We were greeted by the extremely friendly staff and shown to our table and bought menus straight away. The waitress asked if we need any help with the menus. On her recommendation we got the freshly sliced procsciotto and the salami and honey bruschetta - both were excellent, the meat was so creamy. For main I had the roasted pig... More

Forget Bourdain, Zimmerman etc. I am a hardcore foodie and this place is faultless. Excellent service, excellent food, great wine list and an action packed atmosphere. The food was exceptionally fresh and authentic. Beautiful bruschetta topped with Lardo & Honey, grilled vegetables and tomatoes, wild boar ragu with fresh pasta and then oxtail with roman style artichokes. It's a little... More

My family of 4 walked into a very full restaurant. Although we had no reservations, a table was made available for us. The lady who served us was so nice. She tried her best to speak English and point out the specialty dishes. We had the best woodfired pizza and the crispy suckling pig dish. I've had lechon my whole... More

The pasta was amazing but the next was the suckling pig dish with potatoes. I think I went to heaven it was incredible. Make sure you make an earlier reservation to ensure they have it as they slow cook the pig all day and once it's gone, it's gone!!

We had lunch here during our trip to Rome. After reading several blogs written about this restaurant claiming how great the food is, I made a reservation for lunch. The restaurant is quite far from the touristy areas but well worth the trip. The staff was very friendly and the food was amazing. I had a vegetarian past dish and... More

La Tavernaccia was recommended by a friend. We dined here on our last evening in Rome. We arrived without a confirmed reservation, and the staff accommodated us, despite a busy night. From the hand carved Umbrian ham, to the elegant pastas and desserts that left you asking for more, everything was simply superb! This was a dinner to remember. We... More

This is the type of restaurant that I was expecting from a Rome experience. It is small, friendly, not crowded with excellent service , amazing food and quality wine by the glass. The quality and quantity of the food is superb, the bread is very fresh and amazing and the coffee is great.

We were recommended by our taxi driver who made our reservation at this family run restaurant & drove us from the opposite side of Rome & it was the best decision of the week. Their lovely friendly helpful staff were as fantastic as their food. The menu had lots of choice at medium prices-especially considering their food quality. We will... More
