Rome trattoria that's open on Sundays?

My last night in Rome before I fly back to the states is a Sunday night. Can anyone recommend a great, authentic trattoria that will be open? I was looking at Augustarello, but not sure if they're open. Was also thinking about Ditirambo. Thanks!

  1. I think Checchino is open on Sunday night but not Augustarello. If you search the Italy board for Sunday reccs, you should find some more.

      No, Checchino isn't open on Sundays or Mondays at all. La Campana is open Sunday evening.

        sorry - you are right. I think they used to serve Sunday lunch but that must have been years ago.

    2. I'm not sure I'd put Ditrambo in the category of authentic; it's got a slightly newer take on old recipes.
      Da Bucatino in Testaccio is open Sundays, authentic and, I thought, very good.

        I'll definitely look into Da Bucatino-thanks for the suggestion!

          Is Da Bucatino open Sundays for lunch? And does anyone know whether the Testaccio market is open on Sunday?

            In March we lunched at Da Bucatino on a Sunday but found the market closed. We returned a couple of days later for an enjoyable lunch at Volpetti Piu (where I encountered the mysterious agretti!) then checked out the market, just down the street. Glistening fish and impressive meat selections, as well as all those vegetables.

            1. re: andhollis

              fwiw, volpetti piu is open for sunday lunch but its probably not the relaxing experience you are looking for. Sunday is not the day for food shopping in Testaccio.

            2. re: foodio

              Market is closed Sundays. I had forgotten about Bucatino. I used to go there all the time, but drifted away. They should certainly be open for Sunday lunch.
