I do not know where to begin. This is one of the worse restaurants we've ever dined at, and for sure atrocious customer service experience!!!! Our stay in Italy was very short, we came to visit Linea Pelle Rho Fiera in Milan for business, we then decided to go to Rome for a couple of days to enjoy the attractions... More

We are extremely sorry for what happened, it is an absolutely unique event. We would like to clarify that our restaurant makes no racial discrimination and indeed is popular with tourists for the friendliness and conviviality. What happened is a set of unfortunate coincidences. The restaurant manager, who normally presides activity, was sick that week along with two attendants. The... More

We went here for lunch as the restaurant next door we wanted was full. The pumpkin ravioli was good, the service was fine, but the second courses were not even a little bit worth the money. My husband got the lamb chops...which were the worst cut of meat I have ever seen in a restaurant and so over cooked he... More

We were welcomed with a smile even though we entered through the wrong door. Interesting menu - we live in Umbria so it's always nice to find items not sold in every other restaurant. Fair wine selection at good prices. No pressure to order more than we wanted, in fact we were very tempted to order dessert, but before we... More

Everything was nice and the food was special. Absolutely to try carciofo alla guida and tonnarelli cicoria and pecorino.

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and will return. La Fraschetta has a wide range of very good dishes, and each that we have enjoyed has been delicious. Their appetizers are excellent and their Jerusalem artichokes are among the best we have tasted. Prices are very reasonable. Most of the clientele are local, which says much about how... More

Cuisine and service ok. Waitress available to our requests. The food is very tasty. We got the starter with cheese and confitures and then meet as main course. Good experience. Don't miss it.

We went to La Fraschetta di Mastro Giorgio for dinner together with a group of friends, all foreigners, who occasionally meet up in Rome. We had been to the restaurant a few years ago and remembered it for its good food - unfortunately something has changed! The service was unfriendly to say the least, most of the dishes on the...

From the menu, there was No fish, no preferred pasta, no 1st and 2nd Choice in wine, and the only veg they had was broccoletti... Which was cooked to mush! The bistecca at 18 Euros was fatty gristly and tasteless... More

We had dinner here with friends from Rome. They have great specialties from this area. We had cured pork, fresh homemade large tortellini pasta with spinach, marinated artichokes and local fresh cheese selection. Service was excellent, friendly and helpful. Good Job!

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.
