The traditional Roman food at Simeto is reliably good and the portions are generous. Great place for families. Delicious pizza. Annoyances - despite being a pizzeria, they don't serve pizza on Sundays or holidays, and the service is efficient, but not overly friendly. We return...More

We've frequented this restaurant a few times in the past but haven't recently. We went back a few times thinking the service would be better but to no avail. The pizza is very good and relatively well priced. What is rather disappointing is the lack...More

Really enjoyed my time there. The waiter was very nice and patient. He helped us with the wine and checked on us often to see if everything was ok. The food was great ! Careful of the Romain big portions. I had the Pasta All'Amatriciana,...More

Small, family-driven restaurant with great food and service. We discovered it on our first trip to Rome four years ago, and it is still amazing. We took the whole family with us one night, and they loved it as well.

It is not the first time I have been here and it will definitely not be my last :) This is a very nice and simple place to have lunch or eat dinner. It looks like a family business restaurant, nothing fancy in the menu...More

We dined at Il Simeto, which was quite close to our hotel. Great Italian fare and excellent waiters. The ravioli was first class, and followed by gelato finished off the evening. Worth a visit

The place is a traditional Italian restaurant. Could also say not touristic. So I recommend it for taking a small taste of how it feels to be in an original place. Specialty of the place is definitely the pasta bit also serves other plates
