“Authentic cuisine, friendly staff”
Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Nice little restaurant. The menu has something for everyone. We had pasta and seafood, pasta was al dente and clams and gamberi of excellent quality. The wine list is rather short but acceptable. Staff is very attentive and friendly. Very good Espresso! This restaurant is worth a recommendation.

“Skip Italy, Go to Orlando”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

We've been to the Trastevere neighborhood in Rome, but you can save a lot of money by going to Cafe Trastevere in Orlando. The food is better. We sat in a little courtyard with a fountain and lots of foliage, very similar to Rome, so the romantic ambience is very nice. The food, however, was fantastic. Starting with the steamed clams, they were the best we ever had. We even asked for extra bread to sop up all the delicious juice. For main courses, we had pork medallions and penne ala vodka with smoked salmon. As scrumptious as these dishes were, we could not eat them all, so we have wonderful leftovers to look forward to. This is the best Italian restaurant we have been to in the Orlando area, and we love to eat out....a lot!

“Authentic Italian!!”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

Cafe Trastevere is The best Italian in Orlando!! We Absolutely love this place;) It truly transports you to a little Bistro in Italia! The Ambience is quaint, cozy tables with candles, a bar, and beautiful patio outside with italian landscape, fountain, soft lighting. We found this hidden Gem a few months ago & would go everyday if we could. We love to come for a romantic dinner or hanging with our friends. This is a place you come for a home cooked Authentic Italian Meal.
The food is Always perfection!
The Homemade Gnocchi is phenomenal & perfect swimming in a delectable Alfredo sauce. The filet is mouthwatering, cooked to perfection married with mushrooms(we ate here tonight & Im making my self hungry), all the pastas are so good -homemade, the marinara is so fresh you can taste each ingredients, like a party in your mouth. The wine is a good selection, my favorite are the Italian Reds. Thank you Phillip for the Montopuciano wine. It was Excellent & greatly paired with dinner. It was so thoughtful of you to special order us Italian wine from our favorite Region to make our Experience even better. The staff is very thorough & friendly.
At this Restaurant You feel like Famila!! The owners are so attentive, kind & all about making you feel at home. You can tell there is a lot thought and heart that goes into the atmosphere & food! Thank you for making every visit such a joy. I feel so lucky to have discovered a little piece of Italy in my back yard!! If you are in the mood for Authentic Italian this place is a must!!

“Wonderful experience”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

What a finding !!!!!
Just came back from a recent trip to Rome and let me tell you the food is comparable to what I had during my trip. Great pasta, fantastic red sauce and seafood. The tiramisu is for sure on the top of my list. Great job. Will be back for sure.
