Restaurants in Rome

Attached to a funky business hotel in the once-gritty, gradually gentrifying, nightclub-rich Ostiense area, this ambitious spot has emerged as one of the most enjoyable modern dining experiences in Rome.

The Pigneto district near Termini station has become the destination for hipsters, and this trattoria fits right in. Opened in 1988, it’s run by owner and chef Dario Santilli.

This venue is closed.

Three blocks from the Tevere River, this Roman-centric restaurant's decor evokes the 1970’s. Exposed wooden beams are situated overhead, while yellow tiles line the floor, matching the yellow tablecloths and napkins.

Located in the T1 Arrivals gate at Leonardo da Vinci – Fiumicino Airport in Rome, this bakery is a popular pre-flight stop for breakfast or an afternoon snack. Traditional bread and pastries items are crafted in an open air kitchen, as well as savory options.

A family-run trattoria with a slightly lived-in look (worn tile floors and wood-paneled wainscoting), Settimio all-Arancio near via del Corso and the Spanish Steps serves up classic Roman cuisine with an emphasis on grilled meat and fish and seasonal produce.

Set in the column-lined courtyard of the 16th-century Palazzo Medici Lante della Rovere, not far from the Pantheon, this is one of Rome’s oldest enoteche (wine store).

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.

Not far from the Pantheon and Piazza Navona, this quiet restaurant in Old Rome is known for its regional Sicilian cuisine. Filling up two stories in a 17th century palace, Trattoria's main floor is a casual bar serving drinks and a limited menu. The second floor boasts an open kitchen.
