I Colori del Vino

:: Rome : Via Veneto
The pace is very relaxed at this lovely, recently redecorated enoteca situated a few blocks from the American embassy. Choose from a discerning list of wines by the glass, pick a bottle from the shelves, or go with a bottle recommended by the knowledgable staff. A small but very enticing selection of Italian and French formaggi and salumi beckons from the glass case at the bar (there is even Spanish pata negra ham). The calm, grown-up atmosphere is perfect for relaxed conversation.

Aurora 10 da Pino Il Sommelier

:: Rome : Via Veneto
A seriously old-school Roman seafood restaurant, complete with black and white photos of 1950’s celebrities. (Several members of the staff look as though they have been working here since then.) Pino himself seems to have lost none of his energy for running a very tight ship with a lot of personality. We took his recommendation for a seafood salad antipasto, and it was gorgeous. Their spaghetti con vongole is one of the best I’ve had.

:: Rome : Auditorium-Parioli
Fresh, colorful, Sicilian-style seafood that will take your breath away. If you are a fan of raw fish and they are offering a carpaccio antipasto special, do not miss it. Order a bottle of wine from the distinctive Donnafugata winery, and spend the rest of the evening going “Mmmmmmmmm…”

Our neighborhood standby. The staff may be a bit cold, but the food is always great, and they are always open. Many a Sunday evening finds us at Rossini for our final food fling of the weekend! My favorite place for spaghetti alle vongole. Open every day.
