We had both lunch and dinner at Taverna Volpetti--both positive experiences with excellent food and attentive service. I appreciated the staff's recommendation of quite a few gluten-free options. Their salumi and cheese board was the best I had on our entire trip, and the wine...More

We really enjoyed our lunch at Volpetti. We were originally going to a nearby restaurant that ended up being closed for vacation and stumbled upon Volpetti by chance. It is a slick modern taverna with classic dishes and friendly service.

A little bit pricey for this area but you get what you pay for! We've got an assortment of cheese and salame and some wine and we love them all! Delicious! Highly recommended!

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
