If you are looking at organizing a romantic evening during your trip to Rome, you will have plenty of options to ponder.
In the city center is Aroma, very luxurious rooftop restaurant at Manfredi Hotel, (Palazzo Manfredi, 125 Via Labicana) with the delicious creations of chef Giuseppe Di Iorio and a truly unique view on the Colosseum to the extent that you will have the impression of being dining right inside the world famous ancient amphitheater.
If your idea of romantic dinner inevitably involves a great view, you will certainly like also the Zodiaco restaurant (88/92 Viale del Parco Mellini) in Monte Mario natural reserve, with a terrace offering a gorgeous view on the city. They serve Italian cuisine with a special devotion to Roman dishes and there are often cabaret and live music performances.
Another restaurant where you can have a romantic dinner is Il Picchio Rosso (101 Via Italo Piccagli), located in a quiet area that almost seems the countryside. Here too you can enjoy excellent fine seafood dishes listening to live music.
If you want to spend the rest of your romantic evening in Trastevere, you can have your romantic dinner in this same neighborhood in 24 Via del Moro at Bisque, specialized in fish and seafood courses but serving also meat-based dishes.
