Zuma Palazzo Fendi

Zuma is located on the rooftop of Palazzo Fendi and it is one of the main restaurants for all who look for a good asiatic food. The room faces via del Corso and looks at Trinità dei Monti, enjoying a view like few other venues in the centre of Rome. Thanks to a young and competent service you will spend quite a pleasant experience. At table, there will be food to share which well interpretes the Japanese ingredients and techniques. Here, the robatayaki plays a leading role: the show carbon grill prepares tasty pork belly skewers with yuzu mustard, lamb chops, beef jerky with soy sauce, garlic, ginger and green pepper. The is no shortage of sushi and sashimi while delicious desserts complete the dinner. The wine list is excellent and there is a wide selection of saké.

La Pergola

Measure and balance are the most representative words for this splendid restaurant starting from its luxury and elegant spaces but not too formal. The staff is composed of young members, who are always efficient, polite and careful but never intrusive. However, a blazer is required for men even though it is just a foresight for all who are willing to try Heinz Beck’s creations. Here, sapidity, combinations, precise cooking, texture and even the aesthetic of the dish come close to perfection in the kitchen. It is not exception the selection of cheese from all over Italy, the water, tea and infusion lists. The wine list is a world in itself, a huge space with thousands of references from all across the globe.

Metamorfosi

The colombian Roy Caceres is one of the most interesting chefs of the local and national panorama. The ability to combine his sudamerican education with all the experiences developed in Italy is the result of a personal sensitivity and an impeccable technical mastery too. This is embodied in the fact that the kitchen staff follows perfectly the chef in the realization of each plate. Also the staff of the front of house is a close-knit team, able to introduce the courses and Caceres philosophy without never falling into excess. The wine cellar is wide and the service is satisfactory. The classics proposed by the chef are always of absolute value, desserts included. Lastly, the bread made at the in-house laboratory is quite impressive.

Imago

Impeccable and friendly with a touch of style, the service is always punctual and is never lacking of smile even at the most demanding enquiries of the clients. In the kitchen there is Andrea Antonini, a young and promising chef with an outstanding CV. Beside him we find a young staff committed to keeping the high standards of Hassler. The menu is wide and tasty, while the wine cellar guarantees several labels and its service is among the most efficient and centered. It is such a rare emotion to have Rome just underneath.

Idylio by Apreda

Francesco Apreda allows customers who love his cuisine to enjoy one of the most beautiful views of Rome. The terrace is located within a luxury hotel where it feels like you can almost touch the spiral lamp of Borromini and the Pantheon roof. In this unique universe made of domes you will enjoy the atmosphere and the chef’s cuisine among pizza, pasta and well mixed drinks. Further down, at street level, a few steps ahead of the hotel entrance there is the restaurant. The room is pink decorated with white and black contrasts. Here at Idylio, you will taste dishes dedicated to Rome or rooted in the chef creativity. Finally, an interesting ‘run down’ of desserts while the wine cellar is daily enriched by new labels. One of the most luxury places and highly favoured in the city.

Pascucci al Porticciolo

Gianfranco Pascucci is a passioned chef and advocate of the sea and its coast which has seen him grow. At table, there are those salty scents, the freshness and the authentic taste that only the sea gives us. All this it is expressed in refined artistic dishes, original and centered in flavour. The raw seafood is unmissable together with some classics, then the experimentations of the chef let you explore a new marine world. There are two tasting menus: one is focused on classics, the other one is more structured. Needless to say, all the products are excellent: only wild-caught fish, 0 km vegetables and home made bread by Gabriele Bonci. The service is accurate and the wine cellar is wide and well organized, ranging from Italy and France. It is possible to stay overnight and enjoy a nice cocktail from the enchanting terrace.

Enoteca La Torre

Refined location for Enoteca la Torre, located within a Liberty villa which belonged to Fendi. Here, the room style and its aristocratic decorations make it a place for “special occasions”. In the kitchen we find Domenico Stile, a young and talented chef from Campania, who prepares precious and fresh dishes with a mediterranean touch. There are two tasting menus: “excursion”, a surprise five course meal and “eyes closed experience” of seven courses. The service is accurate and the wine cellar is varied with both italian and international references. Another showpiece of the house is the pastry not to be missed

Winexperience

The experience

  • guest reception: company presentation and history.
  • walking tour through the vineyards in contact with nature.
  • guided visit to wineries and cellars
  • tasting of the most representative wines with selection of typical local products.

Marco Carpineti

The winery is located in Capo Le Mole and Casale, in Cori, an ancient small town in the south of Rome dating back to 4 century BC. It has belonged to the same family for generations. Situated on the slopes of Lepini Mountains, it is well indicated for olive and vine cultivation. Success comes from their wine and organic oil indeed.

Damiano Ciolli

Since the company was founded in 2001, the name of Damiano Ciolli has always been linked with the one of Cesanese of Olevano Romano. Damiano has indeed collected the fruits of four generations of winemakers. Also urged by the quality of the grapes coming from a old vineyard owned.

Omina Romana

In 2004 the german Anton Borner invested in a vineyard in Velletri, Colli Albani area, to produce high quality wines with a pure international
approach. The characteristics of the area (volcanic soil and constant sea breezes) ensure a high quality production.

San Giovenale

Emanuele Pangrazi’ s winery is entirely sustainable with roof gardens, ventilated walls and geothermal temperature control. The vines planted are international instead. This intuition has been a proven success as it has also allowed the cultivation of the similar Valle del Rodano’s.

Antica Cantina Leonardi

Leonardi’s winery was born at the beginning of the last century and offers wines that are connected with its tradition. The owned vineyards
are divided between two wineries. The first one is located on volcanic and tufaceous lands, surrounding Bolsena lake. The other one is
located in Graffignano, on the border with Umbria region upon a highland which dominates over the valley of Tevere.

Cantina Sant’ Andrea

Terracina muscat wine represents quite a particular local variety from which are obtained wines of perfumes and taste slightly different from those ones in white muscat- based wines. This winery is given credit as it has contributed to save this variety from extinction.

Casata Mergé

Manlio Mergè begun his activity of winemaker during the first half of the twentieth century at the border between Frascati and Monte Porzio
Catone. Perfect cradle for the cultivation of local vineyards over the centuries. Today, Luigi Mergè, who relies on the help of his sons Massimiliano, Marco, and daughters Mariabeatrice and Marianna, produces top quality wines offspring of tradition.

Casale Del Giglio

Looking at big numbers of production together with high quality (company top sellers as well as every day wines), just a few wineries can compete
with one fom Latina. The production is not only focused on international vines but also on locals and its territory.

Falesco Famiglia Cotarella

The Cotarella family is always confirmed at the top of the area’s viticulture. The company created by the brothers Renzo and Riccardo and now managed by their daughters stands on the volcanic soils on the border between Lazio and Umbria: on the one hand the favorable climate of the hills south of Orvieto, while it is Lake Bolsena that acts as a backdrop for the vineyards company historians.

Poggio Le Volpi

Poggio le Volpi, as a company born in 1996 by Felice Mergè, represents one of the major wineries of Castelli Romani. Over the years, the
grapes used for the different labels have become almost exclusively locals as much for whites (among which the Frascatis stand out) as for reds, result of a new Nero Buono in purity for Castelli Romani.

Castello Torre In Pietra

The building of Tenuta di Torre in Pietra dates back to the middle age when at that time wine and cereals were produced already . We can find one of the most important agricultural centers of roman countryside within the medieval hamlet of Torre in Pietra. It is located next to the tower from which the hamlet and the winery take the name. In 1999 it renovates the cellar, and ever since has used the most modern technologies and is a gorgeous location for private events.
