I stopped in here with my folks on Friday evening, on the advice of their hotel concierge. What a recommendation! The place was packed with locals - a good sign. We were placed right away at a tucked away table and waited on by a very personable nonna. She was wonderful. The house wine was reasonable and very good. We each had pasta, including one bucatini, the signature dish, and all of them were fantastic. Our bill came to just less than 50 euro for three people. I would definitely go back.

After the disappointment of the Pyramid being covered in scaffolding and the Protestant cemetery closing early on Sunday (who knew cemeteries had operating hours?), stumbling by chance on this restaurant salvaged the afternoon. We had a late lunch on Sunday and thoroughly enjoyed it: wonderful vegetable soup, an arugula salad with parmigiano, spaghetti al pomodoro and a roasted rabbit dish, plus wine and cappuccinos. We found this restaurant on day 6 of our trip to Rome and it is definitely the best meal we've had so far: high-quality, very tasty, friendly service and reasonably priced. It's a neighbourhood hot spot - very busy and full of action, and we were the only tourists in the place.

Was recommended to us by a resident of Rome and was one of the best meals we while in Italy. The atmosphere was perfect and everything we ordered was delicious. The signature bucatino pasta was soooooo good! Don't forget to top off with dessert...tiramisu was yummy! A definite MUST on the next trip to Rome.

We visited this charming trattoria on the advice of a cab driver and were pleasantly surprised by the excellent service, tasty cuisine and excellent value offered in this neighborhood restaurant off the beaten path. Our host, Paolo, whose family owns and operates the restaurant was welcoming and informative and even took the time to sit and visit for a while. The food was well prepared and delicious and the wine cheap and very palatable.
Romans will tell you that the residents of Testaccio consider themselves the only true Romans and we were delighted to be welcomed as old friends even though it was our first visit. It will certainly not be our last.

We stumbled upon the place by accident. Our hotel was close to and just after we arrived we had to find a place for lunch. It was late, so almost everything was closed. As we walked past Trattoria de Bucatino they appearede closed. But when we looked within, the waiter almost pulled into Trattoria de Bucatino. The waiter did not speak much English, but he was polite and quick. The food was really delicious. Very tasteful and good size portions. We were there 2 more times over the next 4 days and finally the waiter had come to know us, then he started telling jokes. The last night we let him determine our main course. He served chest from a baby pig. The main course was simply sublime
