Championing sustainable cooking practices, Aroma offers a blend of traditional Italian and Mediterranean flavors.

By Elite Traveler

The rooftop of the Palazzo Manfredi hotel hosts the sumptuous and stylish dining experience Aroma, where fresh, sophisticated blends of traditional Roman and Mediterranean flavors come with show-stopping views of the Colosseum. Roman-born Chef Di Lorio has been Aroma’s head chef since it opened in 2010 and his fine work has earned the restaurant a Michelin star.

Di Lorio is a champion of sustainable cooking practices and recently took the drastic step to remove all tuna from the menu. Instead, he has altered his dishes to showcase species that are lesser-known and therefore not as intensively fished. Like a true Roman, there is also a strong emphasis on pasta with five different variants available in the main courses alone.

While the sleek and elegant interior dining space offers a refined, welcoming ambiance, Aroma has to be experienced alfresco, with a superb evening repast on the candlelit terrace and the night-lit Colosseum seemingly almost close enough to touch.
