Dropped by on a busy Friday evening without a reservation but keen to eat outside somewhere. From the moment we arrived and throughout the staff were both charming and could not have been more helpful. Even though frenetic they found us a table in their...More

The rich and famous may eat here but it is not worth it for anyone else. Poor service and the food is average tasting and expensive.

The food was tasty. The wine selection looks impressive but the availability is limited. We had to change our white wine after the first bottle because they ran out stock.

We very much enjoyed our visit to Antica Pesa. Whilst at the pricier end of restaurants we visited and food was mind blowing, the courtyard provided the perfect setting for an adult date night (not a place for the kids), service was friendly & helpful,...More

This is the second time I've visited this restaurant. The first one was six years ago. I was not disappointed for coming back. Sitting outside surrounded by plants and characteristic buildings of Rome is the first advantage of this place. I can imagine that sitting...More

Antica Pesa is a very unassuming restaurant from the outside. The surrounding area is quiet and the buildings a little worn. As you go in through the various rooms you come into the eating area which with a retractable roof reveals the Rome sky to...More

I just ate at Antica Pesa for the first time, and it was mediocre and overpriced. Rack of lamb was 28 Euros; I ordered it medium rare, and it arrived well done. I've eaten better at neighborhood trattorias for a third of the price. Although...More

Antica Pesa came highly recommended by friends and the St. Regis Hotel. The food throughout the night was average, nothing that I remember or would I say "have the XXXX, it was amazing". Wine "book" list is silly, they don't carry half of the wines,...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

We went on a Saturday evening so people tended to be dressed up as they were there for celebrations (birthdays etc). I think in general it would be classed as "smart casual" because it is not cheap and it's probably... More

Giving always attention to meet the changing course of the latest trends, the restaurant has the culinary agility to anchor the current fashion to the heritage of the rules and quality of the food products, maintaining the delicate equilibrium between discretion and popularity. In this way, we assure our guests to be present, without appearing. The original customs officer and the modern host, preserving the historic mission of the place, have been followed by a family known as connoisseurs of taste: the perfection of the proposed cuisine, offered in an ambiance enhanced by the beauty of the great artworks and the meticulous attention for each guest, so to guarantee an exclusive atmosphere combined with the warmth of a comforting familiarity. Our guest, no matter from which movie set arrives, or for how long hasn’t come, is always welcomed with a smile, a shake of hand, a delicious meal accompanied by an excellent wine and with the warmth of the art surrounding this fascinating angle of Rome. We know well that what the body nurtures is not foreign to the soul.
