We got a table outside and enjoyed the mixed bruschetta as a starter. I had rigatoni with Italian bacon as a main and my wife the seafood risotto. We loved both. I read that the service did not speak a word of English which we...More

The service here is terrible. It took my table about 15 minutes for a waiter to even come to us. When he finally got to our table to take our order, we were told the cocktails weren't available. We pointed to the menu so he...More

Went to a nearby recommended restaurant but it wasn’t serving dinner until 7:30...we were starving at 5 and found Ristorante Il Ponentino open and inviting. Good food and service. Family of 5 had starters, main courses, desserts, wine, waters, and coffees for €88. Very pleased!

We found Ponentino 6 years ago and have come back many, many times, over the years. This year we discovered that most of the wait staff is newly employed, and the food, which used to be totally fabulous, has become very ordinary. Fortunately, we brought...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
