We booked in the afternoon and had dinner there... What a dinner! Veal nerves for starter, sage and butter spinach ravioli for primo, with oxtail in Roman tomato sauce for secondo. We finished with a typical panna cotta... and even some complimentary amaro. Excellent, and officially approved by my Roman boyfriend with high standards on Roman food! Moreover: friendly and...

The place is nice and comfortable, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the food s good. The dishes are true to the best Roman tradition, with a wise use of the fifth / fourth popular ingredients. The price was really too high, typical for a seafood dinner, especially because almost no one took the main course. The problem is... More

Funny little Trattoria on the Tiber heavily recommended by Roman carriage companions on the train from Venice. Not the plushest place in the world and the staff were slightly distracted by Roma playing in the Champions League, but we didn't have to wait long for anything. The meal was excellent with a pretty decent house wine. I was unfortunately too... More

This restaurant was recommended by our taxi driver because we were looking for a restaurant with fresh past and where the "locals" ate. We were not disappointed 😉 We had the house red, which went down very smoothly. The Antipasta had grilled eggplant and zucchini, chick peas, bruschetta,and burata cheese with dried cured meat....perfect! We ordered the freshly made ravioli... More

We found this restaurant as it was close to our hotel on our last night in Rome. It was the final meal of our trip and it did not disappoint! We did not have a reservation, but went early and were able to get a table outside (if we were returning we would definitely make a reservation as almost all... More

Arriving on time for a dinner reservation made on the Quandoo booking service, we were seated at a table down a flight of stairs in a large, unwelcoming room in the basement. We requested a table change to the main dining room upstairs, which was accommodated. Our meal was fine, typical Roman dishes -- cacio e pepe and pasta arrabiata.

We are staying in Testaccio and want to try the local restaurants. After reading TripAdvisor reviews, we walked by in the afternoon and the restaurant looked attractive, so we made a reservation. When we arrived, instead of being seated in the nice dining room, we were escorted to the basement down a steep staircase where we were seated in a... 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.
