About
The Antica Caciara Trasteverina is an ancient shop in the heart of Rome whose name was given by the same "transteverins": here, in fact, the shepherds broght their cheeses (called "caci" or "caciotte") from the roman countryside. The shop, founded in 1900, is run today by Roberto Polica and his wife Anna. Roberto, thanks to the passion inherited by his father Antonio and his grandfather Albino, lets know to all his clients hand-made and high quality italian products. Professionality and kindness make the Antica Caciara Trasteverina a shop loved not only by the romans, but by all the people who visited it once in a life.

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded postcard, a little worn around the edges but still charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of entertainment - a rotating set of street performers entertains almost every night, and unforgettable eateries and bars pepper its piazzas and side streets. For a trip to the past, visit the southern and western flanks of Trastevere for pockets of yesteryear, less traversed areas with a residual 1960s and 70s Roman vibe.

Great experience
Jul 2020 • Family
Super helpful people! We bought cheese in San Gimignano that was vacuum sealed, but somehow the seal broke (or maybe it just wasn’t a great vacuuming job). We wandered all over town trying to find someone who was willing to help us out, and no one was. These guys had no problem re-vacuuming our cheese, and we bought three more kinds from them, all perfectly sealed to take home with us. All of this with smiles and advice for what we should try next! 😊

Wonderful Products and Friendly People
Dec 2019
We stopped in twice during our Christmas Trip in Trastevere. The people are warm and friendly and the meats, cheeses, and breads are top notch. Highly recommend learning a few italian phrases and stopping in for an authentic experience.

Cheese heaven
Oct 2019
All I can say is I went back to this place 4 times in my 7 days I was in Italy. 3 for more cheese and 1 time for bread. I wanted to buy pork cheek but was advised that I can't bring it back into the US. I was grateful for that since they could have easily had me learn the hard way.
I believe I purchased 6 different cheeses and the store shrink wrapped it for me to bring back home. The store has many varieties of cheese, wine, pasta and meats for everyone to sample and buy. I am so glad we found this place.

Lovely place and people
Jun 2019
Wonderful and much-loved deli in Trastevere. As I was paying for my cheese a large group of American young people came in, presented the owner with a photo, and received hugs and kisses from him. Place has shot to my "number one" for meat and cheese in Trastevere, which is where we always stay in Rome.

If Cheers were a cheese and charcuterie shoo
Sep 2019 • Friends
This is the place where everyone would know your name if you lived in trastevere and wanted great cheese and charcuterie. The folks who work here are kind and welcoming without any attitude whatsoever. The only vibe here is how can I help you and share some of this wonderful tasty culinary goodness. The folks here will make amazing simple yet delectable sandwiches here for you. A bottle of good wine and two sandwiches sets you back about 20 euros, which is a steal based on the quality of the food and booze and the kind and welcoming staff. This is a great place to come for a picnic or if you’ve just had too much to eat but still want a little something something because when you are in Rome, you still must dine as the Romans do. Can’t say enough great things about this place. Simple. Delicious. Kind. Welcoming.

Perfect Local cheeses, cured meats and wine served with passion
Aug 2019 • Couples
Home-cured delicacies, regional specialities and a family business that is truly passionate in all they do. It’s a pleasure to be here and let the staff explain the stories behind the incredible flavours on the shelves. I fill my suitcase up here every time I have to leave Italy.

Incredible cheese shop
Apr 2019 • Couples
What an amazing place in an adorable neighborhood! We bought some incredible cheese and salumi from here (try the Truffle Pecorino). The staff are incredibly friendly but didn't speak much English. 100 grams is a nice amount to sample if you want to try a handful of different things.
