2015 update for our list of food venues in Rome which we enjoy visiting time and again. According to us these places are to be regarded as “must-visit” because of their constant quality over time in terms of hospitality and offering, to the point that we like to refer to them as “The Untouchables”. Gastronomy of course is not static and we usually update the list at least once a year.
101 addresses in total split in 27 categories.
Each venue has a link to our post when available (if in Italian with automatic translation available below each post) or other helpful sources. You may also want to access our customized google map to see how to get there.
Icons allow especially Rome visitors to quickly understand if it is easy to access the location from main touristic attractions or not:
in Historical Center or within a walking distance (e.g. Trastevere or Termini train station areas)
for more adventurous eaters, requiring a car/taxi ride or a longer trip by bus/metro
Please beware that even though many places could be in more than one category, we have chosen to position them into the category where we feel they provide their best. In addition, the order is strictly alphabetical as we are not so keen on providing rankings.
As usual, we greatly welcome your comments and feedbacks…
