wine which was fine but skipped dessert as we just wanted to leave. Perhaps because we were young and tourists they did not make as much as an effort with us but it was such a disappointing experience and I would not recommend. I’ve never written a review before and made an account specifically to do so - please avoid!More

I was recommended to try this restaurant by the hotel as I wanted a really good pasta restaurant- it was typical trattoria style - friendly staff and not too busy. I had the caprese first which was nice - not great - bits of carrots...and sundries tomatoes alongside fresh tomatoes- mozzarella was good! I then had the oxtail pasta which was superb- a bit disconcerting at first when it is served in a pan which you have to eat from- however the pasta was lovely and al dente so really a good choice. I had the pannacotta next which was dreadful- a baseline of glycerin texture in the bowl not creamy or light but really horrible- the fruits on top tasted strange and I left the dish. The waitress asked if I wanted some years but did not and in fairness they took off the bill. I asked was the desert bought in as frozen and she said no which was shows a problem in that area! Overall the food was average but the pasta was good!!!More

No visit to Rome is complete for me without making a stop by Taverna Trilussa; their pasta dishes for me are the gold standard for traditional Roman primi. In all of Rome, for example, I have yet to come across a carbonara which even compares....Call ahead! It's rare that they have tables available on short notice!More

Authentic Roman food, lovely wine list and a really interesting location. The place has a great atmosphere inside and out. You need to book in advance as it is usually packed- pasta served in pans is a nice touch. Fun fact: Beyoncé rented out the...whole place and feasted here in 2018.More

We booked our last dinner in Rome here based on several recommendations from friends. You would think it would have been geared to travelers, but it's as authentic as it gets. Great service. Fun atmosphere for a family. The pasta dishes were perfect. The skillet...servings prompted many pictures. The house Chianti was a perfect match. We left at 9:30pm and the line was down the street. Deservedly so. Trastevere has many great restaurants, make sure this is on your list.More

Allocated table outside as hadn’t reserved even although place wasn’t busy. Table of four and cost €200 for 4 staters and 4 mains with 1 bottle of wine. Food was distinctly average. Service was excellent.

Visited the restaurant for my birthday last night with one of my daughters. Came highly recommended. Easy to make a reservation which agree is best since place was crowded. Meal was fine, servers and staff seemed ok engaging in English which I’ve found is not...too prevalent in Rome. Daughter had the sliced filet and loved it. Pasta for me was ok. Did find the staff eager to remove plates as we were still dining though didn’t feel pressured to leave. Not sure I’d return in future since does seem like there are many options in that neighborhood. New to me was the fact that the bread they bring over and over to your table is a charge to the customer. Not a fan of that practice. Will say ambience was nice of the place and the neighborhood is one I would return to in a heartbeat.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

If you are staying in a hotel ask the concierge to call for you. Otherwise call early evening. You must check that you are calling the correct phone number.

The Roman kitchen is full of vegan options, especially artichokes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants etc I am sure you will find a large selection to choose from. You can check the menu on line.
