Recommended by the trusty old Mario Batali... and what a place. its the last stop on Tram 8 or on one of the far stops on Bus H. The tram is a better option to get there. This is not your traditional trattoria. It is in a larger space and really sleek, without being fine dining. Everything from the fried... More

My husband and I eat at Da Ceaare last night and were some what disappointed. After reading reviews in Savier and Maria Batalli calling it one of the best trattorias in Rome and almost reading a great review from Katie Perla's Rome food blog we were expecting big things. To start the room is a large rather bland over light... More

Top Italian restaurant with incredible flavours. Away from the tourist traps, but easy to reach with tram 8, you can find this gem. Want to try real Italian food, visit this place!! You won't be dissapointed. Good value for money as well.

What a wee gem of a place. We ate Tuesday 19 April 2016 for evening meal and mainly picked it as the menu accommodated for the 7 year old. The food was delicious and well portioned. My only comment and is my own fault is that my steak came on its own. Had to order a side. Very reasonable bill.

Fantastic family run trattoria outside the central core zone. Taxi or public transport are a must as is a reservation booked a bit in advance, but you will be rewarded for the effort. Very few tourists, almost all locals from the neighborhood. Truly eating with the Romans! All the classics, done superbly. Excellent wine list!

I came here due to proximity to my Hotel and good reviews by trip advisor. Did had a very nice experience. You should come to have a nice reception, good food and to be in a nice environment. Would come again easily. Followed all suggestions from the cameriere and did not regret.

We had lunch here with a friend who lives in the neighborhood---we had a reservation, as our friend said it fills up quickly. Service was good, waiter explained the various specials, and the food is delicious. Make sure to order fritti --- we had fried gnocchi with caccio pepe sauce, and eggplant polpette with a spicy tomato sauce. We all... More

We came here for lunch---lovely large patio with room for lots of people---and had a great Roman lunch. It's extremely traditional---the usual "big 4" pasta, but you have your choice of home-made or normal pasta, plus there are fish dishes and a few other traditional ones. And the Fritti... THOSE are really good, and different from what you find elsewhere.... More

My wife and I have been living in Rome for the past month and visited Doria Pamphili, a lovely park, on a beautiful Sunday. It's located a short walk from the end of the #8 Tram. We read that Trattoria Da Cesare was a welcome and delicious place to eat so we stopped there for lunch first. The waiter greeted... More

From the outside, the restaurant does not look fantastic and the interior isn't magnificent either. The food, however, is fantastic. The supplì and fried aubergine starters are crunchy and wonderfully flavourful. The bucatini are delicious and I recommend the al'amatriciana sauce.

Thank Willem V
