Description: The capital of Italy, it has been said that modern Rome has one foot in the past and one in the present, with 2,000-year-old relics beside ultra-glam fashions and society. We mirror that feeling at our Italian Hard Rock location with an upbeat modern feel, super cool Hard Rock merchandise and a veritable colosseum of rock 'n' roll memorabilia. Looking to enjoy good food and wine? Be proud to partake of the fine dining at our world-class restaurant, where you'll find not just amazing meals to fit every appetite, but also wide windows on the Roman world. Our Cafe is the ultimate spot for people watching, a quintessential part of Roman culture. So when in Rome, whether improving your wardrobe or seeking out la dolce vita, visit the Hard Rock Cafe Rome for everything an emperor would desire (chariot not included).

“Great service, good vibe.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Dont know if we got lucky or other reviwers were unlucky but had a really positive experience at the Hard Rock Cafe Rome at the end of Feb. Took the advice of other TA reviewers and booked a table the day before for our party of four. Arrived 15 minutes early at the same time as two large parties of 20+ so wasnt confident of getting seated at our time or getting decent service. Fortunately was wrong on both accounts, got seated spot on our reservation time, our waiter, 'Franco the Fox' was great, drinks and food orders taken promptly, all the food arrived hot and well prepared and Franco topped all our soft drinks up three times without prompting. We ordered a platter to start for the table, a couple of legendary burgers, nachos and a salad. All were huge as described in other reviews and not one dish was finished off.
Atmosphere was really buzzing in the cafe, lots of youngsters and family groups. We came for our daughters birthdays near the end of a six day trip and to be honest by that point a burger and fries were a welcome break from pasta and pizza. Everyone knows what to expect from the HRC and the Rome branch delivered a good experience for my group with great service and well prepared food.

“Average HRC”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013 via mobile

This was by far one of the top priciest HRC's I have ever visited. It made my wife gasp so it must be expensive. Staff was responsive and friendly. We arrived just before 12pm and there was plenty of seating, within five minutes it was slammed. We both got pulled pork sandwiches. Serving size was good, the mustard sauce was a little too mustardy but otherwise okay.

“Ignorant staff”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 via mobile

Very uncomfortable visit. Walked a long way to get there and even though the drink prices are expensive still wanted to treat ourselves to a cocktail. People sat all around the bar, barman chatting to some fellow Italians. Was trying to lean over an unoccupied seat because there wasn't a space. Barman didn't even acknowledge my prescence, no eye contact, no just hold on a few minutes, he wasn't doing anything really. In the end we walked out. If you're going to visit a Hard Rock Cafe none live up to the one in Florida so I simply shan't bother anymore. First impression of this in HR Cafe in Rome definitely left the wrong impression.

“Burgers in Rome”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

It was awesome to order and have a great tasting burger just to have a change of pace from the Italian cuisine.
