It’s easy to walk by this Rome restaurant on a narrow cobbled alleyway in the charming slightly-off-the-tourist-radar neighborhood Monti. But that would be a mistake. Not only is Vecchia Roma, or “Old Rome,” as the name translates, one of the most affordable restaurants in the city, the quality of the classic Roman dishes are good. Spaghetti carbonara, for example, is done just right: the eggs not too runny or too cooked. Pizzas are super thin with appropriately tangy tomato sauce. The interior, crammed with tables (as well as incongruous art on the walls), fills up quickly so be prepared to wait for this top Rome restaurant.
