I was here twice and it was in both occasions the same. Steak so and so, the rest disappointing. I think who rates this restaurant as great has never been in good steakhouses and I think experienced TripAdvisor users can confirm. Most of all, it's overpriced! I would avoid it.

We had our Airbnb location about a block away from this restaurant so it was nice for the two meals we were just too dam tired to go anywhere for dinner. The food was very good for the prices. We had various pizzas each time we went and came away with happy bellies. The drinks were great as well. We... More

I am a steak lover and this was one of the best I've ever had. My wife had the pumpkin risotto and it was also outstanding. Would go back in a heartbeat!

Away from the tourist areas but centrally located close to Termini station Porca Vacca is an excellent local steakhouse. It seems popular with locals which is a good sign and a few tourists also drop in. Unlike the popular tourist restaurants we didn't have anyone trying to convince us to eat there or usher us in but once we entered... More

When you travel, it's cool to find a place like this, unique, authentic, and popular among locals and not tourists. They have really tasty local food and house wine. Also it seems to be a family business and the stuff is very hospitable, kind and friendly. Very nice atmosphere ))

The food was delicious! I ended up ordering an extra side of potatoes not knowing that they already came with the steak. I had a fillet, really soft, cooked just the way I liked it. My only complaint was the saltiness of the steak. I really liked the herbs the potatoes were seasoned with, though. That and a beer and... More

Been there with a group of friends for a dinner. Ordered starters and different main dishes and were very pleased. Both meats, starters, salads and pizzas were very good. Will come again for a giant steak!

Staying in San Lorenzo

Neighbourhood Profile
San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo may look all street with its pulse in urban art and street food, but don’t be fooled. This gritty student neighbourhood immediately east of Termini train station is on the avant-garde rise. Art galleries, curated mural projects by artists like Rome’s favorite Alice, charming cafes, and boutique restaurants are slowly infiltrating the streets of San Lorenzo with counter-culture chic. Don’t worry, San Lorenzo still retains its local vibe with weekend festivals and demonstrations, and is always a hub for Rome’s university student scene.
