Although the welcome was a bit cooler than it is in other restaurants in Rome, my lunch here was certainly a memorable experience. Eating in a small courtyard under the shade of an orange tree made the lunch visually memorable; the food was impressive in its attention to detail, with nary a false note. Although the prices are on the... More

Definitely worth a visit. Every bit as good, if not better, than the reviews. The pasta dishes were simply outstanding. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Great value for money. A place I will go back to.

We wanted to eat where there was history, style and personality as well as genuine, traditional Roman food. Look no further. Checco er Carretiere ticks all the boxes. We loved it all. From the layout of the different rooms where one could choose to eat to the hundreds of photographs of guests past that adorn the walls. The food and... More

The venue is divided into the osteria to the right and the restaurant straight on. We were seated at the dividing point, at the entrance where there is no one to welcome you. Later on we heard a waiter talk to locals seated next to us which menu they wanted. They didn't ask us this. "What is the difference?" they... More

Dear Diego, I'm sorry, but that was the only table available, and you did not have a reservation. The customer next to you had a reservation at Osteria, but unfortunately it was in a wheel chair and not to cause him difficulty we put it at the restaurant, of course, suggesting the the tavern menu.

this is one of the most amazing places to dine that i have ever been to. The dishes are exceptional as was the wine. The pasta dishes with fish were fantastic as was the veal dishes. A totally worthwhile experience. This place has been here for many, many years and serves the freshest of fresh food. Everything is good!

We were recommended to this restaurant by a local, the owner of our small hotel, 6 years ago and we had an excellent meal. The gnocchi was especially good. We arrived in Rome again this morning, a Thursday, so we sought out this place again for gnocchi. We were not disappointed. The artichoke a la giudia was also very good.... More

I can agree with carol186414. The place is full of locals, the food was above average but the prices were very expensive compared to other restaurants. Service was just ok. Nothing special, was good but you can find better place.

A grubby doorway, unswept entrance, set the scene for a very indifferent overpriced meal. Waiters barely managing to serve a undeservedly packed restaurant. Paper lying on the floor in the dining area. Wine list falling apart.

I'm really sorry for the impression you had of my restaurant. It will not be justified but the weekend was very pressing and perhaps I lost sight of something. Stefania More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
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 eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.
