Saving Rome's Restaurants

Our parent company is ProRome, LLC, a full-service Roman tour company. With the rise of the pandemic and the terrible economic devastation that accompanied it, ProRome launched Group Meals Rome. The goal of Group Meals Rome is to support the struggling restaurants of the Eternal City. See full story below.

Our Story

& Why We Love Rome

Roma is the most beautiful city in the world. Anyone who experiences Rome instantly falls in love. Here, unlike anywhere else in the world there is something special – something almost magical – going on.  

Some come to Rome for the history and art. Others come for reasons of religious belief. Still others come just to “see” Rome – to see if she lives up to her reputation as being “Eternal”.  Yet everyone who visits Rome – no matter their reason for coming in the first place – leaves with the same feeling. A feeling of awe – an inspiring and powerful feeling – to live life to the fullest. 

Why does this happen? It’s not just the incredible art, the soaring domes and lively squares. It is something more. We’re convinced that the fullness of the Roman way of life almost sheds itself on the visitor, and nowhere is this more obvious and beautiful than in the restaurants. The bustling restaurants of Bella Roma are her lifeblood – the very expression of her greatness and incredible approach to living a beautiful and happy life. Foreigners sense it, experience it, and then proceed to fall in love it. 

This incredible gift of Rome to her visitors was shattered by the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Many restaurants have closed their doors, some permanently, and others struggle to survive under the burgeoning weight of debt and less foot traffic. The pandemic will end, but the restaurants will need to fight to fix the economic wreckage that took place. We hope to help. 

Group Meals Rome is a meal-booking agency for groups of ten or more persons. Our network features some of Rome’s most authentic eateries, where three generations are running the kitchen and the floor staff is all related. When you book with us you are supporting fantastic restaurants who are sharing the gift of joy with the world.
