Fantastic trattoria in the Testaccio neighborhood of Rome. This is a place locals go, and they do an excellent job on classic Roman dishes. Enjoyed the bruschetta with chicory, tonarelli alla gricia, and stewed oxtail drenched in coco and with raisins. Also liked the fruit...More

The location is a little bit away from touristy places so you'll just see locals here which I like. I had the Amatriciana which was very good. The wine was OK. Prices were quite good.

We were recommended to this restaurant by a local who went there in Testacchio often. We asked them where they ate and found that we were delighted to eat there too. It was very easy to find, unassuming in the extreme, devour non existent but...More

We went for lunch. They open from noonish to 3pm, as do most Italian Restaurants and then re-open for dinner either at 7 or 730pm. It is a neighborhood restaurant and it has limited menu. They also serve 'interesting' dishes like lamb entrails, oxtail, etc....More

A small, family-run local trattoria with some outdoor tables in summer. The fare is traditional Testaccio — the inexpensive 'fifth quarter' of the animal gets star billing in Rome's old meatpacking district. Offal is sensitively cooked here, so if you're a little nervous but fancy...More

This was a wonderful place for dinner. The menu was in Italian and we were the only Americans in the restaurant, but the waiter spoke enough english to help us order and wasn't irritated while doing so. The food was fresh and delicious and the...More

Augustarello a Testaccio is one of the last gem of Rome. Augustarello himself come from a historic trattoria now unfortunately closed, Turiddo. Food is real, just for the brave...they say is for many but not for all. Although they have the Classics, such as matriciana,...More

This is one of our favorite places to eat when in Rome. Originally turned on to Agustarello by the folks we were staying with, we go back for the traditional hearty and unpretentious Roman "working man's" dishes called cucina povera or "cusine of the poor",...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
