Trattoria da Bucatino

Roman in San Giovanni & Testaccio

This neighbourhood trattoria is the sort of place that's busy on a wet Wednesday lunch in November. It's far from refined with its dated decor and brusque service, but the typical Roman food hits the mark – try its trademark bucatini all’amatriciana (pasta with tomato, pancetta and chilli peppers) – and helpings are generous.
