Owned by the three Troiani brothers, it comprises four recently renovated rooms. Four different environments, vaulted ceilings, dark parquet and table linens with a modern twist.

    Imàgo, the panoramic restaurant of the Hassler Hotel, is located in Piazza della Trinità dei Monti. Positioned atop the majestic staircase near Piazza di Spagna, its panoramic windows provide a stunning view of Rome at night. The restaurant holds one Michelin star, and here traditional flavours are artfully reimagined with inventive flair, featuring dishes that evolve with the seasons. Curated by the head sommelier Alessio Bricoli, the wine list starts with options by the glass and half bottles, and some pages later you'll find a big selection of Champagnes and even a dedicated chapter to Dom...

    Address: Via dei Prefetti, 15, Roma

    Gianfranco Achilli opened this restaurant in the 1970s, and it is located right behind the Italian Parliament. This explains the name. At the entrance, the display of wine bottles in the shop and bistro immediately emphasizes the focus of the place: His Majesty, the Wine. The lunch menu here is more informal and approachable, yet equally refined. Just over twenty seats, with an interior with wood, leather, mirrors and bottles. The kitchen is entrusted to the good Pierluigi Gallo, who joined Achilli after gaining experience in several Michelin-starred kitchens. He showcases his ambition here,...

    Address: Via d'Ascanio, 26A, Roma

    Retrovino is somewhat of a sequel to the already-established Retrobottega restaurant, with which it is physically connected. However, Retrovino operates as a wine bar. They share the same minimalist and essential design aesthetic, as well as a commitment to high quality. The venue is very small yet comfortable and elegant, though some clients may not fully appreciate the social table and stools. Here, the menu is simpler yet always tasty and creative, still showcasing preparation skills. Regarding wine, there is a good selection available by the glass, and the wine list is shared with the res...

    Address: Via del Conservatorio, 58, Roma

    Rimessa Roscioli, a parallel project of the historic Salumeria Roscioli located a short walk away, is a welcoming and fun place where the main focus clearly is wine. Bottles line the walls, giving the impression that their stay on those shelves will be brief indeed. I love this area of ​​central Rome, bundled between Trastevere and Campo de' Fiori, with the picturesque Ponte Sisto in the middle providing a view of the Tiber Island. While the area is lively and frequented by tourists, Rimessa Roscioli is far from being a tourist trap. The menu is straightforward yet seasonal, offering a creati...

    Address: Piazza di Pasquino, 73, Roma

    Since the early 1900s, this place has been known as "Wines and Oils" to both locals and foreigners. However, since the 1970s, it has transformed, evolving into one of the capital's very first wine bars, conveniently located just a few steps from Piazza Navona. Today, it remains true to its origins, with the original marble butcher's counter still proudly displayed at the entrance, and it embraces its Roman identity by offering a menu centred around traditional specialities. The name itself, a clear nod to the venue's small and narrow dimensions, reflects its intimate atmosphere. The service is...

    Enoteca Verso is located just outside the centre of Rome, two steps from the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano. A vibrant and refined environment adorned with warm colours, stone and brick walls and shelves brimming with bottles, Verso offers an enticing and flavorful menu. With an array of appetizing aperitifs and traditional Roman first courses, there's something to satisfy every palate. The selection available by the glass comprises a few dozen bottles in constant rotation, but the true highlight is the extensive and well-organized wine list, boasting around a thousand references. While...

    Address: Via dei Banchi Vecchi, 14, Roma

    The street is that of Banchi Vecchi, right in front of the two-star Il Pagliaccio. This family-run wine temple has likely seen millions of bottles opened within its walls, recently celebrating 40 years of service. Sergio and Anna, the owners, have preserved the legacy of the previous establishment, a "Vini e Olio" that once specialized in selling food and bulk wine, and still features the banner in front of the venue. The atmosphere is also familiar, and lively, surrounded by shelves adorned with bottles and frequented by celebrities from the worlds of culture and entertainment, who often pop...
