Having hung up his boots, former rugby player Angelo has been at the helm of his neighbourhood trattoria since 1989. Nowadays it’s a hugely popular spot – making a reservation a must – with paper cloths on solid wooden tables and photos of Angelo’s sporting heroes on the walls. There’s a sociable atmosphere and a menu that offers robust versions of Roman favourites like tonnarelli cacio e pepe (pasta with spicy cheese and pepper), tripe and braised oxtail. In the evening there’s a set menu only.
