Where to eat near Roma Termini station
Trattoria Vecchia Roma £
Come to Trattoria Vecchia Roma hungry, a historic, traditional Roman restaurant which has been open since 1916. It has an extensive menu of pastas, pizzas and delicious Italian classics, but the highlight of any visit is the Parmigiana flambè – pasta flambeed in a giant Parmesan wheel. Choose from either bucatini amatriciana flambè or spaghetti parmigiana flambè, all done table side for that added wow factor.
Trattoria Monti ££
Trattoria Monti is a restaurant that just happens to be near the train station, not a restaurant with that intention. It’s actually one of the best restaurants in Rome, family owned and fun by two brothers specialising in cuisine from the Le Marche region of eastern Italy. Seated in a classic, intimate trattoria guests can dine on giant ravioli and zucchini flan, along with classic Roman dishes.
