If posh panoramas are your thing and you're looking for the ultimate five-star dining experience, the rooftop restaurant La Pergola will complete your Dolce Vita experience. For something a little bit more low-key and really Roman, locals and insiders head to Trattoria Vecchia Roma and Hostaria Dino e Toni where Roman fare rules the kitchen. Maybe you're looking for a quick bite of pizza on the run in between sight seeing? If so, Da Remo's pizza al taglio will certainly savor your taste buds.
When the weather gets warmer, the locals move outdoors and dine 'al fresco'. For tourists, this is one of the best ways to take in the beauty of some of Rome's most splendid landmarks while engaging in one of Italians' favorte past times, dolce far niente, an Italian expression for (sweet doing nothing) blissful laziness. Alas the best places to that are at Caffè della Pace and Ciampini in the Centro Storico of Rome. Whatever your fancy, 10Best has you covered with its extensive dining guide!
