Maybe our expectations were too high. From our starter - from the acclaimed ravioli - to the pasta, the first bites of each dish were good, but not great. Several of our diners didn't love their entree; I had the fish, which was very fresh,...More

This gem on a backstreet in Trastevere, our favorite neighborhood, is small and cozy with an emphasis on seafood. Excellent bass in salt crust for two. Nice wine list and very friendly staff.

Simply the best Osteria in Rome. Located in the Trastevere area which has a great vibe anyhow. Top simple Italian cooking with well priced good wine.

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

Warm atmosphere in the heart of Trastevere with fantastic, well-presented food. Great place for authentic Italian dishes as it is mainly frequented by locals.
