In an interesting area of Trastevere, short walk from Ponte Sisto.There's a very nice area for outside seating, and the food is generally good (just not amazing). It may have been our fault for going early (i.e. 7:30 pm) but the place was just swarming with families with kids running around and fighting-- it felt like a pre-school. Italian service... More

I am very sorry that the children are disturbed by it but this does not depend on our will, perhaps the waiters were just a little bit of confusion. Stefania More

The restaurant is in the Trastevere area few hundred meter from ponte Sisto bridge. It is a typical vintage Roman trattoria. It is a famous place. You can find numbers of photos of famous people on the walls frequenting the place since the '60. While we were having lunch we had Roberto Benigni at the table at our side. Concerning... More

We had dinner here without a reservation, but they were nice and found us a table. We ate the typical Roman "carciofo alla Giudia" (fried artichoke) and "abbacchio a scottadito" (grilled lamb) and finished with a wonderful dessert (tiramisu'). A very good choice.

This is an age old restaurant, with pictures and posters dating back to the 1930's. The restaurant I suspect hasn't materially changed forever. Menu offer is tradional fare and served by wonderful staff who have been there for many years. My spaghetti vongole was fab followed by roast lamb and potatoes. Finished off with mixed berries and ice cream. Could... More

Although the welcome was a bit cooler than it is in other restaurants in Rome, my lunch here was certainly a memorable experience. Eating in a small courtyard under the shade of an orange tree made the lunch visually memorable; the food was impressive in its attention to detail, with nary a false note. Although the prices are on the... More

Definitely worth a visit. Every bit as good, if not better, than the reviews. The pasta dishes were simply outstanding. Good atmosphere and friendly staff. Great value for money. A place I will go back to.

We wanted to eat where there was history, style and personality as well as genuine, traditional Roman food. Look no further. Checco er Carretiere ticks all the boxes. We loved it all. From the layout of the different rooms where one could choose to eat to the hundreds of photographs of guests past that adorn the walls. The food and... More

The venue is divided into the osteria to the right and the restaurant straight on. We were seated at the dividing point, at the entrance where there is no one to welcome you. Later on we heard a waiter talk to locals seated next to us which menu they wanted. They didn't ask us this. "What is the difference?" they... More

Dear Diego, I'm sorry, but that was the only table available, and you did not have a reservation. The customer next to you had a reservation at Osteria, but unfortunately it was in a wheel chair and not to cause him difficulty we put it at the restaurant, of course, suggesting the the tavern menu.

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.
