The good: I found Glass Hostaria to be very inventive in its flavor combinations. The service was attentive (sometimes a bit too much) and the ingredients fresh. The highlight for me was the apple and scallop appetizer. The not so good: - The chef obviously...More

I was looking forward to our first Michelin star restaurant in Rome. But I found it to be on the disappointing side. There is no issue with the freshness of the ingredients used and the attention to details. These are all excellent. But I was...More

I wanted somewhere special for my birthday so a Michelin starred restaurant seemed a good choice. Service was friendly and efficient and the food was fun and tasty. I loved the Pisco shot. The amatriciana pasta with crispy bacon was my highlight. The wine pairings...More

Saved this for our last supper in Rome - the food was delicious!! Highly recommend the tasting menu, so good and doesn't leave you feeling too too stuffed as some other tasting menus do. They have a super wine menu too

The decor of glass is the opposite of the atmosphere of trestavere which is hip and old. The food was excellent and quite dinstinctive. I recommend the spaghetti bottarga and the grilled fish. Very highly recommended

A contemporary place in a pedestrian area teeming with tourist traps. Very good indeed but somehow falls short of Michelin standard. Excellent food that is perfectly executed but some points were a bit blah- touch too much sauce in the pasta stuffed with amatriciana sauce...More

Visited this place in june 2013. Fantastic experience. Best food I've ever had and the vine menu was also extremely appropriate to each of the 6 courses. Highly recommended!!

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

Glass Hostaria restaurant in Rome’s Trastevere quarter is an eye-full for lovers of superhot modern design. Set in one of Rome’s oldest, most atmospheric neighbourhoods, Glass Hostaria’s fabulous high-concept dining space with its soaring ceilings, open staircase, part-glass floor, sleek seating and stunning gold-filled niches contrasted with raw brick pillars and original beamed ceiling has won accolades and international attention. The Italian menu under the direction of Cristina Bowerman is an inventive balance of then and now, with dishes like starter of foie gras with caramelized bananas (yes, that’s right) and brioche, first course of risotto with oysters, crème fraîche and crunchy artichokes, second course of pork filet with quinoa, smoked tomatoes and orange sauce, and dessert of chocolate cake with rosemary ice cream. The tasting menus are good value and the wine list has over six hundred labels on offer. Hire of this venue would make a superb site for stylish launches or sophisticated parties. The service is excellent and, after dinner, Glass Hostaria turns into a wine bar, so you can linger on and on.
