AOL Travel Editor’s Review

The name doesn’t lie: this famous restaurant really has been around for over a century. Located in Testaccio, the Checchino, one of the top Rome restaurants, had a synonymous relationship with the slaughter house that graced the neighborhood (it has since moved to the hinterlands of the city). Many slaughterhouse workers were partly paid in meat—and not just any meat; they would get the “fifth quarter”: the tail, the intestines and stomach, among others—and the restaurants in Testaccio, including Checchino, would offer to cook it for them. Thus, the birth of many classic Roman dishes. Today, you can dine at Checchino and eat those traditional Roman recipes, including pajata—veal intestines with the mother’s milk still inside—and braised oxtail.
