The pastas were very fresh and loaded with flavor. This included pasta with shrimp and zucchini and pasta with mussels. Those were the recommended dishes of the day. The owner asked if we'd like some grilled porcini mushrooms that he displayed in a basket. Glad...More

The title sums up the place... Looks like an old trattoria from the outside where you'd expect a "normal service" but actually it's quite odd. The owner sits you down and speaks to you in italian straight away (you're in Rome, what did you expect?)....More

This is an excellent restaurant for visitors with a little Italian and appreciation of the quirkiness of Roman restaurants and life. They don't really speak English (some reviewers had a problem with this), but really, why should they??? We eat here every summer and the...More

Very rustic trattoria offering by Italian family-run restaurant. Tasty and friendly trattoria at a very small price. No english or french spoken here but very friendly italian style serving. The fresh pasta dishes at 8 euros are a must. A good fun meal at a...More

We got there by recommendation of a friend and it was worth it. Very good simple italian food for a reasonable price. We'll definitely come back when we're back in Rome.

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
