Taste of Roma

The second edition of the Taste of Roma festival takes place in the elevated gardens of the Auditorium. The capital's answer to Taste, the world's foremost restaurant festival, the four-day gourmet event showcases the best of Roman haute cuisine. Chefs from 12 of Rome's top restaurants will provide cooking demonstrations, while each restaurant offers three specials that epitomise their culinary philosophy, from €4-€6. The 36 different dishes on offer, from traditional Italian to typical Roman and regional, are presented alongside creative and experimental cuisine. Visitors can enjoy wine-tastings with sommeliers and public encounters with noted chefs, producers and food-bloggers, all within an informal, open-air atmosphere.
