Eating

This is a city that lives to eat. Food feeds the Roman soul, and a social occasion would be nothing without it. Over recent decades the restaurant scene has become increasingly sophisticated, but traditional no-frills trattorias still provide Rome’s most memorable gastronomic experiences.

Roman Trattorias
The bedrock of the Roman food scene has long been the family-run trattorias that pepper the city’s streets and piazzas. These simple eateries, often with rickety wooden tables and nonna (grandma) at the stove, have been feeding visitors for centuries and are still the best bet for no-nonsense Roman dishes such as amatriciana (a tomato sauce flavoured with guanciale – c ured pig’s cheek – and served with pasta, typically thick spaghetti called bucatini ) or carbonara ( guanciale , egg and salty pecorino roman o cheese paired with spaghetti or rigatoni pasta tubes).

Street Food
Street food is hugely popular in Rome and recent years have seen a trend for gourmet fast food sweep the city. Alongside pizza al taglio (sliced pizza) joints and gelaterie, you’ll find numerous places serving classic snacks such as supplì (fried rice balls with various fillings) and fritti (fried foods) with a modern twist.

Gelateria del Teatro Around 40 choices of delicious ice cream, all made on site.
Gelateria Dei Gracchi A taste of heaven in several locations across Rome.

Top Tips
A In restaurants, it’s standard practice to be given bread and charged for it whether you eat it or not.
A Tipping: round the bill up or leave a euro or two in pizzerias/trattorias; five to 10% is fine in smarter restaurants.

Drinking & Nightlife

There’s simply no city with better backdrops for a coffee or drink than Rome: you can sip espresso in historic cafes, claim piazza seating for an aperitivo or wander from wine bar to restaurant to late-night drinking den, getting happily lost down picturesque cobbled streets in the process.

Where to Drink
Options range from traditional cafes, seemingly unchanged in centuries, to old-school enoteche (wine bars), craft beer pubs, and chic lounge bars serving aperitivi to the glitterati. The hottest drinking trend right now is for expertly-mixed cocktails served in backroom speakeasies. Some of these hidden bars require patrons to pay a small membership fee, usually around €5. Many long-standing cocktail bars also double as laid-back cafes by day – Trastevere has plenty of examples.

Clubbing
Rome’s clubbing action, largely centred on Ostiense and Testaccio, caters to most tastes with DJs playing everything from lounge and jazz to dancehall and hip-hop. Clubs tend to get busy after midnight, or even after 2am, and while admission is sometimes free, drinks are expensive.

Best Cafes
Sciascia Caffè Delicious coffee in an elegant interior.
Caffè Sant’Eustachio Historic centro storico (historic centre) cafe serving exceptional coffee.
La Bottega del Caffè Terrace seating overlooking Monti’s prettiest piazza; great coffee, too.
Barnum Cafe Laid-back Friends-style cafe with shabby-chic furniture and good coffee.
Antico Caffè Greco Located near the Spanish Steps, this 1760 charmer is Rome’s oldest cafe. (pictured)

Best Wine Bars

Wine Concept Run by expert sommeliers, with an extensive list of Italian regional labels and European vintages.
Ai Tre Scalini Buzzing enoteca that feels as convivial as a pub.

Doppiozeroo Popular Ostiense address with impressive buffet choice.

Best Speakeasies

Club Derrière At the rear (get it?) of a trattoria, with top-notch cocktails.
Keyhole Prohibition-era decor and large menu of craft cocktails.

Best Beer

Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fà Pint-sized bar crammed with real-ale choices.
Open Baladin More than 40 beers on tap and up to 100 bottled brews.

Top Tip
Romans tend to dress up to go out, especially in the smarter clubs and bars in the centro storico (historic centre) and Testaccio. Over in Pigneto and San Lorenzo, the style is much more alternative.

Shopping

Rome has a huge array of specialist shops, fashion boutiques and artisanal workshops, with a particularly impressive portfolio of food, clothing and accessory boutiques. Many of these businesses are family owned, having been passed down through the generations. Others have grown from their modest origins into global brands.

What to Buy
Rome is a top place to shop for designer clothes, shoes and leather goods. Foodie treats are another obvious choice and you’ll find no end of delis, bakeries, pasticcerie (pastry shops) and chocolate shops. Homeware is another Italian speciality, and many shops focus on covetable kitchenware and sleek interior design.

Shopping Areas
For designer clothes head to Via dei Condotti (pictured) and the streets around Piazza di Spagna. You’ll find vintage shops and fashion boutiques on Via del Governo Vecchio and around Campo de’ Fiori in the centro storico , and in the Monti district. Testaccio is a good bet for foodie purchases, with one of Rome’s best delis and a daily market.

Artisans
Rome has a surprising number of artists and artisans who create their goods on the spot in hidden workshops. There are a number of good options in Tridente (try Via Margutta, Via dell’Oca and Via della Penna) and in Monti (try Via del Boschetto and Via Panisperna).

Best Fashion
Atelier Livia Risi Comfortable, stylish and adaptable pieces off the rack or made to measure.
Bomba Family-operated atelier and boutique selling gorgeous clothing.
