Aroma Restaurant, Rome
Chef Giuseppe di Ioro and his team do an exceptional work of running this place. At Michelin star standards you’d expect nothing less than €100 per plate but I had a delicious lunch of the simplest Italian flavors for less than €40!
I started with wine from the region of Friuli Venezia Giulia and a side of fresh bread. I know I should have chosen wine from the region of Lazio but at that time the chef recommended something cold and relaxing so I went for the white wine!
The view of the Colosseum from the restaurant is breathtaking. I was sitting exactly in the middle to get a perfectly exceptional view. The sun was blazing on the Colosseum so I wasn’t hot either.
My host, Alessandro, made sure he wasn’t overbearing to me but at the same time around for my needs. He ordered ricciola in melone sauce with fresh herbs for my first course. I don’t call myself a food expert but an enthusiast and I can safely say the food was exquisite and light!
For the second course I ordered a buttery ravioli with olive oil and thyme in potato filling. This was simple hearty food at it’s best! I enjoyed every bite with that view!
The chef kept sending me greetings from time to time such as a light plate of starters or a dessert of chocolate and raspberry!

After spending 2 hours of eating topped with great service, wine and views, I ordered a beetroot cake and caffe`. It looked right out of an episode of MasterChef, a fabulous end to a meal!!
I would highly recommend Aroma Restaurant to anyone looking for a meal with a view + a bit of quiet in all the rush of a big city like Rome. And no, Aroma Restaurant isn’t as expensive as you are thinking. Check their menu for more! Thank you to Marianna for arranging everything and making sure my day so special! Grazie mille tante!!
