“Nice food, great prices, well managed - good place to take kids”
Reviewed 10 August 2011

We have eaten here twice now, second time with kids. The other reviews seem quite accurate. The food seems reproducibly good. Portions may seem small by some Portuguese standards. The first time, we shared a pasta dish and a pizza, all for less than 20 euro - very good value for the money. Definitely one of the better (non-Indian) Italian places that I have found here in Lisbon/Cascais area.

They do swift business (both sit down and take-out) and have plenty of staff on hand to take the load; service has been prompt. Seems well managed. I've added it to my "safe" list.

“A little bit of Rome in...Oeiras!”
Reviewed 13 July 2011

We were staying in a hotel in Oeiras and one night we were walking looking for something to eat...a bit different from the usual...we asked and one man told us about a small italian restaurant not very far from where we were: La Vecchia Roma. It was amazing to meet such a lovely place and also unexpected. Nice atmosphere, excellent service and...very good Italian food...not to mention the pizza that was perfect and so similar to the one I ate in Italy last year...I recomend the place: familiar and super quality restaurant!

“A great italian in Oeiras”
Reviewed 20 October 2010

La Vecchia Roma is a cozy italian restaurant with great food. Start with a garlic bread, and don't miss the great sangria with your steak or pizza. I'm not into pasta, but got good comments on it. In the end just indulge yourself with the white chocolat mousse, that is excellent! You get a great value for your money here.

I was in Oeiras and while walking along the street, I met this small restaurant "La Vecchia Roma". I eat one of the best pizza in Lisbon area. The atmosphere was great and the service perfect. The pizza was exaclty the same we use to eat in Italy and it is cooked in a wood owen. Simply perfect. Thank you!

“A bit of Roma in Oerias...what a surprise!”
Reviewed 11 August 2010

It is a small restaurant in Oeiras, close to Lisbon. It is an Italian Restaurant with a nice enviroment and really good food...we ate a carpaccio and homemade lasagne with a Primitivo red wine..not easy to find such lasagne outside Italy...not fancy restaurant but it is one of those restaurant that you would not expect to meet when walking in a small city like Oeiras..worth to be mentioned...thanks.
