We had Christmas evening dinner here: great food, friendly service and nice atmosphere with some locals mixed in. Highly recommendable on other days too, I'd imagine.

We've eaten several times at Romolo and love their pasta, lamb and steak. Lovely atmosphere. Kind and friendly wait staff. Excellent food.

Very nice interior garden seating, but very disappointed with the pasta amatriciana...the "pancetta" was just tough gristle and fat, no meat at all. Our other dish of grilled and fried seafood was overcooked, over-salted and the calamari was tough as leather.

mainly for tourists who like roman style just for the ambient but the price is too high compared to what they offer. il posto non vale il conto che ti presentano, tantomeno le pietanze. Non lo consiglio decisamente.More

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
