Rome best restaurants

Obviously, not everyone has the financial resources to eat in the finest restaurants, that's why I have contacted various Roman bloggers to know which are the best restaurants in their city.

The first 6 restaurants on this list are still expensive while the others have more affordable prices.


The contemporary art grand furniture makes this restaurant (with one Michelin star) one of the chicest in Rome, ( I know, still expensive). It is located on the Palazzo Manfredi terrace and has a beautiful view of the Colosseum.

The restaurant requires appropriate clothes, short pants, short sleeves, and flip-flops are all prohibited. The Aroma is ideal for a romantic dinner in Rome!

Hostaria dell'Orso

The Hostaria dell'Orso is another elegant restaurant in Rome. It's located in the center, close to Piazza Navona and overlooks the river Tiber.

The building dates back to 1400 and it's been recently renovated. During his long life this palace has changed skins, from a tavern to hotel, nightclub, and restaurant. Also some celebrities have eaten here like Clark Gable, Tyrone Power and others.

The chef, Gualtiero Marchesi, perfectly combines the Roman cuisine with sought-after ingredients, creating unique plates.


The Mirabelle is located in the center, on the 7th floor of the Hotel Splendide Royal. This privileged position offers a great view over Villa Borghese, Saint Peter Dome, and the Granicolo.

The table settings are very few, around thirty, but this guarantees a warm atmosphere, giving the sensation to be in a living room.

The All'Oro is located in Parioli and it's ideal to taste new plates with prices not so elevated but with a high-level cuisine.

The Imago restaurant overlooks the magnificent Trinità dei Monti square, with a beautiful 360° view from the 6th floor of the Hotel Hassler.

The dishes are refined, the classic Roman traditional dishes revised with a modern touch.

Il Sorpasso

A lot of good dishes but since you'll probably go there only one time, here what you must try: the "strapizzini", "pizza a foje", "ajo e ojo", "the polpette di Nonna Nina", and the cocktails.

Vizi Capitali

If you find yourself in Trastevere for dinner, go to Vizi Capitali.
It's all seafood based, fresh, directly from Terracina.

Pizzeria ai Marmi

If you want to eat the real Roman Pizza ( low and well peppered), this is the right Pizzeria. But you should try other fried dishes too like the famous Supplì, the "Fiori di Zucca".
And after dinner, you can take a walk in the Trastevere alleys.
