One of the most beautiful locations in Rome, not spectacular but charming setting. Old fashioned, very welcoming. Good variety of food which is overall of a high standard. However, it is expensive, 2 adults and 2 teenagers 160 euros but we have eaten here several times so we think it is worth it for a special night out. Also beware,... More

Very good food and nice service, a famous anti pasta buffet and fine outdoor seating in a charming piazza .a little off the tourist path but near enough to historic sites like forum romanum ,the pallatin , bocca de la verita , the ghetto a.s.o in winter or in rare bad weather there are beautiful indoor places - rooms with...

Had a wonderful meal although it was not our first choice. Jew Ish style artichoke which is one of our favorites was a. Bit too salty but the pasta dishes made up for it. The pasta Cabonara was probably the best I have ever had & my wife had a simple pasta also olio whihich was done to perfection. Tis... More

Just had lunch at this pretty, slightly off the beaten path restaurant. Nice waiter, very good pistachio risotto, so-so misto fritto, but prices are high and when we got the bill and saw the 8 euro cover and bread charge for the two of us, we were shocked. First the most we've paid for bread for two is 4 euros... More

This enjoyable restaurant lies conveniently close to both the Capitolium and the Ghetto in Rome, just a short walk away from Piazza Venezia. The food is delicious and the service very friendly, and even the prices are reasonable. Have visited the place four times and never been disappointed. If you vist Rome, try this one out :D

We selected the Vecchia Roma for its nice outdoor seating and high ratings in Trip Advisor and Fodor's. Unfortunately rather unfriendly waiters didn't leave us with the "special place" feeling one would expect in this environment and for that price. Only after the starter I was told my choice for main dish (seafood in brooth) was no longer available. I... More

From the name I thought it would be a tourist trap but it's quite the opposite. It's a rather posh restaurant for when you want to treat yourself. My friend who is a local chose it, and I was delighted to have discovered it. The location is central but in a tiny piazza so it was quiet while having the... More

Recommended by Mok'house staff, this restaurant was such fun. Full and lively (worth booking if you have time), set down in a basement area that is obviously very popular with the locals. 2 sittings but it fills up quickly. Great local food and scrumptious pizzas. Grilled calamari was delicious.

We enjoyed this restaurant with its set of smallish linked rooms and fresco decorations. (Probably people use the terrace on the piazza if the weather is better.) We allowed ourselves to go with the flow and be led by the helpful and friendly waiter and were not disappointed with the selections or the prices.
