We stopped in to Pecorino while wandering "a piede" on a beautiful spring day. No one was there when we first got there; shortly thereafter the restaurant was filled with locals. Great food, a very interesting restaurant. Obviously frequented by people who know---- the locals.

Highly recommend this warm inviting place. Marco our waiter was perfectly versed with the menu and his recommendations were fabulous. From the veal hocks to trippa, pasta to die for with guanciale and fava beans (allá griola), and roast veal that melts! Amazing and highly...More

As a tourist it's hard to know this was good Roman cuisine. I was told by local friends that it is. TBH I found it nice but a bit bland. We had three types of carciofi (meh), some average pasta dishes, saltimbocca and pecorino with...More

Have been here for dinner twice. Both times, we were the only native English speakers. The fried artichokes were amazing, as was the penne arrabbiata and eggplant pamagiana. The staff was friendly and service prompt. Would definitely return on every trip to Rome.

Prime location and nice staff, but that's all for me. Basic old timey decor and average food didn't make for a great evening. We had fritti for antipasto and it was fairly bland and slightly overlooked. My cacio e pepe was too salty and, as...More

Visited with a group of friend by suggestion of a local. Very traditional restaurant. We had artichokes in many different ways and they were a-ma-zing. I didn't like the pasta very much, it was full of oil. A nice experience overall

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

Is this the restaurant of Maurizio's uncle Franco? Maurizio has a restaurant in Norwalk, CT called Osteria Romano and he highly recommends Trattoria Pecorino for a dinner in Rome. We will be in ROme on June 17th and would like to make a reservation if this is the restaurant.
