Where to Eat in Rome in August

Written by Katie Parla on July 25, 2023

Salumeria Roscioli Carbonara | Katie ParlaUPDATED FOR 2023: Visiting Rome in August used to mean eating badly or seldom, but things have changed in recent years (including due to the covid crisis…places just can’t afford to close) and now gastronomic-minded visitors need not compromise. Some great restaurants in Rome will be open for most of the month, so whether you want fine dining, the city’s best gricia, tasty pizza, or some down-home offal, you won’t be disappointed.

Please note, these openings have been updated for 2023. They were accurate when published. Still, be sure to confirm openings before turning up. And be sure to book well in advance and bear in mind that August 15 (The Feast of the Assumption aka Ferragosto) is a national holiday and most (but not all!) businesses citywide will be closed. Latteria in Trastevere, one of my favorite wine bars, is open all month long, including Ferragosto. Meanwhile some other favorites like Cesare al Casaletto and Himalaya Palace are open throughout the month of August, only shutting on their regular closing day (Wednesday and Monday, respectively).
