Description: "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

We had a pleasant meal, not exceptional but good. Service was okay. Wine is only by the bottle, it was nice but far more than we required. We spent more than on other nights when we have had equal if not better meals.

A typical Italian trattoria with good food at a reasonable price. We were there because the Perillo guided tour we were on chose to eat dinner there. We were served a sampling of their menu as well something we choose.

Saw this restaurant in trip advisor being close to the hotel and with relatively good rating. I was visiting Rome for my bday and decided to try it....to be completely honest, the ratings saying is a good restaurant were wrong....the restaurant is superb.....best ravioli we ever had in our life, not to mention the pasta carbonara and the starter for two. Lots of locals eating here which gives you the idea of a typical Roman restaurant. Also, our waiter Mattia is the best waiter in Rome and did his best to speak our language. In summary is a must come back restaurant because atmosphere, service, location and especially food. 5/5 for this small gem next to the river.

Charming little family-owned restaurant. They had prepared a special meal, with wine, for our group. The food was delicious, and the service made us Americans feel very welcome. Five course meal, and it was all good. Meatballs, fish, pizza, pasta, it was delicious.
