Rome for Christmas Dinner

Jump to last reply

We will be in Rome for Christmas Day, and I'd love to make reservations at a restaurant that does a wonderful Christmas Dinner. Any thoughts?

    My wife & I were in Rome for Christmas last year and it was absolutely wonderful.

    Christmas eve we had a marvelous dinner at Sangello (68-65-549). All the other customers were Italian; the food couldn't be more authentic. It's near Piazza Navona. It's somewhat expensive but not outrageously so. Our bill, including a good wine, was $75.

    We then went straight to Midnight Mass at Santa Maria in Aracoeli, on the Capitoline Hill overlooking the Forum, lit by spotlights and a full moon. Gorgeous.The church ceremony was very moving and we felt welcomed even though we are not Catholic.

    We had been told that it would be very difficult to find an open restaurant on Christmas day ... although, many were closed, many remained open. We ate a big lunch at an OUTSIDE table at Codova Cafe in Pizaza Poppolo, walking there from St. Peters -- where we saw the pope; another moving ceremony.

    This was our third visit to rome. Here, as in al of italy, we've found that if the restaurant looks & smells good, it's going to be good. I calculate we've had over 200 meals in Italy and can only remember 1 that was disappointing.

    You are going to have a wonderful time. We wish we were going this year too,\.
