The Rigatoni Matriciana and Cacio e Pepe are fantastic! Definitely the best pasta we had on our whole trip. Great service with a nice atmosphere, nice wine selection and the zucchini app was killer!! Will be my first stop on my next trip to Italy!!

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
