Place is always pleasant, especially the indoor area, great service with very attentive staff but the quality of the food has unfortunately gone down and none of the food ordered was anything special. Appetizers were ok but the bottarga was way too salty, the steak tartare was cold and tasteless, pasta had too much garlic and the dessert salty/sweet was... More

Don't go by 1st impressions! From the outside it's a door with a name. Enter and you are in a small waiting area, kind of like a living room with a fireplace, then a small staircase to your right. Once the Maitre d' comes for you and walks you downstairs to your table you are wow'd!....you would never guess there... More

I was asked to serve and set up various teams to work the first aid stations at the 4 major Basilicas in Rome. While working at Sta Maria Maggiore, I asked one of my Italian co workers, a wonderful man from Rome, what he considered the best restaurant in his home town. Without a pause he said Antica Pesa. He... More

I had the most amazing truffle nest as appetizer and everything was just absolutely great. The carbonara, my twin of 8yr old finished the entire plate of shrimp pasta and the... More

This resto is located on the hearth Rome. It is there since the 1920s and represents the continuity of traditional roman cousine. The place is extremely well decorated with tradition leading the way and contemporary art (with some Mark Kostabi pieces) providing a great added value . The dishes reflects the roman popular tradition but are revisited without changing their... More

We were the first to arrive and warmly greeted and shown to some comfy chairs next to the fire. A few minutes later we were taken down a corridor and into a large cavern dining room, tables beautifully laid out, mood lighting and with walls decorated with bright modern art. Wonderful ambience! This was obviously a place that has pride... More

The food and wine were very good, and for a good value. Maybe expensive for Italy, but not compared to Paris prices. The location... More

It is one of the "traditional" restaurant of Rome, definitively worth a visit. The food is good from the local Roman cuisine (and neighborhood) a bit revisited. Among the appetizer, my suggestion goes for the "Gita fuori porta", a selection of local hams and cheese nicely prepared. Also, very good as main dish both the lamb plate as well as... More

This is the kind of restaurant you go once because you've heard of it, have the experience and don't go again. Was recommended by a friend and we gave it a shot. You must make a reservation and should not miss it. The ambience is really nice, with the paintings on the walls and seating. Waiters are good and I... More

Wow this was a disappointment. My sea bass was severely overcooked and under seasoned as was my husband's veal. The highlight of our meals was my appetizer which was artichoke and ricotta in a pastry shell. It was heaven on a plate. My husband ordered the appetizer that was called something like a taste of the Italian countryside and it... More

Giving always attention to meet the changing course of the latest trends, the restaurant has the culinary agility to anchor the current fashion to the heritage of the rules and quality of the food products, maintaining the delicate equilibrium between discretion and popularity. In this way, we assure our guests to be present, without appearing. The original customs officer and the modern host, preserving the historic mission of the place, have been followed by a family known as connoisseurs of taste: the perfection of the proposed cuisine, offered in an ambiance enhanced by the beauty of the great artworks and the meticulous attention for each guest, so to guarantee an exclusive atmosphere combined with the warmth of a comforting familiarity. Our guest, no matter from which movie set arrives, or for how long hasn’t come, is always welcomed with a smile, a shake of hand, a delicious meal accompanied by an excellent wine and with the warmth of the art surrounding this fascinating angle of Rome. We know well that what the body nurtures is not foreign to the soul.

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.
