Amongst a line of like minded folks before it even opened, We were told they could seat us as long as we were done by 8:30 as... More

So nice to find a reasonably priced place in the centre of town!! Even better that the service is snappy and the food is good. We both had pasta dishes, they were fresh and tasty and good. There are many locals eating here, which indicates good food and good value. I would not disagree. On a cold day, we left... More

Owning a business, I've heard that to succeed, you need 2 of 3: convenience, value, quality. Well, I would say this establishment has all 3. Great food, great value and awesome service. This is a family run restaurant where the locals go. Unpretentious, and authentic. We ordered pasta, wine, and secondi. All were great. Calamari tender and not chewy. Bread... More

This is a real roman reastaurant, the kind of place where you can imagine Monica Vitti enter and asks for "un quartino de rosso", and that exactly what I asked for. I have eaten artichoke "alla romana", puntarelle salad wiyh a special dressing "della casa" and fried anchovies (tasty, only a little bit gummy). And the bill was really unexpensive!

This Vecchia Roma restaurants is good enough for tourists but honestly it is just average compared to the level of the roman restaurants. It is ok but not really special. Nice location in a good neiborhood. Waiter was kind.

Anyhow, pasta was awesome, wine was great... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighbourhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighbourhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
