Restaurant for Wedding reception in Rome

It is a casual restaurant. We had done CDs for the music for our reception but I believe we could have had live music.

Have a look on their website http://www.cantinadelvecchio.it/defau... for an idea of the size of the place. (click on the scrolling picture

My advice to anyone planning a wedding in Rome is to visit AT LEAST ONCE to check out the places you are considering and most importantly sample the food as some of the ones we had considered prior to visiting (mainly from guidebook / internet research) were very quickly ruled out once in Rome and seeing the place / sampling the food.

Hello all,

Just an update:

We had an excellent wedding reception for 37 people (exclusive hire of the restaurant) at

Cantina del Vecchio,
Via dei Coronari, 30
http://www.cantinadelvecchio.it/

Food, wine and service all excellent and would definitely recommend.

Hello,

We are off to Rome on Saturday for a few days to check out some places - including some of the places mentioned by people here (many thanks everyone for your help).

I am still open to suggestions for restaurants before I go !

We are using a planner as the legal stuff would have been tricky to do without being in Rome we also are using them to do the translation at the ceremony. They are also arranging the photographer and cars for the day.

We are planning on arranging the reception ourselves but this may well change!

Hello,

We decided early on we didnt want to use a hotel restaurant as the ones we saw on the internet and in books were a bit too large we thought for a party of 40. We also quite fancied the idea of a small restaurant for that authentic Italian feel.

Cost is also an issue - we are paying for this ourselves so didnt want to spend an absolute fortune getting our friends well fed and drunk ;-)

We are continuing our search for that ideal place and are off to Rome in a few weeks time to do some research. I am hoping my wedding planner is at the moment trying to compile a list for us!

I must have bought every guide book and looked at every restaurant review site over the past few weeks - I think I am going slightly mad!

Good luck for the wedding in May

:-)

We are getting married in the Wedding hall at Terme di Caracalla (Viale Terme di Caracalla, 52, Rome, 153)

Not too bothered about location as long as its relatively central.

Many thanks.

Restaurant for Wedding reception in Rome

I am getting married in Rome at the end of May 2007 and I am looking for a suitable restaurant for the wedding reception.

There will be 40 of us and we are looking for something that will offer good local food and good local wine. But not something that is stupidly expensive. Most of all we want an authentic Italian atmosphere.

Can anyone help?

Many thanks.
