It is a great place. An ex prison where they put scary tools on the wall is just awesome idea. List of wine is outstanding. But unfortunately the food just as ordinary as it could be.

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

"La Gattabuia" is located in old Trastevere, in a splendid tavern 1400 (o 400?) year old. The three rooms match a fine old-fashioned furnishing with terracotta brick walls, arches and vaults.

Among the typical restaurants of the area, "La Gattabuia" is one of the most famous. It is easy to reach, in between the alleys and piazzas. The restaurant was born from the walls of an ancient prison of the Papalin era.

We are glad to welcome you in a pleasant environment filled with natural pigments. Our service has nothing to envy to luxurious restaurants.

The tables are disposed so to have a certain distance from each other. We have an eterogeneous menu, easy to adapt to everybody. A night at "La Gattabuia" will definitely leave you impressed: you will soon be asking for more!

You will find several different dishes, ranging from tasty appetizers, fried and grilled vegetables, typical roman dishes (Carbonara, Gricia, Amatriciana, Cheese and Pepper) among which you will find our "Chef Offers", like Gnocchi with Colonnata Lard and Courgettes pate, Strozzapreti with Boletus and Truffles or Rigatoni with Tail Tomato Sauce.

Delight yourself with our grilled meat (from Argentina and Denmark), our roasts, fillets and steaks. Try our roman tripe, stewed beef tail, Lamb Offal. Our vast selection of Pizzas, baked in our wood stove, will make your mouth water.

Our cellar is filled with an accurate assortment of red wines ordered by region. We have at our disposal more than 80 different wines from Lazio
