The food here is really good. The restaurant was full of locals all enjoying themselves. We’ve eaten here two times and made a point of visiting again on our recent trip to Rome. Love it!!

The atmosphere was so welcoming and staff really hospitable. Entree, bread and biscuits served all free of charge. Pizza and pasta some of the best in Rome. If you have room for a desert the chocolate soufflé is something special

One of my favorite restaurants in Testaccio. Excellent service. The menu have a good selection of pizza, pasta, meat and fish. Also a lot of dishes off the menu. After the meal you need to try their tiramisu, one of the best in Rome!!

This restaurant is very large and the food is good but there are many Trattorie in Rome where you will find as good or even better food in a nicer surrounding.

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
