Restaurant Reviews

Situated in the heart of Old Rome near the Santa Maria di Maggiore Church lies one of the oldest pubs in the Eternal City. Sick of pizza and pasta? The 'Old Marconi' is not only famous for serving up some good ol' fashioned pub grub with that pint of Guiness, but you can also try their hearty Irish breakfast served all day long here. The pub also features some Italian dishes and specializes in Austrian fare and Anglo-Irish cuisine as well. If you're looking for a true gastropub that offers a full lunch and dinner menu with plates like tender lamb roasted skewers, leek potato soup with croutons or simply a nice a juicy hamburger, you've come to the right spot!.” USA Today -

Situated Between Santa Prassada and St. Maria Maggiore, this is a solid choice to come back to Earth for lunch....The walls are covered with 1930 to 1950 memorabilia, to be observed with nostalgia if tou go back that long.....The food consists of solid fare with huge salads and also our usual hamburger with soft drinks or harder ones for non-drivers. The Hard Times menus are good value for money. No pretentions or fancy extras. Recommended for an relaxed and honest lunch.” Tripadvisor

Our group of 5 had lunch at the Old Marconi. We were graciously greeted by Constantino. The lunch was prepared by Ruben who prepared a great meal of Hard Times Meals. We highly recommend this restaurant!Tripadvisor

Like all tourists we wandered looking for a back street bar full of locals, we found it. As i walked by i saw a 'huge' plate of anti-pasta in the waiters hand, " i want that" i said. We stayed in Rome for 5 nights last summer, we ate every night at this bar, it was so good. Micci the young waitress was lovely, as were all the staff. Food exceptional and not expensive. Beer and wine was excellent. I helped drink them out of Ammeretto!! When we return to Rome we will return here.Tripadvisor

I really enjoy passing by here after an urban hike together with my groups and everyone always enjoys it very much. Highly recommended!Sal, from Nature of Sal
