We sat outside with our large family and enjoyed good food, friendly service and a beautiful setting. The kids had delicious pizzas and the adults ate grilled fish and meats. We'd highly recommend this charming traditional restaurant.

This is probably the worse dinning experience I have ever had. We went with a large group. The food was literally thrown at some of us without an apology. The waiters were extremely rude and swore in Italian to several of us; in particular when...More

It was a lovely evening, nice warm weather, pleasant pizza, enough space between tables and good service. I enjoyed my pizza and birra, not cheap, however sometimes you pay for the atmosphere. An evening to remember.

We had the caprese salad, it seemed to be a go to for us due to the heat. We also had the Mercanti special pasta, similar to a Cabanara. It was very good. The prices were very reasonable and the service was excellent.

We made a special visit to Mercanti just to eat at this restaurant as it was recommended by a friend, it's well off the beaten track and around the back streets of the city. When we first arrived (around 18:30) the restaurant was virtually deserted,...More

I had a simple but perfect steak in this enchanting restaurant. One of the prettiest in Rome...off the beaten track but close to the heart of Trastevere. I will for sure be coming back to eat here.

I recognize that it is never easy to serve a big group. We were served a platter of appetizers which was fine. The pizza that followed was quite ordinary. The main course of chicken braised in red wine sauce was not bad but wasn't that...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
