Once I did a mistake to go there thinking on usual prices... More

If you want to eat really well without breaking the bank come here. Food is really, really good and really, really cheap. Like $5 for a heaping serving of delicious pasta. The pizzas are also really great!

Cute little spot in Trastevere, with tables outside to sit and enjoy a meal while watching people go by. The atmosphere was better than the food. Service was lacking. The server was impatient and service was very slow considering the place was not busy when we were there. Food is average. There are so many other place in Trastevere to... More

We have visited this place due to low prices and fantastic location, pizza was nicely made, pasta needed some salt and ground pepper. All in all nice

A definite must if visiting Rome. Service with a smile. Seafood antipasto was phenomenal as well as the potatas bravas with cheese and pepper!

Trastevere is a fabulous warren of small streets, brimming with local eateries, used by locals and tourists alike with prices a tad cheaper than the tourist traps in the historic city center. La Scaletta is a fairly typical narrow restaurant with 50 seats tops. We both had delicious pizza for lunch, mine with a spicy Habanero chilli.

Typical italian food with gluten free options for all the pizzas and penne variations for pasta. Good service and nice atmosphere. Recommended.

I visited this place 2 years ago and wasn't sure I would be able to find it this time. But I managed to do that. La Scaletta is a very nice taverna. Food is tasty, waitresses are fast and friendly. Prices are still reasonable, a big pizza costs around 7-8 euros, 1 liter of wine is around 10-12 euros. Would... More

The pizza was really good, unfortunately the serving is not. The waiters have a poor attitude towards foreigners and upon wanting to pay with some 1 and 5 cent coins we were told that it was not possible and if we have a credit card. The waiters were extremely rude at this point.

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
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 eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
