Felice a Testaccio

Top choice trattoria in San Giovanni & Testaccio

This neighbourhood trattoria is renowned for its unswerving dedication to Roman soul food. Though its decor is contemporary, the menu is unrelentingly old school, including dishes such as filled ravioli, fried baccalà (cod), involtino (beef rolls in a tomato sauce) and saltimbocca (veal escalopes with proscuitto and sage). Vegetable sides include seasonal delights such as artichokes, asparagus and puntarelle (a type of chicory).

There's also a far-better-than-average wine list. Though booking well in advance is recommended, we've often had success in scoring a walk-in table.
