Eating in ruins

Recently hit with this request.

My answer: Da Pancrazio (basement has ruins of Pompey's theater) and Taverna Ulpia (overlooking Trajan's forum and built into Trajan's basilica Ulpia -- ruins in basement). Does anyone have any other interesting places in which to dine among ruins?

London, United...

I think a picnic with vino in the Baths of Caracalla on a fine day would be wonderful (plenty of benches) Tabby.

Yes, we sat right next to the travertine remnant of the Temple of Aesculapius. Ancient structures in all directions.

I once had a great picnic by myself in the Aqueduct Park, just sitting on one of the footings of the Claudian aqueduct.

Definitely Da Pancrazio's: but I think they only serve dinner in the ancient basement. Try to ask for it, even if you are for the lunch.
