Nice place in the center of Rome, industrial styled with live music. Quality food. Cocktail bar. Big. Ok for groups.

Some friends invited me on a Monday evening to the 10 € "all-you-can-eat aperitivo" and I can say I felt really good here, there was a bunch of people from all over the world having a language exchange event, the place was lively and the choice of food was good too (ranging from pasta to rice to various cold meats,...

We were there for the brunch on sunday. Service was terrible, they kept on rushing us out. Food was okish, nothing special for the price they charge. Definitely not coming back.

I went to Rec23 with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. We ate something (they have great burgers! Vegan option available!!) and drank cocktails, wine and beers, all really good. Prices are quite high: 9€ a cocktail, 5/7€ a glass of wine, 5€ a beer, but there are discounts of you get a main dish. The atmosphere is... More

Lots of burger choices and other typical American choices. Some pasta and Italian options too. Burgers were great, pasta was good to. We just ate dinner but it looks like it becomes a scene in the late hours. Lots of drink options too. Go there if you want a break from Italian but don't want something stupid like Burger King.

I have been here three times for an Apperitivo with a group of friends. They have some great craft beers, a nice selection of cocktails (including non-alcoholic ones), and the Apperitivo is the best I have seen - tasty, healthy foods with some meats, pasta and vegetarian dishes. The live band is good, and definitely adds to the ambiance.

You like aperitivo? This is the place for you. With the 10€ you can have a nice drink and buffet. On Saturday the table reservation is a good idea.

First time i had an APERITIVO here! Very nice furniture and design, the place is cool. I was surprised by the food even if I do not eat meat and fish. A lot of choice and very good quality. Wide choice of craft beers and cocktails and with 10 € you get a drink and the free open buffet! If... More

Been there a few times, the food is always great for aperitivo and that's why you'd better make a reservation. Sometimes music is abit loud and try to avoid the rear dining room where chairs are piled one upon the other.

Great restaurant & bar, with friendly people, lovely dishes (not all typical Italian though, but still great!) and great cocktails and wine! One of the best of Rome!

Staying in Testaccio

Neighbourhood Profile
Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio, an ancient Roman port and former working class neighbourhood 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.
