Me and my family went to Lo Scopettaro for lunch and had a good experience. All the dishes were tasty and well-made, from pastas to the sliced meat options. Capresina was also good and the eggplant parmegiana as well, but this one had maybe too...More

I went there with two friends. We got amatriciana and meat rolls with some vegetable. All the dishes are very tasty and made with fresh ingredients. Waiters are nice and polite. I highly recommend to eat here!

The restaurant looks good, but the food just wasn't up to scratch. Being beside a busy main road also doesn't help things.

This place is excellent for traditional Roman classics--heart, lung, trippa, etc. It's also a wonderful place to get Cacio e Pepe and other fresh, Roman pasta dishes. Authentic Roman cuisine only here. We were the only non-Italians in the place each time we were there....More

Very tasty food, well prepared. The menu was a lot of pages full of choices, making the decision rather difficult... The place was full of Italians which is definitely a sign of good quality.

Small and cosy trattoria only seating about 25 people. Well worth the trip to Testaccio. Best parmigiana in a long time, cacio e pepe and then veal and sausage. Good food and good value to.

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
