Nice restaurant

Set in an old stables or something of that sort and on a quiet road, this restaurant turned out to be very good indeed. Their Roman Oxtail stew was amazing. Waiters were nice and friendly.

This was a fantastic start to our 14 day holiday in Rome! The cacio e pepe was indeed the best part of our meal, I'm still dreaming of it one week later. The waitress guided us nicely through the menu suggesting the perfect amount of food. Local wine and beer list were a perfect match to an already perfect meal.... More

The location is just great: inside old caves in the winter while you can sit on a nice terrace in the summer. The canteen offers wide range of wines. Food is great (the typical carbonara/amatriciana/gricia or coda alla vaccinara) everything is cooked with the same special attention a grandmother would put in preparing your meal. I definetely reccomand it.

I've eaten in this place so many times I think I could recite the menu by heart... From their incredible appetizers to the main dishes to their tiramisu (one of the best I've had in Rome, aside from my own!!), this place is amazing. Flavio really takes care of his clients and you can tell! Their wine list is amazing,... More

We had a lovely lunch here in August 2015 - very traditional and well prepared Roman fare in a really cool atmosphere. Velavedetto is carved into the side of Monte Testaccio, a 2,000 year old mountain of broken terra cotta amphorae. The inside of the mound is incredibly cold, so the restaurant was naturally air conditioned! It was very fun... More

Read about this trattoria on Lonely Planet, the Guardian City Guide for Rome, and various food blogs so I knew the food would be great. And it was-- caccio e pepe pasta was divine--- I never thought a sauce made of simple cheese and pepper could be so magical. Had the oxtail as my main-- which was okay but not... More

This restaurant is built in the side of a mountain of old olive oil and wine pots which provides the perfect storage conditions for wine. The restaurant was very popular between locals and tourists. The food was not the best that I've had in Rome but was very good. We dined on Spaghetti with olive oil and peperocini and Rigatoni... More

Having read reviews about this restaurant across multiple platforms we thought we would give it a try to hunt down a well priced traditional italian meal - and we succeeded! We arrived around 8pm/bit after and to be honest there was only one table, however come about 845pm the place started filling up and the ambience picked up, being filled... More

As we arrived at Piramide metro station and stepped outside, it appeared the area wasn't as nice as others we had seen, particularly for example the 3 burnt vespas left in a heap outside the station... Anyway, that aside we walked to find the restaurant, which if you're following directions isn't particularly difficult, although the restaurant is certainly 'off the... More

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.
