What is a must do when you come to Rome? Of course, to try local food and especially Roman pasta! There are many restaurants, tavernas and osterias that offer high quality pasta plates, but let’s talk about the best places.
Le mani in Pasta is one of the legendary places in Trastevere, where every local for sure knows about this restaurant. This place offers a variety from seafood to typical Roman dishes to meat, cheese and salami goodness, so allowing customers to find specialties that fully satisfy every taste preference. Lobster, seafood, tuna are cooked in many different ways and used to flavor delicious first courses made with fresh handmade pasta.
Roma Sparita gives you a chance to have a unique Roman experience, where all dishes are local, the atmosphere is amazing and there you will meet mostly locals rather than tourists. It is mandatory to make a reservation at least 2 days in advance since there are always many guests in the restaurant. Roma Sparita is famous for its Cacio e Pepe pasta, which is one of the main traditional Roman plates.
Nonna Betta is kosher-style restaurant with 2 separate menus. Respecting the Judaic Talmud rule that forbids mixing meat with dairy – a verse of the Torah says “Do not cook a kid in its mother’s milk” – at Nonna Betta dishes can be chosen from two separate menus: one featuring meat dishes, and one featuring fish or cheese. Moreover, even modern nutrition suggests not mixing meat protein and dairy. The Jewish Ghetto is famous for its kosher dishes and typical Roman plates, especially artichokes (pasta with artichokes is also amazing). In this place, immersed in a relaxed and welcoming setting, you can relive the stories of the Ghetto, and perhaps find answers to questions you “never dared to ask” regarding the Jewish culture, religion or the 2000 year-old presence of Jews in Rome.

Osteria da Fortunata is one of the most popular places in Rome where locals and tourists prefer to eat pasta. Don’t be surprised, if many people will suggest you this osteria for lunch or dinner. It is better to make a reservation in advance since there are always many guests.
The Hosteria dei Numeri Primi is the project of chef Stefano Dominici who, after making himself known and having accumulated twenty years of experience in the field of creative cuisine with the restaurant “Ai Fienaroli”, decided to return to his origins with a new project. The Hosteria reflects the style of modern Trastevere with a refined and minimalist atmosphere, trendy but linked to the cornerstones of the style that has always characterized the Trastevere charm. Besides typical Roman pasta dishes, you will find more creative and modern recipes of pasta that are so much delicious!
Actually, Pasta Chef al 42 is a street food place, but what a quality and taste! If you have a break between tours/museums/Roman points of interest discovering, stop by this cozy place to try local Italian pasta. The variety of pasta plates, prices and size of portions surprises a lot!
Taberna dei Gracchi offers an exceptional selection of Italian pasta and mains. Moreover, there is a good service and cozy atmosphere. It is better to book a table in advance. I recommend you to try their starters that perfectly complement with pasta and wine!
Taverna Antonina offers a cuisine based on fresh seafood with daily arrivals and Danish meat. There are also many traditional Roman dishes. In addition, I recommend this place for an excellent selection of wines, homemade desserts and service, amazing service! You should definitely try home-made Tagliatelle with duck breast ragout
and blueberry marmelade.
No one will stay hungry in Impiccetta! You can choose among small, medium and large size of portions. For you to understand, the “small” portion is already huge! The quality of food, taste, atmosphere, prices are simply amazing. However, make sure to make a reservation as much in advance as possible. From my experience, I love their lasagna and tiramisu.
Pimm’s Good is always in my list of places where to eat the most delicious pasta. It has an amazing location right in the heart of Trastevere district. Moreover, it is famous for its high quality cocktails and aperitivo. I’d say this is the place where all dishes are tasty, so don’t be afraid to make a wrong choice, you will like the food, I promise. Considering pasta, I recommend you to try Carbonara or Spaghetti all’Amatriciana. When I have free time, I always go only to Pimm’s for lunch or dinner. Also, try their cheesecake and tiramisu! Making a reservation in advance is not mandatory.
