Thus restaurant is located in the heart of Trastevere. It had been 3 years since we had visited this area and I was amazed at the number of young 20-30 year olds lining the atreets. The restaurant has a lovely garden in the back which...More

We had a great meal here outside on the terrace. The staff was very friendly. We enjoyed our limoncello after the meal. It seems everyone is given it after dinner if they want it.

Beautiful location to spend with family and friends dining in a courtyard away from the traffic and noise of Rome - located on the edge of Trastevere at the base of via Garibaldi - everything was tasty!

Seven of us spent last evening in the beautiful, interior garden of Romolo. The atmosphere was delightful, the food was delicious and the wine was perfect. The servers were attentive and our after dinner limoncello shots were on the house.

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
