Whenever my husband and I are in Rome, we try to make time to revisit this delightful restaurant. We first found it in about 2000 and loved it on sight. The wonderful antipasto laid out on the table inside was the first thing that grabbed...More

This is pure, simple, presentation of Italian ingredients. I had the broccoli pasta and the fried artichoke. They were both cooked with great precision. The presentation was lovely as well. I arrived at 2:15 and while the service was impeccable, we were rushed. It regrettably...More

Stumbled upon this place after a long day of sightseeing. Simple dishes done exceptionally well. I don't normally go for pasta but new that I had to have some in Rome. So glad i did here as it was absolutely exceptional.

We found this place just by walking by. Price level is roughly double than normal. We paid approx. 80€ as a couple sharing a starter, main dish and an espresso each. After trying out different food in Rome from street snacks to a Michelin star...More

I first ate at this restaurant, finding it by chance, last June and had superb, fresh Italian food in a delightful setting in the piazza. This trip was on a miserable wet day, with a Roman friend as my guest. She's quite discerning and was...More

Located in a quiet square off the tourist track. Upscale white tablecloth restaurant. On the expensive side but they are happy to let you look at a menu before you sit down so there shouldn't be any surprises (except perhaps the €4 pp cover charge)....More

A late lunch after a long morning see the ancient sites. Vecchia Roma is in a small Piazza near the Capitoline Hill. We sat outside in the late summer sun, eating great food and drinking chilled Frascati and do have dessert-they are to die for...More

The mini-neigbourhood 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

When we were there, one of the people sitting next to us was in a wheel chair. Now we sat outside but, presumably, she may have wished to use the toilet inside. We have also eaten inside and I don't recall having to go... More
