It does not get more traditional than this. Borderline rude service but very funny and attentive at the same time. Tried the classic, bucatini all’amatriciana, loved them. Great large portion. No wonder it is loved by the local people!
We were a party of 8 and each of us ordered something different and the dishes were all really well cooked and tasty. As you would suspect the signature dish is bucatini all'amatriciana which I had and was delicious. The veal dish I had was...the least exciting. The lemon sorbet was also very tasty and given the heat of Rome that day 35C, was a nice way to round off a lively meal with family.More
My fish was nothing special and two pieces were raw (had ordered roasted shrimps and calamari). They charged us for tap water(“ionizzata”), which I find unacceptable. I do not have a provlem paying for bottled water but regular tap water to cost 2 euros...The tiramisu...came in a plastic box which also sucks since i did not order take-away but sat at a restaurant.More
Fantastic amatriciana! Bring your appetite...it's a generous portion, but you won't find better anywhere. (And, yes, you DO need the bib!) The grilled baccalà is also excellent as is the grilled salsicce. Family-style atmosphere with a noticeable touch of disdain for Americans (some of our...waitstaff didn't realize there were Italian speakers at the table who overheard some of their comments) Even so, the amatriciana alone is worth putting up with a little attitude. We'll be back someday!More
The best trattoria in Rome. Friendly staff, great atmosphere and excellent food. The fettuccine with mushroom and truffle is a highlight. Best antipasti bar we have seen (and we have been in Rome twice a year for more than 12 years). Ask to sit with...Paolo and Mounir - a great team who really look after you. This is the definition of a family restaurant. Don’t miss the Millefollie dessert! Heaven on a plate. My daughter and I look forward to it every trip this is not a tourist restaurant. It’s authentic, local and now part of a family tradition for us. No it won’t win a Michelin star but you won’t regret a meal at Da Bucatino if you love real food with ambience and friendly service.More
Four of us, all adults, ate at Da Bucatino 7ish and found the food excellent, the service good, amiable and helpful in pleasant old-style surroundings. Prices are moderate.
We all had pasta dishes. I had Tonarelli Cacio e Pepe - a simple but difficult pasta...dish tossed with Cheese and pepper - the trick is to get the pasta perfectly al dente after it is mixed with the cheese and pepper. Bucatino was very good, 90 of 100. Perfectly al dente A touch more olive oil, not fatal.
My wife pasta carbonara was also cooked perfectly. Our other two eaters had the same reaction to their pasta,
Only one of us had a *secondi course, that veal that she said was excellent. Deserts were simple e.g. tiramisu, but excellent. We plan to go back, perhaps for lunch. Bucatino has lunch, noon to 3: and dinner 7 p,m, to 11. Check the hours. Bucatino is located in Testaccio, convenient to where we usually stay on Aventino Hill.
The decor is relatively spartan - old photographs from an earlier era, plain tables and chairs. Not particularly plush or elegant, but more than okay.
The staff get the job done and are helpful. The owner helped a customer get on line, then us later. It’s not an Internet cafe, but many of us have a need.
A final note. The neighboring area has academic groups gathering. A group of about 16, I assume with academic ties, occupied a slice of tables and chairs in the center of the room without overloading the room at all. The prices are very moderate.More
Wonderful family place. Recommend by the AirBB. Great antipasto salad bar for 6 euros . Food was fabulous as well as the service! Ignore negative comments about tourists- our server could not have been nicer. I’ve been in Italy for 6 weeks and I truly...enjoyed this place ! Make a reservation or come really early when it opens . Also try the wine bar down the street on piazza Testaccio . Outside and indoor seating .More
We ate here 3 nights in a row and it didn't disappoint. The gnocchi were excellent and so was the truffle pasta. I also had the lasagna and the veal. The side salad for 4 euros was HUGE and sharable with 3 people. All in...all the food was excellent and the staff welcoming. Mario was charming and was able to find us a seat since two of the nights we didn't have a reservation. Definitely get the house 1/3 wine for 3 euros - so worth it. We didn't do dessert but, there is a nice gelato place around the corner which was very good too. This is a must do in Rome.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 hit, the area is full of locally owned small
businesses and has one of the city's larger produce markets.
Hi Anne Marie, I can tell you the technique. First, clean thoroughly the artichoke removing any hard parts. Place in a pot covered in oil and cook at very low temperature until soft. Remove, dry and bring the oil to max... More
Hi Anne Marie, I can tell you the technique. First, clean thoroughly the artichoke removing any hard parts. Place in a pot covered in oil and cook at very low temperature until soft. Remove, dry and bring the oil to max temperature. Put the artichoke in the oil for two minutes or crispy. Add a little salt. Ciao have fun
