If you visit the eternal city, one of the first questions that come to your mind is: “Where to eat in Rome?”
For Romans, food and wine are two very important things, so Rome is full of wonderful restaurants, trattorias, takeaway pizzerias, coffee, and gelato bars. Moreover, the quality of food and the service in any restaurant doesn’t depend on whether it is a tourist place or not.
However, you should understand that if you want to eat in the historic center, you have to be ready to pay at least 50 euros for two people. Moreover, there will be a high commission for service, from 5 to 8 euros.
All locals know that Trastevere area is famous for its restaurants and prices. If you want to try Italian food with the atmosphere of the old city without paying too much, welcome to Trastevere District!
If you are in Rome, don’t miss the chance to visit Hosteria Del Moro Da Tony. Located in Trastevere Neighborhood, the hosteria offers high-quality Italian Food for relatively low prices with generous portions, which you can share between two people. Moreover, they have a classic Italian interior and friendly staff.
I usually go to Impicetta with my friends when they come to visit Rome. Compared to Carlo Menta (listed below), you can order any dish here, not only spaghetti. However, if you want to go to this restaurant, you have to make a reservation in advance.
In my rating of the best pizzerias in Rome, Dar Poeta has first place. Therefore, I recommend starting your meeting with an Italian pizza in Dar Poeta. However, you will probably have to wait a bit because there are usually queues at this restaurant.
For today, Carlo Menta is the cheapest place in relation to price quality, where you can have lunch or dinner in Trastevere. I recommend you try Italian pasta in this restaurant. For sure, you should try their home lasagna (lasagna fatte in casa), spaghetti alla carbonara, and penne Carlo Menta. Soups, pizzas, and other dishes are also good but not as special as pasta. Also, I recommend you to try their homemade wine (vino della casa), which costs 8 euros per 1l. However, the price of the pasta is only 7 euros.

In addition, the wine menu isn’t big but carefully chosen with fair prices. Unfortunately, the restaurant doesn’t work on Wednesdays.

A restaurant is particularly suitable for those who want to eat dishes made from fish. Sa Tanca Crostaceria has a very special decor distinguished by the gold-colored chairs, soft lighting, luxury carpets, Flemish-style paintings, and a series of elements that create a luxurious atmosphere. Moreover, all waiters are attentive and helpful, which is one of the strongest points of the restaurant, along with the offers on the menu.
