After being recommended by a local, we made a reservation..given only the choice of 7:00 or 10:00, I think the time reserved for American tourists? We arrived at 7:00 to an empty restaurant with the employees lounging on cars in the front of the restaurant smoking. They barely acknowledged us and left us alone with the menus without any word...

What a great experience! Very much a local restaurant and a little out of the way BUT the nice thing is that it was not at all touristy. Service was a bit rushed but with good intensions, the quality of food overlooked this attribute. Have the Cacio e pepe pasta and tiramisu "delicioso"!!!!!!!!

Testaccio is a region in Rome apparently off the beaten path yet reachable by metro. This restaurant had various nice options for a reasonable price. We had the roasted lamb with potatoes and it was delicious. Service was very attentive. We recommend to make reservations.

The ranking of this restaurant is absolutely absurd...Da Felice a Testaccio without a doubt deserves a much higher rating! After travelling through Italy for 8 days, this was by far my favourite meal (recommend the Ox Tail for 16 euro). Service, presentation, price, quality and general atmosphere of the restaurant was fantastic. If you are unsure what to order, go... More

Recommended by our Hotel, we hopped out of out taxi, in the wet, and were pleasantly greeted by a warm smile. We weren't locals but we were treated like we were. A large Family gathering adjacent to our table made it feel like we right in the heart of Rome. The best bit was the pasta dance the waiters do... More

You can't go there without a booking. Modern and cozy "Trattoria Romanesca". Excellent food. Friendly and expert service. start with a "cacio e pepe" then let's the waiter choose for you the fabolous second course of the day. Michelin guide suggested me this place. I have to admit that is one of the place to be in Roma.

This was the best meal I had in Rome, possibly ever. I had the Cacio e Pepe which is their signature Roman dish. It was unbelievable!!! I am not a huge pasta person, but I could eat this meal every day. I had the Lamb as well which was fantastic, but the pasta dish was out of this world. The... More

Definitely try their cacio e pepe, the way the waiter mixes it up for you table side is a bit gimmicky, but I thought it was a lot of fun and it tasted fabulous, definitely the best cacio e pepe I tried in Rome. All their other dishes were delicious as well. It's very obvious that the restaurant is a... More

To be honest, I am surprised by the disparity in the reviews here, but perhaps my ability to speak some Italian helped with addressing the wait staff, who were perfectly courteous to me as a middle-aged, solo traveler. I called and had to wait eight nights to get a reservation before 10 pm, so book early! Since I was in... More
