I see there are a lot of people on the board with worries about the closures. Well if I was in Rome for more than three days, I probably would worry more. But since there are still lots of lovely places to eat - hopefully all will be well. I have pretty much found that by researching this in advance, we will still be able to eat at restaurants that sound great to us, but maybe aren't at the top of our list. I mean hey, they need holidays too!
Here are the closed restaurants (or so they said - I suppose anything is possible, but this is Rome) Unfortunately, many of the very traditional restaurants are closed...also hence why they are closed...they are traditional restaurants run by mom and pop...ok not many of these are like that but the idea is the same:
Armando Al Pantheon
Agata e Romeo
Camponeschi closed 12-19 (decided to rule this one out anyways)
Sora lella open until August 11
Ditirambo open until August 10, not open again until September 3
Dino and Tony's (this made me sad)
Checchino dal 1887 (this me even more sad)
Settembrini (closes August 4)
Open Restaurants (we are there the 11-14):
Il Fico - will probably go for Sunday dinner
Checco e Carettiere - always open!!
Convivio Troiani – closed sundays - we will probably go for our last dinner in Italy here!!
Obika - will probably go for Sunday brunch.
Forno at Campo di Fiori, appears to be always open on their website.
Giolitti's also appears to be always open on their website.
Al Presidente - closed from the 13th. Although I have heard very mixed reviews of this one, it is close to where we are staying, so it might be an option when we arrive.
Volpetti the gourmet shop in via Marmorata is also supposed to be open in August. We could pick-up a simple panino or cheese etc. (Thanks mb!)
I am also hoping that Sant'Eustachio, Tazza Doro, and I Tre Scalini will be open.
I am still wondering about Casa Bleve.
I'll keep you posted for those that are interested!
