Alle Fratte di Trastevere Review

Here you find staple Roman trattoria fare as well as dishes with a southern slant. This means spaghetti alla carbonara (with pancetta, eggs, and cheese) shares the menu with penne alla Sorrentina (with tomato, basil, and fresh mozzarella). For starters, the bruschette here are exemplary, as is the pressed octopus carpaccio on a bed of arugula. As for secondi, you can again look to the sea for a grilled sea bass with oven-roasted potatoes, or go for the meat with a fillet al pepe verde (green peppercorns in a brandy cream sauce). Service is always with a smile, as owner Francesco and his trusted staff make you feel at home.

    A decent place in the touristic part of Trastevere

    We had a fairly decent dinner, of which the octopus carpaccio was the best dish. Good value overall.

    A Gem in Trastevere

    My wife and I had a wonderful dinner in this trattoria while visiting Rome. Tucked into a side street this restaurant is everything a traveler from a city know for it's restaurants, is looking for. I started with an antipasto of tiny clams and muscles. Very fresh and sweet, I couldn't leave any of the white wine and garlic sauce (used the bread to sop up every drop). My wife had tomato and mozzarella with basil that was wonderful. The pasta that followed was terrific. We shared fresh ravioli with meat filling and penne with a fresh tomato sauce. The secondi was veal...picante for my wife and saltimbuca for me. Beautifully prepared, flavorful, wonderful sauce. I know we had dessert, but I didn't eat much of it, opting to savor the last glass of wine and enjoy the surroundings. Service was attentive, friendly and helpful, but not intrusive. We never felt rushed. All in all, I have to say if you want an excellent dining experience, in a true Roman trattoria, Alle Fratte is the place to go.

    Best restaurant in Trastevere!

    We were going to another restaurant and it was booked. We found this restaurant 2 blocks away and it was the best food on the trip. A must is the buffala monzarella brushetta and the Pasta Bolognese.

    Alle Fratte di Trastevere Review

    I had a gnocchi dish here that was enjoyable. I don't think I would go back as I would want to try other places perhaps less frequented by Americans (like me)

    Alle Fratte di Trastevere Review

    When I look at the reviews it is like I ate at a different restaurant. We picked it because it was a Fodor's Choice and it was the worst meal of our trip. We ordered olives and cheese as an appetizer and it turned out to be canned black olives and what seemed to be swiss and cheddar cheese. Awful. The prosciutto and mozzerella was ok but the prosciutto was a little dried out. I had grilled chicken which was a chicken breast grilled plain with no spices, sauces etc. and over salted roast potatoes. The rest of our entrees were equally dismal with the possible exception of the penne carbonara which was slightly better. There was a huge party (15+) in our room so our service was not so hot either.

    Friendly staff but catering more to tourists than locals. It opens early for dinner at 7PM. In no way memorable
