Restaurant in Rome wanted!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!ūüėČ

Happy to return here after keeping silence for a while! My DH and I bought a cruise at P&O Cruises on April 2019 -- we're going to Mediterranean cruise. So my DH decided to make a gift for me (funny I know about it:classic_biggrin:) and we need some help!

We'll dock at Rome on my Bday (I'm gonna celebrate 60:classic_ohmy:) and we plan to visit a really good restaurant with charming atmosphere  & delicious food! We've read a lot how to get to Rome from Civitavecchia but don't know which restaurant to choose.... Any ideas?

I am always hesitant to recommend restaurants (anywhere) as I am not, by any stretch of the imagination, a gourmet (although I do enjoy Italian food). There are others on this forum much more qualified than I - I am sure they will be happy to share some of their personal  favorites with you. In the meantime, to get you started ...

Thanks for links, we would prefer some personal experience anyway. Maybe you have your best pizza or pasta or dolci ever that you can recommend us in Rome)

Trattoria Al Moro, long established traditional restaurant near Trevi. Memorable evening here.

Osteria Ana, near piazza Republica. Authentic, local restaurant, excellent food.

Well, if he want to truly pull out all the stops, I'd say La Pergula up on the highest hill of Rome at the Rome Cavalieri (a Waldorf-Astoria hotel).  Michelin-rated.  Romantic.  Fantastic view overlooking Rome.  

 

One of my personal favorites is Armando al Pantheon.  Very small trattoria, known for fine Roman cuisine.  It is a nice mix of locals and tourists.  Reservations are a MUST, weeks in advance.  www.armandoalpantheon.it  you can book a table online. 

 

Otherwise, I'd look at recommendations by Katie Parla on her website, www.katieparla.com.   I've had some personal interactions with her over the years (via another chat site)  and she has never steered me wrong.  And, go to www.chowhound.com and look on the Italy  board for some of the latest reviews/comments from foodies.

 Thanks for your recommendations, but it seems that they are very cozy, but for our small lunch we want something more exquisite, more special, festive. You suggested places for regular visit, at least it seemed to me so...

But thanks anyway!

Just took a look at first recommended restaurant - OMG, Waldorf-Astoria looks amazingly outstanding! Small menu, but all the positions sound so appetizing! We liked Gourmet menu - the best way to try main part of suggested dishes! 

We will look through Katie Parla website for more suggestions - so good we have enough time to choose and to book a table for us!
