Excellent cacio et pepe pasta. Wonderful roasted sweetbreads and stuffed beef rolls in tomato sauce.Great sauce on the amatriciana but rigatoni a little too al dente maybe...always a balance between different palate expectations...helpful staff and feel lucky to have gotten a reservation at short notice....Mainly local eaters it seemed which is no bad thing!More

I ordered take away from here yesterday because it is down the street and Rome is still not all the way open. The food was delicious! I don't always like take away but their pasta, sausage, and dessert were soo good. The service was professional...and helpful. They were kind and accommodating (my Italian is not so good) I will definitely go backMore

We were so lucky to get a table here on a rainy night-even though it was a weekday the place was packed with locals. The emphasis is very much on traditional Roman food,particularly offal. To start we shared a pasta dish with oxtail-the oxtail was...melt in the mouth-the best I have ever had. For secondi we had the beef involtini(beef rolls in a tomato sauce),pajata(lamb intestines with milk inside cooked in a tomato sauce with bay),and coratella(interior) of lamb.All really well done-my partner found the pajata a little heavy as it is so creamy, but that is down to personal taste. All washed down with decent wine. Great atmosphere and food-we will be backMore

always robust in the quality of food and speed of service. you can eat the true romane dishes, including the 5/4, without concern for your body. even the house wine is far better than average homologous ones.

Went there with some locals. The place is very spartan but if you look for a place to eat local food agustarello is definitely your place. We had appetizer to share, pasta and some involtini, a bottle of wine, amaro, coffee and a slice of...crostata. There were only local people (always good sign of excellent food) and the staff was super busy but still super friendly and helpful. I personally had pasta with pajata that is cow intestine cooked in tomatoes sauce and pecorino Romano. It was delicious although some people may find it disgusting (mistakenly). The other people with me found the food amazing too. Short Carta dei vini but still nice selection. They offered us the coffee and the amaro. Prices are lower than average in Rome. I would rate it 9. Highly highly recommendedMore

We asked our friends in Roma for a real Roman traditional restaurant after having been disappointed by the restaurant we ate at last night (Rossi Tiziano) near Termini Train Station, and they told us about Augustarello a Testaccio. We came and ordered different dishes from...the menù and we have to admit that we finally got the chance to eat properly, both in terms of quality and in terms of service; and also the price was fair. We ordered the very typical pasta cacio e pepe (pasta with pecorino cheese and black peppercorn) and the just as famous pasta alla amatriciana (originally from the poor town that was just destroyed by the earthquake a couple of years ago). Both pastas were just delicious. Then we ordered one of the oldest and most renowned all-Roman main course: abbacchio (lamb's meet) and we were delighted! I fully recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys good traditional food and is willing to leave the typical tourist places of central Rome.More

Finally, a true Roman meal, amazing offal and pasta. We took a 10 stop bus ride (from Barberini Piazza)to the local meat district but it’s worth it! Good value and perfect taste! We found everything on our “When-in-Rome-eat what-the-Romans-eat” list to order: veal intestines (with...milk inside), tendon salad, tripes, sweetbread, carbonara pasta, artichokes... The sweetbread and Carbonara were so good that we ate 2 rounds of them.More

Plain, homely ambience, friendly efficient staff. Pasta was excellent. We all relished the carbonara. One of us had the oxtail, the other two had the lamb with roast potatoes. One of these was good but mine was a little dry and over cooked. Desserts good....Wine decent value and all-in-all, an enjoyable meal for a very reasonable price.More

Been to many top rated osteria's but this was the best one. Service was amazing. Food was A+. Red wine was slightly chilled. So spot on. Highly recommended!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel when we requested a real local trattoria, and it was very real and very local! This was the only eatery in Rome where we were the only foreigners! It was so local that most items on...the menu were innards, which we don't eat, but we settled for cacio e pepe and oxtail. I have to say that casio was not as good to my taste as it was in other restaurants, and the portion was smaller. The oxtail was my first ever, and it was good, but came with no side dish. The real winners were their desserts: the chocolate cake and the fruit tart were served warm and tasted amazingly good! Overall, I enjoyed our meal - it was very authentic.More

Stopped by for lunch and I definitely chose the right place! Service was impeccable and waitstaff was attentive, and the oxtail was amazing! I loved the atmosphere, and pricing was reasonable. Seems like more people came for dinner.

When in Rome, do look for something beyond the amatriciana and the carbonara (and Pizza is from Naples...). In the Testaccio neighborhood there are some gems that still reflect the connection with the offal or "quinto quarto" in that area where the slaughterhouses were set....Agustarello serves these characteristic dishes - coda alla vaccinara is pretty accessible, as well as totally delicious. Coratella - liver and other offal - may be more of a stretch but it's really well done. Abbachio or suckling lamb is also a speciality. Don't miss this.More

Fantastic little restaurant with amazing food. We had the sweatbreads, the coratella (lamb's entrails) with artichoke and the oxtail. All the dishes were amazing. Didn't see any tourists and the staff were extremely friendly. House wine at 10e for 1litre was very good. One of...my best meals in RomeMore
