Rome may not be a 24 hour city like it's other international big city counterparts of New York, London or Hong Kong, but it's guaranteed you'll never go hungry in the eternal city. Late night dining is kind of just dining in Rome or Italy. Italians are renowned for not having dinner before 8pm with this stretching to 9-10pm in the summer or even later. So for a foreigner, what may seem like late-night dining in Rome may just be the norm.
