Okay, so we came here because we saw good reviews and at first this place seemed very nice. However, the wait stuff turned out to be rude. I ordered minestrone and punta di petto di vitello, however, I have only received the minestrone. When we...More

I apologise for your perception of rudeness; we try hard to put everyone at ease, but sometimes we fail. In this case I was told you came to the register all together and everyone with its personal bill, engage it for several minutes while under...More

We really enjoyed our lunch at Taverna Volpetti. I've always wanted to visit this place, so had a chance to savor a delicious Cacio & Pepe and a side of scarola here while admiring all the luscious meats, wines and cheeses that they display in...More

Check the chalk board for daily specials, ask for wine advice (the extensive wine offerings would take years to explore adequately, the staff can suggest a good pairing with the food). Very friendly service, if you show up before dinner begins you can order an...More

We started by shopping at their specialty grocery store next door. After the amazing service provided by Mateo and his team, they mentioned they had a restaurant- so obviously we had to go. It was Sunday so they were only open at lunch. The service...More

It was good, the menu read better than what was delivered however its worth visiting once. Careful food without the Italian robustness of flavour expected of Italian food. Smallish serves. Sliced bread in a paper bag wasn't cute.

We had a wonderful time in the deli, tasting fantastic hams. Mateo then escorted us to the restaurant for a beautiful meal and a few glasses of vino. A fantastic experience that showed the true hospitality of Rome!

Taverna Volpetti served one of our favourite meals during our 5-day stay in Rome. We greatly enjoyed our primi and secondi; the goat-cheese based dessert was maybe not exactly our taste, but definitely original. The waiting staff is very friendly and happy to explain and...More

This is an excellent location to try top notch Italian cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. We went with our 1 year old daughter and the staff loved smiling at her and saying sweet things in Italian. We received good service in both English and Italian....More

Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio,
an ancient Roman port and former working class
neighbourhood where the bass is set to high almost
every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche
(nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants
give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the
daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club
hit, the area is full of locally owned small
