Testaccio is a soulful Italian restaurant and wine bar located in the vibrant Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. Our intimate 75 seat dining room and classic al fresco patio space set the stage for Roman-style cuisine and curated beverage offerings.
An expert on Italian wine, Owner Aldo Zaninotto (Osteria Langhe) was inspired after visiting the area and discovering its melting pot of characteristics expressed through flavors, food, cooking techniques and art. Over a series of subsequent trips, Zaninotto began to notice many similarities to Logan Square, another historically significant artistic community within Chicago, and set out to recreate back home the same bustling and welcoming family-run eatery like those found walking the streets of Testaccio.
After appointing Chef Jacob Solomon (NoMi, Lettuce Entertain You, The Peninsula Chicago) as executive chef, his daughter Ariana Zaninotto to oversee operations and Osteria Langhe’s Ashley Akers for beverage direction, Testaccio soft-launched in the summer of 2020.
