Child-friendly restaurants

Romans eat out a lot and they are accustomed to taking their children with them, including in the evenings. Almost all – with the exception perhaps of top-end fine dining establishments – are happy to serve kids and usually have high chairs and other equipment available.

We are currently developing this section. Please let us know if you have any recommendations for child-friendly restaurants or cafés in Rome.
