Not traditional food but on average food anyway. The starter was self served, good and wide, and the price/quality ratio acceptable

A bit remote from the very crowded restaurants and cafes of the hisoric center of Roma, this place is 10 minutes walk from Via Veneto or pizza Republica. Decoration is almost not existing. However the food is good, prices are reasonable and service is very efficient and pleasant

If we have to pick one restaurant in Rome that is our favorite it would be La Lampada. We have been going there since 2004 and the same people still work there. Not only is the food very good but the staff is probably the nicest group of people we have met in Rome. They have one of the best `antipasti' bars that we have seen. Salvatore and Giaccomo are the owners and the restaurant is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. There is not one dish we have had there that we have not liked - but - our favorites are pasta with funghi porcini (mushrooms) and penne arriabiata (spicy tomato sauce). Tuesday and Friday are fresh fish days and the Spigola (sea bass) here is very good. The soups there are very big and are always excellent. The cicoria ripasada that is a side dish is special and the roasted potatoes are very good. For desert, make sure you get the Panna Cotta with frutti di bosco - a cooked cream desert. Although we have never had meat there, those that have say they do meat very well. As in almost every restaurant in Rome you get a basket of bread whether you want it or not and getting a check can be a long procedure. The Italians think that you want to spend the night at your table - that is just the way it is done there. If you come from a place where the game is 'table turnover', that is, get people in and out quickly you, you have to adjust to the Italian way.

For those of you that are Italian and had Sunday dinner at your grandmothers, you'll love this place. The food was excellent! I had pasta with a meat ragu with lots of great bread. My husband ordered the chicken that came with the best potatoes ever. And my cousin ordered sea bass that was filleted at the table. Everything was so fresh and delicious.
I highly recommend this place.
