The Cacio e pepe pasta itself is worth trying. As for the rest, it all looked kind of dated and wannabe-high-brow, along with the typical 90s "salad gardens" as a side dish. The staff was almost exclusively asian and once we sat down, a violin...More

This was our last meal in Italy after 15 days and it did not disappoint. We had researched this place after an Anthony Bourdain show where he picked another place for his Cacio e Pepe and critics suggested this place was better. Haha. It was!!!...More

It was my quest in Rome for cacio e pepe. Perhaps was the media stunt, courtesy of Anthony Bourdain that drew us here but our experience was really great. I was surprised that other people had negative experience with food. I've tried two other places...More

Cacio e Pepe was recommend by a concierge on our first night in Rome. We loved the cacio e pepe and the amatriciana. We spent the next two dinners + one lunch trying to find other "best" cacio e pepe dishes and they fell short...More

Got the Cacio e Pepe - quite good, definitely tasted the cheese and pepper, but I felt the sauce was just average.

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
