In planning the most romantic holiday of your life in Rome, the one thing you'll need to know before you get there is where to eat. After all, what goes hand in hand with love and romance if not food?
The eternal city is full of restaurants and bars and whether it's a trattoria, pizzeria, a gelato or Michelin star dining experience you're after, you can bet you'll find it in the eternal city.
For that special romantic occasion, say a proposal or an anniversary or for when you really want to impress, make a booking in advance at the best restaurant in Rome - if not Italy - La Pergola. Located at the Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria, it boasts 3 Michelin Stars and is the only one of its kind in Rome. Featuring a terrace with a spectacular view of the city, not to mention the food and wine, this is a once in a lifetime dining experience.
But if local and simple Roman fare is your style, who's to say that's not romantic? Head to Da Enzo, the quintessential Roman trattoria with chequered tablecloths but importantly, authentic cucina romana. Or if you want to try real deal Roman pizza, Da Remo in Testaccio is the place. For a stylish pub experience there's Open Baladin in the center and for you sweet-tooths, try the mini desserts at one of Rome's premier cake shops, Cristalli di Zucchero or the famous tiramisu at Bar Pompi.
Happy eating in the city of love!
