Flavio al Velavevodetto
Dine on cucina romana in one of Rome's most historic settings.
Built into the side of ancient Roman dumpsite Monte Testaccio--a man-made mountain formed from broken terracotta pots-- Flavio’s serves classic "cucina romana" a stone’s throw from the city's former slaughterhouse. The Roman pasta dishes (Carbonara, Amatriciana or Cacio e Pepe) never disappoint while more adventurous diners who eat with reckless abandon should try the traditional Testaccio-style ‘quinto quarto’ offal such as Trippa alla Romana (tripe with tomato and pecorino), Coratella (lamb offal) and Pajata (veal intestine) all to be finished off with their renowned tiramisù. There is also a great selection of Italian wines and in the summer take advantage of the beautiful terrace and outdoor area. Just don't leave the restaurant without checking out the dining room with windows showcasing the ancient roman amphoras dating back thousands of years.
