This is the best restaurant in Rome in my opinion (as of fall 2016). My husband and I ate at three Michelin star restaurants on a recent trip and this was by far the most refined in food, service, wine list and decor. It was also thankfully devoid of a tourist-only crowd. The vibe in the restaurant reminded us a... More

It's difficult to find anything wrong with either the food, the wine list or the staff. The staff is really good as expected in such restaurant: All professional and friendly. The sommelier was impressive and all wines recommended with the food where perfect matches. The wine list is just impressive. Not only good Italian wines but also some really nice... More

Amazing. Alessandro and Maria are comprehensively wonderful, and the food is extraordinary. The risotto dish and their pork - no words. Fabulous evening. Xx

If you are a foodie you'll love this place. The location is NE of the Borghese Gardens. It's a One Star Michelin Restaurant. And although I have great pictures I am not posting since the meal you'll have will be very different. Oh, and YES....do order all the wine with each dish. Yes, you'll be drunk by the end but...

I think you can ignore any review less than 5 stars as an aberration. Nobody is perfect. We had a marvelous evening with superb food and service. The decor and food is modern but the chef has not gone crazy with molecular cuisine as some others have. This restaurant has one Michelin star and it's well-deserved. I highly recommend the... More

Visited metamorfosi for the 6 course dinner with my wife and kid in October 16. Had very high expectations after reading and researching a lot about the place. Anyways coming back to the review... the welcome and seating was quite hospitable. No complaints there. Being one of the first few to arrive things went super smooth. While we settled for... More

My wife and I really enjoyed our dinner here. We wanted to do a mix of Michelin and non-Michelin starred restaurants during our trip across Italy, and this was one of the few Michelins we decided to go with. We were not disappointed. Each dish was creative, delicious, and celebrated Italian cuisine in different and unique ways. I'd highly recommend... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighbourhood Profile
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
