A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

La Basilica di San Giovanni, uno dei luoghi più conosciuti di Roma, è il riferimento ideale per spiegare in quale zona della città è situato il ristorante “Chiaroscuro”. Locale elegante e raffinato grazie alle bianche pareti ed agli arredi estremamente curati, offre una cucina basata su una meticolosa ricerca delle materie prime nel rispetto della stagionalità e sulla cura dei particolari e dei dettagli. Predominano i sapori mediterranei della tradizione culinaria del nostro paese, rappresentati al meglio dai prodotti principali che fanno capolino nel menu, dalle seppie ai ricci, dai crostacei al pesce freschissimo, proponendo anche interessanti variazioni dei classici, come nel caso delle “linguine all'amatriciana di mare”.

Aperti tutti i giorni tranne il lunedì, sia a pranzo che a cena, Chiaroscuro può contare anche su di una cantina molto fornita, con una grande varietà di vini italiani e champagne. Struttura ideale non solo per cenare o pranzare fuori casa, ma anche per eventi di ogni tipo, poiché è possibile organizzare feste private ma anche battesimi, comunioni e matrimoni. Piatti buoni da mangiare e belli da vedere, un servizio attento e professionale, un’atmosfera piacevole ed elegante: questi i punti di forza di Chiaroscuro.

    A really nice place with excellent food, very good service and good prices. They would be able to aspire to bigger challenges. Without taking the merit from anything I would strongly recommend to rethink les petit four. They do not have the right quality for this restaurant

    Our whole experience was a delight! Our waiter was wonderful and gave excellent recommendations! The food was scrumptious! Our water and wine glasses weren’t ever empty. And the desserts, chocolate soufflé, tiramisu and fresh fruit flambé were so decadent! You must go to this restaurant!

    We couldn't have been more delighted! Six of us had the 5 course tasting menu and it was terrific value with loads of extras thrown in (prosecco, amuse bouche, several types of bread, coffee, liqueurs, sweets!). The service was super fast and attentive, but the waiter thoughtfully offered us a rest before the dessert so we didn't feel we were being rushed. We had a choice of all the desserts on the menu, not just the one specified for the testing menu. My partner had the most delicious flambeed fruit which he said was one of the best desserts he'd ever had, and he's had a lot! It was a wonderful surprise to have such a special meal in elegant surroundings at such an affordable price. Highly recommended!

    Best seafood restaurant I've been to in Rome! The tasting menu was fabulous and such good value! Each dish was prepared with so much care and creativity! This was matched by impeccable service - they were always super attentive to our needs despite the fact we were a big group! They made my grandma's birthday very special and we appreciated all the extra touches and effort so much!
