We decided to eat at the Hard Rock Cafe in Rome one evening. The Hard Rock cafes are fairly standard world wide. It's an American food menu and drinks with lots of music memorabilia decorating the walls. The food is plentiful and good and the wait staff is usually pretty upbeat. The HRC Rome has a nice feature, a painted ceiling in the main bar/restaurant area. The music is prominent but not quite too loud to carry on a conversation. We had a shared starter, southwest style spring rolls and they were quite tasty. I chose from something healthy and had salmon while my partner had a burger and we were both really happy with the results. It was all cooked to perfection. Our server was great! He even took requests for music since we felt it wasn't "hard rock" enough and the person in charge of the music played what we asked for and came over later to see if we wanted anything else. As i said, the food was very good and the prices, while not cheap, were not as expensive as I expected but then HRC isn't a cheap place and you're buying the name as much as the food. You get plenty and could share many of the items on the menu. There's a dining area in the front where the bar is and there's a dining room in the back area as well. There is of course the shop where you can buy your Hard Rock souvenirs. which are expensive. It's easy to find. From the Barberini Metro, head up Via Vittorio Veneto and it's just a block or two up that street.
