AOL Travel Editor’s Review

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.

  This place opens at 7 sharp and don't bother showing up earlier because the shopping in this area is downright depressing compared to what you will find in other neighborhoods. They let us in 10 minutes early (to get us our of the cold and away from a group of rather agressive and sad beggars who relieved us of $14 US) -an we really appreciated it! Atmosphere was a 10/10 - easily a favorite and the food was a solid 8/10. The penne arrabiata was delightfully spicy and the wine was perfect and cheap and great! Service here was great too....   Read More
