View Where I’ll be eating 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 Michelin-star worthy dining, the city’s best burrata, or some down-home offal, you won’t be disappointed. You can also get my August suggestions in portable form on my app under “Tours” –> “Suggestions from Katie”. Speaking of tours, if you are looking for a food tour or wine tasting during your August trip don’t hesitate to contact me!

Please note, these openings have been updated for 2014. 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.
