IN THE HEART OF ROME
Puntarella is a restaurant that offers contemporary Italian and Roman cuisine.
Our dishes are prepared by choosing the quality of products with great care, using modern cooking techniques and are contaminated with ingredients and spices from all over the world.
The result is innovative and tasty dishes that maintain the roots of Italian and Roman taste.
Being modern for us means working on tradition even if it is more difficult and if it means going against the easy fads of the moment.
Defending Italy’s food and wine heritage under attack due to globalization and the massification of food.
Quality Italian food is expensive when the ingredients are quality and there are Italian Chefs in the kitchen that you pay appropriately.
If you are not interested in these differences, Puntarella is NOT the Restaurant for you.
If you want to eat fresh hand-pulled pasta or bread and breadsticks made with Senatore Cappelli wheat, you are welcome!
Plate after plate we want to bring foodies, Romans, Italians and foreigners alike, back to Trastevere.
Our quaint, world-famous neighborhood deserves quality cuisine and not just that offered on tourist menus.

A unique location between the alleyways and the art of Trastevere
The Puntarella Restaurant is in Piazza del Drago, between Via della Lungaretta and Via di Monte Fiore, a few steps from the renowned Santa Maria in Trastevere.
We are in Rome’s most authentic district, one of the most sought-after by tourists but also thoroughly appreciated by those who have chosen to stay here.
Characteristic squares, narrow, colourful alleyways, markets, small shops and craftsmen’s workshops – the neighbourhood is very lively, both during the day and in the evening, which is why we are always ready to welcome those who, between a walk and a cultural visit, decide to stop by for an enjoyable and delicious bite to eat.
Guests can choose to eat inside, in the main dining room, which has a capacity of 50 people, or in the exclusive tavern to enjoy a more private setting for business meetings or dinners with friends for up to 14 guests.
Or outside, on a splendid patio in the characteristic Trastevere square, which can be used both in summer and winter and can accommodate up to 40 people.
