Recommended to me by fellow Gogoboters, this is an insanely beautiful yet haunting crypt with the bones of hundreds of Capuchin monks. They have a taste for the macabre, but it's one of the most remarkable tributes to the pedigree of the order.

A favourite lunch spot of mine before an afternoon stroll around the Piazza Barberini. Never knew there could be so many shades of white: from the table linen to decor, giving the place a crisp, contemporary feel. Very fresh fish served with applomb.

Great service, reasonable prices for the area and live music. Located near the Piazza Barberini, Enoteca Barberini is a solid choice for food and drink in this tourist area. The cheapest glass of wine runs four euros. Not too shabby. Say hello to Simone, the bartender, who is both wise and friendly.Popular with

Located near Parco Borghese with a pleasing high viewpoint, the bar at the luxury Hotel Eden restaurant, La Terazza, was a pleasant spot for an afternoon libation. A great variety of cocktails and other drinks are available. Drinks come with a large variety of tasty bites. Order a second drink, and a whole new array of plates and bites are ...

Tucked away in a small street near Piazza Barberini, hardly any tourists, but the food is amazing and inexpensive. See my review here: http://www.mapplr.com/2009/11/12/hostaria-romana-lunch-near-piazza-barberini-rome/

Great food. Service was very good. Went there with a 5-year old and she got a special dish. Italians really love kids. Great peaches (summer), super risotto, excellent grilled fish.Popular with

They say it's impossible to find a bad meal in Italy. Even when the restaurant is located right next door to the most touristy of areas. This holds true for Alla Rampa. Situated right next to the Spanish Steps, this is one of my favorite pasta driven restaurants in Rome. But careful filling up on the linguini and save room ...

The air-conditioned dining room and free Wi-Fi alone makes Restaurant Birreria Albrecht a worthy place to visit. The fact that they have beer makes it ever better. I stopped in when the restaurant was pretty much empty. I sat down, ordered a beer and made use of the wireless Internet. Another traveling couple came in, and they sat them right ...Popular with

This restaurant near the Palazzo Barberini, has a rooftop terrace where you can dine. We found it was too hot to sit in the sun so opted to lunch inside where the windows were open so we could still appreciate the fresh air. The menu was Italian with nice seafood offerings. Not great, but still enjoyable.

Yes, it's hideously touristy but both the place and the location are so steeped in history that it's a must-visit at least once. Stendhal, Goethe, Byron, Franz Liszt, Keats, Henrik Ibsen, Hans Christian Andersen and Felix Mendelssohn are amongst the historical figures who've previously taken tea and cake here. It's not the oldest place of its kind in Italy, that ...Popular with

Best gelato in Rome! I don't even like pistachio normally as a flavor because in the States, it's very artificial, however at Giolitti, the pistachio flavor is nutty and fantastic. Get it and you won't be disappointed. All the flavors are great here. I also got the tiramisu which was delicious. If you must have gelato, try it here. Apparently ...Popular with

A charming restaurant in the even more charming Jewish district of Rome, this spot serves a selection of kosher traditional goodies - like the Jewish Artichoke - with a friendly smile. Skip the kosher beer, though - it can't compare to better contemporary options like He'Brew in the States.Popular with

It's a deceptively humble establishment as far as decór goes. It's nothing fancy, and it doesn't have an artsy gelato display like most others of its kind; but what else would you expect from an artisanal gelateria that does everything organic and preservative-free? My top picks of gusti are Il Gelato di San Crispino (honey-based), Crema allo Zenzero e Cannella ...Popular with

One of my favorite gelaterie in Rome. Grom uses only natural ingredients (no preservatives) and they have great flavors. Service is extremely friendly, and they do a good job of keeping the line moving. I ordered the salted caramel (step back, Bi-Rite in San Francisco, this one is better) and the dark chocolate. Simply divine, especially given you have all ...Popular with

This is what espresso in Heaven must taste like! All of the hype you've heard is 100% true -- this is without question the single best cup of espresso I have ever had in the world. Yes, the world's best. If you love coffee, make this your first stop in Rome. I literally shed tears in the street on my ...Popular with
