Ristorante di alto livello che lo scorso anno, dopo oltre 10 anni di attività, si è spostato nella struttura del “The First Roma”, lussuoso albergo a 5 stelle che ospita al suo interno anche una galleria d’arte cotemporanea. Situato in Via del Vantaggiato, a pochi passi di via di Ripetta e Piazza del Popolo, in una centralissima zona di Roma molto frequentata da residenti e turisti, Acquolina ha in cucina una brigata che propone una cucina d’autore, contraddistinta da grande tecnica e piatti estremamente colorati, tra i quali si possono menzionare “A qualcuno piace crudo: pesci, molluschi e crostacei”, “Mare e monti: spaghettone, ricci e ’nduja”, “Fagottello con basilico, pecorino, gambero rosso e limone” e tra i dessert la “Passion cheesecake”.

L’ambiente è molto elegante, raffinato, arredato in stile moderno, una sala nella quale trovano spazio elementi legati all’arte ed alla cultura. Su tavoli apparecchiati con una ricercata mise en place arrivano proposte che fanno parte di un menu innovativo, fresco, elegante, basato sulla ricerca e la lavorazione di materie prime di ottimo livello e l’equilibrio dei sapori.

    One of the best meals of my life — ordered a 7 course tasting menu and was given an extra 5 or so amuse bouches and deserts! This restaurant told a beautiful story through food and drink and Despite high prices, this meal is so so worth it! 5 stars, would definitely go back!

    The food was great, and very innovative in presentation and flavor profile. Every dish had an X factor to it: surprising taste, surprising texture or some kind of drama. Definitely recommend!

    Really recommended! Very professional staff, but you don’t feel like in a “museum”, the restaurant very “live”! The Chef is very kind))) and the dishes not small as usual in the restaurant like this one so was very difficult to ate the last positions????????????

    Having eaten at almost 80 Michelin Starred restaurants, worldwide, I thought the food, at aquolina, was beautifully presented but inconsistent, to say the least. Some of the flavour combinations didn't match for me, others were good. At a Michelin starred restaurant I expect all the dishes, on a 7 course tasting menu, to achieve the same level of excellence. it was interesting to compare the place to Michelin's best fish restaurant in the UK and although "Nathan Outlaw's" in Cornwall has 2 stars, Aquolina fell well short. Pity really. The staff were excellent. Perhaps I was expecting too much.

    Nothing extraordinary. Paid €350 for two. I wouldn’t say its worth that price.

    We had a perfect evening. The food is fantastic, very creative and tasty. Service couldn’t be better. It is not cheap but this can’t be expected for abtestaurant of this class. Compared to other 1 Michelin star restaurants this is even better. Highly recommended!

    This has been by far the worst Michelin star experience in Rome over the past two years. One wonders how they obtained the star in the first place. The main restaurant was booked for a corporate event. Instead of letting people know the restaurant put us into the lobby bar space of the hotel.

    The evolution of Italian haute cuisine ! The "classici" menu is an astonishing take on well-known plates : you will remember their bruschetta, presented as a sorbet... The venue is tastefully decorated, the cocktails amazing and the presentation of all plates superbly mastered. The best part of it all being the staff and their perfect service !

    The best dining experience we’ve ever had. We decided to end our trip in Italy with a unique experience and this was exactly what we wanted. We did the 9 course selection and were shocked when we realized we had been there over 3 hours. Time seemed to stop, it was incredible.
