L'Olimpo: "Wonderful Food, Magnificent View" Italy Restaurant Tip by Gone2Roma

Italy Restaurants: 272 reviews and 262 photos

This is a restaurant for a special occasion, or to comemmorate your last evening in Roma. Bring money; it is not inexpensive. Wine is served by the bottle only. The view of Roma at sundown in unforgettable as the restaurant sits atop the Hotel Bernini Bristol. The clientele tend to dress well for dinner, here. Men wore sports coats, etc. Not all had ties, but it would not be over the top.

Favorite Dish: I had fish (trout, as I recall). It was superb. The presentation is top-shelf. The wait staff are professionals in every respect. The appetizers were delicately delicious. The desserts were perfect. A wonderful sweetness that was only slightly larger than bite-size. The entire meal, soup-to-nuts, including the bottle of white wine was $160 U.S. Just me, a single diner. Was it worth it? Indeed, every penny. I will return during my next visit to Roma.

Address: Piazza Barberini, 23
Price Comparison: most expensive
Directions: At the bottom of the hill where the Via Vittorio Vaneta ends at the Piazza Barberini. 1500 metres from the Roma Termini (.9 miles). The website has a good map view. Easy enough to locate on Google Earth.
