Checchino dal 1887

30 Via di Monte Testaccio
Rome , Italy http://www.checchino-dal-1887.com/

Checchino is a traditional Roman restaurant originally opened in 1887 by the Mariani family. Sensing an opportunity, they started the venue as way to feed workers from the slaughterhouse that once existed next door, which is apropos as braised oxtail and veal saltimbocca represent the signature dishes. Since then, the building has been declared a monument among the Association of Historical Places of Italy and Europe. Under a cylindrical roof, the dining room is small but intimate with marble countertops, white tablecloths, and old photographs of the city.
