We went without reservations on a Tuesday when they were having a private party so we were seated outside on a cold night with a passable heater for the table. Plain, simple good food. Nice servers. Good cause (it is a cooperative employing some developmentally disabled staff in training). House wine was passable. Grandma's meatballs and the Chicken and Peppers... More

This place was recommended not only as a good place to eat but also because it is managed by a community organization that employs disabled persons. For primi C had Tonnarelli Cacio e Peppe, he tends to like his pasta overcooked so he is struggling a bit the ‘al dente’-ism of the pasta dishes we have been served but he... More

We were very happy with our choice to go to Trattoria degli Amici. My fennel salad was very tasty as were my wife's pasta cace e pepe and my son's gnocchi ala carbonara. The service was very attentive and we enjoyed sitting outside in the early evening to enjoy the lively Piazza do San Egidio setting.

This is a fantastic restaurant with a great concept. We had a weekend in Rome with my in-laws and stumbled on this place by accident. We didn’t realise what the concept of the restaurant was until we read the dialogue on table cover. My father in law is a fussy eater but even he enjoyed the food. I had fried... More

Over the years we have been visiting this restaurant at least once in every visit of Rome. The service is always very friendly and helpful. However the quality of the food has not kept up as well. Where it used to be able to provide quality and simplicity in their dishes it now lacks inspiration and imagination in their dishes.

You will have seen the comments about the way in which the restaurant is operated for the benefit of the less than privileged. Our meal was fine, Roman menu, it represents good value and deserves support. I had aubergine Parmegano which was excellent and a Gnocchi Carbonara. The latter was a bit salty but good portions.

We stumbled on it by accident as we were looking for a place to have lunch. First, we did not know that the restaurant worked together with disabled people, but when we found out we were very excited about it. What a great way to help them! Our waiter was excellent, however they asked us to speed up eating our... More

The place was not among the most popular and we entered with some doubts, but were so happy we did it. Excellent lasagna and ravioli. And the Montepulciano wine was just great. It was a pity we had the last bottle in the restaurant. The fact that the place has a social cause just added value.

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.
