Travellers will be pleasantly surprised to find a Michelin-starred restaurant and various offerings from the city’s top chefs at Rome Fiumicino airport. But for those who prefer some tasty street food like Ariccia porchetta or pizza, the options won’t disappoint either; here’s an airport that will send you off in gastronomic style.
The days of eating just a quick sandwich when waiting at the airport are behind us. Today, the gastronomic options at international airports have become increasingly more refined, and an integral part of the trip – either on board, in the lounge, or when making a stopover. The wait is no longer boring wasted time, but an opportunity to explore your taste buds, trying some typical dishes or simply making the most of a quick dining experience.
In the last year at Rome Fiumicino airport, this trend has materialised with the opening of several restaurants that bear the signature of the great chefs of the capital. Starting with “the King of Carbonara”Antonello Colonna, then three Michelin-starred Heinz Beck, along with Christina Bowerman, and even Alfio Ghezzi from Trentino with the Ferrari Sparkling Trento DOC space. You don’t have much time and you just want a slice of pizza? You can’t go wrong with the street food here.
After the three Michelin-star restaurant La Pergola in Rome, Chef Beck has taken on this new challenge: fast food combined with high quality cuisine, featuring timed menus of 30, 45 or 60 minutes, depending on how long a passenger’s wait is before the flight (but with a takeaway option, too). Menu options are mostly lighter, Mediterranean fare.
Starred chef Antonello Colonna’s bistro is an all-you-can-eat buffet, for a quick lunch that doesn’t detract from the pleasure of sitting at the table for just €20. The menu features his great classics like his take on carbonara known as “the negativo”, cacio cheese and pepper pasta, potato croquettes and oxtail stew. If you didn’t get to visit his restaurant in Rome, here’s your last chance!

Assaggio takes you on a food and wine tour to discover the best regional Italian wines and holds a fish bar with table service where you can taste the dishes from starred chef Cristina Bowerman. On the menu: the classic fried egg 65°, mozzarella di bufala from Campana and potato, mezze maniche pasta stuffed with romesco sauce, mozzarella water and almonds, avocado al quadrato, trout, pink peppercorns, tomatoes, and sesame seeds.
Ferrari wine bar, the best-known brand for the Classic Method Trento DOC where you can drink a glass of bubbly combined with dishes designed by the two Michelin starred chef from Trentino, Alfio Ghezzi. The menu serves modern, lightweight dishes, cooked with the highest quality ingredients. In the morning, you’ve got three types of breakfasts to choose from: typical Italian, continental and “healthy”.

Rome (and Italy in general) serves up good quality, rustic, traditional food. Thus, it only makes sense that you’ll find it at the airport, too. Look for options from known eateries that have established their own grab & go branches at Fiumicino.
