Visited this restaurant twice, both times proved my choice was correct. The winter time menu was perfect. Roman specialties with the aromas and depth that Italian cuisine offers. The summer menu was very light and refined. Try the mini hamburgers if you carry small children...More

We absolutely loved the experience of great food, fabulous wine and a lively local atmosphere which included the owner, an Italian soccer star and a very famous actor. It is west of the river in a quaint tree-lined neighborhood. (Yes, actual trees in Rome, who...More

Antica Pesa is definitely a restaurant to see and be seen. When you walk in the lounge area is filled with framed pictures of the owner with literally half of Hollywood. The food is classic Roman. The wine list is a bible. Enjoyed our meal...More

This is a great choice for your special meal in Rome. The neighborhood is great. We walked around there and it was a great change from most of Rome. Cute, quiet small cobble stone streets with great bars and stores around it. The food was...More

I relied on the hotel concierge for this suggestion. My mistake. I had been diligent about researching restaurants throughout my trip and had not been disappointed. This place, however, caters to tourists. Not a single local in the joint...and that says it all. The service...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

Giving always attention to meet the changing course of the latest trends, the restaurant has the culinary agility to anchor the current fashion to the heritage of the rules and quality of the food products, maintaining the delicate equilibrium between discretion and popularity. In this way, we assure our guests to be present, without appearing. The original customs officer and the modern host, preserving the historic mission of the place, have been followed by a family known as connoisseurs of taste: the perfection of the proposed cuisine, offered in an ambiance enhanced by the beauty of the great artworks and the meticulous attention for each guest, so to guarantee an exclusive atmosphere combined with the warmth of a comforting familiarity. Our guest, no matter from which movie set arrives, or for how long hasn’t come, is always welcomed with a smile, a shake of hand, a delicious meal accompanied by an excellent wine and with the warmth of the art surrounding this fascinating angle of Rome. We know well that what the body nurtures is not foreign to the soul.
