“What’s your favorite Italian restaurant in Rome?” I am asked often by friends and guests looking for the ultimate food experience in Rome.
There are several restaurants in Rome that have been serving traditional Roman recipes for generations caring about their customers and seasonal ingredients rather than blindly following food critics and trends.
Most of these neighborhood restaurants in Rome have been run by the same families for the last 20, 30 or even 40 years thriving on very genuine good food, old-school waiters and great value. I love these family-run Roman restaurants because here I can really enjoy authentic Roman food and never left disappointed over the years as these traditional Roma restaurants maintain their standards high year after year. With the emphasis on freshness and seasonality combined with attentive waiters and great value that’s the list of my favorite traditional Italian restaurants in Rome suitable for the gourmet traveler looking for excellent Roman food and fine wines in Rome but also for families visiting Rome with children looking for a nice and relaxed family dinner in Rome.
