Trattoria degli Amici, Rome
Tel: 39 06 580 6033
Concierge.com's insider take:
This small, unpretentious trattoria has won the hearts of many Romans, and not just because it serves better food than most places in tourist-clogged Trastevere. The restaurant also offers jobs to mentally handicapped youth, who work both as waiters and in the kitchen. The menu features simple, consistently good dishes such as sea bass carpaccio, Tunisian-style couscous, chickpea soup, and fresh cassata and cannoli from Sicily.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 7:30 to 11 pm, September through July.
