It is easily recongized by the huge rack of meat by the front door and blue neon sign out front. One might think of it was a touristy place due to the English/Italian menu and all the glitter, but we found that we were the only English speaking people there.
It was an extremely cold night when we went and the inside seats very little, but we stayed on the patio anyways.
The service was super. The food even better.
We tried the Napolese pizza and the coda della vaccinara.
Prices were well within most traveler, but maybe not backpackers, range.
Favorite Dish: Coda della Vaccinara, oxtail
Hostaria del Moro, known to its expat regulars as 'Tony's,' is a lovely restaurant in one of the small cobblestone alleyways in Trastevere. Their specialty is seafood, but there are plenty of other dishes for those who aren't seafood lovers.
Favorite Dish: As an appetizer, I recommend the mixed bruschetta shared between two or more people. The lasagne is a good choice if you want a 'primo piatto,' and my favourite 'secondo piatto' is the risotto alla pescatora. They staff is very friendly; the owner Tony and the headwaiter Alex will take especially good care of you. They might even throw in a shot of limoncello on the house.
Closed on Mondays, but Tony also owns the place with the green checkered tablecloths across the street, and one of the two is always open.
