Restaurants in Rome

Sitting in the capital city, Rome restaurants reflects the best regional cuisines of Italy—northern, Sicilian, Florentine, Tuscan—in other words, plenty of pasta, fresh meat, seafood and lots of herbs. Try the finest Italian fare at some of the best restaurants in Rome.

Agata e Romeo, a husband-and-wife restaurant in Rome, does upscale takes on Roman classics. Highlights include rabbit croquettes; creatively rendered salt cod and shrimp wrapped in fried noodles. Try the greatest pizza bianca in Rome at Il Forno Roscioli, a traditional family bakery near the Campo de' Fiori market. Baked in an 1824 oven, the slim slabs of pizza dough have a springy crumb and a bubbly top that's moistened with olive oil and speckled with grains of coarse salt. Leave room for the apple-packed torta de mele and rustic pane di Lariano studded with raisins and walnuts. Traditional meets chic at Dal Bolognese. This Rome restaurant is where the beautiful people convene for rich classics such as lasagna verde or Bolognese veal cutlets. Here’s a case where calling for a reservation backfires: you’ll typically do better at getting a table if you just show up after 8.
