My Italian friends who live in Rome took me here and I'm glad they did. Busy, full of Locals and very good food. We were a party of ten and all were delighted with the food wine and service. I am prone to trying anything...More

A nice authentic, traditional family restaurant just the kind we like, away from the tourist traps, it was recommended to us by a friend who now lives in Rome. We both had the Amatriciana (think that's the correct spelling), a thicker spaghetti with small pieces...More

This was our first night in Rome and we were not disappointed. The mussels were great with a light white wine and butter sauce. My husband got the mushroom pizza which I wouldn't say was the best pizza ever but the sauce and cheese were...More

I love this place for its wonderful welcoming atmosphere, fun service and fabulous food. The 'mountain' ham and mozzarella is the best I've ever had, the pizzas and pastas deliciously fresh and tasty, a good selection of wine and wonderful friendly staff. You feel part...More

Da Bucatino serves basic Italian dishes and clearly caters to tourists - nothing wrong with that - but the food is middling, to average, to just plain sucky. I only call this out because it seems to have a real reputation, which is exactly what...More

We were treated to this restaurant by a friend that lives just outside of Rome. The house red complimented the Bucatino perfectly. I would recommend the bucatino as it is the house specialty and you get a bib to wear to save splashing your clothes....More

Helpful and cheerful Italian men, serving classic Italian dishes. We had the vegetable soup, buccatini arrabiata and romana chicken. Amazing!

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
