By far the most famous of the pizzerias in Rome is the Neapolitan pizzeria La Gatta Mangiona. Also known as simply the pizza place, it has been in business since the 1600s and is actually a much older establishment that is still going strong! Although it has a very trendy interior that includes plush couches, modern furnishings and a huge bar, the main reason why you should try it is for the great pastas available on their menu. There are many types of pasta available, including penne, portobellente, linguine and gnocchi, and every one of them is simply delicious. You can choose from the wide array of sauces available on the menu as well. Although very popular in the summer months, it is essential to try the pizzas during the colder winter months to truly appreciate them. The Neapolitan pizzeria La Baba has been awarded the AAA Diamond rating and is considered the oldest pizzeria in Rome. The pizzeria is closed on Mondays, but if you’re staying in one of the nearby Rome hotels you can visit it every day to try it for yourself.
If you’re staying in one of the nearby Rome hotels you can always visit one of the fine dining establishments near your hotel. One of the best is the Trattoria e Finzi on the Via Nazionale, which has been awarded a Michelin star in addition to its prestigious status. Great food can be found here in addition to their exquisite wines. The restaurant itself is decorated very similarly to those of the Neapolitan pizzerias, and has three levels. It’s a great place to unwind by sitting by the outdoor courtyard.
Speaking of great food, one of the most interesting things about Rome is that the ubiquitous food courts stand side by side with the city’s monuments and museums. Take a walk through the ones on your Rome luxury holiday and you’ll find some of the great locales of the city. Two of the best are the Testaccio sausage market and the Via del Popolo market, for delicatessen and souvenirs respectively.
The pizzeria next to the Duomo is one of the best places to get a pizza. Their famous pizzas are among the best in the city and their friendly staff will show you around and make you feel right at home.
The number of restaurants in the city has dropped because of the tourist boom, so you can enjoy eating from any number of restaurants when you stay in a Rome luxury hotel. But if you want to eat from just one, bear in mind that the restaurants around the major ones tend to be packed, particularly on Sundays, when the piazzas are really busy.
Many of the restaurants in the city are atmospheric and lively, especially in the discos. For a romantic night out, you can head to a mini- pizzeria in one of the central discos. If you’re not in the mood for dinner, there’s a wide range of restaurants in the city that are ideal for a date.
Why not stay in one of the Rome luxury hotels and go out on your own to enjoy the city? You’ll love it!
