Description
This restaurant lays inside a building which was an ancient Roman sepulchre. It was turned to a local (taberna) for the comfort of travellers, who walked on "Via Appia Antica", and their horses. It had became a restaurant since 1926, this beautiful place offers traditional roman food and still more. In fact it's possible to taste characteristic foods of the eternal city accompanying the menu with a good wine. Hostaria "Da Franca" is open at lunch from Monday to Friday and every evening (previous booking) for dinners, conferences and private events for groups of minimum ten people. Price between 10 € - 35 €.
