Cesare al Casaletto

Italian in Trastevere & Gianicolo

This no-frills trattoria is the darling of locals and food critics. Cesare shines in the art of cucina romana (Roman cuisine): choose from cones of fried seafood, glossy carbonara thick with guanciale pork, slow-braised oxtail, or tripe cooked in tomato sauce. Make sure to book in advance – it’s nearly impossible to snag a table without a reservation.
