Romolo nel Giardino della Fornarina
The cooking is typically Roman with lots of fried food, pastas, vegetables, cheeses and herbs. The wines are, of course, mostly Roman. The restaurant is housed in a 16th century building and is named after a love-affair that took place there. It is said that the artist Raphael met Margherita Luti here, a woman who became his model and with whom he fell in love. Margherita was nicknamed 'la Fornarina', being the daughter of a baker. Eating under the trees in this romantic setting is a delight. The opening hours are: 1p-3p and 8p-midnight, Tuesday-Sunday.
We always go to this lovely resturant, year after year, it's good Roman fare!
We also had our wedding reception in the garden in October 2002, for 65 people, the staff were wonderful, food amazing, and the setting (the garden is part of the original Roman walls) is very pretty.
Can't fault it!
My husband and I used this restaurant for our wedding reception for 50 guests five years ago. It was amazing, both the court yard setting and the food was indescribable! We are going back this year for our anniversary to the same restaurant as we know you couldnt beat it! We had at least five courses and everything was delicious. The wines were very tasty also.
The staff were very polite, couldn't fault it at all.!
Nice people, nice tasting food and the service is exelent. The outdoor seating is very charming. I also visiteed Romolo several years earlier with my daughter. She got a nice drawing witch she still keeps on her wall.
I have been to Romolo twice, exactly 1 yr apart. The First time we dined on the lovely patio, stars in the autumn sky, and the faint sound of the thunder, beyond the city. Great food and service. It can be romatic, unfortunatly, I was there on business!
The next yr we dined indoors. The fun part was, our waiter remembered me, since he brought up the pictures we took with him and staff. The waitstaff say this was the home of Rafeals mistress, who happened to live right next door, not sure if this is true but it makes a great story.
Of all the places we dined in Italy, this is by far my favorite place.
Fun to walk the area afterward, late in the evening, with all the locals!
This was one of our best dining experiences in Rome (and there was a lot of competition!) We were one of the first to arrive, and were treated like special guests the entire night. I don't know how many courses had--lost count, but we were there three hours, and enjoyed each mouth-watering, amazing dish. We were given a tour of the home-turned-restaurant afterward. The waiter even let us keep our menus--the covers had beautiful reproductions of drawings made by guests--famous and not-so-famous... Very memorable.
This place was really one of the most horrible resteraunts that I have ever seen! The service was horrible and food was limited. I could not find anything that I liked, and had to settle for something that I still could not eat. For your sake, do not go to this place. There has to be something better out there.
Romolo is a lovely little restaurant hidden away on the back streets of the Trastevere district near the banks of the Tiber. It is a gem of a restaurant with a very traditional 'Roman' menu and it serves some truly wonderful dishes. One particularly tasty dish was the Roman artichoke which melts in your mouth and is divine! What followed this was just as good in quality and quantity.
We were very lucky to be one of the first to arrive for an early supper and the owner treated us to a 7 course meal, allowing us the sample the very best of what the restaurant had to offer. Even if you don't let your menu be decided for you, there is plenty of delicious food to choose from yourself!
My friend and I went to Romolo on the last night of our holiday (also my birthday).... fantastic food and very friendly and helpful staff as well as amazing food in the wonderful garden. I was taken by one of the waiters to be shown the ancient archway next to the restaurant... and the full moon! Has great memories.
