we have booked in advance - but even though we have to wait long time before we was seated. We feel that we was not welcome. The decoration is funny and strange but the chairs are awful. We got the menu card in English which was fine - but the waiter did not understand any English - and a lot... More

This is tourist trap. Please note that the 5 star reviews are written by foreigners and most italian reviews are bad. The decor is ok, mostly old pieces of furniture, if you appreciate old metal chairs, which by the way are very uncomfortable. The food is nothing special, the antipasti were fine, but the grilled meat we had was burnt... More

I enjoyed the pasta, but the dish was too tall for me :) The pasta was good but a bit heavier than normal (yes, Cacio e Pepe is heavy but definition), and starter was really interesting (but arrived cold). The main dining room is a bit noisy, but it's really nice looking - it used to be a butchery! Historical... More

don't waste your time here, especially if you like good wine. Food is medium quality at best, and even if the wine list looks ok, they don't have most of the advertised bottles in stock. So either you have to go very cheap or very expensive. They don't have real wine glasses, so they serve wine in water glasses, like... More

Out of the main tourist area. Service was a little underwhelming, the locals seemed to get a better reception. That being said, the food was worth it alone. Delicious and oh my the tiramisu!

We arranged our booking through our Hotel. This is not a typical tourist destination - most of the clients were clearly local. The restaurant was packed so obviously popular. The menu was extensive but the waitress explained it to us. While they was the usual pizza and pasta offerings - there was much more to sample. Overall the quality was... More

An jewel in the heart of Testaccio neighbourhood. Unexpected place, with a warm environment and stunning food and great atmosphere. Very nice service and pretty much reasonable prices

We travelled from Australia to Europe on our honeymoon where we were so lucky to have had the pleasure to stay at the beautiful B&B Angelina La Corte and dine at their restaurant Angelina a Testaccio. The service was efficient and accommodating, and the food was absolutely delicious. We are very glad to have experienced the true local food. If... More

Decided to give Angelina's a try. Large selection on the menu to choose from. Staff very attentive and helpful. Two of us at dinner. One of us had a pizza which was excellent the other a fillet steak which was from the BBQ menu and had been cooked like the pizza in a wood oven. Both excellent. Recommended

I like this restaurant and it tends to be on my regular places for a diner with friends - specially non Italian! It will not let you down but it will also not amaze you.

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.
