    Our gastronomic tour of the capital city

    No trip to Rome would be complete without a tour of the city’s best food destinations

    Whether it’s gourmet cuisine, traditional cooking or tasty street food, no trip to Rome would be complete without a tour of the city’s best food destinations. Our tour begins at Café Romano  of the Hotel d’Inghilterra - Starhotels Collezione. A restaurant with a sophisticated and cosmopolitan atmosphere. The perfect setting for the chef’s creative dishes based on the use of locally-sourced and seasonal ingredients (Via Borgognona, 4m). The last floor of Palazzo delle Esposizioni houses Open Colonna, a one-Michelin-starred restaurant. A well-balanced mix of traditional Roman and international dishes (Via Milano, 9a). Another Michelin star shines just steps away from Piazza Navona, Convivio Troiani. Creative and traditional cuisine, simple and tasty (Vicolo dei Soldati, 31).

    Enoteca Achilli al Parlamento, a one-Michelin-starred restaurant, has one of Italy’s most extensive and deepest wine cellars (Via dei Prefetti, 15). In the Trastevere area, Glass Hostaria, with a one Michelin star, is the kingdom of multi-awarded chef Cristina Bowerman (Vicolo del Cinque, 58). In the Parioli neighborhood, the restaurant run by a young Colombian chef, Metamorfosi, with a one Michelin star (Via G. Antonelli, 30/32). The two-Michelin-starred Il Pagliaccio is the home of Anthony Genovese, a French chef of Italian origin, who creates Far East-inspired dishes rich in herbs and spices (Via dei Banchi Vecchi, 129a).

    For more traditional flavours, try Matricianella, one of the city’s best-known trattorias (Via del Leone, 4), or Hostaria da Pietro, whose menu features all the quintessential Roman dishes, including a terrific vignarola (Via di Gesù e Maria, 18). For the street food lovers, we recommend Supplizio, a fried-food shop downtown Rome, where you can enjoy excellent supplì, potato crocchette, meatballs, ribollita and tripe (Via dei Banchi Vecchi, 143). And for a taste of the real  Roman focaccia, Antico forno Roscioli (Via dei Chiavari, 34).
