Better Rome location - Celio or Testaccio?

jen kalb | Aug 13, 2012 02:11 PM

Trying to make a final decision on where to rent in Rome for an upcoming visit. I have a husband who tends not to like to go out at night for dinner or stay out late, so it has to be easy to get him out of the house - Celio has the upperhand for other reasons so Im wondering - are there actually worthwhile places to eat out in that area? Weve been to Luzzi, Naumachia - they dont stack up. We liked Pizzeria Forum but I doubt any chowhounds in the area much agree... Nerone is close ...what else is reasonably close and worth a visit? Il Bocconcino? Alchemilla? Quaranta? or will we have to get on a bus/tram or walk over to Monti?

Our rental in Testaccio would be all the way down by the lungotevere. Are there any worthwhile choices in that immediate area or across the river in Portuense/trastevere? La Fucina?
