We found Ponentino 6 years ago and have come back many, many times, over the years. This year we discovered that most of the wait staff is newly employed, and the food, which used to be totally fabulous, has become very ordinary. Fortunately, we brought...More

It was our last night in Rome before heading back home to America. We waited to be acknowledged to even sit down. They were not busy in fact it was about 5:00 local time. They finally seat us and we had a long wait to...More

Me, my boyfriend and his sister and fiance decided to come here for an evening meal as we had heard it was cheap but really nice. We waited outside the restaurant for at least 20 minutes for a table. We were vaguely acknowledged whilst couples...More

Chance upon this place while visiting some attraction in the area. The food was affordable and good to enjoy. Surprise to see no cover charge as we didn't take the bread as we ordered too many dishes for 2 pax. Would recommend this place if...More

Food was fine but nothing interesting really. Service was quick but not very cheerful. Maybe they were having a bad day. Anyhow, if you don't have anywhere else to eat, that will do.

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
