i literally cannot stop thinking about the cacio e pepe dish at this lovely out of the way restaurant. Don't be afraid to venture out of the centro storico: you will love this restaurant! And the wine selection is outstanding and the staff super helpful!

Had a great meal here. The wait staff was very nice and we enjoyed that they forced us to read the menu and pronounce the items in Italian instead of just pointing to the menu. It looks like they print a new menu daily with different specials so that was really neat. I had the carbonara and my fiancé had... More

This traditional Roman (derived from Roma...) restaurant is very recommandable. I was there with for a business dinner. Nice ambient, good wine, excellent food. Only minus: we tried two tables, both were a bit "shaky". Very friendly and helpful service.

Great antipasti, we had Puntarelle ( which is a typically Roman salad ) seasoned with oil, garlic, fat juicy anchovies and splash of lemon, a couple of Suppli and perfectly executed fried artichoke. The Cacio e Pepe Tonarelli were moist and creamy with just the right amount of Pepper. Their involtino was a bit of disappointment, the sauce was a... More

We came here as part of a food tour. We tried the amatriciana, carbonara and cacio e pepe. It was good. I think that it would have been better if they weren't large portions designed for sharing between 14 people and if we were there on our own or with friends. But, I can clearly see why this place gets... More

This seemed like a very authentic Roman restaurant, we ate outside which was lovely and the food was great. Delicious antipasto. Wine equally good, no wine list but instead went inside to see what was available and made selection.

I love Flávio al Velavevodetto because it serves excellent Roman comfort food in a simple setting with efficient service. We had a fantastic family lunch including their signature dishes, fried lamb chops, puntarella salad and burrata crostini. The tiramisu was absolutely to die for.

In Testaccio, a restaurant with a special name: Velavevodetto which if you spell out in proper Italian becomes: Ve l'avevo detto, i.e. I told you so! No doubt about the self confidence that this name oozes and rightly so. I started with two startersincluding the carcioffo alla giudia which was soft from the inside and had crispy leaves just like... More

This was one of the best meals we have ever had in Rome. We came with a few local friends who recommended the place after we asked for traditional Roman food. This place was the real deal! Everything was delicious, wine flowed all night and we closed down the restaurant at midnight. Try the tiramisu... Out of this world!
