Antica Taverna: Good basic food
Updated July 2012, original review written March 2008.
This ristorante/pizzeria is a good find: nothing special inside, just checked tablecloths and a pleasant atmosphere. It's used by locals (it gets busy after about 8pm), has good pizza cooked in a proper oven, a range of other dishes on offer and reasonable prices.
In 2008 my companion and I would have eaten there more than once if we'd stayed longer. It doesn't look anything special from the outside, but the service was friendly and helpful, the food was both well-cooked and well-priced and the house wine eminently drinkable.
Anywhere that is used by local people is worth investigating and, if you are stayng in the Termini area, this one is well worth seeking out. In 2012 it was busy with customers every night, and that speaks for itself.
Favorite Dish: All the pizzas are good: very thin bases (as they should have).

good roman food (we had pizza and pasta), decent ambience, cute ristorante tucked into a corner near pizzeria da baffeto. was nice to find at least one place not dominated by tourists! also, they didn't try to cheat us like some other places we went to :( prices were in the 7-10 euro range (at the time this was 10-15 USD) for pizzas, pastas, or secondi (entrees).
Favorite Dish: I had a lamb secondi, which was very flavorful but a little lacking in meatiness. However, I also had the margherita pizza, which was delicious! overall, any restaurant that does cheese pizza that much better than in the States, can't be that bad...
