3 Night In Rome, Help
I assume you wish fine dining. In order from best to least good.
1. and your third night: Il Convivio: last ate there Jan 2007. The wine steward really knows his stuff; ask for his recommendation with respect to your food. My favorite eating in Rome since 1998.
2. and your 2nd night Checchino dal 1887. Last there March 2006. Good food, and the wine list is both outstanding and less expensive than in most restaurants. If you're brave enough to try tripe, then this is the place. If not, most menu selections are not tripe. Great for Roman cooking.
3. and your 1st night: Piperno: Last there 2003. Not kosher, but still fine for the Jewish-Roman cuisine.
4. Al Pompiere. Last there March 2007. Piperno is better for this kind of food.
Quinzi e Gabrieli I've never tried.
We had dinner at Quincy and Gabrieli a few weeks ago and it was outstanding!! Order the lobster catalana style, you will not be sorry....or try their signature dish, pasta with lobster...simply heavenly. All the fish is delivered daily and also great. Don't overlook dessert, they too are over the top..We have dinner there at least once each year while in Roma. Sit on the patio its charming and more fun than inside.
The other restaurant that we love in Roma is Pier Luigi, Piazza Ricci, great pasta and wonderful fish and seafood. Ask to sit with Umberto, he will make your evening a sheer pleasure. They are closed on Monday
Stay away from Al Moro, behind the Trevi fountain, that was the worst meal we have had in Rome after many trips there. Nothing we ordered was edible, veal tough, pasta over cooked, even the bread was not good, and thats hard to do in Roma.
When you return, please let us know about your choices...enjoy my favorite city.
