Looks like I'll be in Rome with my family in July. We will be staying at the Hilton outside of town (I know, I know, we had the points, though!) I was wondering if I could get a few specific restaurant recommendations. We are extremely big on trying unique Roman specialties, lamb and red meat, and truly excellent seafood, and would like to focus on those areas. I think my parents and I would also very much enjoy visiting a couple of off-the-beaten path but really top notch little restaurants. Something distinctive, unique, so forth....
We will also being going to Pompeii. Is there anything worth eating within easy reach of the ruins?.
La Pergola - This is going to be our blowout meal. Is it still worth every penny?
La Rosetta (seafood)
Osteria Il Bocconcino
Checchino dal 1887
