View Where to Eat in Rome in August in a larger map

Visiting Rome in August used to mean eating badly or seldom, but things have changed in recent years (sadly due to the mounting economic crisis) and now gastronomic-minded visitors need not compromise. Some great restaurants in Rome will be open for the entire month, so whether you want fine dining, the city’s best burrata, or some down-home offal, you won’t be disappointed.

Please note, these openings have been updated for 2015. They were accurate when published. Be sure to book well in advance and bear in mind that August 15 (The Feast of the Assumption aka Ferragosto) is a national holiday and most (but not all!) businesses citywide will be closed. The following places will be open August 15: Nonna Betta, Mazzo, Tavernaccia da Bruno, La Gensola, La Torricella, Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fà (beer only), Mesob (dinner only), Cesare al Casaletto, Flavio al Velavevodetto, Pizzarium, Romeo.
