I choose this place because I've been to Sicily and love its cuisine. The service was outstanding and the place was packed with locals, so it must be quite popular. I tried pasta with sardines, which unfortunately was not as good as the one in...More

Yum, and very attentive service. It's odd how some staff don't bother to learn other languages when working specifically to cater to tourists. There are some delicious food highlights. The shared antipasto is a big hit. Then go for pistachio sauce on pasta

Visited whilst on holiday in Rome. Local restaurant with a nice feel to the place. Fresh tasty pasta and serving mainly fish dishes. The menu is only in Italian but our waiter spoke English and was very helpful in making recommendations. Overall a nice place.

This is a real gem near the parks on the West side of Trastevere - authentic, simple, full-flavour Sicilian food. Try the capponata (which they serve warm) or any of the pastas that they serve. It's not on a busy street, but it's probably better...More

Above the city on the Janiculum hill, Monteverde is
Rome’s popular "getaway" neighbourhood, coveted for
its greenery. Rome's largest urban park, Villa
Pamphili, is the area's centrepiece with affordable
prices and peace and quiet. Monteverde is just far
enough away from the centre to feel like you’re on a
Roman holiday and close enough to feel the lure of
Rome's chaos. Though its downside is the lack of
