This place is absolutely great. We stumbled upon it walking from our Airbnb one afternoon. It’s got a great atmosphere and plenty of tables without feeling crowded. It’s modern feeling and the staff are absolutely lovely. They greeted us with a glass of prosecco and...More

Last night of our five night stay in Rome. Diner at many different restaurants but this was by far my favourite. Lovely 50s interior with potted chilli plants and herbs adorning the tables. Every dish we had was exquisite. Pasta was simple and uncomplicated, but...More

This was the last restaurant my family and I visited during our vacation. Reservations is a must as the restaurant is full throughout the evening. The house wine was excellent at 13€ for a liter. I had the octopus kebabs and I couldn't keep my...More

We were lucky enough to get a table for 2 after a few minutes waiting, and I'm so glad we did. The standout for me was the meridionale starter (with zucchini/courgette and tomatoes) - seems so simple, but the ingredients really sang. (My wife had...More

The restaurant has a very nice cozy terrace with only a couple of tables so be sure to book in advance. The waiters are nice and polite. The food was spectacular, really fine dining and very tasty. Will come back for sure.

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

MERIDIONALE because our cuisine is a Mediterranean one, food and wines from Roma to south of Italy. And MERIDIONALE because we two, partners and chefs, are from the south of Italy, Sasa from Calabria, Massimo from Napoli. So, now and again, good, genuine and creative Italian southern food (appetizers, pasta, soup, meat, fish, vegetables, salads, desserts) and good and selected Italian southern wines are here for you. And our trattoria is a very nice place in the hearth of Trastevere, the most peculiar area ("rione") in Roma; it's light, simple, clean and with a touch of our personal style.
