this is one of the most amazing places to dine that i have ever been to. The dishes are exceptional as was the wine. The pasta dishes with fish were fantastic as was the veal dishes. A totally worthwhile experience. This place has been here for many, many years and serves the freshest of fresh food. Everything is good!

We were recommended to this restaurant by a local, the owner of our small hotel, 6 years ago and we had an excellent meal. The gnocchi was especially good. We arrived in Rome again this morning, a Thursday, so we sought out this place again for gnocchi. We were not disappointed. The artichoke a la giudia was also very good.... More

I can agree with carol186414. The place is full of locals, the food was above average but the prices were very expensive compared to other restaurants. Service was just ok. Nothing special, was good but you can find better place.

A grubby doorway, unswept entrance, set the scene for a very indifferent overpriced meal. Waiters barely managing to serve a undeservedly packed restaurant. Paper lying on the floor in the dining area. Wine list falling apart.

I'm really sorry for the impression you had of my restaurant. It will not be justified but the weekend was very pressing and perhaps I lost sight of something. Stefania More

The foods served were good and of large portion. The ambiance inside was nice. However, the service was not very attentive, probably because it was later during the lunch time. The price is slight higher than other restaurants we tried with similar consumption.

Went with my wife based on Trip Advisor reviews. Beautiful patio setting.. Had the good fortune to be sitting next to a couple from Norway. My wife being of Norwegian descent enabled us to have a pleasant and informative discussion of cultural differences.. Made me realize that having others to chat with makes the time pass quickly.

I am very happy to have spent a nice evening with friends. The potato dumplings are a typical Roman dish, as well as the scallop marsala. However, a historic restaurant like mine to be reviewed, is worth a visit. This is to emphasize that the differences are fundamental. Stefania More

The food, service and ambience are excellent. The dishes are consistently of the highest order. If you want top quality ingredients and truly great Roman fare then Checco's is a must.

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.
