“very worth to try”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

when you have not much budget to spend, just try Tratttoria Ponentino. Pasta are delicous. We ordered Rigatoni Carbonara and found it somehow delicous. The pasta marinara was great as well. Antipasti which consist of artichoke, eggplant, etc poured with olive oil was very tempting. Main food (oxtail with tomato base, 2 portion of porks) was not the best, but it was still worth it for the price you pay.

“Worst food ever”
Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

It was a nightmare. We did not like the starter, the main and the desert. Don't eat here ever. The food looks like pet food and tastes like pet food. I do not recommend this at all.

“Good and Bad!”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We ate here 2 nights in a row.

Good: outdoor dining with awning that kept us dry when it was showering; 10E tourist meals were acceptable; very pretty inside dining room; waitress on first night was lovely.

Bad: Waiter on second night was very rude throughout the meal. When we asked what the chef's surprise was for dessert, he wouldn't tell us; said it was a surprise! We asked if we would have to order it to find out what it was and he said yes and then he walked away! Outdoor tables were very close together which wouldn't have been a problem for us except people smoke all through their meals and it was blowing in our faces which we found very unpleasant. There was no soap in the men's room.

“Out of the Way”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

Off the main area of Trastevere but a wonderful place to eat. It gets crowded but take a walk around the Tiber while you wait for the crowd to subside. Every entree looks good and the seafood risotto I had was outstanding. To save few dollars have a carafe of the house wine which is delicious.
