Our server Antonio (with help from Sara and Andrea) was very knowledgeable and fast! He also has a sense of humor. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was very cozy on a rainy November evening!!

An incredible place at the epicenter of touristic Trastevere. Yet, the quality of service and the excellent food makes it stand out from the other restaurants. Make sure that Antonio, Martina and Sara are serving you to really enjoy the traditional Roman cuisine. Enjoy.

We walked all around looking for a place for dinner. Came across Ostello and couldn’t have been more happy. The food was sensational and the service fantastic and friendly. Our servers Rosy and Gabriel went out of their way to even make sure our kids...had a great meal! So great! Definitely recommend!More

Trastevere is packed with moderate and inexpensive restaurants and teeming with tourists and locals who like to eat. Otello has a justifiable reputation for good food, a caring staff and reasonable prices. They don't take reservations, so it is wise to arrive early. The staff...works hard, and as we witnessed today, can be nearly overwhelmed when they reach capacity. So please be patient. The artichokes, jewish style, are a masterpiece, alone worth the visit. The Carbonarq reminiscent of a mac and cheese, only a hundred times better. Short dessert list, but house made. The panna cotta delightful. It would take more than a year to try all the places in Trastevere. You would do well to start here.More

I had heard about this popular place. I can understand why it is popular food is not overpriced and their excellent Amarone wine made me and my wife visit the restaurant 2 times during last trip. The trick to get a good seat and not...have to stand in the line is to come to the restaurant about 19. At 1930 the line of hungry tourists and locals start to grove. Good service and excellent english spoken by a small girl waitress and the rest of the crewMore

We ordered the tagliata beef and for me it was the best in Rome. Also the cacio e Pepe pasta were delicious and the pasta fresh. Staff is very kind and measurements were taken so we really felt safe and taken care of!

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

Sorry, never used Metro, only buses, trams and taxis. Do not think Metro comes too near Trastevere

Hi, I do not work there, but I’m sure you can call them and make a reservation. We went on a Saturday night around 9pm and we had no reservations, but we were able to sit down in about 10-15 minutes.
