Format: Paperback
The annoying thing about the Time Out guide is that everything is listed thematically (Bars, Restaurants, Theatres, Galleries, etc), which means that when you are actually there, you spend a lot of time flicking about through chapters trying to find stuff relevant to the area you are in. Areas are also rather vaguely defined too, which doesn't make the task any easier. (Other guides tend to group things by area. Mostly when using a guide you want to get an overview of an area: what bars, restaurants, attractions there are; we found this sort of format much more user-friendly)
We went to a few recommended restaurants which were average at best. Friends in Rome took us to much better places: I'd expect Time Out to have more of an insiders' view. The lack of any sort of ratings system also made it hard to know exactly what sort of place you were going to: formal/informal, etc. Essentially I wasted a lot of time looking for recommendations when I was better following my instincts.
In mitigation, some of their historical/cultural information was reasonably accessible and readable, although often content is sacrificed in the attempt to maintain their trademark hipper-than-thou tone.

I'm quite a fan of the Time Out series when it comes to city guides. This guide to Rome was very good, we tried out some of the recommended restaruants and also found our hotel through this book, which was an excellent choice. The biggest complaint would probably be the maps.Sometimes it seemed to be a bit tricky to find what you were looking for.Also on a few occassions it appeared that eating places were not where the guide book said they would be or they were closed when the guide said they would be open for business.

I have been to Rome twice with this guidebook and had a fabulous time on both occasions. The restaurant recommendations are always spot on, as are the hotels. I've been to a number of museums and historical sights with it and been happy. Thanks to it I have some glorious memories of dining at amazing tucked-away places and went to art museums I might not otherwise have gone to. I find the Time Out guides help you avoid the tourist traps, especially when it comes to food!
