Where to eat in Rome with kids
If you’re looking for an oven baked pizza or fresh pasta, you’ve definitely come to the right place! Rome is filled with great restaurants on every street, but sometimes you need a restaurant that offers that little bit extra to keep your kids entertained. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here are our top 5 picks:
1. Vivi Bistrot
Via Vitellia, 102, 00152 Roma RM, Italy
+39 06 582 7540
Vivi Bistrot is situated in Villa Doria Pamphili, one of Rome’s most beautiful parks. It’s a popular choice for families due to its large selection of organic and healthy food. It’s a great spot to let your kids run around in the playground and you can choose whether to eat in the restaurant or pick up a picnic and eat in the park. It’s a real gem!
2. La Limonaia
Via Lazzaro Spallanzani, 1/A, 00161 Roma RM, Italy
+39 06 9506 5250
If you’re looking to escape the crowds, this restaurant is well worth a visit. It’s situated in a park which has both a playground and a museum! There should be something for everyone on the menu as it’s a restaurant and pizzeria. You can enjoy your meal on their outdoor terrace and when you’re done, the kids can run around the grounds.
Via del Portico d'Ottavia, 8, 00186 Roma RM, Italy
+39 06 6880 9771
Located in the Jewish quarter, this restaurant is great for kids. They are free to explore the area without their parents worrying as Taverna Del Ghetto is situated in a narrow road that is closed to cars. They serve classic Roman pastas which will always be a win with the kids, but be sure to try their fried artichokes - a speciality in the Jewish quarter. Probably a good thing they might not be to the kids taste - more for you!
Piazza Trilussa, 41, 00153 Roma RM, Italy
+39 06 5833 3920
This is a great restaurant for Sunday brunch with the family. Whilst you have brunch, they organise activities for the kids such as cooking lessons or telling a story in English (age 3+). Do we really need to say more?

Various locations around Rome
What list would be complete without giving a good gelato stop? Not only is this some of the tastiest gelato in Rome, but it’s all-natural ingredients. Double win if you ask us! Not only do they have the classic flavours kids love such as chocolate and vanilla, but they have some pretty out there flavours for those feeling daring. After all, who hasn’t dreamt of having a basil gelato? You’ll definitely find something to suit your palette here!
