Our dinner at Antica Pesa was an experience that must be described in two parts. “Front-of-house” and the general ambience were well up the standards expected. All the restaurant staff were polite and professional. The restaurant itself is up there with the most charismatic and...More

This restaurant serves small portions of very good food. The drinks are ok - although a martini was served in a small glass - half the size of a regular martini glass, without olives. Beef tartar was ok. Sole was excellent. Penne pasta just average...More

What a disappointment! I can't understand how this restaurant has a star in Guide Michelin. Bad service and mediocre food. The starter/antipasti was ok. Will not return.

Very friendly staff and good pasta. Nice ambiance in a nice part of Rome. Would highly recommend. They also have a restaurant in Brooklyn.

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

We went on a Saturday evening so people tended to be dressed up as they were there for celebrations (birthdays etc). I think in general it would be classed as "smart casual" because it is not cheap and it's probably... More

Giving always attention to meet the changing course of the latest trends, the restaurant has the culinary agility to anchor the current fashion to the heritage of the rules and quality of the food products, maintaining the delicate equilibrium between discretion and popularity. In this way, we assure our guests to be present, without appearing. The original customs officer and the modern host, preserving the historic mission of the place, have been followed by a family known as connoisseurs of taste: the perfection of the proposed cuisine, offered in an ambiance enhanced by the beauty of the great artworks and the meticulous attention for each guest, so to guarantee an exclusive atmosphere combined with the warmth of a comforting familiarity. Our guest, no matter from which movie set arrives, or for how long hasn’t come, is always welcomed with a smile, a shake of hand, a delicious meal accompanied by an excellent wine and with the warmth of the art surrounding this fascinating angle of Rome. We know well that what the body nurtures is not foreign to the soul.
