Children, parents and grandparents all well fed and happy

10 of us, all with different requirements: old fashioned staff who coped brilliantly with the chaos. Lovely food: the best carbonara and light tasty granita, a perfect family Sunday lunch

After walking around Rome, what seemed to be the boss or manager, wouldn't even let my wife and I sit down to enjoy a probably very expensive bottle of water. Not very friendly having mind that there were several empty tables. A great contrast to Positano's openness which we had enjoyed until this morning.

When you have time and money, and want a certain level of standing, it could be a good choice, but I think it remains too expensive and if you look for the most demanding food quality on price ratio, you better look somewhere else.

Best pasta EVER. Just Youtube: vecchia roma amatricciana, and you'll have no choice but go. Tip: make a reservation a day before, because it's always full.

We come here each time we are in Rome because we enjoy the high quality food. This time was no exception. The carcioffo.alla giudea (deep fried artichoke), roasted pepper stuffed with ham, seafood salad, incredibly lightly battered courgette flowers etc. that we had as part of our selection from the antipasto buffet were all divine. Our fish dishes for mains... More

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Rome. In fact we have been there 3 times over the past 16 years. We tried another time 6 years ago only to discover they are closed on Wednesdays, the only day we were in Rome on that trip. The food is supurb, but not inexpensive. In our opinion it is well...

We visited this restaurant several times during our stay in Rome- for lunch and dinner. The food was always excellent, as well as the service. Vecchia Roma has the most delicious buffet of antipasti- vegetables and fish- a feast for the eye and the mouth. The service is most welcoming- friendly and professional. The food is fresh and you get... More

We've been at the Vecchia Roma as a family. The first impression was really very good, while we were taken to our table by the waiter. We passed through very nice rooms with nice frescos on the walls, and nice (and soft) music around. Our own room was extremely nice and comfortable. We tasted three pasta dishes (I had some... More

The food at this restaurant is not that good. Some dishes are ok, but some really do not appeal. It is beautiful inside dining, but be prepared to overpay. We felt taken advantage of when they charged a cover/pane charge of 4 euro plus an automatic service charge. Because it was across the street, we gave them 2 tries. We... More

This was one of the best meals I had on my most recent visit to Rome. I am a vegan and my two companions were complete omnivores, and we all came away fully satisfied. My first impression was of a beautifully maintained building full of charm and character, as well as an impressive array of antipasto on walking through the... More

Staying in Ghetto

Neighborhood Profile
Ghetto
The mini-neigborhood Ghetto holds tight to its reputation as a stand-alone area thanks to its nearly 300-year history as the home to Rome’s Jewish community. Times changed in the 20th century, but the tiny area still retains its mix of tradition, community, and history. Ancient and medieval architectural design frames apartments, bakeries, shops, and restaurants. Friends and families are the pulse of the neighborhood, keeping company on the Via del Portico d’Ottavia. The Ghetto observes the traditional Jewish Shabbat: businesses close from Friday sundown to Saturday sundown.
