Fodor's Review

It's everything you're looking for in true Roman eating experience: authentic, in a historic setting, and filled with Italians eating good food at good prices. In this very "romani di Roma" working-class neighborhood, and surrounded by discos and bars sharing Monte Testaccio, you can enjoy a meal of classic Roman pasta dishes (carbonara, amatriciana, etc.) or delicious fettucine with baby calamari and cherry tomatoes, along with some very good antipasti (try the mixed vegetable plate), and great meat mains like polpette di bollito (broiled meatballs) and flame-grilled lamb. The menu is simple and seasonal, and served either in the cozy, cavelike indoor dining rooms or outside under the umbrellas. For dessert order the tiramis├╣ with a Nutella chocolate center. There's a second location, called Velavevodetto ai Quiriti, in Prati, just around the corner from the Vatican.
