We had Christmas Eve dinner here and it was a unique experience. The food was great. The wine was super. The views and the ambiance were outstanding. It is pricey and I wouldn't waste the money if you have picky eaters.

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

Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the
cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to
five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to

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.
