Via Nazionale è una importante arteria della capitale, che dalla zona vicina alla Stazione Termini conduce sino a Piazza Venezia, collegando due luoghi nevralgici di Roma. Su questa elegante via c’è il Teatro Eliseo, al cui interno è situato il ristorante Cucina Eliseo, luogo estremamente raffinato, al cui interno vari elementi d’arredo molto ricercati contribuiscono a rendere molto suggestiva l’atmosfera. Dai lampadari agli specchi, dai materiali alla splendida vetrata con consente alla luce di scaldare l’ambiente, senza dimenticare lo spazio all’aperto ideale per pranzare o cenare nei periodi caldi.

Stagionalità prima di tutto, ma anche grande importanza al territorio con prodotti a km0 ed alla sostenibilità con la filiera corta e la biodiversità: sono molti gli elementi che caratterizzano la filosofia culinaria che rende quanto mai intrigante il menu, nel quale trova spazio la tradizione romana ma anche le moderne tecniche di cottura. Il risultato? Piatti come la “Tartare di manzo maremmano, rape rosse e chutney agrodolce”, i “Ravioloni artigianali di carciofi al burro & salvia, crema di rapa rossa e scaglie di pecorino”, le “Polpette di broccoli e patate con bufala, marmellata di peperoncino, cavolfiore giallo”, la “Cheese cake infornata di ricotta di bufala, marmellata di zucca”.

    The food was really good but the service not so much although we’re ALONE in the restaurant food took time to arrive and the waitress wasn’t very friendly. Still a good restaurant but be careful you need to enter in the theater to get in the restaurant !!

    Very accommodating for our lack of Italian language skills, a great waiter with excellent English. Meals were average size, but filling! Great wine suggestion. Perfect atmosphere.

    My husband and I are French and we decided to eat in a typical Italian restaurant for our 1st night in Roma and we found the Cucina Eliseo with the Fork app. What a pleasant surprise in a hidden place: just above the Teatro Eliseo! The Italian waitress was very kind and tried her best to communicate with us in English, the white wine tasted great and the food was very good, tasty and well presented! We chose to eat two antipasti, two primi piati and two dolci. Everything was delicious but we really enjoyed our desserts: the italian version of the cheesecake and the nocciole semifreddo (with hazelnuts and chocolate). Therefore we highly recommend it! Grazie al ristorante Cucina Eliseo.

    Poor choices on menu and not well cooked, therefore not value for money. Restaurant was empty but much noise came from bar below . Would not return.

    The staff speaks mainly Italian, so it was a bit of a language barrier. The waiter worked extremely hard to understand us. The food was small portioned, but excellent. I would have loved more!
