We were lucky to get a table as they said we would have to wait 1 hour, but a table cancelled and we were seated. The service wasn't too bad and the wine was very cheap and very drinkable. The food was very cheap, but I was let down by the quality. We ordered calzone and the pasta special with... More

Very good restaurant. Food is really good and the clients are basically Italian. If you are not a person who usually eat a lot and I mean kind of 3 times in one meal, ask only for 1 plate. I tried the suggested menu, and I had to quit in the first plate. Recommended and I will be back one... More

This is the place where I ate the best pasta ever and for the cheaper price. It is worth the reservation in advance.

My husband, 12 year old daughter and I dined here last month during our trip to Rome. This restaurant was around the block from our hotel (Napolean Hotel), a few blocks from the train station. After having been disappointed at our previous three dining choices, Trattoria Vecchia Roma was a breath of fresh air in this hot, smelly city in... More

We arrived in Rome for our honeymoon late in the evening after a long day of travelling and this restaurant was recommended to us by the hotel concierge. Really friendly staff and the food was beautiful- pizzas and bruschetta. The house wine was also really good quality and all very reasonably priced. We returned a couple of days later and... More

Although we waited about an hour to get a table it was well worth it!! The staff were extremely attentive and accommodating. They recommended the tomato, bacon and vodka pasta special and although the portions were enormous, it was delicious by far the best pasta dish eaten whilst in Rome. We also had a sausgae pizza here which was a... More

We are here on our last night in Rome, by chance, and wish we had found it sooner. Lots of locals seem to dine here, which is always a good sign. Very pleasant waiter, more than ok to make a special (not on the menu) pizza, very efficient service, and the final bill was a very pleasant surprise. Don't be... More

Extremely disappointing last dinner in Rome. My partner and I had high hopes as the restaurant seemed to be highly rated. To start we had two different types of Bruschetta both were horrible, worst we have had in Rome, in fact anywhere we have been in Italy. Then my partner had a pizza toppings were a little on the low... More
