Its like the Italian Cheers and with roast meats.

We came here based on the reco of our tour guide as we wanted some pasta and were planning to go see the Pyramid of Cestius (which is just down the street from the restaurant). We walked in thru the non-descript glass doors. It was the only door that didn't have a message on it Although it does say... read more

This restaurant is a long standing favourite in Testaccio and the decor certainly is traditional. We decided to go for lunch one day to give it a try. My husband, the anchovy, offal lover was in his glory...not only were puntarelle in season but they came dressed in an anchovy dressing. He followed this starter with an order of rigatoni... More

We had a lovely meal there on friday night without reservation and we were welcomed with open arms. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helped us with the language barrier as we had zero Italian. Great dinner. Great dessert 😊

Perilli is a traditional restaurant with a tradition. I love it! People come here for Sunday lunch, for celebrations, for dinner with old friends. The menu is hardcore Roman/Testaccio cuisine, prepared with excellent products and in the manner you'd expect. The service is good, although the waiters have a certain I've-been-doing-this-for-100-years air that can put some people off. Other diners... More

My husband and I were with another couple and also met friends from Berlin. We all ordered a different roasted meat entree all of which were terrible. One of the entrees was a chunk of pork that was all fat and dried blood, another the backbone of a chicken covered with peppers, another barely warmed slices of veal with over... More

Our expectations were mixed but this old trattoria did not disappoint. Traditional Roman fare, prepared well. Excellent pastas, good mains. Decent enough wine list, absolutely no complaints about the service and reasonable prices. A bustling, family-style eatery, we'd go back.

This was a spectacular meal. I got the recommendation from the Eat Italy app that was a spot on tool for our gastronomical trip through Italy. The rigatoni carbonara is not to be missed. Only one of you will get the bowl it's mixed in, so fight over it! A surprise was the lovely al brodo with bucatini. My 11... More

we have eaten all over the world and in Italy more times than I can count! It was recommended as a family restaurant with good food. It is a really good family restaurant but with terrible food and awful service. It is hard to know where to start...I will only describe my meal which was chicken and peppers. Lots of... More

I made my annual pilgrimage to Trattoria Perilli and I'm happy to say the carbonara remains an excellent choice. The trattoria also has many othe Roman specialities on offer, including artichokes and chicory salad which I also enjoyed. A wonderful meal was capped off by delicious fragolini con limone...Service can sometimes be gruff, but our waiter was dvery nice!

Neighborhood Profile
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 businesses and has one of the city's larger produce markets.
