Twilight Testaccio Food Tour Guide

Roman cuisine (cucina Romana) was born in Testaccio. So where better to eat your way through all that Rome has to offer than the city’s original foodie neighbourhood? Testaccio is not only home to the famous quinto quarto (offal) that Rome is renowned for; it’s also the place where you’ll get away from the tourist crowds and get a glimpse of daily life.

Start the evening the way the Italians do – with an aperitivo at one of our favourite family-run cafés in Testaccio. You can’t get more refreshing than an Aperol Spritz!


Address: Piazza Testaccio 40

This typical local restaurant and pizzeria specialises in Roman street food paired with Prosecco – a dry sparkling wine made from the Glera grape.


Address: Via Luca della Robbia 21/23

At this trendy bar run by couple Emiliano and Rita you’ll sample some of Italy’s finest cheeses and meats and enjoy a glass of wonderful, local wine.


Address: Via Galvani 39/41

Built on top of Monte Testaccio, this restaurant specializes in Rome’s famous quinto quarto (offal) – and coda alla vaccinara (oxtail) and trippa alla romana (tripe) in particular. Wash them down with a bold red wine!


Address: Via Galvani 24a

This foodie hole-in-the-wall serves its eponymous creation: the trapizzino – a thick, triangular pizza-bread pocket filled with a selection of cucina povera. And a regional craft beer, of course!

Graduate from our gelato school at Giolitti, the bustling neighborhood bar serving up some of the city’s best since 1914.
