Gianicolo Restaurants

  • La Terrazza

    We were there for the special champagne happy hour and it was great. The restaurant could not be better situated in the Piazza Fontanone - with the monument on one side and the panarama of Rome across the street. One of the most romantic settings for dinner in Rome! buffet

    Take any bus to Gianicolo Station - and outside the terminal you will see the #115 mini bus that goes up and down the Gianicolo Hill. A lovely ride!
    There is also ample parking if you prefer to drive.
