Opera in Rome with Dinner

Most of our concerts and shows include a dinner option



Dinner and Opera in Rome

After the concert/show

After attending one of our concerts or shows you can enjoy the menu specifically dedicated to the Italian Opera that we have prepared in collaboration with the Zagara Restaurant. You have to walk only a few dozen meters and go to number 26 of the adjacent Via Paola.

In fact there is a substantial link between the Italian Opera and Italian Food. Just to mention a few examples, Gioacchino Rossini was very well known as a “gourmet” and a good chef himself, Giuseppe Verdi owned a farm in which he produced wine, and the famous Sicilian recipe of “Pasta alla Norma” owes its name to the opera “Norma” by Vincenzo Bellini.
