Café Trastevere’s co-owner Santos isn’t content to just manage books. He roams the floor as the host and sommelier, sharing his passion for wine and the fantastic food of co-owner and chef Philippe Meiffret. The duo curates a menu of Northern and Southern Italian eats, from hand-formed gnocchi to thinly pounded veal prepared both saltimbocca- and scallopini-style. Santos complements the dishes with his extensive list of French, Italian, and Californian wines, from which he readily recommends glasses and bottles to pair with certain dishes.
The pair also managed to capture the charm of Italy in their venue. The building boasts the trellises and slightly peaked roofs of an Italian villa, nestled in amongst lush Floridian greenery. A shady patio surrounded by vine coated trellises provides a pleasant place for a sunny meal or a lecture on the importance of wearing sunscreen.

“The food is GREAT go hungry. It is small so make a RSVP is a good idea. They do need to work on the AC as it gets a little warm but the food makes up for that. The bread is great along with their red sauce. We've had several different dishes and they have all been good.”
