Description: Salone Margherita Theatre was born in 1898 in the heart of Rome. The name...
Salone Margherita Theatre was born in 1898 in the heart of Rome. The name Margherita was a clear homage to Margherita of Savoia, King Umberto's first wife. Here typical vaudeville shows were presented to flaunt more luxury and refinement than in any theatre in Rome. In the '10s, the best comedians and the most searched soubrettes of the age appeared in the playbill of the theatre and, throughout the past century, it has been a theater attached to the revue, Roman comedy, vaudeville show and operetta. Since 2011 I Virtuosi dell'opera di Roma performed here an important part of their Concert's Season.

Oh poor Julie M ! Her experience does not match ours in any way. We arrived early, had reasonably priced drinks, with little sandwiches, in the reception before being shown to our 'box' upstairs. It did take a couple of minutes to sort out seating for 4 as all were set up for 2s but this was done quickly and... More

What a wonderful place to spend an evening in Rome, a little taste of what life there was like in the recent past. A beautiful theatre, (go for middle stalls and get there early to snag a seat with a table near the bar) extremely friendly staff and reasonably priced quality drinks. A must do.

I saw La Traviata in April 2014, and again in San Paola Entra le Mura this March. Some of the cast were the same, but Salone Margherita is so homely. Not at all the pretentious opera crowd you get in Ireland, and they QUEUED ORDERLY for a drink at the interval. And the crowning moment - they give out free... More

If you enjoy live performance then I highly recommend the Teatro Salone Margherita. We saw The Barber of Saville performed by i Virtuosi Dell'opera di Roma and it was great. Actors were of a high quality and all at some stage showed a bit of comdeic flare, keeping the play lively and interactive; even walking through and performing in the... More

The entire experience was just ridiculous. Having prebooked tickets for the opera with box and dinner we were very excited to attend. However our excitement soon turned to dismay and quickly disbelief as events unfolded. To begin we were told to arrive at 7.30 for the dinner option, but by ticket administrators we wer told to wait in a freezing... More

We went here to see La Traviata here and were very surprised by the lovely old traditional theatre. Were a bit puzzled that we were not given seat numbers as we are use to in the UK but there was nothing to be concerned about as there was plenty of space, The seats were comfortable and we had a great...

We saw the performance of La Traviata at Teatro Salone Margherita in Rome in September 2014. The theater was small, beautiful, and historic. We did not opt for the dinner ticket however the pasta that was served at intermission was scrumptious and unusual. I have never been to a live performance where food was served at intermission. The theater was... More

My family and I enjoyed an evening of dinner theater type opera performance of "Barbieri di Seviglia". We took the box seat with dinner. The dinner was better than I anticipated, but the seat was actually poor with limited view. Any of the orchestra seats should be better than the box seats. The singers were generally good and the small... More

What a great little opera theatre located near The Spanish Steps. We saw The Barber of Saville which seemed perfect for this boutique small theatre. The performer were good, enjoyed their work and even engaged with the audience. For € 35 per head I head including a plate of pasta at interval what more could you want. The staff were... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
