Check the chalk board for daily specials, ask for wine advice (the extensive wine offerings would take years to explore adequately, the staff can suggest a good pairing with the food). Very friendly service, if you show up before dinner begins you can order an...More

Rome has a common characteristic: you can eat well everywhere. The quality of the ingredients is what raises the standard of Italian cuisine. But Volpetti has goes one step further beyond the typical Roman cuisine, which gives it a very particular and highly recommended characteristic....More

Volpetti was one of the recommendations by the small hotel in the Testaccio neighborhood. Being turned down by other establishments for not having a reservation, I walked into a packed Volpetti—described as a “fast food” place on my list—and was greeted warmly. They had no...More

We started by shopping at their specialty grocery store next door. After the amazing service provided by Mateo and his team, they mentioned they had a restaurant- so obviously we had to go. It was Sunday so they were only open at lunch. The service...More

It was good, the menu read better than what was delivered however its worth visiting once. Careful food without the Italian robustness of flavour expected of Italian food. Smallish serves. Sliced bread in a paper bag wasn't cute.

We had a wonderful time in the deli, tasting fantastic hams. Mateo then escorted us to the restaurant for a beautiful meal and a few glasses of vino. A fantastic experience that showed the true hospitality of Rome!

Walked in without a reservation on a Friday night and the friendly staff found us the last table without a reserved sign on. We were to learn why this was a place locals reserved. We selected the charcuterie plate for two to be followed by...More

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
