Ten of us went to Flavio's last week and had an amazing dinner. We were a mixed group of Irish, Italian and Argentinian. The food was superb and the portions generous. The lovely girl who served us was very attentive. We sat on the little terrace and the atmosphere was just perfect. Thank you!

Called ahead to reserve a table at 7:30pm--told n problem. Showed up--no reservation and given an outside tourist table. Menu was marginal at best, service was awful, the attitude of the host was as if we were imposing on his night. Picking wines from a bookshelf vs a list would have been a great experience had someone assisted and was... More

Book a table and arrive early, say 7:30pm and watch the droves of people come in. The food was seriously awesome, so flavoursome and service good with a nice down to earth atmosphere.

If it wasn't for the delicious looking carbonara at the table next to me I would have walked out after waiting 20min to be acknowledged let alone served. But I stayed, waited a rather long time and the carbonara was worth it. Not sure I'm willing to endure such bad service a second time though.

This place MUST have changed hands. We'd read variable reviews and blogs beforehand but decided to book as many were positive. When we arrived there were 6 staff standing at the entrance and each one ignored us. Eventually one spoke to us and told us to go in and choose our own table. The real disappointment was the food. We... More

We decided to visit this restaurant during our visit on Rome because of the reviews on trip advisor and it was close to where we were staying, it did not disappoint. The food was fantastic and reasonably priced. We had a pasta dish each then shared a second/meat dish and desert. This was more than enough food between us. The... More

I had read so many interesting reviews about this establishment, I was happy to attend here on the day preceding my departure. I was lucky enough to get a table inside (although I would have preferred outside, i was at the last minute). We were served rapidly. My wife asked for Osso Bucco. She had ordered one the day before... More

Located in Testaccio which in itself has an interesting history. The restaurant is nestled in a hill that houses a number of bars and clubs hence run down looking. Once you enter the restaurant, it is rather large and has a good vibe. Our first visit was outstanding. We feasted on delicious ravioli, oxtail and cacio e pepe. Fantastico. Second... More

I came on a busy night with a reservation and was quickly seated with my wife. This is a very busy and maybe understaffed place so it was slow getting stuff. The food was good but Im not sure I would call it great. We had the starter of eggplant escabeche which was very good. I had a ravioli with... More

Visited here for lunch as part of a food tour - ate 3 x pasta dishes which were all delicious. Was surrounded by Italian people - which says something, must be good! And in the hot summer heat, the naturally cool temperature of this restaurant due to the way it's been constructed was very welcome relief! I understand they do... More

Staying in Testaccio

Neighborhood Profile
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.
