Italians love children. But that doesn't mean traveling in Rome with your kids is that easy. There is the tricky challenge of transportation and the difficulty accessing some historical sites with strollers. Other comforts that you are used to at home just might not be available, like booster chairs in restaurants. But that doesn't mean you should be wary about bringing your kids out to eat with you in Rome. Restaurants here are often noisy, busy places where children are very welcome.
When the weather permits, some of the best family friendly restaurants in Rome have an outdoor area where kids can entertain themselves. It's not unusual to go to lunch on a Sunday afternoon and listen to the joyous giggles of kids running around. The Vivi Bistro in Villa Pamphili is the perfect restaurant to go to if you want to lounge around enjoying your food, while your children expend energy on the green grass of one of Rome's biggest parks.
Another quality that makes a good family friendly restaurant in Rome is its food. Italian food is some of the most kid-approved food in the world, revolving as it does around tried and tested pasta and pizza. Each of the restaurants in the list below offer just the kind of kid pleasing dishes that adults will be sure to enjoy too.
