When in Rome do as the Romans do.....or don't. I really thought this was going to be an authentic experience - I suppose it was. Staff were brash, decor was dated, house wine was awful, menu was ambiguous, atmosphere was absent, food was iffy.

It's a pitty we have no photo, as the food was too good to take a photo, we could not wait! It is very simple, not fancy but true local place with true local food. When we travel this is what we are looking for...More

We went there based on a recommendation from a guide. Let's start with the good parts: it was really authentic - the menu was only in Italian and handwritten. Bad parts: small selection of food. The food was ok, but not what I've expected (not...More

I'm Italian (living in London) and was moved as soon as I saw the menu. Food was exactly what a Roman in his kitchen would have. Couldn't take pictures because it was a business lunch but, oh my, trust me if I say that it...More

This is a small restaurant, seating 30 in the front salon, and about12 more at the back. This is well established "diner" that we had been going since 1987. It was and is reasonable for budget minded. There are almost always clerics dining there. Most...More

Away from Rome Trastevere crowds, this is definitely a restaurant where mainly locals come to eat. I tried their pork bisteca with broccoli and it was good. Price is reasonable as well. With 30 euros two people can have a great meal with wine and...More

We ate here while in Rome on recommendation from a guidebook and were very disappointed. I ordered the ravioli with spinach and ricotta which was fine, and my boyfriend ordered what he thought was beef. What came was a pork steak. Thinking this was simply...More

Not until later (after a bottle of house wine and minimal food at Da Giovanni) did I realize they overcharged me. Food was good, but disappointed in them (and myself) for being taken advantage of.

Mom and pop type Osteria with a somewhat limited menu. Food is simple but delicious and the prices are a bargain. Our meal for 2 was less than 30 euro

Cheap and cheerful, nice decor, decent service. The food was very simple but tasty. Nice calm place to go to after visiting the Vatican.

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
