In Testaccio, a restaurant with a special name: Velavevodetto which if you spell out in proper Italian becomes: Ve l'avevo detto, i.e. I told you so! No doubt about the self confidence that this name oozes and rightly so. I started with two startersincluding the carcioffo alla giudia which was soft from the inside and had crispy leaves just like... More

This was one of the best meals we have ever had in Rome. We came with a few local friends who recommended the place after we asked for traditional Roman food. This place was the real deal! Everything was delicious, wine flowed all night and we closed down the restaurant at midnight. Try the tiramisu... Out of this world!

We had read that this was THE place to come for a proper taste of Rome - simple food done very well and as organic or bio-dynamic as possible. It was fabulous, but be warned, the portion size is large. The restaurant will do half portions or happily let you share. It's a large restaurant but split into several large... More

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
