Restaurants in Centro Storico
Formal and wood-paneled in the manner of Italy’s grand old coffee bars, and equipped with Wi-Fi in the style of the new, this is a standout in a city of excellent but fairly identical cafés.
Inexpensive, casual pizzerie are all over the city (and an integral eating experience on any trip to Rome), but few are as much fun as this one. Maybe it’s the adorable and efficient waiters, or the giddily cheap tabs, but it always seems like a holiday at La Montecarlo.
Anyone weary from traipsing the cobblestones in the Centro Storico will love this innovative and relaxed bilevel restaurant, where you can drop in for a breather and a bite (and AC) almost any time of day.
One of the most delicious aspects of Italian cooking is an expertly prepared Mediterranean seafood meal, and this is the best place in Rome to have one.
With a history dating back into the 19th century, Antico Caffè della Pace has long been a favored and trendy haunt with its Art Deco-style interior and white marble tables.
