Checchino dal 1887 Restaurant Review

: A Roman institution built into Monte Testaccio, Checchino dal 1887 is most renowned for its offal items known as quinto quarto. In the summer, reserve a table outside and watch the evening parade while enjoying classic Roman plates such as pasta al cacio e pepe or the coda all vaccinara. The wine cellar is formed right into the hill of discarded terracotta and boasts a notable selection of Italian wines, including those from much older vintages that pair well with the heavy dishes. Service from waiters in pressed suits is not only hospitable but also adds to the personality of the place. Be sure to reserve on the weekends.
