Piazza dei Re di Roma è uno dei cuori pulsanti della città, un crogiuolo di strade, persone, auto e suoni. Una zona strategica anche dal punto di vista gastronomico, grazie all’alta densità di locali di ogni tipo. Tra questi, in via Vercelli, c’è Alchimia Food Lab, un luogo originariamente strutturato per il take away ed ora divenuto un interessante “laboratorio culinario”, dove i piatti proposti hanno una identità ben precisa. Ampie vetrate, tanta luce, spazi arredi con gusto e semplicità, predominanza del legno e di altre cromie scure per quel che concerne tavoli e sedie, colori chiari per il resto dell’ambiente, una mise en place essenziale ma ben studiata.

In cucina un interessante mix tra vari elementi, dalla tradizione alla creatività passando per le contaminazioni etniche, tenendo sempre ben presente il riferimento della stagionalità. Un lavoro con l’obiettivo primario dell’equilibrio dei sapori, ricercato attraverso l’utilizzo di tecniche moderne e materie prime di qualità. Da segnalare tra i piatti in carta la “Parmigiana della tradizione”, gli “Gnocchi cacio e pepe con gamberi e lime” e la “Cheesecake con marmellata artigianale di arance amare”.

    Adoro la cacio e pepe e la prendo ogni volta che che la trovo in un menù. Qui si mangia con gamberi e lime. Veramente gustosa!

    Great place, amazing food and service. The tasting menu is great and very reasonably priced. Prosecco on arrival, help with the menu and they are happy to customise dish selections to your requirements (i.e. no raw fish). All the courses were great, service was excellent throughout. If I had one issue, i'd say the lighting could be a bit lower, as it's a little bit bright, but hey now i'm just being annoying! I heavily recommend.

    I can't speak highly enough of this restaurant. It was walking distance of our apartment and we were not expecting to find such a great place. I'd highly recommend reservations as there aren't a ton of tables. We found it on the Fork and were able to get same day. From the moment we sat down, we knew we were in for a culinary experience. The staff is very friendly and passionate about the food. It's a pretty impressive menu and we were beyond satisfied with the tasting menu. The value was a steal for us, I honestly thought it would be more expensive but I think it came out to around 40 euro. They offered a creative take on Italian favorites. I'm always a fan of culinary risk taking and their chef certainly delivered. The meal started with a complimentary prosecco and amuse bouche. Ours was tomato gazpacho with burrata cream. Everything on the menu sounded good and the chef could have sold us on each special. However, we opted for the tasting menu to try 8 different dishes and at only €40 we actually found i

    Very nice atmosphere, small restaurant with caring service and very good food. We are the gustation menu so had a chance to taste most of the kitchen's plates. Could barely finish it all...

    All the workers there were so friendly and warm-hearted to assist us ordering good meals. The meals were good as well. But I’d like to emphasize the most significant reason to recommend this restaurant is its relaxing and delightful atmosphere.

    Alchimia was such a find! It had a very modern feel and the chef has a gift. Every bit of our whole groups’ meal were artistic, delicious, and very concious of texture. Each person that left the restaurant the night we were there went out of their way to give the chef their praises. I definitely recommend this restaurant when in Rome if you’d like a fine dining experience at a reasonable price.
