In an attempt to ‘give Trastevere back to the Romans’, Glass Hostaria is one of the restaurants in Rome where you can expect dishes that are modern and fresh interpretations of Italian cuisine. But some ‘variations’ can be a little unexpected. Portions are fairly small and there are no side dishes, so don’t come here if you’re yearning for a steaming bowl of pasta and a slab of meat. However, for an invigorating gourmet experience, especially in the summer months when more delicate flavours are what you want, this is a stylish choice. The interior design follows the template for ‘modern’ restaurants, with glass floors and high-tech lighting. And for a restaurant this epicurean, the prices really are remarkably economical. Service is young, quick and friendly, and the atmosphere is relaxed.
