Just git back from this restaurant. We chose out meals and the waitress told us we weren't to have them and we needed to have what she recommended. We argued what we wanted and again she was very push not only about the starter , and main course but also about the wine. She was pushy to the point we... More

Genuine Italian food. All cooked on the spot, so at time you will need to wait a little, but this guarantees very good quality. The owner is keen about healthy options, so you can have pizzas without gluten and fresh vegs rather then chips. All staff is very friendly and welcoming. good selection of Italian wines and liquores

Great little intimate spot. Served a variety of tapas dishes that were above average in quality. More like mini meals.

Disappointing meal after reading reviews/ratings on Trip Advisor. Started off bad when their Italian mussels were unavailable, especially considering that I've routinely seen them at the market this week for less than 3 euros a kilo and we arrived early in the night. Then they provided fresh bread with a pink spread, instead of butter or olive oil. The spread... More

Looking for a quick meal during the interval of Steinway's Jazz and Blues club's early Tuesday night performance (highly recommended) we walked across Carrer del Mar and enjoyed salad and beautifully prepared pasta washed down with a nice white. Near authentic Italian this could be a regular visit on a Tuesday evening.

we visited La Vecchia Roma because it advertised gluten free pizzas, pastas and bread and my son has coeliac disease. The food was excellent and my son really enjoyed being able to eat the same as us (although his was obviously gluten free) and didn't feel left out. We tried his bread and pizza and it was lovely. The only... More

We were the only visitors on a September night there which was a pity as the place is really nice. I was totally happy with my salad and pasta, my friends a bit less so. But this is definitely a good place for those missing Italian food in Spain

Having read all the good reviews about this place, we decided to go for a visit and were not disappointed at all. The whole experience was wonderful. The place itself is small and quite cosy holding about 40 people. The Romanina waitress who has been there for 3 and a half years was very pleasant, although there was no sight... More
