if you are in Rome and want to rest as the Romans do and did, then search no more. This restaurant has it all: it's authentic add it gets, offers all the traditional and time honored dishes of the best Roman cuisine, has a warm, genuine atmosphere, is frequented mostly by locals. Service is friendly and prompt, the wine list... More

We really wanted to like this place since it's listed in our "bible" Osteria d'Italia. Perhaps we were overly optimistic? Very good antipasto and suppli to start followed by a merely good rigatoni with oxtail ragu. Hunter's style rabbit was excellent while the raved about involtino was just so-so. Rumor has it the vino della casa is very good but... More

I went there last Sunday, we were a party of nine. I had previously been there but was never really satisfied - once it seemed too expensive, another time the waiters seemed a bit rude. This time I was positively surprised: excellent food, excellent waiter, even though the place was quite packed. The cacio e pepe was a bit blobby... More

Wow, is the word that comes to mind. A little out of the way but well worth the journey. Had a little jet lag and were hungry so we made resos at 8:00. Only one there, packed when we left. Pasta course with pork cheek was amaizing as was my wife's ravioli. Wild boar main course just melted in your... More

Went based on a recommendation from the staff at the hotel. The recommendation was spot on. Amazing food and an extensive wine selection - best 18 euro bottle of merlot that I ever had. Also, attentive staff and wonderful atmosphere.

I am sorry to say I have to agree with Sara P. This was our last meal in Rome and after many trips to Italy and many, many, restaurant meals this was the worst. We ordered a simple meal of insalata verde, rigatoni carbonara and tonnarelli cacio e pepe. The salad had none of the traditional bitter greens, no rucola... More

We found this restaurant after looking online and seeing the great reviews. We decided to make a reservation. BAD IDEA.Upon walking up the door, we were happy to see so many stickers commemorating this restaurant. TripAdvisor, Backpacker, etc. Those stickers should have said TURN AROUND NOW. DO NO ENTER. Is it possible to give a rating that is worse than... More

A real taste of Rome cuisine. All dishes from appetisers to pasta dishes, and across the main courses either meat or fish are D.O.C. from Rome or neighbour area. Even the bread is D.O.C. If you're lucky and book in advance you can eat on the terrazza. Some surprising remnants of antic Rome can be found in the internal rooms.... More

Flavio Al Velavevodetto was recommended by a local friend that sold it to us as a place where we could eat some of the best Roman food, and we were not disappointed! This restaurant gets full marks. Having been to many other trattorias in the Testaccio neighborhood, this is definitely one the best. In Summer - we visited in September... More

We were looking for authentic Italian food and visited this place, because it is recommended in the "Lonely Planet" guide as a good and typical Roman trattoria. However, the food was mediocre at best. Contradictory to what the review in Lonely Planet suggests, I doubt that the pasta we got was freshly made. Even though the place was quite busy... More
