There are a lot better places to eat. It felt like a tourist trap with people squeezed in so tight you felt like you were touching your neighbors shoulder. Its more for the entertainment value than the food.

We had lamb and steak dishes which were ok no complaints but no wow effect either. The service wasn't very nice and bit rude even. Surprisingly the bread and the water did also cost and we didn't even have any olive oil with the bread....More

I understand the attraction this place, but it isn't the food. The outdoor area is lively and raucous, which makes you want to sit down and join in the fun. One of the wait staff sings insults to the patrons, accompanied by music. But that's...More

We saw it full the night before when we had an amazing dinner nearby and decided to try it. It was a deception, at least price was ok. Olive oil comes in a tiny plastic bottle like in a flight, balsamico on a single serving....More

Complete tourist trap. The restaurant is very pretty and that coupled with the 15 euro set menu was enough to draw us in. In hindsight we should have looked around a bit more. The pasta dishes were ok, as were the desserts. The issues with...More

We visited as they were promoting a set menu which included a first, second course and dessert with all the water and bread you wanted. While ordering we stated we were going to get from this menu, however we were not given bread until we...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
