Rome Part 3: Il Margutta RistorArte

If ever you're looking for a really good vegetarian restaurant while in Rome, I would highly recommend Il Margutta RistorArte. Never have I seen a vegetarian restaurant as full as that, or popular. If memory serves me correctly, we waited approximately 20 to 25 minutes for a seat. We even had time to befriend an English tourist in the queue, who had a rather enviable travel itinerary and also lived in Spain. She left her friends behind, because they weren't vegetarian and she had heard how amazing this restaurant was. So, this place is talked about for sure it seems. For chit chat, we learnt so much about each other within 20 minutes. 

Waiters were running back and forth constantly and trying to accommodate everyone in the queue, but they were quite well composed, considering. It is on the pricier side, but they do have buffet options, which is more worth it in my opinion and the option we settled for. Unless of course you want the fine dining experience, then their menu is nothing short of options.

There is more than ample seating and some outside, but make sure not to go during peak meal times, as there will no doubt be a long queue.  But if you find yourself in a queue, well, you might make a friend.
