Va.Do al Pigneto

Following the vibe of its neighbourhood, Va.Do al Pigneto comes off as a hip, creative eatery featuring Italian cuisine, influenced by Thai, Indian and Japanese flavours. As an after-dinner walk, you can marvel at Pigneto’s murals or end the night in one of the lively district’s bars.


Rome's restaurants cater to all tastes. There are American steakhouses, Lebanese meze restaurants, Vietnamese eateries, and several haute cuisine establishments celebrated in the Michelin Guide. But when in Rome, do as the Romans do and choose the less extravagant restaurants and trattorias for a memorable and authentic dining experience. The Italian word for dinner, "cena", comes from the Latin convivium, which means "live together". Eating is a social get-together which consists of at least three courses — often even at lunchtime. The Romans do not eat dinner until nine in the evening. Rome is known for its Carbonara (made with egg, guanciale, hard cheese, and black pepper) and Amatriciana (made with guanciale, pecorino Romano and tomatoes).
