Inspired by the rich culinary scene of its namesake neighborhood in Rome, Testaccio's menu centers around healthy foods cooked in a natural wood burning oven, and a thoughtful selection of Mediterranean and amphora-made wines.
Contrary to beloved sister restaurant Osteria Langhe, which focuses solely on the Piemonte region of Italy, the menu at Testaccio pays homage to a diverse range of cultures that now call this landmark neighborhood home.
Named after the artificial mountain composed of amphorae (clay jars) dating back to antiquity, Testaccio was one of the Roman Empire’s major trade hubs due to its location on the River Tiber, minutes from Trastevere. As a result, this unique area of Rome was introduced to an abundance of culture, flavors, and new cooking techniques from all over the Mediterranean.
Today's modern district has become a foodies Mecca in Rome, with edgier versions of Roman classics drawing in tourists from around the world.
