Giolitti ice-cream parlour
Giolitti is one of the most famous (and popular) places to get gelato in Rome. Buying gelato is always a great idea when travelling with kids, but Giolitti will be one of the best, with waiters in their old fashioned white and gold brocade, and creamy flavours that change with every season.
Taverna del Ghetto
This is a great little restaurant that is located in Rome's Jewish ghetto, right in the centre of Rome. The Taverna is located in a pedestrian only area so it is a good place for kids to explore once they have finished their tasty fried morsels and classic Italian pasta dishes.
Briciole Favole & Co.
If your kids have not yet had enough pizza to last them a lifetime, take them to Briciole Favole & Co. This is a pizzeria located in the suburbs of Rome, and it is a restaurant targeted at kids.

The ViVi Bistrot is one of the best places to eat in Rome if your kids need a break from sightseeing.

Fresh bread and pastries are always a hit with kids in Italy!
Hostaria Buccilli is another great family-friendly restaurant to come to if the kids (or you) need a break. This restaurant is located in the northern suburbs of Rome, and there is a garden where running around and playing soccer are encouraged.
