In via Ghibellina c'è un ristorante che stuzzica tutti e cinque i sensi. Ma prima dell'olfatto e del gusto, appena si varca la soglia di Aroma Ristorante in Firenze, è la vista a essere coinvolta. Perché balza subito agli occhi il bianco delle pareti e degli arredi o il legno del soffitto con le travi a vista. Il verde del pavimento in stile fiorentino e il grigio del monumentale bancone all'ingresso che ricorda i trascorsi da latteria, negli anni Venti, e poi da vineria. Tutti questi elementi rendono l'ambiente raccolto, intimo ed elegante. Come la cucina di Marco Romei, chef e titolare di Aroma.

Romei ha esordito a 17 anni come pasticciere. Poi ha frequentato per diversi anni le cucine di alcuni locali fiorentini come Le Murate e Don Chisciotte. E ora, da sei anni, nella sua cucina propone un'idea di ristorazione che sintetizza il suo percorso: iniziato da autodidatta dei fornelli e terminato alla guida della brigata del suo locale. Una cucina incentrata sul pesce. Protagonista delle tartare di branzino, tonno o ricciola servite con un mix di salse italiane e giapponesi o dello spaghetto alla carbonara di mare, quasi sempre in carta sebbene il menu segua la stagionalità. Senza dimenticare le catalane di crostacei di Mazara del Vallo o i crudi. La cucina, dunque, vive del pescato del giorno. Ma ci sono alternative anche per chi desidera le verdure, provenienti dal vicino mercato di Sant'Ambrogio, o le carni. Oltre al piccione e alla bistecca ci sono la wagyu e il manzo di kobe giapponese allevati sull'appennino tosco-emiliano. Carni pregiate che Romei, conoscitore della cultura gastronomica del Sol Levante da più di 20 anni, ha inserito in menu. L'Oriente torna anche nel bicchiere: a fine pasto, oltre a prodotti di etichette nazionali, è possibile degustare whisky giapponese. Niente carta, invece, per i dolci: sarà il personale di sala a spiegarvi le proposte del giorno. Anche se la millefoglie espresso e la tartelletta di pasta frolla con crema chantilly restano un marchio di fabbrica del locale.

Amazing place , food and service excellent. Only reason for slightly lower score on setting and atmosphere was because it was a very quiet evening with only 3 other diners. If in Florence again would certainly return there

Service was helpful and friendly. The dining room has a simple but comfortable feel, just a bit upscale. The food was all good, especially the whole fish for two, accompanied by an excellent medley of vegetables. The appetizers lacked a bit of impact, and the special pasta, a seafood carbonara, did not have the feel of a carbonara and, in any case, was not very good

Great , attentive service . Delicious pasta and branzino filet . Decontracted and pleasant atmosphere al Fresco except for some inconsiderate surrounding people who were not stopping to smoke and were making the dining experience not as pleasant as it could have .

Maybe it was because it was a holiday (Inmacolata ) but the restaurant was empty for dinner ( even if you would had expected the oposite ) that was already a bad omen. I guess this is the typical tourist joint propelled by non discerning tourists. They did not have anybody italian in a national holiday in December, weird. It is a very small restaurant a bit off the center (the GPS coordinates were also wrong). The empasis is on fish, but really it is difficult to get any decent fish in Italy if it is not in the coastal towns, no matter how many times I try. The wine selection was good considering the scale of the place. The service was very attentive and did their best. The price was a bit on the high end for what was offered. in my case around 60Eur + wine (for one). The trip advisor rating is completely off. how it got gambero rosso certificate of excelencia us beyond my comprehension.

Superb seafood; all courses excellent. Not very good wine list; limited and overpriced. Service was excellent initially, but it was difficult to get anyone's attention after we finished our mains.
