We visited Antica Roma a few weeks ago and not only was the service 1st class but so was the food. I happen to mention to the staff that we are off to Rome in October and they told us places to visit.

Not sure if they have a set Sunday menu as we have always chosen from the main menu, which is excellent. We know they do takeaways, so they may well have a set menu. It's probably best to give them a call or look on their... More
