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.

Let's begin. We are not opera buffs. However when in Rome... This was very much a spur of the moment decision, but very much worth it. We chose a box with dinner included. The theatre is intimate and beautifully proportioned. As this was last minute only one box was free, closest to the stage. Not the best view but you... More

The theatre is delightful, quite small and intimate, beautifully decorated. Our ticket included a buffet, which was perfectly adequate but go for the more expensive box with dinner for the gourmet option. The singing was excellent, set was minimal but it's a small stage. Costumes and dancers were marvellous. It worked perfectly well. Violets' acting was a bit wooden but... More

We saw LaTraviata in this beautiful dinner theater. We chose to have the buffet which was really not a buffet. We had a choice of 2 different dishes. Both were decent. The show itself felt a little amateurish. The costumes were beautiful, but the set was lacking as were some of the actors. I was hoping for something a little... More

My wife Penny and I visited Teatro Salone Margharita on our trip to Rome in June 2016. We had a 4/5 course dinner in a private box overlooking the stage. Two Courses were served prior to the show starting and the main courses served during the interval. The desert and coffee we served after the final curtain. The theatre itself... More

We saw an advertisement near the Pantheon for La Traviata, my favorite opera, at this theater and got tickets same day. I was immediately in awe of the gorgeous setting and decor of this historic theater. The food was delicious, which came included in our ticket price of $35. It was a small production of the opera but they performed... More

We were able to see La Traviata in wonderful setting. We were expecting to just see singers doing highlights but instead saw the entire opera. The settings were great and we had a table that allowed us to have wine and a small buffet that was part of the ticket price. It was very reasonable and quality entertainment. I strongly... More

Booked the day before the show at the box office in this wonderful Victorian theatre for La Traviata, having not been to an opera before. Tickets were good value at 35 euros that included something to eat before the show ( just a small serving of pasta or cold rice dish ). The bar was reasonably priced although being served... More

We had booked in advance through classictic, which told us that we should arrive at 7pm for a 7.30 start. On arriving at c. 7.05, we were told fairly brusquely that nothing would happen until 7.30, and that we should have a drink in the entry hall. We were eventually allowed in at c. 7.45. The prospective audience was not... More

By chance we took one of the fliers given out by street people for this show. We looked at it and decided it was worth a try 2 days later. I booked by the internet and the box seats were already sold out so we settled for orchestra seats and the brief buffet dinner offered before the performance. The dinner... More

A fantastic way to spend an evening in Rome. We thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and performance of La Traviata. The 5 course meal was perfectly balanced (portion size) and sensibly spread through the evening. Their last minute adjustment for my gluten free requirements was much appreciated and very tasty. The theatre is quite something and worth a look even without... 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.
