The food is actually very good but you don't get the chance to enyoj it since as soon as you finish antipasto they take the plate away and your next meal arrives. So instead of enjoing a nice roman dinner in beautiful Trastevere we had...More

Having tried a number of the more touristy places, we were very pleased to have found Antico Carlone, which is slightly off the beaten track. We were the only non Italians on the night of our visit and it was by far the best restaurant...More

Really Italian food served in this restaurant in Trastevere. The price are a little bit higher than other restaurants but it’s worth.

This restaurant is the highlight of our day. My Italian husband had been in Rome more than 10 times and said that this place still had, after all these years, the best carbonara in town. The menu with some specialties (unlike the long menu of...More

This charming restaurant was across from our AirBnB in trastevere and we visited multiple times for filling lunches and easy dinners. It's family run and it shows. The food isn't fussy and they do Roman traditional dishes best. This includes their prosciutto and melon, cacio...More

Slightly old-fashioned feel and ambiance. The menu is fairly short (no pizza 🙂), mainly pasta or meat. Small child asked for amatriciana without chilli but they couldn't do that because "the sauce was already made". When it did arrive it didn't actually taste of chilli...More

The service we had was terrible. We had a reservation which they lost, and we were made to feel like we were inconveniencing them when they finally seated us. They clearly had staffing issues on that day we went and we felt very unwelcome. It...More

We had an amazing lunch at this special place. Warm ,welcoming, with advise from the owner . We ended up with shared dishes that were totally mouth watering.!!

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
