Krishna 13 is the restaurant I rave about whenever someone tells me there are no good ethnic restaurants in Rome. “I know one!! Do you like Indian food? I promise it’s amazing!” is always my first response. My enthusiasm is effusive because I’ve been in that position, enduring the disappointment of lack of variety of different cuisines in Rome. Slowly though, dining options in the city are expanding, and Krishna 13 tops my list.
As someone passionate about both traveling and eating, I consider myself somewhat of a connoisseur of ethnic cuisine and can affirm that Krishna 13 has top-level Indian food, a welcome surprise for Rome. The restaurant has an extensive menu to satisfy any craving and offers specialties of all regions of India – meat, fish, and vegetarian. As a vegetarian I really love the samosas, vegetable korma and palak paneer. Everything is carefully prepared, presented, and reasonably priced.
The décor is also stylish and enhances the whole atmosphere – it is dimly lit, with carved dark wood furniture, stylish silverware and in a spacious, airy setting; it is very Indian and yet modern. Another bonus: located right off Piazza Vittorio, it is easily accessible by metro and close to Termini station.
