Vecchia Roma

Pizza in Monti, Esquilino & San Lorenzo

It's not at all unusual to see groups of locals queuing outside the door to this century-old basement favourite – the rock-bottom prices, convivial atmosphere and tasty food ensure that it is usually full to the gills. The pizzas are good, but the standout dishes are the flambé pastas – opt for the spaghetti alla parmigiana or the bucatini all'amatriciana. Cash only.
