Fodor's Review

Literally carved out of a hill of ancient shards of amphorae, Checchino is an example of a classic, upscale, family-run Roman restaurant, with one of the best wine cellars in the region. Though the slaughterhouses of Testaccio are long gone, an echo of their existence carries on in the restaurant's classic dishes food—mostly offal and other cuts like trippa, pajata, and coratella (sweetbreads and beef heart) are all still on the menu for Roman purists. For the less adventuresome, house specialties include braised milk-fed lamb with seasonal vegetables.
