A splendid winter garden in the middle of the Roman San Saba district, situated just a few minutes from the Colosseum and from the Orange Trees Garden. In the centre of Rome but with an International atmosphere, like the one you might feel when in Paris or in New York. Natural light filtering through the glass roof and the green climbing plants decorating the hall create a warm and informal setting.
This is a local spot on Aventino hill. The Marco Martini cocktail bar takes its name from the renowned chef at the restaurant/hotel, who, at 24 years old, was awarded his first Michelin star. It isn’t his only Michelin star, let’s just say that.
Marco Martini defines cuisine in three words: eyes, stomach, head – it is memories of flavours from bygone days that provide the impetus for his own creations. He is certainly not lacking in curiosity or a willingness to try new things, as he shows in his modern, imaginative dishes, each of which have their own story to tell, inspired by memories and emotions. The wine list is also intriguing, with a selection of little-known yet interesting labels from small producers appearing alongside more famous names. The dining room recalls a winter garden with a mix of styles, plus there’s a terrace-cum-lounge for aperitifs, imaginative cocktails and snacks. The gourmet menu is also available at lunchtime if you book ahead.
