Having done weeks of research on Rome this restaurant kept being mentioned by various sources including Katie Parla's site. So I was looking forward to it. Arriving by taxi we certainly felt we were in a local restaurant off the usual touristy beaten track. We were led to our outdoor table on the upper veranda and sat down full of... More

We ate here on a Monday evening early September. The place was full, even on a Monday, so be sure to make an advance reservation. The weather was not great so we sat inside. The unique backdrop of the clay pot mountain provided character to the cellar-like setting. For wine, you go and choose your own from the cellar with... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Flavio al Velevodetto on a Saturday night in August. We chose the restaurant after reading favorable reviews in two travel magazines. The restaurant was a €15cab ride from our hotel and a little tricky to find, set off the main drag in the Testaccio neighborhood. We opted for a seat in the courtyard, which... More

I found this place using a foodie app, and I'm glad I did. Of all the places I found using google before I went to Rome, this was by far the best. The setting is a little out of the main area, a 5 minute cab ride and that's a good thing. On most nights is 75% locals who know... More

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

I choose this restaurant between those of the Lonely Planet guide, actually the place is nice and the food is good, pity that not having the Roman accent, our portions were half of those of the other tables next (all Romans) who had ordered the same our own pasta dishes. only bad luck for us or they will have the...

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
