Beautiful view of the dome over St. Peter's Basilica. Great food, fantastic service. The extra "surprises" given by the chef were delightful.

First, the meat tasting menu was superb. We enjoyed it more than the dinner the previous evening at a 2 Michelin Star restaurant. Second, the setting is bizarre. There is no ambiance. You’re eating a 95 euro per person tasting menu in a hotel bar...More

Not much to say. Booked this weeks before our holiday to Rome. Received the attached email a few hours before we were due to arrive cancelling the reservation. No apology, no explanation, no offer of another time, no respect for the customer. Don't bother.

posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and

cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the

Description
Overlooking the gardens of the Villa Borghese, the beautiful park of the Villa Medici, with the backdrop of the Dome of St. Peter's Basilica, La Terrasse Cuisine & Lounge offers a breathtaking view of the 'Eternal City'. Ideal atmosphere for a moment of pure relaxation, it becomes the perfect place for an aperitif, an event, a business lunch, a candlelight dinner. Ingredients selected from the nearby Roman countryside, love of Italian and French traditions and constant innovation are the characteristics that distinguish the cuisine of the Executive Chef Giuseppe D'Alessio. His menu becomes a triumph of Mediterranean flavors and aromas. Il menu dello Chef è un trionfo di sapori e profumi mediterranei.
