Incredible customer service from the whole team. big shout out to all the guys who did a wonderful job, presentation, and get our wine glasses full. Food was good, no doubt, there is room to grow, but hey that's why one day they may have the Mich star and not today. Great ambience inside, wishing your restaurant all the success in the future.

About the restaurant
Placed in the middle of the elegant street of the Roman “Dolce Vita”, Hard Rock Cafe Rome is an exclusive location for authentic experiences filled with energy and great vibes. Do Like the Romans Do! While dining at our world-class fine restaurant, you'll find not just amazing meals to fit every appetite, but also wide windows on the Roman world. Hard Rock Cafe Rome is the ultimate spot for people watching, a quintessential part of Roman culture. So when in Rome, whether improving your wardrobe or seeking out la dolce vita, visit the Hard Rock Cafe Rome for everything an emperor would desire. The location is also a true music history museum thanks to the original memorabilia on display all around the venue. It is possible to admire a classic dress by David Bowie, a Fender telecaster guitar signed by Bruce Springsteen, the grey trench from John Lennon during his hyper-political period in the ’70s and an amazing patchwork suit worn by Jimi Hendrix during the Isle of Wight festival.

About the restaurant
The lunch and dinner services are organized on the rooftop. Only in case of bad weather (rain), we need to move the service inside to our internal restaurant on the ground floor.
Our staff will guide you through a complete journey, turning your dream into reality.

Looking forward to welcoming you,

Oro Bistrot Staff.

About the restaurant
Anima, meaning ‘soul' in Italian, speaks true to the dishes prepared, as a tastement of the emotionality of food and the importance of interaction with guests. It is for that reason that the kitchen is open-fronted and screened with ambered glass, so all can admire the chefs work. Anima opens to a charming courtyard for outdoor dining, a lush oasis with over 400 flourishing plants, climbing vines, teak benches, and Italian-style lanterns, evoking a Roman garden vibe. The menus at Anima showcase a blend of classics reinvented with a modern flair, drawing inspiration from Italy's celebrated array of fresh, local, and seasonal ingredients
