Trastevere is where the locals and foreigners rub shoulders, and where a restaurant has to satisfy the locals and entice the foreigners in order to survive. MArco G achieves this with comprehensive menu offering the regular Roman fare complemented by interesting variations, all at competitive prices. WIne list is well thought out. Homely atmosphere, friendly attentive and professional staff, lots... More

You won't just stumble upon this place-you'll need to have a decent map. I was the only non-Roman in this neighborhood place. I sat outside, as it was too cold for the locals! I enjoyed the service and especially the

A friend of mine who was in Rome a few months before me told me if I do anything in Rome, I had to go to Marco G. My friend was right. If you are looking for a classic Italian dinner in Rome, this is the best place to visit. The staff is friendly and the food is home made... More

Great food, great service. Booked table for 8 in search of classic dishes. The place was filled with locals and it was easy to see why! The servers were attentive and the food was served quickly.

Found this through google map search of restaurants near our flat. Nice find! On a quiet street in Trastevere, so sitting outside doesn't have the people watching as others do, but the dining room is lovely. The three course tasting menu is a great value at 26 euro. You get an antipasti platter with meats, cheeses, deep fried veggies, and... More

Had a very delicious dinner. We had octopus, zucchini flower and ravioli. The ravioli is really good. Service is very good too. This restaurant is one of a handful of superb ones we ate two weeks in Italy.

We enjoyed a nice and tasteful dinner at Marco G, and chose the tasting menu with appetizers (3 cheeses, ham, fried vegetables), two kinds of pasta (cacio e pepe and amatriciana) and 4 small desserts (tiramisù, zabaione, panna cotta and fruit macedonia). At 26 EUR per person, considering the quantity and quality, it was a nice meal. Waiters were welcoming... More

A really great restaurant that is very good value, has excellent service and serves great food. My fusilli with sausage and truffle was freshly cooked, served hot and absolutely delicious. The host was extremely gracious and the overall experience first class.

We walked in from a down pour and the wait staff we very accommodating, making jokes and bringing me a chair to dry my wet things. The food surpasses expectations, we shared the brusschetta gorgonzola and Italian cheeses with honey board which were amazing. We had the truffle carbonara and pumpkin ravioli, rich and flavoursome! By far the best all... More

Staying in Trastevere

Neighbourhood Profile
Trastevere
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.
