A charming and local Italian restaurant
Right off of Piazza Trilussa, Sottosopra is a modern restaurant with a hint of rustic chic. With delicious drinks and a great wine card, their strength is definitely in the long menu of focacce they serve. In case you need reminding, the “focaccia” is the crunchy, yet soft white round pizza usually topped with olive oil and oregano- YUM, I know. At Sottosopra though, they do more than just olive oil and oregano. You’ll be able to choose between combinations that include prosciutto, zucchini, mozzarella, tomatoes, and more. Now imagine snacking on that as you sip your wine, could it get any better?

An experience at da Enzo’s is about as close to a home-cooked meal in nonna’s kitchen as you are likely to find in Trastevere. Starkly-lit and strictly no-frills, this authentic trattoria keeps loyal patrons coming back for more thanks to its quality, rustic dishes. Think Roman primi classics including Cacio e Pepe and Amatriciana, as well as decadent meatballs in rich tomato sauce.

When in Rome, do as the Romans do, which means abandoning any preconceived notions of sampling thick-crusted pizza; here it’s all about doing it thin! Perhaps one of Rome’s most iconic and recognised pizzerie, Ai Marmi has been serving tasty, no-frills pizzas for decades in its very casual and relaxed environment. A favourite of ours is the margherita with gooey buffalo mozzarella.

If you are looking for cool, you don’t get much closer to the definition than Freni e Frizioni. Located in a typical Italian building with a mini-piazza adjacent, this flash haunt is where people go to be seen. While Freni e Frizioni’s aperitivo buffet is well-known by locals, this place is best for its originally-prepared cocktails, which are all garnished, drizzled, or flamed with unique ingredients.
