This low-key but classy trattoria in Rome's trending Tastaccio neighborhood provides a terrific meal at affordable prices (proving you do better when you get a little out of Rome's center). The pastas were excellent (especially) the amatriciana; the meats were also extremely good (I particularly enjoyed the osso bucco. The tiramisu is criminally good

Everything was amazing! Antonio was the best waiter we ever had. His charme, his sensibility, his touch. He was awesome. I think that without that guy the restaurant will close. I can remember his blue eyes, when i was in front of the bathroom he opened the door kissing my hand. Truly awesome experience. I'm a 28yo Swedish model and... More

Executive Summary Pros - Unique decor (dining room is a cave) Cons - Inhospitable service , food was over salted Unfortunately I had a pretty poor lunch experience here, the waiter seemed to be in a bad mood, even before we arrived, as the next table was also commenting on the hostile service. Food on this occasion was over salted.... More

Last night was the most wonderful family dining experience we have had, not only in Rome, but probably ever. The view from the terrace was beautiful, the food perfect but the service from Antonia and Sara was incredible ! Words cannot express our gratitude for the way they treated us. Truly amazing. They made us feel like intimate family. It... More

We loved this restaurant. It is visited more so by local Romans than tourists and not a lot of english is spoken. However, the food was over the top good and our service was the best of our 18 day trip. Ask for Antonio when you visit! He was one of the highlights of our trip to Rome. We loved... More

Location: Testaccio The place: First, this place is really cool! It's built into the 'mountain' of discarded clay pots - basically the city's most historic landfill dating back to God knows how many years. You can actually see the layers of cracked pots that make up the mountain walls through windows that are strategically placed in the restaurant. The food:... More
