Food was really good and quick. Service was excellent. Friendly. It really makes a difference to go a few blocks off the tourist trek. I went on my own, went mozzarella cheese balls and calzone and was in and out inside an hour (arrived at 7:30pm) Highly recommend

This restaurant is a true pearl. There are no fancy feelings, and the food arrives in large size portions. The service is the friendly and welcoming, the atmosphere happy, and the price range is for everyone. If I am going to visit Rome again, I am definately visiting Trattoria Vecchia Roma again.

We tried to get in here on a Tuesday night with no reservation. No joy so made a booking for the Thursday night. The restaurant was very busy which gave it a vibrant atmosphere. The waiters were very friendly and the place had a very lively buzz. We ordered the bruchetta and the speciality pasta. The food was good and... More

we had dinner twice and lunch once. Book for dinner! We were lucky and on our first occasion they found us a table but we did book in advance for second time for dinner. Lunch didn't require a booking on the day and time we went. From the street you only see the door of this restaurant but once you... More

This place was recommended by my host where I stayed at (Estalla Magica) while I'm in Rome last September. Dropped by not knowing that you should call for a table/reservation, good thing it was still early-7pm for European dinner and they were able to seat me in enjoy their meal. Went here twice and had their pasta dishes and antispati.... More

Typical , traditional roman trattoria . Love the staff , it's more if a family. Food I always good , you won't leave unsatisfied. But the must have is the typical local dish "Amatriciana " it is probably the best of Rome. The house wine is very good too. And the service is fast. Don't go expecting a high end... More

The food here was the best we had in rome. Amazing pizza and pasta. Very cheap also compared to others. Because it's such good food the place is very busy so the service is slow, but the staff are very charming. This place is full of locals which can only be a good sign. Be sure to be clear if...

Trattoria Vecchia Roma presents a lovely atmosphere. It seems to be a family business for many years; the stairs of the entrance guides you to an underground restaurant. This 'style' may refer to old house construction in the past since, with time, the streets get built higher. Nonetheless, the waiters are very welcoming and friendly especially ours who is from...
