Group dining in Rome??

by xdivinemadnessx

My Travel and Tourism college class is visiting Rome at the end of april and I am wondering if there are any restaurants around the Trevi fountain area that can accommodate about 36/38 people?

Any advice would be much appreciated!

Thanks

Re: Group dining in Rome??

by Roadquill

I always check chowhound.com for restos. Also tripadvisor is now showing more resto reviews. Consolato d Abruzzo By metro stop Nomentana has some good reviews. Our favorite resto in Rome is the Bear North of Piazza Navona (on my VT rome page) there is an upstairs that could probably seat your party.

Interesting predicament for a travel college class. I have not been there but the two reviews on tripadvisor seem to indicate they were satisfied (although my Italian is not that good) http://www.consolatodabruzzo.it/Presentazione.htm

For tripadvisor reviews see (http://rome-hotels.tripadvisor.com/Restaurant_Review-g187791-d801490-Reviews-Consolato_d_Abruzzo-Rome_Lazio.html)

If you can't find a suitable place using Karl's advice, or you want someone to arrange it for you, contact VT member abarbieri (Antonio) who is, as he says, 'your concierge in Rome'. He may charge you a fee since he does this for a living, or he may arrange a commission from the restaurant so bear that in mind, but if he agrees to help you, you will be taken care of because this is what he does.

Tell him that 'Bill sent you'...but I bet he'll help you anyway ;-)

Travel Tips for Rome

COLOSSEUM

The colosseum is...

by arkadia

COLOSSEUM

The colosseum is the largest anphitheatre ever built in Rome and the symbol par excellence of Romanism was the work of the Flavian emperors and was for this reason called the Amphiteatrum Flavium. The name “Colosseum” was first used in the Middle Ages and derives from the colossal bronze statue of Nero as sun god which stood on the side of the vestibule of the Domus Aurea, near the Amphitheatre.

Various kinds of spectacles were held in the Colosseum; the munera or contest between gladiators, the venations, or hunts of wild beasts.
The number of spectators the Colosseum was capable of containing; opionions vary, but the figure must have been around 50'000 (not too bad for a spectacle).

Truth or Dare!

by engeluna

Also made famous my Roman Holiday, the monument of truth is now an overcrowded Roman attraction. Like Gregory Peck, everyone wants to try their luck by placing their hand in the statue's giant mouth. Of course, I did too!

Pub crawls and Campo

by sissah

Ok, if you walk by the colosseum, Planet Hollywood or are in the train station close to 8 or 9 on pretty much any night of the year, you're likely to get some American running up to you and handing you a flier for a pub crawl. So, what this is, is you're going to give them $15 of your money, they're going to give you a t-shirt and some free drinks, and they're going to walk you through five or six bars until you end up at Campo di Fiore (big nighttime spot). Sounds ok, except you'll be hanging out with a bunch of college kids who can't drink legally in the states and after one or two bars will be puking (not to mention, they are really young, and you'll be dealing with that all night), and you'll be dealing with some American Sailors, too. The Sailors are sometimes older, usually not, and if you're into the younger bar scene, I'd suggest just skipping the pub crawl and heading straight for Campo di Fiore. During the day, the area is a market and a nice little area, at night -- it's a whole lot of drunk people. It's a younger crowd -- one of the bars will give girls a free drink if they show their boobs -- and all of the pub crawls end up here. If you're not into the younger bar scene, this might not be the area you want to check out.

The #1 Italian Restaurant In Rome!

by Krystynn about Ristorante La Pergola

Whenever I visit the Eternal City for work or for a fun-filled weekend, I always include a dining pilgrimage to this absolutely fabulous restaurant (esp when I don't have to pick up the tab for dinner or lunch).

Situated atop the Hilton Hotel and overlooking Rome and the Vatican City, you can choose to dine either al fresco or inside the restaurant. It's definitely a great place to come on a date or if you wish to impress your date. Gorgeous tulips in beautiful small glass stones adorned each table. As we entered the plush restaurant, we were greeted by a friendly manager and waiter (who made it a point to remember our names and addressed us accordingly!).

The Italian cuisine - supervised by the mega-talented German chef (!) - Heinz Beck - is par excellence! Each time we dine here, a different menu awaits us.

P.S. Photograph taking is a strict no-no here! I had wanted to snap some photos of their exquisite dishes using my mobile phone camera and well, you know the end-result.... My favorite is their lobster dish - and each time I try it, it's prepared/cooked in different styles. The last time I ate here, it was Baked Lobster.

Another favorite of mine is their Tagliolini with Scampi. Exquisite!

Even the little baguettes served was yummy. And when you dip it in their Felsina Berardegna's Leccino olive oil - it's pure heaven!

My partner simply adores their Mushroom Ice Cream! Me? No comment. ;-)

Oh... and do try their Golden Tea. It's possibly the BEST tea I've tasted in this lifetime!

The Colosseum

by vichatherly

This is a fantastic place and is the one sight you should see every time that you visit Rome.

The quickest way to get into the place, especially if there are a group of you, is to go with one of the many guided tours that are available from the many guides milling around outside. It may not be the cheapest way of doing it, but otherwise give yourself plenty of time to queue up for tickets.

The ticket is a double entry ticket which also includes entry to the nearby Palatine Museum and Roman Forum. You might be able to get tickets in advance over the web. They might be more expensive, but again it may save you hours in the queue, check out Rome Musuem
