Initially we thought about cancelling our reservation after reading some bad reviews here. luckily we didn't . this place served lovely food with good atmosphere. Rome is packed with tourists and it is very natural that restaurant hires 1 -2 waitress who speak english. these staff are usually italian and could speak English with a standard which allows them to...

I made a reservation for this restaurant after reading the stellar reviews of its cacio e pepe, and it did not disappoint! We ventured to the Testaccio neighborhood (not a particularly nice walk at night from the train station). We ordered the supli (very similar to arancini) and they were huge! We both ordered the caio e pepe and it... More

Had two dinners here in a week, for work functions. Obviously a popular place. Very generous servings of honest food. The entrees and pasta were good. The tripe was OK not great. Did not choose wines but what we had were fine.

Considering the online hype I was a little disappointed. The good: The wine is good for the price. The oxtail was flavorful and delicate. Our waiter was polite and accommodating. Overall price is pretty decent. The not so good: Gnats. Our table was surrounded by gnats. The meatballs and eggplant were both...ok. Some of the syaff are pretty rude. (Got... More

Fisrt we start with Pasta, the Raviolis and Carbonara was amazing, to much al dente to my taste but it was the italian way. Then de main course we taste the entrecot, osobuco and the beef stew, perfect point of cook. To the osobuco I miss the medulla from the bone, it was ripped out I think in the cooking,... More

My review: After reading positiive reviews I was really looking forward to this place. I really wanted to like this place but unfortunately I couldn't. I had matriciana and trippa, it was good but nothing special. More than anything I was disappointed by the not so friendly service and the place was almost exclusively occupied by tourists. As a tourist... More

Went there with a group of friends while visiting Italy. The food is pretty good but their service can definitely improve. Overall, it was OK. We had three kids with us and it wasn't the best place for them. We ordered about 6-7 pasta dishes and they were all good. Their tiramisu was also reasonable.

I wanted to experience true Cucina Romana and this was it! I had Pasta Carbonara and my friend had Cacio e Pepe, so you can't get more 'Romana' than that and the food did not disappoint! We went for 'pranzo', the Italian larger meal at 1pm, so all of the other diners were Italian. I imagine all of the tourists... More

This restaurant is located further from the touristic areas. Basically you need to take metro or taxi to get there, especially during the night. There is not much else going on near the restaurant. The food is cheap and good, but rich and greasy, not for the faint hearted. There were a lot of tourists, but it was understandable, since... More

After so many glowing reviews, I was expecting slightly more refined Roman dishes. The antipasti were great but the classic cacio e pepe was dry and relatively insipid. Perhaps it's a different chef at lunch but it lacked flavor...

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.
