We went for dinner and had the set menu, choosing our own wine - we usually don't choose the wine pairing and prefer to decide ourselves what goes into our glasses. And the wine list deserves that, with a good choice at reasonable prices. We...More

A wonderful experience to explore new tastes on a new Italian Cucine. Excelent service, sublime plates from an artistic Chef. Lobster, highly recommended.

We found Glass Hostaria as a surprise. It was a great departure from the more traditional restaurants we had been eating in on our trip. The decor is modern with champagne bottles resting on stones in wells under the floor so you walk above them....More

Delightful restaurant in midst of delightful Trastavere neighborhood. Lovely space, creatively designed and decorated. Tried the traditional tasting menu with several super dishes, especially the sweetbreads, veal tongue pastrami, and sumac flavored lamb. Creative and pleasant evening.

This restaurant is pure joy. The food is absolutely delicious. Service is great, and the price is reasonable considering it's a Michelin restaurant.

Trastevere
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

Description
Glass Hostaria restaurant in Rome’s Trastevere quarter is an eye-full for lovers of superhot modern design. Set in one of Rome’s oldest, most atmospheric neighbourhoods, Glass Hostaria’s fabulous high-concept dining space with its soaring ceilings, open staircase, part-glass floor, sleek seating and stunning gold-filled niches contrasted with raw brick pillars and original beamed ceiling has won accolades and international attention. The Italian menu under the direction of Cristina Bowerman is an inventive balance of then and now, with dishes like starter of foie gras with caramelized bananas (yes, that’s right) and brioche, first course of risotto with oysters, crème fraîche and crunchy artichokes, second course of pork filet with quinoa, smoked tomatoes and orange sauce, and dessert of chocolate cake with rosemary ice cream. The tasting menus are good value and the wine list has over six hundred labels on offer. Hire of this venue would make a superb site for stylish launches or sophisticated parties. The service is excellent and, after dinner, Glass Hostaria turns into a wine bar, so you can linger on and on.
