Rome

Al Moro

13 Vicolo delle Bollette
behind the Trevi Fountain
Rome, 00187, Italy
TEL: 39-06-678-3495

Along one of the less traveled side streets near the Trevi Fountain, Al Moro was a 1970’s hotbed for dining Italian filmmakers like Federico Fellini. Opened by Moro in 1929, the eponymous restaurant is now operated by his son Franco, serving the same traditional Roman cuisine in a mostly unchanged dining room. The typically decorated space of Italian posters and artwork, hardwood floors, and bottles of wine on shelves, is narrow and bright. Local residents, seasoned tourists, and celebrities like Ellen Degeneres enjoy signatures like spaghetti alla Moro with egg, crispy artichokes, and roasted baby goat with rosemary.

Insider Tip:

Franco, who stands at the front greeting guests with hostility, makes it a challenge for any new diner, as if he or she must be tested before entering.
