Arco Antico is a restaurant at the height of the culinary world. Only fitting then that it is located on the hill of Janiculum, the highest point of Rome.
An unobstructed view awaits you. What a reward for those who come to this restaurant, stripped down and of contemporary elegance! With cream-coloured brick walls enveloped by subtle lighting, the room gives out a comforting, cocoon-like atmosphere.
As for the food, it is simply astounding. Chef Patrizia Mattei creates Italian cuisine awakened here and there with a few modern touches. Pigeon stuffed with figs in a pistachio crust, mozzarella mousse with bursts of caramelized tomatoes… the combinations walk a tightrope between tradition and fantasy, right through to the alternating hot and cold dessert.
