The restaurant looks good, but the food just wasn't up to scratch. Being beside a busy main road also doesn't help things.

We ate there last weekend, around 10 of us. We all had high expectations but the amount of salt in the lamb and in the pasta were about 3x or 4x as much as required. Everyone had the same problem, even those who love salt....More

Just finished eating here and felt I needed to post straight away. Whilst the pasta dishes we had were good the serving staff were most unfriendly despite me ordering in Italian. We were there for just an hour and were eye-balled as they wanted the...More

The food was really tasty and was good value for a small amount of money. But the place itself was not very cozy.

This place is excellent for traditional Roman classics--heart, lung, trippa, etc. It's also a wonderful place to get Cacio e Pepe and other fresh, Roman pasta dishes. Authentic Roman cuisine only here. We were the only non-Italians in the place each time we were there....More

Very tasty food, well prepared. The menu was a lot of pages full of choices, making the decision rather difficult... The place was full of Italians which is definitely a sign of good quality.

Small and cosy trattoria only seating about 25 people. Well worth the trip to Testaccio. Best parmigiana in a long time, cacio e pepe and then veal and sausage. Good food and good value to.

Went here for our last dinner in Rome. What a way to end on a high note! The homemade fettuccine with porcini was perfectly cooked and marvelous. Also, it was a very generous portion. We followed with roasted veal in wine which was also terrific....More

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
