This popular Osteria deserves a good review. First of all, do make reservations. They open for dinner at 7:30, and by 8 pm, the place is full, and potential customers get turned away. The menu is full of satisfying pasta dishes. The appetizers are pleasantly...More

Italian food is generally pretty good, but this place is even better. Spending 3 weeks in Rome, we went to this restaurant at least 5 times. Given I've only been to maybe 2 restaurants in Rome more than one (in maybe 20 visits), that's saying...More

Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
