Checchino is situated at Monte Testaccio, a hill made up of the broken pieces of millions of clay wine containers from Roman days. This fact was confirmed when cellars were dug into the hill. The food is typical of simple Roman cooking. In days gone by, the butchers ("vaccinari") would gather here to enjoy oxtail stew. It became known as "coda alla vaccinara". It is still on the menu. Run by the fifth generation of the same family.
