We had a dinner at this place. The service was good and fast. Artichokes were a bit greasy and salty to my taske. Pasta was simple and good, no wow factor.

Enjoyed traditional Roman food here. The ravioli and Amatriciana pasta was particularly good, as was the semi freddo for dessert. Unfortunately the service was poor - beyond slow!

I visited this restaurant as part of food tour of the Testaccio neighborhood. The restaurant accommodated my gluten allergy and made the most delicious GF (al dente!) pasta with cacio e pepi and amatriciana sauces. One of the best meals I had in Rome.

This place serves Classic Roman cuisine done right in a pleasant white-tablecloth setting. Excellent service. Came for lunch and got the home-made tonnarelli cacio e pepe, oxtail stew (both of which they are known for) with a side of pan-seared broccoletti in olive oil and...More

When we tried to find the place we thought it was a utopia. But after a long time walking we found the place. A nice neighborhood that was old cellars for wine and now full of restaurants with local Italians. The place is good, the...More

All food does not taste. Poor pasta because without sauce (every good restaurant had perfect sauce), poor ravioli (with tomato sauce - why? the worst combination), poor lamb (just bones, almost no meat at all), even poor baked potato. Every dish was poor. Do not...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

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
