Ideally located an a quiet piazza, outside the rush and noise of the streets, we enjoyed a delicious meal on their cozy terrace. The waiters were funny, and caring, offering nice tips about the specialties of the menu. We enjoyed very much the pasta "cacio e pepe ", served in a crust of parmigiano. Prices were absolutely compared to the... More

We arrived at opening time-12:30-and were quickly seated outside. We ordered appetizers (stuffed olives, rice balls), pasta and wine. Food was excellent and service was very professional. This is a very comfortable place for lunch in Rome and prices are very reasonable. I think we would not have been seated quickly if we had come later.

Stopped off at this restaurant just for a coffee, on the way to the coliseum. Sat outside. Space is quite limited. Ordered coffee. Was good coffee, but very over priced. Found cheaper coffee shops than this one.

One of our favorite meals while in Rome, this out of the way, intimate restaurant is everything you are looking for. We were the only tourists in the restaurant, but the staff treated us as friends. The cacio de pepe is amazing, and a must order! Make reservations! We watched as they turned people away, and were so glad we... More

I visited here with my wife and with our 8m old son. Very lovely place. This place is now a standard for me as an Italian family restaurant. We both took cacio e pepe. It was just amazing. Staff was also very friendly and was constantly playing with our son which kept him happy :)

4 of us shared a beautiful birthday meal here on 22nd Feb. The staff are really lovely and helpful in suggesting menu choices but are not at all overbearing. They serve a lot of 'old style' typically Roman dishes plus an excellent range of pasta and pizza. The restaurant is in a beautiful location beside St Cecelia's church in Trastevere... More

This is a very busy restaurant so you will need reservations even for lunch. We went for the Caciove Pepe and were not disappointed. It was delicious and served in a bowl made out of crisped Parmesan. We also had some great Buffalo Mozerella to start. If you are going to be in Trastevere this is a great place to... More

Totally relaxed, tiny restaurant with incredible food and classy decor. Booking is essential and a few days in advance at that! Started with nibbles Moved to pasta Then shared a few mains - steak, grilled squid, seasonal artichoke Finished with home made deserts Service was as its supposed to be - friendly knowledgeable and making you want to return!

Our group of 4 was very pleased, with both visits. The Cacio e Pepe is a must, so is the Tripe. Outdoor or indoors, the space is warm and welcoming and the service is prompt and exacting. Not one of my best meals in Rome, but always a very solid choice when staying in Trastevere. An easy place to recommend... 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.
