THE tastiest tiramisu!!

Good meal; got charged 3 euros for bread though (too much) and there was no balsamic vinegar to dip it in. The meals were HUGE portions! Liver pasta was tasty. The ricotta cheese ravioli was very rich! Great value for money. It was a little on the outskirts though.however if you're a tiramisu fan... read more

Wow, what a treat to eat at Ristorante Flavio al Velavedetto! We were lucky enough to be taken to this gem of a restaurant by our dear Italian friends. We ate on the terrace and enjoyed the unique ambiance of this great restaurant. The food is wonderful and not typically what you find on the menu of most restaurants. It... More

We stopped in here for a pre-dinner drink and ended up staying for a few. Friendly, professional service and great snacks, good wine selection and of course, good spritzes.

We came here after reading an online recommendation and while the food is delicious I wouldn't necessarily say it's worth the trip out of town. I had the caponata to start and my fiancé had the rice balls, both of which were delicious. The veal and ossobuco mains were absolutely huge and extremely tasty. The tiramisu was the best I've...

We were so delighted to see such a great selection of offals on the menu. And it did not disappoint- we enjoyed tripe in tomato sauce and rigatoni with veal intestine. Started with the burrata with anchovies, followed by the pasta, tripe and roast baby pork- definitely the star dish of the night- crispy and tender. Unfortunately, we could not... More

Having read recommendations , we decided to have our last meal in Rome at this Trattoria - such a disappointment. The food was average /indifferent , the ambience poor - and moreover it was very difficult to find - certainly not worth the effort .

If you are looking for italian food please stop here. Flavio is one of the best restaurant in his category talking about italian pasta and in particular I suggest You to taste "Cacio e Pepe" (pasta cheese and pepper) and "Polpette di Manzo" (beef meatballs) but, generally speaking, be guided by Flavio and his team for a wonderful experience before...

We love the Testaccio neighborhood for its realness and we were directed to this place by a local. The ambience is just okay although if you get a room in the back you'll see a cool section of Monte Testaccio revealed through glass. I find that fascinating. The food really is outstanding and they have a great wine selection. The... More

A Big place in a quiet neighborhood with outside eating, a room that's roof opens and then several back rooms. The caponata was the best I've ever had and the pasta was nearly as good but the service was forever. We usually dine for 2 hrs. This was 3. Maybe it was us or maybe there were too many patrons...

We discovered this restaurant through a food tour that we booked. We were made to sample 3 pasta dishes--all were delicious but the best one was carbonara. In all my life, it was the best tasting carbonara i've had! Yum!

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.
