Our History


We opened in May of 1993 with a goal of providing Santa Monica residents with various flavors and tastes from central Italy. Trastevere Santa Monica is 3,000 sq. ft. and comfortably seats 270 people.

We have a beautiful patio overlooking the Promenade, excellent to enjoy the weather and people watching.
We are conveniently located on the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Third Street, in a high foot-traffic pedestrian street (approximately 60,000 people a day).
Third Street is considered the most popular shopping location in Santa Monica and its surrounding areas. Only three blocks from the beach and the world famous Santa Monica Pier, Third Street Promenade has become one of the main tourist attractions in Southern California.
The variety of restaurants, pubs, shops and movie theaters located here makes Third Street not only a tourist destination, but also a place for our frequent local guests to enjoy tasty cocktails with delicious Italian meals.
