Based on the reviews I was expecting a very lively place where the staff was somewhat irreverent. What we found (on a Friday night) was a lovely place where the staff was so kind and attentive. I am traveling with my sister and we are both learning Italian and the staff could not have been any more accommodating. The place... More

Recommended by friends from Rome, this place was the real deal. Food was fresh and authentic. I had linguini with a very generous portion of clams. One of the best linguini and clam dishes I have had. The waiters were all gracious and friendly and they happily helped us with our Italian. They suggested we try eating our carciofi judeo... More

In an interesting area of Trastevere, short walk from Ponte Sisto.There's a very nice area for outside seating, and the food is generally good (just not amazing). It may have been our fault for going early (i.e. 7:30 pm) but the place was just swarming with families with kids running around and fighting-- it felt like a pre-school. Italian service... More

I am very sorry that the children are disturbed by it but this does not depend on our will, perhaps the waiters were just a little bit of confusion. Stefania More

The restaurant is in the Trastevere area few hundred meter from ponte Sisto bridge. It is a typical vintage Roman trattoria. It is a famous place. You can find numbers of photos of famous people on the walls frequenting the place since the '60. While we were having lunch we had Roberto Benigni at the table at our side. Concerning... More

We had dinner here without a reservation, but they were nice and found us a table. We ate the typical Roman "carciofo alla Giudia" (fried artichoke) and "abbacchio a scottadito" (grilled lamb) and finished with a wonderful dessert (tiramisu'). A very good choice.

This is an age old restaurant, with pictures and posters dating back to the 1930's. The restaurant I suspect hasn't materially changed forever. Menu offer is tradional fare and served by wonderful staff who have been there for many years. My spaghetti vongole was fab followed by roast lamb and potatoes. Finished off with mixed berries and ice cream. Could... More

Although the welcome was a bit cooler than it is in other restaurants in Rome, my lunch here was certainly a memorable experience. Eating in a small courtyard under the shade of an orange tree made the lunch visually memorable; the food was impressive in its attention to detail, with nary a false note. Although the prices are on the... More

Definitely worth a visit. Every bit as good, if not better, than the reviews. The pasta dishes were simply outstanding. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Great value for money. A place I will go back to.

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere
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 eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
