I'm ashamed to give you this info, but...
Dal Bolognese in Piazza del Popolo, I think.

According to http://tinyurl.com/y98rzl it was Nino's.

There is a review here on Fodor's.

I have no experience with it myself, but I met a couple in Rome over Christmas who had gone to Nino's. They were from LA and used to fine dining, and it had been recommended by a friend they trusted. They were very disappointed with Nino's.

I THINK that Dal Bolognese is the restaurant that catered his actual wedding at the castle.

The Nino restaurant is where they had their pre wedding dinner with guests.

Hey O,

Before you get all excited, read the reviews.

If you are motivated to visit a restaurant because a celebrity chose to eat there, I suspect the quality of the food is of little consequence to you.

Nino's is not a "fancy" restaurant; it is a basic upscale trattoria with a Tuscan orientation and is close to the Spanish Steps. I would not go out of my way to eat there but would certainly try it if you are in that area, which is not exactly rich in good moderately priced places to eat. Just be aware that if you go before 9:30pm, you will be sharing the place with your fellow tourists. If you have to eat there, lunch is probably a better bet; make sure to reserve in advance.

I'll bet there were many reasons Cruise and Co. chose the restaurant they did. Probably mostly having to do with security and willingness of the restaurant to cater to the stars, its accessibility, and less to do with the food.
