Stopped into this restaurant on a food tour and it's our biggest regret that we didn't make it back to eat a full meal there. Prior to visiting Sisini, if you had told me that pizza didn't need cheese to be amazing, I would have never believed you. But one bite and I was in heaven. The sauce was to... More

On a rainy night when I was tired, I went to this pizza place (don't be fooled by the Ristorante in its name, it's just a very small storefront for carryout, not a sit-down restaurant) based on a mentioned in my Lonely Planet guidebook, which says it's a favorite place for locals for sliced pizza. No one in the shop... More

This was without a doubt the best slice of pizza I had in Italy. We stopped in when we saw the crowd, was actually looking for a different spot. No English was exchanged, but after some gesturing and pointing I was rewarded with a delicious slice of thin pan crusted (thin and crispy but almost like focaccia) with simple crushed... More

Yum! We found this place by mistake. It was packed full of locals getting lunch. The pomodoro pizza was phenomenal. This is the Roman "pan" pizza where the crust is formed in a tray. Thin, crispy crust with simply seasoned crushed tomatoes on top, no cheese - almost like bruschetta. So full of drag tomato flavor. Craving as I write... More

I stumbled across this place after it was on my route and showing my Lonely Planet iPhone app. I got there about 2 pm to find that it was essentially a small shop with two counters - one for pizza and one for pasta. I queued for the pasta. Two of the four trays were nearly empty when I arrived... More

Open all day so no need to worry about the tricky closing between 1500-1900 routine. At 14.30 on a Tuesday afternoon it was packed with locals stuffing snacks (I saw arrancini, spit roast chicken,little cartons of pasta etc, etc) and slices of the best pizza I have ever tasted. Very simple; mostly single toppings but they do something to the... More

There are a lot of restaurants in Trastevere. I’d like to recommend one of them, my favourite Sisini. It is decorated in traditional Italian style. They have an excellent vines and dishes: pasta, niokki, pizza, very tasty salads. The staff is attentive and well-trained. The best way to reach here is by tram from Argentina-square – it takes 10 minutes.... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
