It is always a pleasure to enjoy a good Sunday meal at Taverna Trastevere. Tables were a bit too tight, but we went at a relatively relaxed time so we enjoyed our time there.

Have been here many times and the food is always amazing. Even though they had to deal with everyone outside due to the pandemic, food was still as good and great service!

100% best carbonara I have had in my life! Super tasty and I’ll definitely be going back for more. Our starter was lovely too, very fresh, you can tell they use top quality ingredients.
The staff were extremely accommodating to seat us further away from other people as I was a bit nervous post lockdown. Great service from all staff. Highly recommended, thank you Taverna Trastevere :)

Amazing as always! booked for our first meal back out of lockdown and was lucky enough to get a table for the upcoming weekend too. The best, most authentic Italian in SW London by a country mile!

First time to this restaurant and we were impressed by the quality of the food and the selection on the menu. The drinks were expensive (too expensive) but the service was excellent. Naturally, with the 10pm curfew things were a bit rushed but other than that, an excellent evening.

We had a lovely Saturday evening dinner here. The food was excellent (I particularly enjoyed the aubergine melanzane and the pork cheek was tonnarelli). Wine was also great (coravin wine was lovely). The restaurant was busy in a good way and had atmosphere but not overly noisy. Staff were lovely and welcoming. We will be back!

Immediately on arrival told to put on a mask not “good evening” or “hello how are you?”

Arancini - good.

Veal - Cold.

Side orders - wrong.

Told to leave wanting the table back.

Won’t return.

Very disappointing dining experience. It was not Covid secure, no social distancing at all. I saw that the waiters moved the tables next to us while the customers were having their meals, in order to fit in more tables. There was 60cm (max. ) between our table and the table next to us. My food was fine but the crust of my friend's pizza was burnt.

First trip to Taverna after lockdown. It was a pleasant surprise to see new additions to the menu, mainly fish courses. We tried a few of them and they were worth every penny. Kind and attentive staff, covid measures in place. Spot on!

Wonderful food, my girlfriend and I are both Italian by blood and it was described by her as ‘the best Italian I’ve ever had’.

Staff friendly and knowledgable and great ambience. Would recommend, as a Clapham local lovely to know there is such great quality on my doorstep without having to go into central.

Terrible service provided at this restaurant. We dined here for the Eat Out to Help Out Scheme. We were placed at the back of the restaurant near the pizza kitchen and had to continually request for a waiter to serve us drinks, black pepper and Parmesan. The food came out separately with a long gap in between. When we finally received the bill (after walking to find a waiter to request it) we paid for it and then found out we were only charged the -£10 discount for two people, rather than the four that had eaten.

Waitress was rude, abrupt and unhelpful when we did request for service, slamming drinks and food onto the table. We will not be returning to eat here any time soon.

I have eaten their many times, but this visit was not as expected. Served really quickly, almost felt pressured to order promptly. The food was ok but but quality not as good as before. Had to ask for sides three times before it arrived.
Asked the the bill several times, in total it took twenty minutes to arrive, the excuse was the restaurant was busy, I think an apology would have sufficed.

Everything was a but too oily for our liking (octopus salad and grilled prawns with squid)
Rice and mozzarella balls has a strange aftertaste and potatoes in lobster salad tasted like petrol.
Staff was very nice and offered a free dessert but we thought it would be more to take off the bill that dish.
Overall food wasn’t great, maybe should have gone for pasta.

We always enjoy eating at Taverna Trastevere but, this time, there were a couple of things that let us down. First, we were quite surprised to see no one measuring temperature to customers dining in and only one waiter wearing masks/gloves while serving food. One of the store managers was also randomly grabbing pieces of bread from the basket and eating them in front of the customer. Second, the restaurant seemed pretty packed with tables not being adequately distanced.
Food-wise, we recently had a superb lunch at Taverna Trastevere but, this time, the Carbonara was not as good as it normally is. The guanciale lardons were too dry and the egg "cream" was very liquid. The supplì weren't fried as good as they normally are. The coffe martini, howevere, was one of the best drink I had in a long time.

Good menu with good selection. Octopus starter was good. Pizza is ok but had better. Disappointed with the spaghetti a la vongole, there was not a lot of vongole and the sauce is a bit sticky. Not the same as others I tasted. However the service was good.

We were welcomed by friendly staff and the restaurant had few bookings in order to cater to COVID restrictions. Menus were online and staff wore protective visors, which made the experience comfortable in knowing that safe hygiene practices were in place. The food was excellent and it was overall a great experience. I would recommend and return.
