When my wife and I go to Rome, our trip wouldn't be complete without a visit to La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali, tucked away on a side street just west of the Forum, 9 Via della Madonna dei Monti. The service is excellent (English spoken) , the ambiance is lovely, and the food is "to die for".
Recommendation from a first time poster. Double, maybe triple, check the recommendation.
If you put "La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali" into the "Search" function on this website, you'll see numerous comments by other posters who also loved the food and experience there. I am among those who has had two wonderful meals at this restaurant in very recent years. So, yes, first time poster, but the restaurant does have other good reviews.
We also had a fine meal here this year. It’s walking distance from the Lancelot Hotel that RS uses for the Best of Rome tour.
reservations normally required as they are very busy.
Someone on this forum recommended Nino near the Spanish Steps. We tried it and liked it so much we ate there twice. It is very nice--white tablecloths and waiters in white jackets--I would not wear jeans but they most likely would not turn you away.
Yes, Nino is a gem. It’s a Tuscan restaurant in Rome, sort of a fish out of water. But the food is great, the service splendid. We stopped for lunch and loved it. Surrounded by tables of men of a certain age having lunch with their daughters. They were their daughters, right? Anyway, we loved it and would go back in a minute. Here is a cute article about Nino and our friend Victor Hazan who we spent a week with in Venice eons ago: https://www.elizabethminchilli.com/2015/06/ristorante-nino-in-rome-with-victor-hazan/
We love Armando al Pantheon and La Rosetta( seafood only) near the Pantheon.
