Checco dello Scapicollo is one of Rome‘s the most famous restaurants; managed by the Testa family, the restaurant is famed for its extraordinary Roman cuisine and in summer guests can relax and have dinner in the beautiful garden, thus nurturing the illusion of being in the country.
Their exquisite menu includes, of course, international dishes, but if I were you, I would rather focus on dishes from traditional Roman cuisine.
Every day the Testa family puts on a feast of delicious roast lamb chops, exquisite ham and, of course, the famous bucatini all’amatriciana which has come to epitomise the essence of the cuisine of Rome.
The only thing I found a bit disappointing was the apple sorbet we had at end of our dinner, but on the whole it was a superb meal and considering the international fame the restaurant has gained over these last few years, we spend next to nothing.
