After two times of trying to get in we finally got a reservation on the third try. We are so glad we were persistent. Very charming small restaurant with attentive staff. Of course we came for the cacio e Pepe and so did everyone else....More

A local Roman friend recommended this place (somewhere their family choose to go regularly). He also recommended the signature dish ‘cacio e pepe’ which might have become something of a cliché but if you like cheese and more cheese (as well as a little freshly...More

We made a point of adding this to our Rome itinerary and made a reservation beforehand. The cacio e' pepe is a must!

Great service! Don't miss the Cacio e Pepe, the stuffed zucchini flowers and the apple crumble for dessert. Also, they have decent and very affordable house wine.

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
