CHECCO ER CARETTIERE HISTORY
The history of Checco Er Carettiere, restaurant at Trastevere from three generations.
Checco died in 1961,and his Son Filippo (named “Pippo”) succeded to him. He was a “Carettiere” (a wine-carrier) too. Thank to a growht of customers, Pippo took over the near-by tavern at Via Benedetta 10 and expanded the restaurant.
When Pippo died the restaurant was closed since 2005 when Checco and Pippo heirs restored the locals to brind a old-project of family to life: bring the roman kitchen at trastevere.
After three generations, with much love and respect, Checco’s grandchildren are still in the forefront, covering all roles in the management of the restaurant in Trastevere. Talking with Stefania, Susy, Laura and Mira, one cannot help but understand and feel all the love and competence and conviction in preserving the true flavors of a Rome that is disappearing.
