We had taken a food tour earlier in the week and fell in love with the Testaccio area of the city and the many dining options along the Tiber. We found this particular restaurant using the Tripadvisor Rome City App and were not disappointed.
Testaccio is known for unique presentation and preparation of the "5th quarter" which stems from the many years as Rome's slaughter house location. They prepare tripe,lungs, heart and tongue just to mention a few. Lo Scopettaro was an excellent choice to try these local recipes.
We dined on veal tripe (stomach) and various pastas, wine and delicious dessert. All were extremely well prepared and very good. Would definitely recommend making an evening visit to Testaccio for dinner at Lo Scopettaro, a walk through the lovely neighborhood and stroll along the Tiber north toward Vatican City. Makes for a very nice evening.

We arrived on my birthday and were given the name of this restaurant as a good place to go. One of the locals in a caffee recommended. It did not disappoint. We had a ball. They took our menus and served our group of 6 a family style meal. It was course after course of the most delicious local cuisine...simple and soooooo wonderful. The staff was fantastic and despite our limited Italian, we made it through and I can say this was a real highlight of our trip.

During a recent visit to Rome with friends we enjoyed a wonderful meal at Lo Scopettaro. The staff was gracious and the owner stopped by to chat with us - our limited Italian notwithstanding. We enjoyed the meal and evening so much that we decided to go back a second time. As before, the food, wine and service were excellent and all for a very reasonable price.
