We traveled to Rome and hadn't completely planned where we were going to spend New Year's Eve. The night of the 31st we found ourselves without reservations. We phoned La Fata after reading amazing reviews, Gianluca answered. He told us the restaurant was fully booked, but after hearing our story he worked a miracle. He called us back after 5... More

I planned a surprise weekend in Rome for my partner's birthday and booked this following the reviews on Tripadvisor. We were both very happy with the evening - the staff were very welcoming and friendly, and the food was great. In fact it was the best carbonara we found during our whole trip! It's a little way out from the... More

The food is excellent: antipasti imaginative and exciting to taste, traditional pastas with creative twist, meat dishes extremely interesting. High quality food - my fassona was perfect. Deserts were a real treat. the only eye-brow raisers were the poor quality grappa, and over salted vegetables. Ambient was very congenial, wine list was good but a bit unwieldly. Prices very competitive.... More

This stylish restaurant is conveniently located around the corner from the Piramide metro station in the Testaccio neighborhood. The staff is very welcoming and we certainly appreciated the detailed personal presentation of the menu by the owner, Gianluca. For starters we choose the very tasty light risotto and ravioli with oxtail stew. The main courses of osso buco and stewed... 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.
