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

Luci e piante, piante e luci. Gli elementi fondamentali per la fotosintesi clorofilliana, ma anche i protagonisti degli spazi di “Clorofilla Cucina & Distillati”, a rappresentare l’anima di questo locale situato in Vicolo delle Grotte, a poca distanza da Campo de’ Fiori e Largo Argentina ma anche da Piazza Venezia, nel vero cuore di Roma. Tanta luce quindi, piante ad arredare gli spazi completati da elementi d’arredo in legno e pareti con mattoni a vista, per un risultato finale suggestivo, giovane, piacevole. Protagonista non solo la cucina ma anche i distillati, con la musica dal vivo a completare una atmosfera intrigante e rilassante.

La tradizione italiana come punto di partenza, per rispettarla e rivisitarla al tempo stesso, una carta con piatti a base di carne e di pesce, piatti dai sapori equilibrati e proposte come la “Cheesecake alla caprese”, il “Bombolotto carbonara e tartufo”, il “Cappellaccio gamberi rossi” e tra i dessert la “Catalana cioccolato bianco e lamponi”, senza dimenticare una vasta lista di distillati, utilizzati in modo magistrale per creare cocktail e mix di ingredienti.

    Great modern restaurant. Were pleasantly surprised by the live rock music. They have bands every Thursday.

    Food was tasty, but nothing special so I would not characterise it value for money, especially if you consider that we were 4 persons ordered 2 appetizers, 2 pastas , 2 main courses, a bottle of wine and a non alcoholic cocktail and paid 40€ per person. Service needs a lot of improvement in terms of time and reaction. Restaurant and decoration was extraordinary and very pleasant. I would return for a bottle of wine and a side dish for my wine, due to nice environment

    We found Clorofilla by accident, walking back to our apartment. We made the reservation through the Fork. We were greeted pleasantly and shown to a table immediately. Our dinner was leisurely and the waiters were attentive without hovering. The food was excellent and inviting. We had a wonderful meal!

    Gorgeous interior space with innovative menu that also retains the classics. Italian take on seared tuna was delicious and unique pasta on basil gel with tomato filling was scrumptious. Yummy cocktails and friendly service. It was our second visit and there will surely be a third and fourth ....

    Food was excellent and our server was terrific. We always ask lots of questions about how the meal was prepared, ingredients used and so on and he was very generous with his time and explanation. Also made an excellent suggestion on the wine based on our meal choices. As tourists its always nice to come across what looked like a more local restaurant that is quite good.

    Delicious and creative dishes. The fusion of completely different tastes work perfectly. I have been suggested to eat a Sun Rice and the special tiramisu. Everything was so great! Recommended and on my list of favourite restaurants in Rome!

    Place is nice and dishes were ok but way to small in general and even more if compared to prices. A main course of fish or meat of 20 euros with just little to eat and without any vegebles along is not acceptable

    Meals and desserts were all delicious. Discount listed on reservation was given for booking through Fork without having to ask. Was on a side street so allow time to find.
