Favorite Pizza – I love the pizza at Testaccio. My favorite is the pizza with prosciutto and arugula on top. I also love their desserts
the Tiramisu is to die for!
Bravo Testaccio! – Long Island City, a growing mecca for ambitious chefs, now can boast about being home to what quite possibly is NYC's best showcase for the cuisine of Roma-Lazio. In a subtly decorated, softly lit room, a lovely bar, a wood fired oven and comfortable tables somehow make the most of the somewhat narrow expanse and set the stage for a great meal experience. Outstanding items were the young artichokes, the spinach flan, the oxtail terrine, all pastas and pizzas and (surprise!) a beautifully grilled steak served with caramelized onions and spuds. Well-mixed cocktails, a compact yet wide-ranging menu and an amiable staff combine to deliver a wonderful experience, albeit at quasi-Manhattan price$. The wine list struck us as pricey but that's a nit-pick. Testaccio is worth enjoying.
Great Place – Food was great , not only inexpensive but delicious. The presentation has such a unique style very different from other restaurants. Everything from plates and bowls to glasses bring a different style of comfort to your experience. The atmosphere is very cozy and the lighting and artwork is phenomenal.
