Hotel de la Ville: a new culinary destination in Rome
Food & Drink
18 April 2019
Breaking from the traditional trattoria menus that dominate so much of Rome’s restaurant scene, Hotel de la Ville stands out as something entirely different. A new culinary destination in Rome, Hotel de la Ville’s six bars and restaurants span a variety of traditions, from contemporary Roman cuisine to ambitious multi-destination menus and tucked away terraces offering theatrical cocktails and spectacular city views.
On the ground floor, our Italian trattoria will offer cappuccinos and croissants from the early hours, and a classic menu of modern Roman dishes all day. As General Manager Francesco Roccato puts it, “It’s important to cater to locals as well as visitors, with sophisticated yet simple cuisine”.
Moving up to the second-floor, our destination cocktail bar is anything but traditional. The inspiration for this bar lies in 13th-century spice routes, with a carefully curated collection of herbal liqueurs and wines used to craft individual, inventive cocktails and infusions. Uniquely, the menu will consist of a chequerboard map of herbs, spices and spirits to create a personalised taste profile for each guest.
Sharing the second floor on the courtyard side is our flagship fusion restaurant. Here, inspiration is drawn from the melting pot of cultures that made up the Roman Empire, with Michelin-starred chef Fulvio Pierangelini’s menu taking local produce and infusing it with culinary flourishes drawn from Africa, the Middle East and the Balkans.
Spread across the sixth and seventh-floor terraces, our rooftop bar features fiery lanterns that artfully enhance the already exceptional view. “It’ll be a terrace where you can bring the young in spirit, not just the youth,” explains Roccato. A versatile space, guests can savour small plates and a glass of wine during the day, a delicious dinner and flaming cocktails in the evening, and DJ sessions after sundown. For aperitivo hour, we have created playful Italian ‘dim sum’; think gyoza filled with artichoke or carbonara, and steamed dumplings filled with pesto or Parmigiano. A far cry from the typical bowl of olives.
