    Come here to try Rome's classic pastas, the amatriciana, cacio e pepe, and carbonara. Located in Testaccio, where you'll find plenty of typical Roman fare, Flavio's is a favorite of our users.

    Velavevodetoo!! ("I told you so!!")

    A beautiful restaurant located in the heard of Testaccio, Flavio al Velavevodetto has both outdoor and "underground" seating. Inside, diners can see out into the mound in which the restaurant sits within, a clear view of the ancient earthen vases that create the mound.

    The food and wine here are great. You can order from Rome's trinity of pastas: carbonara, amatriciana and cacio e pepe. Each was made wonderfully.

    This is a suitable restaurant for a casual meal or a date. Wonderful service and a comfortable atmosphere.

    A place where the Romans eat. Very good local food. The staff do not speak much English and don't really cater to tourists.

Description

Seasonal and local ingredients spice up the local dishes at Flavio al Velavevodetto. Start with the house wine and work through each of the pastas of the Roman trinity: carbonara, amatriciana and cacio e pepe. Indoor seating offers a look into the history surrounding the restaurant: earthen vases buried around the mound, remnants of the Neronian fire that burned Ancient Rome (or so says one ... read more
version of the story). Today, all of it simply serves as an elegant backdrop for the cuisine at this Testaccio institution.
