This charming restaurant was across from our AirBnB in trastevere and we visited multiple times for filling lunches and easy dinners. It's family run and it shows. The food isn't fussy and they do Roman traditional dishes best. This includes their prosciutto and melon, cacio...More

My partner and I are quite big foodies and did a lot of research in to the best places to eat in Rome and Trastevere, were we were staying. Antico Carlone came highly recommended and we weren't disappointed. Authentic, quality Roman cuisine (including one of...More

Slightly old-fashioned feel and ambiance. The menu is fairly short (no pizza 🙂), mainly pasta or meat. Small child asked for amatriciana without chilli but they couldn't do that because "the sauce was already made". When it did arrive it didn't actually taste of chilli...More

The service we had was terrible. We had a reservation which they lost, and we were made to feel like we were inconveniencing them when they finally seated us. They clearly had staffing issues on that day we went and we felt very unwelcome. It...More

I am a pasta addict. I have to admit. So I ate pasta twice a day for 10 days on this trip to Italy. And this was the best pasta of them all. period.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our B&B host so we thought we’d try it out. We went VERY early at 7pm and we were able to get a table, however every other table was (even at that time) reserved. We ordered the cacio...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
