Restaurants in Rome
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.
Located on the first floor of the 16th-century palace of Beatrice Cenci at the edge of the old Jewish ghetto, this restaurant has a ghostly history.
Along the rustic Appian Way, the Sora Rosa restaurant—which has called itself an "oasis of flavor" since 1900—provides a respite from the bustle of Rome.
Located on a quiet side street in the Monti district, La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali (the Tavern of the Imperial Forum) is an unassuming, family-run restaurant just five minutes from the eponymous forum.
This Monti wine bar's motto liberate la gola (free your tastebuds) is reflected in its expansive selection of around 500 labels plus 70 Italian craft beers.
Soccer players, Hollywood stars, famous artists, and locals from the neighborhood all line up outside Pizzeria da Baffetto to wait patiently for a table to open up in the crammed rooms of one of Rome's most stalwart traditional pizzerie: open only at dinner (only tourists eat pizza at lunch), wit
Located in the plaza and bustling open-air market of the same name, Il Forno Campo de' Fiori specializes in piazza bianca, a flatbread sprinkled with sea salt and doused in extra-virgin olive oil.
Among the regulars at this friendly stalwart of cucina Romana, you’ll find gussied-up old ladies alongside rockers in jeans and Kiss tour shirts—all of whom trust Il Matriciano to bring them unfussy versions of their favorite classic Roman country dishes.
