About

Café Trastevere is on Magnolia Avenue in downtown Orlando, just about a block from all the shopping and heavy traffic on Colonial Drive. Café Trastevere is a quiet oasis and one that evokes a wonderfully cozy, intimate environment. With a glass of wine in front of you and the smell of freshly cooked pasta rising up from the kitchen, this is a place to go when you want a dining atmosphere that's quiet, romantic and intimate.

Service was good. Nice vibe. Weird background music playlist through a pretty bad sounding speaker though.

Antipasto and salads were impressive, but both entrees were way too salty. It's a shame because I could tell it was a complex sauce, and nice presentation.

Wonderful Italian cuisine in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Service was great with the owner taking our order and spending a few minutes with us after we were done. This restaurant is a hidden gem. Small bar and indoor seating area with two great outdoor patios where you can also dine. We can't wait to go back again!

Drove by this place a few years back but never managed to get in until last Friday. Absolutely wonderful people and even better food (Veal Saltimboca highly recommended!) Best cappuccino I've had in America too--went great with tiramisu. Sit by the waterfall outside if available. Will definitely be back again.

Arrived with my party of 5 for confirmed reservation to find a sign on the door stating restaurant closed, will reopen 1/30. Had to scramble at the last minute to find another restaurant to take us before our concert. Should have been notified !

I used to go here and always loved. I tried this restaurant twice within a week last week and first time, they didn't even know I had resv and they only had 2 servers on a Saturday night and service was very very slow. Food is fantastic. Next I made resv for following Friday night and got there and stood at front with 10 other people for 15 min until the one gentleman working finally acknowledged everyone and said sorry some one didn't show up so if you want to wait you can but will be a while. Having resv clearly didn't matter anyway. We left. Its so sad because its a great atmosphere and food is good but they cant seem to keep reliable wait staff.

Had early reservation mid week - upon arrival, we were only ones dining. But by 6:30p inside dining filled. Although on busy street, weather permitting would recommend outside dining as nicely landscaped. Waitress very attentive, but feel there was slight language barrier. Food came out quickly - served warm bread with butter, oil/vinegar but no herbs while waiting for dinner. No Italian brand beer nor Chianti Classico by the glass. My husband had the seafood special and I had the sausage special. Pricey for the serving size dishes($22) and Iced tea $4. No happy hour. Quality of food acceptable, but as one diner said across the table to me, he actually preferred Magiano's lasagne to theirs. Tiramisu was excellent but chocolate cake seemed to be purchased from local grocer. As I have gift certificate, will go again and try something different and see if we can get out the door less than $85 for mid-week, everyday dining.

Service was very bad....they only had 2 people waiting tables for the entire restaurant....the owner and another server.

Food was okay, bread was cold, it took 45 minutes to get just water and bread.

They ran out of veal on a Saturday night, I was lucky I ordered mine when I did.

We would have left if we did not have a Groupon.

Would not recommend this restaurant.

This is usually a very quaint authentic Italian dining experience. I brought my friend here before the theater. There was a HUGE loud party of about 16 seated right next to us within 10 minutes of our arrival in what is usually a very cozy dining room. They were understaffed for this party so we had no dedicated wait staff and a very noisy crowded experience. Not the usual charming experience. I'd suggest that large parties like this be seated elsewhere rather than in the small cozy space with other diners. The food was, as always, great.

We ate at Cafe Trastevere prior to seeing Cirque Du Soleil's La Nouba in Orlando. We went here based upon feedback and reviews we read on OpenTable and the reviews were on the money. The food was authentic, the staff was great, and the restaurant was very quaint. I had the Gnocchi with their Bolognese sauce. They were cooked perfectly and the sauce was delicious. My date got the mushroom ravioli and she raved about them. We split a tasty tiramisu for desert and I enjoyed one of the best cappuccinos I have had in a long time. It was a great experience and if I am ever in Orlando, I would defiantly return.

This was our second visit to Café Trastevere. This restaurant has the same charm as many of the quaint places in one of our favorite sections of Rome, Italy. Reasonably priced and excellent food.

We were celebrating a birthday. All of the food was delicious and so was the wine. Had a table in the corner which was cozy & quiet so we could enjoy each others' conversation. Great place!
