Few restaurants have come more highly recommended than Da Felice in Testaccio. None have been less deserving of the enthusiasm. A smart and bustling diner in the trendy dining district of Testaccio, the restaurant filled up rapidly after we arrived at 19.30 and by the time we left people were being turned away and reservations were being scrutinised carefully.

Felice A Testaccio has been in the same location since 1936, endured WWII and has been upgraded, but has the charm of the original restaurant. It is reservations only, but it is worth a phone call to make a reservation (PH: +39.06.5746800. All of the food is from local producers and has a wait staff that is better than I... More

Always difficult to reserve a table, always busy and too quick service. Food & wine all in best order. Parking a real problem, but the added walk will increase the appetite.

Testaccio as such is a real discovery and Felice is a place that delivered on the prmise of its name. Dropped in for a lunch and i was kucky to have a space (better to make reservation). The suggestions by the waiter were excellent and the atmosphere straightforward and nice. A discovery for me

We made a reservation for this restaurant as we were told it is always busy. When we arrived the restaurant was indeed very busy and the staff seemed under pressure. We had to wait some time before our order was taken by a waiter who was only interested in selling additonal items which we did not require. The food served... More

Felice is a very well-known restaurant, both by locals and visitors, so don't expect to just waltz in there without a reservation. The restaurant has a good list of Roman classics that are always served but it is the specials of the day - about a dozen different dishes for each day the restaurant is open - that allow you...

Traditional place in the Testaccio area, famous for its Roman cuisine (carbonara, pajata, coda alla vaccinara). Restaurant is nice and clean, rather crowded, waiters are kind and helpful. The cacio e pepe (cheese and pepper) pasta is quite good even if a little too saucy. Wide selection of wines and desserts. Only thing, prices are relatively high for very simple... More
