Great authentic pasta with groups

My wife and I came with a large group. We had the carbonara and two other dishes I can't pronounce. The pasta was fresh and the sauces very robust. Buono.

It might not be haute cuisine, but if you want food your mamma would make if she were Italian (and the same portion sizes she would force upon you if she were Italian) then you can't go wrong with Velavevodetto! One pasta course is enough to fill you to bursting, but you can't stop yourself ordering a secondo or dessert,... More

First, its a bit out of the way, we took a cab away from out center city location. That being said, food was really good and authentic, not the same old far you find at very touristy restaurants. Great table wine. Great Meat. Zuchini flowers were in season and were yummy. Worth the trip.

First time here and nicely surprised. Here you can get all the classic and very Roman courses. Oxtail, Trippa etc. Busy restaurant and yet very friendly and service minded staff.

I can see why this place gets the hype. The pasta is cooked perfectly an probably one of the best carbonara's I've ever had. Unfortunately overshadowed by the fact that my husband pasta dish(pieta) came out an hour after mine. so we didn't get eat together but being on vacation and in Rome we choose not to be bothered by...

We arrived late in the afternoon on a Sunday all the tables were either busy or done, luckily they reset a table for us (another couple that arrived a few minutes after were the last to be seated for lunch). They were very nice to take us so late. The service and food was very good. The fried zucchini blossoms... More

When you go out on a food tour you expect great food. We got that but also learned how the place was built into a hill side composed of stacked terra city from Ancient amphora used by the Greeks and Romans to store and transport wine et al. A hill created from these were the basis of the hill that... More

We were searching online for a restaurant serving good authentic Italian fare away from the touristy areas. Flavio al Velavevodetto seemed a good match based on reviews, but we were disappointed. We had reservations for 7:30 (opening time) and arrived a little early, tired after a day of sightseeing and walking from Piramide metro station, but they would not let... More

There are some astonishing reviews on here by people who clearly have very little understanding of what Italian food actually is all about i.e. simple, beautiful, unpretentious dishes made from high quality seasonal ingredients with love and care. Of course its peasant food, they're the ones that eat the best because they're the ones closest to the raw materials. Roman... More

I love this place! The house pasta is amazing! The staff is good and friendly. The antipasto also is good....every pasta dish coming from the kitchen made my mouth water. You won't be disappointed.

Staying in Testaccio

Neighborhood Profile
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.
