Trastevere, Rome’s oldest neighborhood, is where authenticity and delicious food intersect. Away from the bustling tourist areas, Trastevere remains hotel-free, providing an unfiltered Roman experience.

Stroll along cobblestone streets, immerse yourself in historic ambiance, and discover local eateries untouched by the tourist rush. In Trastevere, a pro tip for ensuring authenticity is to note the duration of your meal service. The longer your food takes to arrive from the kitchen, the better the indication of its authenticity—a testament to the locals savoring their time and crafting each dish with care. While in other countries the wait time for you meal plays a huge role in the service, it is a known fact that the longer your food takes, the better it’s guaranteed to be.

If you want to experience eating and staying in Rome like a local, book an airbnb. There are no hotels in the neighborhood, but you can find a few quaint airbnbs. The homes are as authentic as the meals themselves.

To give you some options ahead of time, savor the offerings at Da Enzo al 29, a trattoria renowned for its Roman classics and inviting ambiance. We also suggest, indulging in traditional flavors at Trattoria Da Lucia.
