Rome in August

elasticwaistband Jun 3, 2012 05:04 PM

I realize that it is too early to determine exact holiday closings.

I have listed some places that I think are open for at least part of August.

What I am wondering is if there is anyone that lives in Rome that knows if any of these are open or closed for certain during the Ferragosto period, as I am in Rome August 14th for 4 days.

Da Francesco

Trattoria Fiammetta

Ristorante Tre Archi Da Loreto Di Loreto Rubei

Tavernetta 48

Il Bacaro

Il Gocetto

Enoteca Il Bacocco

Le Mani in Pasta

Cul de Sac

La Taverna degli Amici

Flavio al Velavevodetto

La Taverna dei Fori Imperiale

Ristorante Spirito di Vino

    Just bumping thos back up in the hopes that since it is now July, maybe someone knows the answer. Of course, any other places that are open during this period would be great to know.

    Especially trying to find something near the Colosseum for lunch and Pantheon for dinner on Ferragosto (Wednesday the 15th).

    Thanks !

      I am pretty sure that Taverna dei Fori Imperiali is closing August 15 for two weeks.

        I had thought Grano was closed August 15, but their new website, www.ristorantegrano.it, claims to be open every day. They are very near the Pantheon and usually answer e-mail.

        The Colosseum is more difficult since there isn't much that's good even in normal times, much less mid-August. Le Naumachie, where I never go, might well be open, likewise Taverna dei Quaranta, where I haven't been for ages, but which I would consider acceptable for sustenance in the circumstances. The place is pleasant.

            Great start for the August list. Thanks so much.

            I also think that Il Fico and Ar Galletto may be open in August.

              Yes elasticwaistband, it is too early to be sure about many restaurants openings. We don't love advance planning in Rome!
              In the meantime you can have a look also to last year CH discussion about August closings in Rome:
