One of our friends recommended this restaurant for our vacation in Rome. The first two evenings we did’t get in there, because it was a very long row to get to the restaurant and we didn’t want to waist our time with waiting (they don’t...do reservations in advance). We got lucky finally, as we arrived to the Restaurant at 6:30pm - the were still some free tables. The Dinner was very delicious, with home made pasta and perfectly grilled steak. The wine costs cheaper than in other restaurants (we got our favorite one for 19€ the bottle, and normally we pay 24€). The service was quick and very friendly/helpful. The servings are quite large - we had to struggle to finish our second course. If you want to get the ultimate italian food experience - this place should be your spot number one!More

Delicious food, especially the grilled vegetables, fried artichoke, carbonara, and meatballs, and the staff took wonderful care of us—patient with us despite our wandering away to have a drink while waiting (not long) for a table, and Antonella and Alessia were sweet in guiding us...through the menu. Truly had a great time.More

We had an amazing time at Ortello. The food was amazing, the drinks were strong and well prepared. The highlight, however, was the team (Antonio, Sara and Ara), who were unbelievably friendly and helpful with the decision making. I absolutely recommend this great restaurant to...anyone who ever visits Rome and wants to have a great time!More

Two tourists making a spur of the moment decision on where to have dinner in Trastevere. We chose a roadside patio table at Otello and were very happy. (Cars passed by occasionally and slowly within 2 metres but it was ok) Service was great and...friendly. Food and drink were good and inexpensive: fried artichoke, tuna salad, spaghetti vongole, bottle of house wine, two desserts, coffee and grappa for C$70.More

Sorry, never used Metro, only buses, trams and taxis. Do not think Metro comes too near Trastevere

Hi, I do not work there, but I’m sure you can call them and make a reservation. We went on a Saturday night around 9pm and we had no reservations, but we were able to sit down in about 10-15 minutes.
