Great pizzas and spaghettis at great prices, love the way they prepare the spaghetti over a big block of cheese. Very friendly service as well.

Had to reserve a table here as when we dropped in they had no space, it's very busy with locals and tourists so you do need to book. Food was tasty and good portion sizes, happy to 'build your own' pizza in terms of picking toppings. Forgot to get one of the drinks we ordered. Service was slow as the... More

What a great find. Pizza & pasta that was the best we had found in Italy wih friendly and fun staff and reasonable prices. Unique position. A great reason to return to Rome.

Great range of really reasonably priced pizzas. We went for the margherita and ai funghi, both delicious and fresh with crispy bases. Really friendly staff and excellent service, free limoncello after lunch! Drinks expensive otherwise (2 euro for water) but only to be expected in Rome. Bring your own and you're set. Fab atmosphere and free WiFi is an added... More

Unfortunately it seemed the air conditioning was not working when we went to the restaurant at lunch time. It was extremely hot and uncomfortable. We had the stuffed olives which were enjoyable. But I was dismayed when my carbonara came out - it was like pasta with a pile of scrambled eggs mixed through it. It was truly awful. My... More

Such a great experience. It's definitely best to go with a reservation, we saw many get turned away because they didn't. It seems constantly busy. We didn't have a reservation but me and my partner managed to strike lucky. The service is crazy, Italian waiters shouting and yelling and rushing. It's prompt and good. The atmosphere is far from romantic... More

We arrived in Rome around lunchtime and searched the internet for a restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. Well this one certainly didn't disappoint. We walked down the stairs to find a lovely and lively space filled with tourists and locals. The menu is substantial with something for everyone. I'd recommend the their speciality of the house - Spaghetti... More

On our first night in Rome, (first night of our honeymoon!), we did a quick search for restaurants within walking distance from our hotel and came across Trattoria Vecchia Roma. We'd made a reservation and were seated immediately by a friendly, energetic waiter - and we took his lead on what to order. The meal was incredible; we had the... More

We ate here on the last night of our two-week European trip and we clearly saved the best for last. We tried to eat here the night before, but the restaurant was full at 20:30 and we were told it would be 22:00 before we could be seated. We ended up eating at another local restaurant - which had no... More
