This place is excellent for traditional Roman classics--heart, lung, trippa, etc. It's also a wonderful place to get Cacio e Pepe and other fresh, Roman pasta dishes. Authentic Roman cuisine only here. We were the only non-Italians in the place each time we were there....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
