Presumably you will be out and about in Rome and not limiting yourself to the area around your hotel for meals.

Give an idea of what you want to eat and how much you want to spend. Food blogs are great sources for this.

Start with parlafood.com for great restaurant advice. There's also a poster here called Wine Gal who has her own food blog and hopefully she'll come along.

I'll throw in Colline Emiliane and Flavio al Velavevodetto in the Testaccio area.

Reason for request was twofold - looking for restaurant near hotel for arrival night, and because of allergy issues of grandson. Also failed to mention both adults are gluten free. Will check out your suggestions. Thanks.

Your hotel is pretty far from the center of Rome, so your restaurant choices are not abundant in the vicinity of the hotel. There's a restaurant within a ten minutes' walk from your hotel that specializes in gluten-free cooking. It's called Il Viaggio, at Via Isonzo, 14. I don't know how competent they are to deal with your grandson's food allergies, but gluten-free restaurants are usually sensitive to allergies. What sorts of allergies does your grandson have?

Italy has a high rate of celiac disease, so even many ordinary restaurants are able to offer some gluten-free choices. The Italian term for "gluten free" is "senza glutine (GLOO-tee-nay)". If the adults have celiac disease, they have to avoid even the slightest contamination with flour in the kitchen, but if it's just a sensitivity, then rice dishes, usually in the form of risotto, are usually a good choice.
