A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

Si può andare oltre la classica offerta gastronomica di basso livello che spesso caratterizza Trastevere? Si, se ci si imbatte in luoghi come Hostaria Luce, bel locale situato in via della Luce, ed arredato in stile Shabby Chic. Arredamento curato in ogni dettaglio, tonalità chiare e fresche, elementi semplici ma di gusto che rendono gli spazi estremamente accoglienti. In più il valore aggiunto di uno spazio esterno, quello del giardino, che nella bella stagione consente di mangiare all’aperto.

Una filosofia culinaria che propone i sapori mediterranei lavorando e valorizzando materie prime di qualità. La volontà di portare in tavola piatti freschi, gustosi e creativi, dando vita a proposte come la “Parmigiana di melanzane”, i “Gamberi baciati con cuore di provolina affumicata”, i “Paccheri con spada melanzane, datterini e menta”, il “Trancio di baccalá in guazzetto mediterraneo” ed il “Semifreddo di fichi”.

    (Local here) I highly recommend this restaurant. We went on a Wednesday night, so the location wasn't as full as it might be on a weekend. The staff is helpful and pleasant, the interior is the right mix of elegance and local feeling, and the food is superb. We had a ravioli and a paccheri and two desserts. Overall quality wonderful, perfectly cooked, and the price is more than reasonable. Do check it out!!

    Party of 11. Waiter told us we could only order up to 4 types of pasta dishes unless we were willing to wait for a long time. Made it sound like it was an inconvenience to cook for a big group despite accepting our reservation. Food was ok. Factoring in service and price, I was underwhelmed. This was our fifth Rome restaurant this week. We've received better food and great friendly service elsewhere but Hostaria Luce.

    Despite not having any vegan alternatives shown on the menu, if you ask, Hostaria Luce will provide you with one. I was there yesterday and the Cook came up to me and asked me what kind of meal I would like, listing briefly what was in stock. 15 minutes later I could enjoy a very nice meal.

    Excellent service from the start. We got there earlier and was told to relax until they opened. Great meal, especially the ricotta stuffed zucchini, aubergine cake and beef filet.

    Nice location - 5 mns walking far from the busiest area of Trastevere - for a very good food experience, host and staff were very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Prices are a bit over the average, but quality of plates is much more higher than elsewhere.

About the restaurant

Il ristorante Hostaria Luce, tra le bellezze e la storia che si respira a Trastevere, offre una cucina di stampo mediterraneo con una particolare attenzione nella scelta delle materie prime, per portare un tocco di freschezza e creatività in una delle culture gastronomiche più note al mondo. Qui il cliente può degustare anche piatti vegetariani e della tradizione romana.

PROPOSTE - Tra le proposte deliziosi strozzapreti con crema di carciofi e filangè croccante, corolla di pasta all’uovo ripiena di filetti di orata al profumo di zenzero, il sautè appassionato di rape rosse e bianche con il galante porcino. e ogni giorno il miglior pescato.

SHABBY CHIC - Il locale con un piacevolissimo stile "shabby chic", si presenta luminoso e raffinato, con un arredamento molto curato nei dettagli , dove i toni sono prevalentemente chiari grazie alla presenza di molto legno bianco. Nella bella stagione un giardino esterno renderà ancora più deliziosa una pausa pranzo all'aperto, o una romantica cena d’estate. Hostaria Luce è stato il primo ristorante in città ad impatto zero e che utilizza energia elettrica rinnovabile ed eco-sostenibile.
