Need Six Trastevere Meals for Writers in Hiding

Margaret Santa Monica | Nov 20, 2012 08:47 AM

Headed for a week in Trastevere - leaving in a few days - with a writer friend to finish a book. So we will be two women eating for a week around there, and though food is not meant to be the main agenda of the trip, knowing me I will obsess...

Coincidentally spent last week in the same area for the Rome Cinemafest, enjoying meals at Roscioli, Nonna Betta, and someplace in Testaccio that I forget but was great.

Didn't get to try Paris and Antico Arco, where I had reserved, but ate too much at lunch for dinner those nights.

Have stayed on and off in the area for ten years, only a few days at a time. I had a nice Easter dinner at Sabatini once, and many pizzas at bir i fud. Have walked by Antica Pesa ten times but never had the nerve to go in, it seemed so quiet.

So what should I be reserving for Sunday through Friday, blowing out lunch or dinner but probably not both...? Should I return to Nonna Betta or try another carciofi fry place? Is it finally time for Antico Arco and Glass? Should I try Antica Pesa finally?

Am I missing the point? Give me your top six in Trastevere, knowing that I have read every Trastevere thread on the board. My friend eats meat, I don't, but I can make do usually anywhere.

Thanks, guys!
