Honeymoon - One Night in Rome

dzherbst Sep 14, 2007 11:18 AM

My fiancé and I will be honeymooning in Italy in November. We will be spending one week in Tuscany staying at two different villas, one in Greve and one near Grosetto. We have some great meals planned but more suggestions are always welcome. We will be flying back to the States from the Rome airport and decided to spend one night in the Eternal City for a final romantic dinner before we head back home. We have been to Rome before but, sadly, in late August when all the restaurants were closed. So we have seen the sights, but want to experience the tastes.

We are looking for something very romantic, delicious, memorable, and Roman (although we are not into tripe) -- open on Monday evening. Ideas suggested on this board that caught my eye include Antico Arco, Checchino dal 1887, and Il Convivio. Any thoughts on these or other lovely places for a special final supper?

    I don't know Antico Arco. Both Checchino and Il Convivio are tops. Between the two I'd choose Il Convivio. See my posts elsewhere.

      i also have only one night in rome, should i go to agate e romeo? or is it just a hype? am not looking for something fancy. i think simple italian cooking is always the best.

        It's NOT a hype, it's superb, but it sounds as though a neighborhood trattoria is more what you want.

      We just got back from our Italian honeymoon. Our favorite authentic Roman food was Armando al Pantheon. They have odd hours so email for a reservation. By far our favorite meal. We even ate the the top of the Hassler, which was great, but we liked Armandos better for down home Roman cooking.

        We had a very nice meal also at Armando, but I wouldn't suggest it as a very romantic place. And by the way, their trippa alla Romana (tripe) was outstanding! I didn't think I would like it, but it was really delicious! To the OP, I think any of the three you named would be wonderful for a special dinner.
