This stylish eatery—part lively Parisian bistro, part cocktail bar—is your best bet for scoring a good meal within eyeshot of the Colosseum. Diners lounge on caramel-colored leather banquettes and choose from a diverse menu that mixes Roman classics such as carbonara (pasta with cured pork, egg, and cheese) with inventive Continental fare or more familiar dishes—like an 18€ hamburger. Desserts are Instagram-worthy affairs. After dark, confident bartenders shake up Propaganda’s signature cocktails. Service is relaxed by North American standards, so only eat here if you have time to linger.
