Today, Eater returns to Rome, Italy to discover the hottest drinking and dining destinations the city has to offer. Our guide, as always, is cookbook author and food writer Katie Parla, who dishes on the 10 buzziest openings of the past year.
"Rome's recent openings are increasingly drifting away from the traditional restaurant format," Parla says, noting new genres like innovative street food (the pizza-dough-sandwich slingers Trapizzino) and international cuisines (the Mexican-influenced Agaveria La Punta and the iekei-focused Ramen Bar Akira). Also on her radar: a spot reviving the Roman classic picchiapò (Mordi e Vai 2.0), a revamped version of a long-established deli (Taverna Volpetti), and a casual restaurant that will sate your pasta craving (Retrobottega).
Here now, and in geographic order, the Eater Heatmap to Rome — and when in Rome, make sure to memorize Eater's 38 Essential Restaurants, which will lead you towards the city's indispensable spots.
