Antica Pesa Roma has been serving food to discerning diners for over 95 years. It takes its name from the customs post that used to be at the location back in the 600s. Antica Pesa Roma is, therefore, steeped in history and is one of the most well-known restaurants in the city of Rome. The dining experience is culinary as well as being an artistic extravaganza. This is because the walls of Antica Pesa Roma are decorated with artwork and frescoes from painters who have helped create one of the most unique dining rooms in Italy.<br /><br />

The Food

The menu at Antica Pesa Roma is a combination of classic Italian dishes, particularly those from Rome, as well as modern interpretations of the classics.

Last Word

Celebs and artists flock to one of Rome's most well-known restaurants in the heart of Trastevere.
