From the city center to Trastevere. Here’s our edit in the eternal City.

Rome has some of the best restaurants in the world. From simple trattorias to fine dining - our experts tried most of them, here are our highlights.

Pierluigi

Pierluigi

For outdoor dining in one of the most elegant non-touristic quiet squares, Pierluigi is an indulgent and lively Roman Ristorante. Known for it’s high-quality seafood selection, focus your ordering here for the freshest catch in town. Save for special occasions, the menu changes often as fish is sourced locally and seasonally, and enjoy a slightly different experience each time. Reservations highly suggested.

La Matricianella

La Matricianella

Around the corner from one of our favorite stays, J.K. Place Roma, Matricianella is an old-school classic - white table clothes, wooden table sets, small framed family photos and bottles of Sassaica line the walls. They only speak Italian and prefer that you have taken the time to make a reservation, even for lunch. This is why you ventured to Rome, isn’t it? Daily specials featuring selects from the markets a few blocks over are suggested, but everything is delicious, especially the artichokes, pastas and meats. Outdoor dining is a coveted experience if you can snag a table in advance. Reservations highly suggested.

Settimio all'Arancio

Settimio all'Arancio

Another classic in the old town, Settimio all'Arancio is an easy stroll from J.K. Place Roma serving wonderful fresh fish and Roman specialties in a quiet out of the way side street.
