1. Visit a romantic restaurant.
While this can be pricey, it is definitely worthwhile. Restaurants that are truly worth a visit include La Pergola, which is on the rooftop of the Cavalieri Hilton Hotel in Via Cadlolo; Zuma, a Japanese restaurant inside Palazzo Fendi Via Della Fontanella di Borghese, 48 and Antico Arco, which is near Trastevere. If you’re looking for a less expensive but just as romantic option, consider Ditirambo, which offers typical Italian food, wooden ceilings and raw bricks; Osteria Margutta, which is a delightful and quiet restaurant in the historic centre of Rome, near the Spanish Steps or Babette, which looks like a typical Italian house (Be sure to ask for a table in the romantic “Piazzetta Margutta”).
