La Canonica restaurant is HistoryEmotionFoodTrastevere

It all began in 1675 when the Oratory was granted to the Archconfraternity of the Blessed Sacrament of S.Maria in Trastevere (which arose in 1564 "for the adoration of the Eucharist and the accompaniment of Viaticum") and took the name St. Mary of Clemency because a copy of the Byzantine icon (precisely named Our Lady of Clemency) located in the Altemps Chapel in S.Maria in Trastevere. In 1705 Pope Clement XI had the church renovated, as reported in an epigraph placed by the brethren inside the church. After a period of forced closure following 1870, the premises were restored and enlarged and again reopened for worship in 1888. However, after World War I, when the Archconfraternity of the Blessed Sacrament became extinct, the oratory fell into disuse and, deconsecrated, but it continued to cook not only for the Brethren but to delight the palates of Romans and others! The Rectory was one of the first taverns in Trastevere.
