Traditional, nice trattoria in lively Trastevere. ‘Cacio & Pepe’ pasta, served in Parmesan dish, is simply amazing, one of the very best in Rome. Deep fried Baccalà and Zucchini are equally ‘hits’ of the place, with fresh and tasty ingredients, but come-in too deeply fried...More

Make a reservation to make sure you get a table and then go and enjoy feeling like a local. The Cacio e Pepe is served in a bowl made of Parmesan which add to the specialness of this simple dish. We also had the pasta...More

Typical „Do not go“ place. We really couldn't understand who gave them so high evaluations. Small and overcrowded, appears like a chance to eat something good for reasonable price in generaly overpriced local tavernas. But this is just an appearance, while the facts are quiet...More

Don't be put off by the unassuming exterior or the faded menu outside. This place is lovely and got busy very quickly after opening for lunch. The waiters were brilliant. Very funny and obviously used to dealing with stupid tourists trying out their terrible Italian....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
