Fodor's Review

Literally carved into the side of a hill made up 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. One of the first restaurants to open near Testaccio's (now long closed) slaughterhouse, the restaurant still serves classic offal dishes (though the white-jacketed waiters can also suggest other options).
