Flavio al Velavevodetto

Named by Slow Food founder Carlo Petrini as one of his favourite places to dine in Rome, Flavio al Velavevodetto has earned a cult following among local gastronomes who flock for its traditional, thoughtfully prepared local dishes served at fair prices. Expect all the Roman classics – cacio e pepe, carbonara, offal, and lamb. The breaded and fried lamb chops are out of this world and save room for dessert – the creamy tiramisu is divine. In the summertime, outdoor patios spread over two levels draw families and groups. Inside, the dining rooms display ancient terracotta fragments, an appropriate decor choice considering Flavio al Velavevodetto is built into the city's most historic landfill, a pile of ancient amphorae.
Address: Via di Monte Testaccio, 97, 00153 Roma

  • Truly outstanding...The Althea Inn is not only our favorite of many places we have stayed in Rome, it's the best value.

  • Althea Inn is a special find in Rome. The surprisingly spacious flower-festooned balcony is a treat, but the rest of the facilities are excellent too...

  • Arriving back from a day's sightseeing it felt like a home away from home.

  • Our room was immaculate and peaceful, with the terrace being a perfect place for a late night glass of prosecco under the stars.
