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. Although the slaughterhouses of Testaccio are long gone, their echo carries on in the restaurant's classic dishes—mostly offal and other cuts like trippa (tripe), pajata (intestines), and coratella (sweetbreads and beef heart) are all still on the menu for Roman purists. For the less adventurous, other house specialties include braised milk-fed lamb with seasonal vegetables.
