Need Help for One Very Very Late but Fabulous Dinner in Rome and one stellar lunch.
I need a recommendation for a special, memorable restaurant (I mean great lively atmosphere and fantastic food, but not necessarily "fine" dining--Mother and sophisticated teen traveling) that will be serving and still busy very late (meaning after 11 p.m. ) on a saturday night. Unfortunately, on this trip Rome will be just a quick stopover for sleep and restoration (we have visited Rome before). Our travel arrangements have us arriving into the airport at 9:45 p.m. and we will have a driver take us into Rome, but I imagine we would not arrive until 11 p.m. or possibly later. We have to leave the next afternoon right after lunch for our destination. We haven't booked a hotel in Rome yet for that one night and can stay in any area, depending on where the dinner will be, but I hope to find a great walking neighborhood for dinner that is active and alive at night , and just find a hotel wherever that is, with great coffee choices for the morning and lunch choices nearby.
