We stopped off for dinner here as our accommodation was nearby - if you're staying in the centre of Rome, I'm not sure you'd want to go all the way out because there's not a lot else to see/do in the area as it's quite residential...but the food was delicious and the staff were all very friendly. There didn't seem... More

This place is where you still find the real roma in my opinion. Hidden outside the touristic centre in a quiet neighbourhood this place is a gem. Ok fare enough some tourist still find their way here like us because of Anthony bourdains layover Rome episode but still this place seemed to have kept it real compared to boncis pizzarium... More

My favourite trattoria in Roma. Close to my place. Friendly, easy going, excellent food. The owner tommy is a friend of mine. The baddest guy in universe. Food? TOP.

On Saturday night my friends and I went for dinner at Betto e Meri. It is a little out of the way of Rome's city centre (we had to take two trams) and I was surprised by the packed lively atmosphere of the large restaurant as we entered what appeared to be a small establishment from the outside. It is... More

5* for what it is - a very traditional, family trattoria, NOT fine dining. For what it is, yes *****. You probably need a bit of Italian to get by, or be willing to take your chances on, e.g., horsemeat. The available dishes are described to you by your server; that's it. To get there, take the #1 tram from... More

This is an amazing place. They serve traditional Roman dishes, I never dreamed of tasting. Meat eaters will feel very much at home here, but they do do a vegetarian version of spaghetti carbonara (with courgette). Don't order white wine, you might get told off (they don't do fish). While the waiters may occasionally come across a little gruff, they... More

To bring your friends who want to savor the real Roman experience. The waiter will sit on the table with you to take your order. You must absolutely try the horse meat to appetizer as it is divine. Make sure that you order half a portion of pasta (or share with a friend) otherwise you will be unable to eat... More

Great place to try traditional Rome dishes. It's fairly big and packed, with just a few cm separating tables. We ate there twice during our stay in Rome. There are no menus but the waiting staff can explain the day's specials in English. Antipasti, pasta carbonara or with sauces from various casseroles, for second course we had a mixed plate... More
