Cinque Ristoranti Meno di Cinquanta Euros

(restaurants less than 50 Euros)

This ‘Bohemian’ section of Rome is known for its narrow cobbled streets lined by medieval houses. At night, both natives and tourists alike flock to its many pubs and restaurants. Many A&B clients, particularly honeymoon couples for some reason, often ask about this unqiue part of the Eternal city.  Here are  five favorite eateries that won’t break one bank:

Trattoria Degli Amici

A Special Restaurant for Special People in the Heart of the Trastevere Nightlife. I love this place run by Sant’ Egidio Community that helps disadvantaged and less fortunate people while serving really good food. Check with the sommelier, he does not drink wine but can tell from your face if the bottle is good!  Best Bets: Cod Maccheroni | Cous Cous

Price 35€ | Gambero Rosso 2010 Excellent Value for Money

Osteria La Gensola

Located in the Charming Piazza in Piscinula La Gensola Offers Excellent Food
Best Bets: Roman Traditional Dishes | Shellfish
Price 50€ | Gambero Rosso 2010 Rating 75/100

Minnetti in Trastevere

One of our favorites. Chef Roberto Minnetti serves real Tuscan food in the heart of Rome! With the short but really good wine list ( the chef has a place on a wine estate–Poggio Antico– in Tuscany too!  Best Bets: Veal Tripe | 100 Egg Pasta | Peposa Stew
Price 40€ | Excellent Value for Money | Guida L’Espresso 2010 Rating 13/20

This is a very good trattoria with typical Roman food and low prices.
