Trattoria de Cesare is not a tourist trap restaurant, it is safely tucked away in suburbia and nowhere near anything remotely touristy. The restaurant does get busy with locals, from couples to families and friends, making it very vibrant. It specialises in Roman cuisine and every dish we chose was delicious. For starters we had the polpettes, these were so... More

I had a dinner with some friends at Trattoria da Cesare. We had some fiori di zucca and salumi misti as entrants. Then some of us got a first dish (carbonara, gricia o sugo di coda) and others got a second dish (trippa and vitello alla cacciatora). The waiter was attentive and the food was good. Nothing too special but... More

We had the most wonderful meal and I can still taste the gnocchi! Everything was perfection and delicious. the oxtail pasta was a family favorite, we kept stealing it from... More

Trattoria De Cesare had been recommended to us so we made reservations, took a cab ( for it is out of the way ) and were looking forward to a fantastic meal and dining experience. Maybe it was an off night or maybe we made a few wrong choices from the menu. Our server was extremely unattentive, acting like this... More

If you are looking for Italian food done traditionally and properly then you have come to the right place. I would eat here everyday if I could. The waiters are not arrogant, they are professional and know what they are talking about. It is not a place where they pander to the clients.

A bit hidden this place offers a great variety of traditional Roman food. The appetizer are unique and particular must try the fried gnocchi and the pizzottelle. They offer a small selection of pasta but the most traditional one, I tried the gricia and it was delicious. Also the main courses and desserts were very tasteful. If In the city... More

We stayed at the B&B next door and visited Da Cesare for dinner the first night of our trip and were not disappointed. We ordered several of their fried fritti appetizers (don't miss the fried gnocci). Delicious! We ordered several pasta dishes with homemade pasta. Outstanding. We were so full that we didn't have room for a second course or... More

Stopped by for a lunch late August 2016. Despite the fact that the waiter was a tad arrogant, gave us campari instead of aperol spritz (really not the same), I recommend the place. The food is divine, absolutely. The suppli, Carbonara, the truffle pasta. It's all worth the walk.
