This is one of our favorite places to eat when in Rome. Originally turned on to Agustarello by the folks we were staying with, we go back for the traditional hearty and unpretentious Roman "working man's" dishes called cucina povera or "cusine of the poor", the no-frills neighborhood atmosphere and absence of tourist-type food. If you don't speak Italian or... More

If you want to sample the real Roman dishes you should head to Testaccio and get to Agustarello. It's a very simple modest place as are the dishes but we loved everything about it and the staff is really helpful and explains the dishes thoroughly although only in Italian just like the menu. So having good speaking skills in Italian... More

We reserved here on the last evening of our trip at 21.00 and when we arrived the restaurant was closed!! It was a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was not even meant to be closed. We thought that maybe we didn't have the right enter since to the restaurant so we called and heard the phone through the window and... More

The food here can be perfect, but it has many roadblocks for inexperienced tourists. Better to have good Italian skills, and don't just come here to share a salad and expect to get good service. This is a place for serious eating. This is a good place to try the "other" bits of the animal. The chef really knows how... More

Simply a perfect Roma's trattoria. Nice atmosphere, good location and tasty food. From starters like carciofi alla Romana and puntarelle, Cacio e Pepe, coda alla vaccinara all was delicious.

A busy Roman treat, Agustarello's quality belies it's slightly dodgy decor. The cavatelli with chicory and pecorino is an absolute must have, while the rest of the food was terrific too. The waiting staff are fun and brilliant, and there's a real sense of authenticity about the place.

A Roman friend recommended this restaurant as excellent at preparing typical Roman dishes. While the menu included well known Roman plates the quality of the food left much to be desired. I had cacio pepe and tried the amatriciana. Both plates with insipid and the amatriciana actually had the watery sauce poured on top of the pasta. For a second... More

Small restaurant with just a single waiter, a cook, and a dishwasher on the night we went. The waiter was helpful even though obviously busy. This is not really a tourist place, and the menu is not in English, so we had some questions that he patiently answered. Our food was simple but excellent (pastas followed by Abacchio al forno...

Not the greatest looking restaurant, but the food is very good. The pajata (milk-fed lambs' intestines) and the pork cheeks were excellent, as was the oxtail. The cacio & pepe was also well done. Bruschetta was served the traditional way without tomatoes. No complaints about the food. Service was perhaps a bit brusque. Good bottle of Sagrantino di Montefalco to... More
