Butifull place and extreemly romantic. Unfortunatly we had dishes drowned in salt. Complained and got a replacement course that where better but still to salty. There are a lot of better places in Rome.

We happened upon this place, located on a tiny alleyway in a touristy area. But walk down the alley and you feel far away from all the busy streets and people. My son had the spaghetti cacio e pepe and I had a radicchio salad...with parmesan cheese. Both dishes were great. The salad was a bit small but filling enough. My son loved the pasta. I would definitely return.More

I visited here with my girlfriend and a friend last night and had a wonderful experience. Some of the most attentive and friendly staff in Rome and the food was exquisite. The restaurant setting is beautiful and hidden away from the main streets. As a...result, there is an extremely peaceful and tranquil ambience which was quite unexpected in such a central location. I would certainly recommend this restaurant as somewhere one must go to whilst in Rome. Thanks to all the staff!More

FABULOUS!!! Aroma Food Tours recommended this restaurant to us after we took their Dolce Vita Food Tour in the Via Veneto area. Amazing food, salad, pasta, everything. Pretty sweet staff and a cute hole in the wall. Will definitely go back and highly recommend. Thanks!

Tucked away and intimate this lovely small Trattoria serves excellent food, with great service and value for money. If you are looking for fabulous food, simply prepared with high quality ingredients and care, at a place predominantly full of locals then look no further.

Excellent! We made reservations well ahead of our visit.. great place to eat... I had fresh pasta with tomatoes and mozzarella and it was so good.. my husband had beef with artichokes and loved it! Service was great .. we were in outdoor seating area...which is enclosed with heavy plastic drapes and had heaters .. very comfortable.. hidden gem ! Look for the trattoria sign at the corner of the alley!More

We made a reservation each time we went. The waiting staff were extremely courteous, without being overpowering. Food was delicious: we had soup, ravioli, lasagne, chicken cacciatore, veal wrapped in ham, roast lamb, and all was tasty. In fact, I've made the traditional chicken cacciatore...with wine and vinegar, not tomatoes, since I've been home. Our bills, for 2/3 courses, wine and beer, were about 90€ for two, the three times we went there. Staff chatted and made us very welcome, with a little bruschetta (free) every time, and liqueurs on the house one evening.More

We have traveled to Italy at least a dozen times and can’t remember ever having a mediocre meal! (disclaimer: my grandparents were from Italy and I love pasta!) Arriving in Rome after 10 days in Egypt we couldn’t wait to go out to eat! (Our...cruise ship food was horrid) In fact, as were leaving the Cairo airport for Rome my husband started reciting everything he was craving to eat in Italy ! See pictures for details. (Was so starved for good food took a bite of our tomato bruschetta before I took a picture😂) Cannot go wrong here AND reasonable prices💰💰💰!More

There are so many wonderful restaurants in Rome, but this one stands near the top. It is not easy to find - near the Piazza della Rotonda (Pantheon) and at the end of a dark alley. Many restaurants in January don't require a reservation, but...you MUST have one here. The restaurant opens at 19:30, and fills up within 30 minutes. It is understandable once you experience the superb food and attentive service. We look forward to returning.More

I had a hard time accessing their online reservation, but calling them was very simple. They speak English and will have no problem understanding you.

Hi, Beth! 6:00 PM is awfully early for dinner, in Rome. As a matter of fact, Osteria del Sostegno's evening hours go from 7:30 PM—11:30 PM, Monday through Saturday, closed on Sundays. Good luck!
