A Hedonist’s guide to…

Rome

Green T
Upscale gourmet address serving Chinese high cuisine that follows traditional recipes bound to surprise even the most seasoned traveller and good enough to make you skip pasta for an entire evening.
Glass Hostaria
Glass Hostaria is a slice of civilised and contemporary restaurant dining in amongst the rowdy Trastevere tourist traffic.
Hosteria del Pesce
Acutely fashionable and glamorous, despite being, by all accounts, a massively overpriced fish restaurant.
L’Arcangelo
Sommelier and owner Arcangelo Dandini opened this elegant trattoria at the end of 2003 with his wife Stefania, and has since received great acclaim on account of Tuscan chef Fulvio Pierangelini's innovative takes on Roman cuisine.
Il Pagliaccio
An exceptional restaurant on almost all counts, where Michelin-starred chef Anthony Genovese has been captivating contemporary Romans with his Mediterranean concoctions tinged with Asiatic touches for two years.
Enoteca Costantini Il Simposio
This rather stuffy wine bar and restaurant on Piazza Cavour is very appealing in the colder months, when you can neck back some corpulent wines in a sumptuous i

Hostaria dell’Orso
Once an inn accommodating the likes of Dante and then Goethe, Hostaria dell'Orso is housed in a 15th-century patrician palazzo on the banks of the Tiber.
Dal Bolognese
Traditional high-end Roman eaterie Dal Bolognese poses no surprises or edgy mystique, but sometimes there's more to life than gritty nouveau-chic.
Hostaria Costanza
Don't be put off by the anonymous entrance of this upscale yet still down- to-earth osteria in the heart of the historical centre, a few steps away from heavily-trodden Campo dei Fiori.
La Rosetta
Massimo Riccioli's lauded fish restaurant feels like a ship inside, all wooden portholes and white tablecloths, and the most comprehensive list of Mediterranean aquatic creatures imaginable.
Pierluigi
Pierluigi caters to the dreams of those seeking a picture-postcard Roman holiday, and indeed everyone seems to have a soft spot for this dependable restaurant.
Duke’s
This lively bar/restaurant is where the city's young professionals gather.
Al Bric
Officially a wine and cheese emporium, Al Bric goes above and beyond.
Il Tempio di Iside
Pricey, but one of Rome's best seafood restaurants.
La Terrazza dell’Eden
