If you want authentic Romana cuisine, this place is definitely worth it! We got a sausage antipasto and pecorino romano cheese. The pasta with cacio and pepe was very good. The only thing is that my cousing ended up having way more black than I...did, in fact I had toa sk the waitress for additional fresh black pepper. The pollo with peperoni looked and sounded delicious, but we were not ready for it, it sounded a bit too much to diget for dinner. We'll definitely go back!More

Was recommended we eat in the Testaccio area of Rome to sample Roman dishes. Place we wanted was booked out so we chose here as a alternative based on 'Roman cuisine' . Enjoyed the food but be aware they feature many dishes with offal &...entrails. See menu I will post. Meals we had were good. Prices lot less than in Rome centre. E10 for pasta dishes.More

It is difficult to express what an ecstatic dining experience is, but if you really want to taste the quintessence of the refined Roman cuisine, this place is for you. For those who, like me, know and appreciate true Roman cuisine, this place is a...must-go. You will appreciate the freshness of the seasonal products, the seducing aromas of the local dishes which could be paired by an exquisite wine list. The service is friendly and professional, and the value for money excellent. To visit Rome and not treat yourself with a meal here is to miss part of the journey!More

Awesome pasta dishes and veggies. Most of the mains are offal, so a bit limited. But we found plenty on the menu to please us greatly.

I've been to Agustarello three times now, and enjoyed every visit. The service is delightful - polite and knowledgeable - and the dishes are beautifully simple, flavoursome and well-executed. I love the pajata in particular. I have taken various British friends there and they've loved...the coda alla vaccinara as well. The desserts are incredible too, and very decent house wines are now available. I'm always impressed by how reasonably-priced this restaurant is. Booking (by telephone...) is a must, as there aren't many covers, and it is clearly very popular with locals.More

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
