Eating out in Rome is a real treat and one the Eternal City’s great pleasure. Rome offers a wide range of restaurants to please any palate and satisfy any appetite. Over the last few years new fine dining restaurants, run by young and creative people, have sprang up in Rome serving up a range of innovative takes on Italian and Roman traditional dishes in warm and friendly atmosphere making these places an ideal venue for a relaxed lunch or an intimate dinner. These slow food restaurants in Rome are less formal and more focused on seasonal dishes, local and fresh ingredients, knowledgeable but small wine lists, attentive but discreet service, and quality at affordable price. These new Rome slow food restaurants are usually small restaurants located across Rome and no longer tied to the historical Rome center (Centro Storico).
