Good location Food fairly good Tourist trap The guy came up to us and sort of talked us into doubling the portion of their most expensive appetizer (64€) and a 40€ bottle of wine. Somewhat my fault but we had just sat down and he...More

We've been regulars of this establishment for a long time - whenever in Rome. This year will be our last visit to Sabatini. Food was uninspiring, service was non descript and above all very expensive considering the lack of quality. The whole place has the...More

Please stay away. Food not bad, but much more expensive than we thought. small glasses of wine 10 & 14 euros plus a large service charge. So many waiters should have been a warning an very few customers.

There are many rip off restaurants in Trastevere but this takes the biscuit. Be aware they add a hefty service charge on top of the very high prices - almost €20 for a few drinks.

The location of this restaurant is the only thing I liked about it, but it's obviously a tourist trap. The food was average at best, but comes at a premium price. I've had much much better meals in Rome for far less. Do not recommend.

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
