We thought we knew what buffalo mozzarella tasted like -- until we got here. You've never had it until you've tasted the product they make and sell here. Delicious, unique, incomparable -- definitely worth the trip!

We stopped here on our last evening to grab some meat and cheese to take home. We took a whole guanciale (cured pork cheek - €12.50/kg) and a giant hunk of 18 month aged parmigiana reggiano (€25/kg). We tasted the latter, which was definitely fresher...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
