Recommended to us by a friend living here. Off the beaten track and main sites but as a result it retains it's genuine italian food and atmosphere.

I highly recommend, especially if you're looking for a getaway from the tourist crowds and overrated restaurants near the main attractions in the city center.

Traditional family restaurant with great food! Local people suggested that we went there and they were absolutely right. The food was home made and delicious and the atmosphere very warm. Unlikely to find find tourists at this part of the city. Highly recommend it.

A good friend who lived 20 years in Rome recommended this restaurant to me. It was delicious! I had a starter of mussels in a white wine sauce with a hint of spice, then the lamb which was mouth-watering. So tender and no fat at all. Hugh portions. The place is a typical trattoria with great atmosphere. The service was... More

The service staff are on their toes, serving and replenishing fast and furious, good wine, great Roman style food favourites and heartwarming style... I love this place. It is a simple looking place, but the food is very well prepared and presented. The... More

Our last night in Rome , we picked this place best on what I read on Trip Advisopr and a few other blogs. The home style cooking was fantastic. The service great. The bibs are a must ask. As for food the rabbit, lamb, pork all delicous.

Full of character - okay, it's not like you are going out for a fine dining experience but if you eat outside it's kinda romantic and cool. Inside the lights are very brights and it looks old and tired. The food was very good; authentic and you feel you are eating where the people who actually live here eat and... More

We had lunch here yesterday and food was OK, although the waiter was on the gruff side, not really very helpful. Tonight we went for dinner (a Sunday) around 7:05 pm. Tables were set, doors were open, and lights were on, so we sat down at an outside table. The gruff waiter from the previous day studiously ignored us, then... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Testaccio
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 businesses and has one of the city's larger produce markets.
