Great service and friendly management. Excellent wines and wide selection of favorite roman dishes and some surprises you dont find at home. Very reasonable pricing. Cool area if you keep an open mind.

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
