La Botticella

Trattoria in Trastevere & Gianicolo

On a quiet backstreet, La Botticella offers pure Roman cooking, outside under the lines of flapping washing or inside in the picture-lined salon. Menu stalwarts include tripe and rigatoni alla paiata (pasta with calf’s intestines), but there are less hardcore dishes, such as an excellent spaghetti all’amatriciana (pasta with a spicy tomato sauce, pecorino and cured pork). Note vine-covered facade.
