Restaurants in Rome

Featured in the 2010 movie Eat Pray Love, Santa Lucia’s dining terrace is a quiet, romantic setting behind Piazza Navona. Surrounded by a stone and ironwork wall, the terrace is shaded by trees and white umbrellas and is heated during cooler months.

Checchino is a traditional Roman restaurant originally opened in 1887 by the Mariani family.

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.

In 2002, the Roscioli family transformed their deli into a bakery, restaurant, and wine bar, where they serve 450 different kinds of cheeses, more than 100 different kinds of cured meats, and more than 1,000 labels of wine.

Attached to the Auditorium Parco della Musica — one of Italy’s most popular performance venues — is ReD Restaurant and Design. The color red can be seen throughout the dining room on chairs, candles, and curtains, highlighting fixtures from famous designers like Victoria and Albert.

With exposed brick arches, white-washed stucco walls, and a polished wood floor, Risto Nobel has an ambience that's nce enough for a date night, but casual enough for dinner with friends.

Tre Scalini offers a decadent chocolate dessert in one of the most picteresque plazas 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.
