Z'Imberto Review

Under a brightly lit awning covering a lively Trastevere piazza, you find the kind of casual trattoria one expects to stumble upon in every Italian seaside village: locals waiting for tables, a bustling casual setting, and ebullient servers pushing heaping plates of fresh seafood and pasta. Here, waiters serve with a smile and a wink, joking with clients while dishing out large portions of the house specialty: local seafood. Of course, traditional Roman meat staples are present on the menu, but really, with itsy-bitsy baby calamari the size of a fingertip fried up so perfectly, why stick to the standards? Pastas with all varieties of sea creatures abound, as do main plates of swordfish and grilled calamari. But we think the best plan is to order up the mixed house seafood antipasto for the table, order some salads and a couple of pastas to share, and close the meal with samplings from frosty bottles of digestivi planted firmly on your table. This is what they meant when they coined the term la dolce vita.

    Z'Imberto Review

    Reservation is a must if you plan on eating at this establishment.  This quaint little seafood and pasta restaurant is average at best.  The wine selection is limited (red or white house wine), bread and water  is placed upon your table once you are seated, and it is a potluck whether you receive sparkling or still water.  The cost is 7€ for this service at no choice to you.  The meal was good. Seating rustic, unstable chairs and tables.  Overall, l  would eat here again as a walk-by diner.  Not worth the time for reservations.
