Where to Eat in Rome: The Best Restaurants and Bars

July 19, 2017 Dorsey Hagwood

Rome wasn't built in a day--and you'll need much more than a day to take in this timeless city. The city is a real-life collage of piazzas, open-air markets, and astonishing historic sites. Toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain, contemplate the Colosseum and the Pantheon, and sample a perfect espresso or gelato before spending an afternoon shopping at the Campo de’Fiori or Via Veneto. Enjoy some of the most memorable meals of your life here, too, from fresh pasta to succulent fried artichokes or a tender oxtail stew.

Pinsere

Reviewed By AnnLisbon - Lisbon, Portugal

The best pizzas in Rome! We ate at several places but these were undoubtedly the best. We went there twice and the super friendly staff recognized us. The pizzas are very tasty and there are many varieties. They are not expensive and are delicious. The only drawback is that we have to eat standing up and the space is so small, but it's worth going there to try.

Panino Divino

Reviewed By hansartist - Rome, Italy

Panino Divino is a mandatory stage when you are in the area in which it is located to try tehir amazing "panini" (sandwiches). In particular you have to try the "Panino con Porchetta" (a typical stuffed pork flavoured with many spices and grilled directly on the fire).
Personnel is nice and they have the more classic italian attitude to serve you, sandwhches amazing and price very interesting!

Birra e Sale

It is the place of Italian Craft Beer and Italian Gastronomia.

Great selection of breads, meats, cheeses and a few veggies, staff spoke English. My husband and I enjoyed delicious and affordable sandwiches here. There are a few stools so it's mostly geared toward grab and go but we had no problem getting seats (plus there's free wifi).

My husband and I popped in for dinner last night and we were delighted with the staff, the food, wine and atmosphere....The food was just divine....menu was small (Always a good sign)! The wine was delish! We can't wait to go back and are delighted that we have an authentic Italian restaurant on our door step to frequent! If you love Italian food it really is without question that you will love this place.

Reviewed By Wetravelalot12 - London

Small friendly Sandwich shop located opposite II Tempio di Adriano. Freshly made sandwichs with a great selection of beers. The shop is tiny. As we went in January there were only a couple of seats inside. I am not sure if during the summer that put out more table and chairs in the square. Food was very nice with all fresh ingredients.

Lost Food Factory

Reviewed By RinaBina - Colchester, United Kingdom

If you’re in Rome you must come here to eat IMMEDIATELY!
Freshly prepared fillings in crusty hot panini bread.
I recommend the Porchetta (roasted pork with crackling) and Panzenella (tomatoes and balsamic vinegar). A close second is spicy salami, turnip top antipasti and pecorino cheese. To be honest, whatever you chose is made to perfection by the owners!

Classico panino all'ora di pranzo. C'è la possibilità di personalizzare ma anche di seguire veri e propri consigli. Come si cade, si cade bene. Il personale è simpatico e la cosa non guasta.
