A must go in Trastevere

Amazing food and service, one of the best places to go for classic Roman cuisine. The space was quite small and fully booked so consider your booking in advance.

We ate well, good food, service.... That charged us 9euro for the bread!!! I guess the locals don t pay it that much.... Very disapointing, i left 10 euros as tip anyway, we were 6 eating, a shame.

If you count on others' suggestion to try excellent food and warm service do not miss Lo Scopettaro. Visited particularly by locals. Eccellente!

Very nice place for a traditional dinner. Food was amazing: traditional local dishes, very good quality of ingredients. The place is quite small therefore not crowded. the service was close to be perfect and the host was helpful and welcoming.

This restaurant was chosen due to one other being fully booked on a Sunday by local italians. It was my birthday and although I have a wonderful lunch, I wanted something lighter. I chose the chicken and peppers with a mixed salad. It was awful - the chicken was dry and overcooked added to which I got one small leg... More

We went to Lo Scopettaro on Feb 25 with a group of nine. The owner offered a selection of starters for the group to share ... This led to him offering pasta selections and then finally a selection of meats. All served to share. It was all outstanding. The pasta carbonara and rigatoni were delicious. The veal and meatballs also... More

We took a day and a half to recover from the meal - far, far too salty (the pasta) and when I asked for a mixed salad I was given a bowl of chopped lettuce and a sliced tomato - no dressing. Very unimaginative and bland. Will not return.

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.
