Burger Bar & Grill in Rome, Italy


Italy meets America on the table. Most often, Italy plays protagonist on the Italian tables, but this time, in Rome itself, we get to try what the Americans favor on their table. Grilled meat sits very well with the Italian palate as well as burgers (with selected quality meat), potatoes and salads too. There’s no other way to best enjoy the succulence and tenderness of freshly-grilled meat than what the restaurant offers. What makes Burger Bar & Grill stand out is that you can grill your own meat straight on your tables with the built-in individual table grills.

Fallo alla Romana at Eataly Rome, Italy


Fallo all Romana! We share the quality and the jolly ambience. Eataly Rome launches a new initiative dedicated to the traditional Roman cuisine with a special daily event every 19:00 to 23:00. On the 12th of April Eataly launched its new formula of "Fallo alla Romana" (Do It The Roman Way). It is based on the old Roman way of sharing the food and the pleasure of being together by having the food served straight from the pots and pans to your table. Taking up a typical Roman motto, it's a fun way to celebrate the culinary tradition and the convivial aspect of good eating and good drinking. It makes eating more homey and fun doesn't it?

Amodei - Banco & Bottega in Rome, Italy

 

How many times have we found ourselves in a situation when we don’t have so much time to spend in a restaurant and wait for different courses to arrive but we would rather not walk through the doors to a fast food place? Rome is full of gastronomic proposals but how much of them do we know enough to be good places to satisfy our palates with good genuine Italian cuisine? I have very few names in my arsenal and I am glad to add another one to my list of dependable places on where to have a quick bite without losing sight of quality.
