In Trastevere there are many typical restaurants specializing in Roman cuisine. Aristocampo stands out amongst thes. A few steps from the charming square of Santa Maria in Trastevere, along the route of the ancient Roman street “Aurelia Nova”, it has been for about 20 years the point of reference for those who want to taste the authentic flavors of the Roman food.
Trastevere is one of the most popular neighborhoods for foreigners, so it is possible to find restaurants that are not really Roman, where cuisine is not the traditional one, ingredients and service are carelessly and prices are definitely high compared to the gastronomic offer.
Our restaurant is attentive to every detail in welcoming its guests.
Authentic tradition finds home in this typical Trastevere inn, demijohns hanging on the ceiling cover convivial spaces, and the classic red and white tablecloths give a touch of color.
The owner of the restaurant, Roberto, is lover of “eating well”, recognizes that the quality of ingredients is really important for a good dish. He purchases the meat from the trusted butcher in Campo De Fiori and the fish at the metropolitan market, where he always goes shopping for his family.
All the attentions of Roberto and his staff in this typical Trastevere restaurant are oriented towards respecting the recipes that have been handed down by generations of Romans.
The cacio and pepe, with the need of having a perfect cream of its main elements: pasta, pecorino, pepper and cooking water.
The real Amatrician, which includes tomatoes, Roman pecorino and cheek lard, or the coda alla vaccinara cooked according to the original recipe, in its richest and elaborated version, just like in the trattorias of a time, with the final addition of a dark chocolate sauce and pine nuts.
Here you can enjoy dishes of tradition as an authentic Roman, in a very welcoming setting and with a professional service.
