The Absolute Gems of Rome
Italian cuisine is a gift that keeps on giving. We are talking about the cuisine that introduced the world to “Pizza.” I don’t think any other cuisine can compete with this accolade. If that wasn’t enough, Italian Pasta is a dish that is loved religiously worldwide. If the French have cheese, the Italians have sauce. You will never find a match for the incredible mastery of Italians when it comes to sauces. Just give an Italian chef some pasta, sauce, and meat; they’ll cook you hundreds of flavorsome dishes. I’ve already started craving for some nice Italian food, and I’m still in the first paragraph.
Ah, let’s dive into the list of top restaurants in Rome, offering the best Italian food that money can buy.
1. La Pergola
Fine dining doesn’t get much better than this. La Pergola boasts 3 Michelin Star rating. It is not a surprise that it is regularly elected as the best restaurant in Rome, all of Italy, and often internationally. The restaurant offers a great view of the city. Their wine collection includes some of the finest wine bottles, in quantities exceeding 53,000 bottles. The restaurant itself is located inside Rome Cavalieri Hotel, but its ambiance is truly mesmerizing. The menu offers a variety of seafood, different types of meat, cheese selection and dessert. Each dish on the menu translates into perfection.
Imago is another restaurant in Rome, which is graced with a Michelin star. The restaurant offers the perfect blend of delicious cuisine and world-class ambiance. Strips of glass walls offer an incredible view of Rome, while the staff serves you a premium meal. The menu is divided into categories that are dedicated to seafood, pasta dishes, meat-based main course meals, appetizers, cheese selection, scrumptious desserts and a huge wine collection. It would be an injustice if you visit Rome and don’t dine in here.
Rome without pizza? No way! Farine is dedicated to excellence in Roman-style pizzas. The menu at Farine consists of just 5 types of pizza, which is a testament to its dedication to quality, not quantity. The dough is so soft, the cheese so creamy and the blend of meat and sauces is truly one of a kind. The chef at Farine makes the pizzas with incredible care and devotion. They only use dough which is allowed to rise over a period of 72 hours. Results: one top quality pizza! Farine serves authentic Roman pizza at very affordable prices, which has made it a local success and a favorite among tourists.
4. Da Danilo
Pasta perfection seems to be the motto of Chef Danilo. Local press has recognized this family owned a restaurant for offering the best authentic Italian dishes. Their Carbonara is termed as “royalty,” which is enough reason for you to enjoy their past menu.
