Il mediterraneo in tavola, con i suoi sapori, colori, fragranze, lo spirito e l’essenza, partendo dalla storia della tradizione culinaria siciliana per offrire piatti succulenti. Roma centro, via Sicilia, la parte alta di via Veneto: è qui che si trova il ristorante “Orlando”, locale accogliente che racconta la Sicilia, attraverso un percorso gastronomico che consente anche di scoprire l’origine delle materie prime, dei piatti, dei loro nomi e delle ricorrenze che li vedono protagonisti. L’atmosfera è sobria ed elegante grazie ad un arredamento essenziale dai colori puliti, minimalisti, ed una sala arredata in marmo e parquet.

Il pesce è il grande protagonista del menu, e lo si capisce subito con “Il viaggio di Ulisse”, piatto che consiste in 6 assaggini, poi con gli “Involtini di pesce spada con scarola e gamberi, crema di zucca finocchi e rocher di zucca”, ma anche con il gran crudo di mare, preparato con pesce freschissimo abbinato a frutti di vario tipo e condito con olio ragusano; ed anche la “Busiata alla Trapanisa” (tonno, pesce spada e pesto di mandorle) o le “Fettuccelle Scilla e Cariddi” (con pesce, cozze e finocchietto). Tra i secondi il “Rombo con crema di patate viola, asparagi e cremoso alle alici”.

Parliamo quindi di cucina creativa ma che però non perde mai di vista la tradizione. Immancabile tra i dolci il “Cannolo Siciliano”, da mangiare magari abbinandolo ad un vino dolce presente nella carta dei vini fortemente concentrata su etichette siciliane e francesi, molto ricercata e per niente banale nella sua struttura. Servizio molto curato, ma comunque informale e accogliente.

    The staff welcomed us courteously and warmly. But the dishes were too salty and not so fine, far from the previous ones. I will not visit for a while.

    We knew the restaurant from our first visit more than a year ago, and we loved it. Our second visit now was - sorry to say - even the more so disappointing. If it weren't for the address and the good service, we wouldn't believe it was the same restaurant. For a restaurant that prides itself with the Guide Michelin, food was simply not commensurate, and prices are - for what we received - definitely too high. Among the starters, the polpo arrosto was way too salty; the gamberi rosso di Mazara in tempura was ok (but nothing more). The (traditional) pasta with gamberi and pistacchio was perfectly al dente and good, but nothing exceptional The greatest disappointment were the involtini di pesce spada con crema di peperoni in agrodolce - there was hardly any pesce spada, it was dry (stored for too long in the fridge??) and I do hope ... it was fresh. The filling of the involtini was very dominant, very dull in taste and left a very pasty unpleasant mouth feeling. Deserts were good, but again not exceptional as you would expect, given the Guide Michelin kudo and price level. Disappointing also the espresso - they used to have a truly excellent caffè ... but this one now is ok, but nothing more. All in all, we are not even sure whether we would risk a third attempt in this restaurant ... which is a pity in view of their first and excellent impression on us ... some time ago. ..

    For my last night in Rome, I thought I’d treat myself to this Michelin Guide restaurant. But I ended up with gastroenteritis with full body sweats all night - the night before my flight. Two pieces of the 6 piece fried Appetizer tasting course were cold; my main course pasta was lacklustre and the dessert was mediocre (the other choices were Granita or sorbets - that’s pretty boring). Also, when my wine was finished, the Somalier didn’t even come back to ask if I wanted another glass. To top it off, the restaurant was pretty noisy. Its just too bad that this happened. I’ve been to other Michelin star/guide restaurants and this is no where close to their standards.

    As much as I wished to be ecstatic about this restaurant, it fell just a little bit short of expectations. While some dishes were excellent (primi, octopus starter, swordfish), others left us feel a little underwhelmed. Do not regret coming here for the experience, the delicious wine (thanks to the sommelier recommendation!) and desert, but something about the whole thing left us wanting. The restaurant is dog-friendly though, so that’s a plus!

    Wonderful experience! Fabulous food, service was impeccable and the wine was sublime! Most other guests were Italian. We were treated very politely yet in a non-pompus friendly way. The fish and seafood was delicious and refined. We definitely want to go back before leaving Rome.

About the restaurant

TRADIZIONE SICILIANA - A due passi da Villa Borghese, a Roma, si trova il Ristorante Orlando. Un ambiente molto accogliente con una sala elegante, arredata in parte in marmo e parquet. Ad attirare l'attenzione della clientela sono subito i pupi, che fanno intuire l'attenzione che viene riservata per la tradizione siciliana.

LA CUCINA - Il menù, quasi tutto a base di pesce, è molto intrigante e completo, dagli squisiti arancini alle tartare, fino ai gamberi crudi, il tutto veramente freschissimo. E’ presente anche dell’ottima pasta fresca. Molto usato il pistacchio, come la cucina siciliana vuole.

PASTICCERIA - Assolutamente consigliati i dolci della casa proposti, delle vere bontà.
