Trastevere has many streets that weave in and out of the old section of Rome, but once you cross the bridge over to Trastevere the vibe is different. The working man's quarters has a lively street called Via Della Lungaretta and you can walk the length from the Ponte Cestio, that crosses over from the Isola Tiberina, to a short distance away from the Ponte Sisto, which brings you back close to Campo De' Fiori.
Shopping and eating are the main attractions on the street, but a little over on Viale Trastevere off the Piazza Mastai sits "La Piazzetta" Ristorante-Braceria-Pizzeria on Via Cardinale Merry del Val. The outside tables are plentiful, the inside tables as well, and the food is typical Italian with a lot of pizza choices. Simple but rustic and warm, the decor makes one want to sit and sip a little vino and chew on a pizza, while talking shop with the chef who works behind the glass in front of a wood fireplace. Prices are not as high as in Rome center and the talk is free.
Favorite Dish: Pizza! Pizza! Pizza! This is the dish of the day, month, year and at "La Piazzetta" there are plenty of choices with a pizza for anyones taste.
