Was told about this place by and friend and went to give it a try.Its a little bit outside city center but a taxi ride from the colloseum e.g. would not cost the earth any would be money well spent,what a find, the food here is the best example of authentic roman cuisene that you will find anywere in this town .The owner Massimo is a professional operator and you can see by the way he works he is passionate about his place.The quality of food and dishes available are second to none and all are seasonal and regional.Started with a top shelf antipasti to share with fresh ricotta ,buffolo mozzeralla ,polpette,frittata,and panzerella.We followed 2 mix griil with roast potatoes and a pasta cacce e pepe all of which were fantastic. To finish home made tiramisu , great coffee and digistifs including a lt of house falangehna and soft drinks all for under 75 euro.Why get stung by city center tourist traps when real restaurants like this place exist, the place was full of happy local customers and the service from start to finish was relaxed and efficent, there is no menu as such and the host explains what is on offer for that day, trust me you will not be sorry when you visit, if you love real food, real athmosphere real people, real quality and a real good price then il Coccio is the place for you, go see Massimo and,enjoy!!!!!

We went to this restaurant as it was the top rated one one tripadvisor. Whilst there is definitely nothing wrong with it, I'm not sure it should be the one with the highest score.
1st of all, to get there from the centre of rome it takes around 20 minutes on the metro, then a 5 minute walk to the bus stop & then a 15 minute ride on the bus.

I am quite used to not having menus printed in english but this restaurant does not have a menu at all. There seems to be a standard selection of starters which every is given as soon as they arrive. These were generally very nice but I would prefer to be able to choose what I want. Despite the best efforts of one staff member who did speak english we weren't able to get very much information about what mains were available. We eventually ordered two pasta dishes which were nicely cooked. I asked if there was a wine list (there wasn't) & three bottles of wine were brought out for me to choose from. No information was given about the price of anything until we got the bill.
Having said all that, the prices were fairly reasonable for Rome, we did like the food & the service was friendly. Also it was obviously very popular with locals (it was nearly full when we left).

Glad we went. Atmosphere, service and food were perfect. The waitress, Emily, nice and helpfull. The food great. You must be carefull cause you do eat too much as the Antipastos are fantastic. People will say it's far but in 20 minutes you get there and i am sure, you wont regret.

The owner was very nice, the food was PERFECTO, the atmosphere was incredible. We could have gone back and eaten there again. The price was very reasonable. This restaurant is a gem. In a lesser-known Rome neighborhood, but worth the trip.
