    I had the most amazing experience at Hostaria Antica Roma. The service was amazing and the food was so delicious. Best food I’ve had in Rome. It is out of the way so a taxi is needed but it’s worth it. The food is reasonably price for the quality you receive. You can tell they love their guests and I was spoilt. It was in a beautiful setting so good be quite romantic for couples. I was solo but still had a lovely time by myself. Once again the service was the best I have ever had. I will be returning.

    Paolo was great as was his family! We arrived early before the restaurant opened and they accomodated us with a table to wait and drinks. The meal was great and the conversations with Paolo were even better. Great atmosphere and scenario. I highly recommend this restaurant!

    1,000x worth the short taxi ride from downtown Rome to this amazing little restaurant in a garden/ruins. I’m not over exaggerating and I haven’t left reviews for any of the other restaurants we went to our whole trip. This was the best restaurant we have gone to in Italy, not just Rome. I’m telling you the lasagna was AMAZING. Honestly it was all good. Paolo was so kind and so FUN! After eating there tonight we will be changing our plans and will be back tomorrow for sure!

    This is a very special restaurant. Do yourself a favor and head outside Rome and discover this special area along the Appian Way. Paolo is a wonderful host and will entertain you with stories, history and explanation of the restaurants mission and charm. The lasagna is the best I ever had. If you are lucky enough, Paolo will treat you to his garlic spread which should be sold at Whole Foods! We will return every trip!

    This is a family run business. Paolo the host was amazing! He made us feel very welcomed and was incredibly hospitable. The restaurant itself is beautiful, and the food was delicous. Will definitely be returning my next trip to Rome. Best place we've dined at in Italy so far!

    We dined at this restaurant with our kids. It was an amazing an experience. The food was delicious, with recipes that were 2000 yrs old. We felt like we were experiencing the history of Rome. Our waiter/owner was also wonderful. He shared stories with us and engaged, which made the experience even more special.

    The highlight of our trip! Food was amazing. Paulo the owner was friendly and made us feel like family. We were here on our last trip to Rome, excited to return and every bit as wonderful as we remembered. Must try the garlic cheese and the “ancient” dishes. Best Triamisu.

    Paolo was simply the best host! He regaled us with stories about the history of the place and made us feel so welcome in his beautiful restaurant. The food is unique and amazingly delicious - some of Paolo's recipes are 2000 years old and made me feel like I was born 2000 years too late. Best dinner we had in Rome by far!

    This was one of the most exquisite meals we’ve ever enjoyed made all the more special by the fantastic service and unique setting among ancient Roman ruins. The appetizers and pasta dishes were delicious, especially the cheeses and mushrooms. Paolo regaled us with instructive and funny anecdotes about the dishes prepared for us. It was all top notch, topped off by the best tiramisu I’ve ever tasted. The meal was affordable and left a memory that will last a lifetime. We highly recommend it. Thank you Paolo!

    Excellent location, food and service! Away from the tourist traps in town, along the ancient route, the appian way, this restaurant should be your top priority if you’re in Rome to experience the real Roman food and service! The owners were very accommodating and made beautiful arrangement on request, for my wife’s birthday. Couldn’t have asked for anything better.
