Rome wedding meal restaurants suggestions....?


Im getting married in Rome later this year and not having much luck finding a restaurant for the wedding meal/reception. Its only a small affair for 14 people, looking at paying approx £100 per head. Im thinking somewhere thats laid back with nice scenery/location, maybe a rooftop restaurant or somewhere on Villa Borghese.

Would anyone have any suggestions, would be most appreciated as im struggling to even come up with a short list!

Many Thanks

  1. The rooftop restaurant of the Hotel Fortyseven, called Circus, is really very good with a perfectly extraordinary view. It's near the Tiber, Piazza Venezia, Circus Maximus, and much else.

    1. Pierluigi is a five minute walk from Campo de' Fiori and is set on a pedestrian only piazza (Piazza de' Ricci) with lots of outdoor seating. They also just renovated the interior of the restaurant and have some great private spaces inside that would accomodate that size group very well. It's primarily a seafood restaurant and would fit well in your price range.

      1. I hear your pain! The post-wedding meal/reception question is a surprisingly difficult one, that I get quite often.

        I agree with YounginRome about Pierluigi. But this would depend on time of day/year. If it's the evening, no problem. But Pierluigi gets quite hot at lunch in July//August.

        I also love Piperno, which has gorgeous outdoor seating in a small piazza. Not a 'view' but very romantic.

        Since your limit is £100 per person (which is actually quite a bit for Rome) there is also Aroma, atop the Palazzo Manfredi. But this is quite formal, however with a spectacular view of the Colosseum.

        I hope this helps!

          I have no concrete suggestions, but I am not sure that street seating would be that wonderful for a large group where the members may want to talk. A more intimate setting might be better.
