Really nice and cosy restaurant in a quiet hidden piazza in Trastevere. We were lucky we found the place, it was raining lots and didn't want to walk far from our apartment. Once inside.... we both were absolutely amaze. Decoration is impressive, you feel like...More

There is a huge choice of restaurants in Trastevere but this one is certainly different. From the outside it looks as if it is closed but climb up the steps and you find yourself in a unique setting as if you had walked into a...More

Was just walking around and stumbled across this restaurant. Was very quiet, as I was there early, so my service and food was very good. I had some Bruschetta and then salsiccio di montagne. Got a beer and then 1/2 carafe of house red •...More

From the outside it is not always obvious this restaurant is open. But climb the stairs and enter the beautiful space decorated with old farm implements and soft lighting and be pleasantly surprised. We ate perfectly grilled quail and sea bass and enjoyed the usual...More

We were walking past this restaurant going to another and it looked so beautiful that we had to stop in. The first night there wasn’t that many people and neither was the night we ate. I love the place, it’s like going back in time....More

The food was OK, we ordered pizza and bruschetta and they were tasty. Wine is not bad but could definitely be better. However our waiter Dario was quite funny and we enjoyed his service. Plus the restaurant location and decor are quite nice.

Poor quality food and decor. Simply touristy, absolutely tasteless. My pork chops were fatty and bruschetta very heavy. Home wine bad. Would not go back.

We sat outside with our large family and enjoyed good food, friendly service and a beautiful setting. The kids had delicious pizzas and the adults ate grilled fish and meats. We'd highly recommend this charming traditional restaurant.

This is probably the worse dinning experience I have ever had. We went with a large group. The food was literally thrown at some of us without an apology. The waiters were extremely rude and swore in Italian to several of us; in particular when...More

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
