Good roman food. No wine list! Great selection of wine from all of Italy but you must go and look at the bottles directly. Great location and easy to get to.

A pleasant place for alfresco dining. Service good, food very good and a great choice of wine from all over Italy. Not too expensive but completely let down by disgusting toilets which were a disgrace. There simply is no excuse for this lack of attention to an important aspect of any restaurant. Will probably not return as there is plenty... More

Friday night, extremely busy, locals mixed with tourists, the restaurant manager was very helpful as the reservation was for 6 people and we actually were 8. He offered immediately another table but it was in the basement hall a lot less appealing than the main one where you can see the roman broken pottery depot from glass windows. The stracciatella...

Went there last night, it was so good. Everything from the wine to the meal. The wait staff is very helpful. We didn't have a reservation and they fit us in. Here's the best tip ever: TRY THE HOUSE PASTA AND WINE!! Oh and the place is nice inside and peaceful outside. And try the burrata bruschetta....one of the best... More

We had our best meal of our Rome trip here. The menu is all in Italian but we had a delightful waitress called Sara who took the time to talk through and translate the whole menu for us and that too with a lovely smile. Our food was delicious and we would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Dont hesitate... More

My wife and I went to the restaurant early, looking forward to supposedly one of the best restaurant for pasta. We were first greeted by waitresses with horrible attitude, forcing us and another Indian family to go to the basement, claiming that the regular seating area is full. The area we sit was so bad that other patrons immediately turned... More

We love visiting this restaurant and is our first port of call on arriving in Rome. On this occasion we had antipasti of beans with sausage - delicious, and courgettes marinated in a subtle mix of mint, vinegar and garlic which we thought was amazing. For the main course we had a delicious beef stew with potatoes and rabbit 'alla... More

We visited despite having noted the Trip Advisor mentions of over salting. We did not experience this, but the restaurant left a lot to be desired. The menu is only in Italian, which I guess is fair enough, we were in Italy. A young male waiter was attentive and helpful in talking us through the menu, but his two young... More

11 of us visited here today for lunch and we kept things simple by ordering 3 different pasta dishes (one with red sauce; one with a white cream sauce; and a third with a white and Parmesan cream sauce) all were delicious. We ordered the house red wine and enjoyed it very much. The Testaccio neighborhood offers a quiet contrast... More

Staying in Testaccio

Neighborhood Profile
Testaccio
Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio, an ancient Roman port and former working class neighborhood 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.
