Bad night

We had quite a disappointment here after having high expectations reading about it in various places. It started with our reservation. We called at 14:00 to reserve a table for 20:00 but when we arrived they couldn't find our reservation. After a few minutes we were seated in the lower part of the... read more

I had heard that this restaurant was coming up in the world, but that wasn't our experience. The food was OK, but it just didn't feel like the staff in the kitchen or on service we're making much effort. Food was reasonable but I have had much better in Testaccio and elsewhere in Rome. I wouldn't go back as there... More

Lovely meal in the heart of Testaccio. The restaurant is carved out of Monte Testaccio and has "windows" in the back which show you the amphorae shards that make up the hill. Friendly service, very reasonable prices. The pasta cacio e pepe (very eggy and lots of black pepper) and tiramisu (puts all others to shame) were standouts of a... More

A cold Sunday evening with rain, we'd been working hard all week and really looking forward to some good Roman 'Cacio e Pepe' (cheese and pepper sauce) pasta. The staff were ok but not really friendly. We were told that there was no wine list but to go and look on the shelves, that was fine, but again it was... More

i literally cannot stop thinking about the cacio e pepe dish at this lovely out of the way restaurant. Don't be afraid to venture out of the centro storico: you will love this restaurant! And the wine selection is outstanding and the staff super helpful!

Had a great meal here. The wait staff was very nice and we enjoyed that they forced us to read the menu and pronounce the items in Italian instead of just pointing to the menu. It looks like they print a new menu daily with different specials so that was really neat. I had the carbonara and my fiancé had... More

This traditional Roman (derived from Roma...) restaurant is very recommandable. I was there with for a business dinner. Nice ambient, good wine, excellent food. Only minus: we tried two tables, both were a bit "shaky". Very friendly and helpful service.

Great antipasti, we had Puntarelle ( which is a typically Roman salad ) seasoned with oil, garlic, fat juicy anchovies and splash of lemon, a couple of Suppli and perfectly executed fried artichoke. The Cacio e Pepe Tonarelli were moist and creamy with just the right amount of Pepper. Their involtino was a bit of disappointment, the sauce was a... More

We came here as part of a food tour. We tried the amatriciana, carbonara and cacio e pepe. It was good. I think that it would have been better if they weren't large portions designed for sharing between 14 people and if we were there on our own or with friends. But, I can clearly see why this place gets... More

This seemed like a very authentic Roman restaurant, we ate outside which was lovely and the food was great. Delicious antipasto. Wine equally good, no wine list but instead went inside to see what was available and made selection.

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.
