THE STORY OF CHECCO ER CARETTIERE
The story of three generations of Checco Er Carettiere restaurant in Trastevere.
In 1961, Checco passed away, and his son, Filippo, affectionally called “Pippo,” who was also a “Carettiere” (wine-carrier) took over the tavern. As business increased, Pippo expanded it into a larger restaurant, purchasing another tavern nearby at Via Benedetta 10 in 1968. He worked constantly until his death in 1998. Immediately after, the granddaughters, who had already been working there, fervently continued the family project of preparing high quality, traditionally-prepared Roman food.
After three generations, Checco’s grandchildren have still been in the forefront, managing the restaurant with passion and competence. Mira, Susy, Laura and Stefania successfully prepare and continue serving the true and authentic flavors of a Roman traditions, that risk to quietly disappear.
