I am always interested in finding great lunch spots in Rome, and Tiepolo is definitely one of them. NOT offering your basic Italian fare, this eatery has a large selection of salads, stuffed potatoes, quiches, and cheeses. I love coming here for a light lunch, but it’s also great for dinner.
Everything that is served at Tiepolo is very fresh, and made right on the spot: you can tell because peering into the kitchen is very easy, and it never takes more than ten minutes to get your meal. There are also seasonal specials offered daily, in addition to the multi-paged menu. I go mainly for the salads, but looking around the restaurant, many go for the stuffed potatoes with the special skagen sauce (shrimp, dill, and yogurt). And since the food at Tiepolo isn’t very heavy, I always have room for dessert, and let me tell you, the desserts are very tasty!
The restaurant itself is decorated in a very cute and simple way, with interesting posters donning the walls. When it’s nice outside, they also offer outdoor seating. But when it’s really hot out, I prefer to sit inside in their air conditioned room.
Because of its location, in Parioli right off the 2 tram, it’s a great eatery for pre/post Maxxi Museum visiting.
