Average pasta. As Anthony Bourdain said when he presents this restaurant on TV, why did he kill everything he loves and he killed this place unfortunately . Our waiter upstairs was absolutely and positively the worst and strangest waiter I’ve had in 40 years of...More

We ordered the Fried Zucchini Flowers, stuffed with delicious molten Mozzarella and tasty anchovies, one of the best in Rome. Then went for their signature dish, Cacio e Pepe and weren’t disappointed. Mouthwatering from the first bite. Eat the crispy Parmesan bowl where the Pasta...More

Roma Sparita was recommended to us by friends you frequent Italy often - and I'm so glad we took their advice. We arrived at the restaurant around 6:45pm and we're turned away (because they weren't open yet). Fortunately we didn't hear them say that they...More

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

English menu yes; it gets a lot of tourists. Gluten free: I have no idea but I do remember that the menu extended well beyond caccio e Pepe

Sorry. I don't remember. Personally, I liked da Enzo down the street. No reservations there, you have to get there when they open and put your name on a list. I felt like Roma Sparita was touristy. They got a lot of... More

Good food is served in a comfortable environment. The outdoor space in the main square is really unique in Rome and can take place about 90 people. The inside spaces are two very welcoming hall: the entrance hall of about 30/35 people and the other room can accommodate more than 60 others.
