Ristorante e lounge bar di Palazzo Montemartini, hotel a cinque stelle che si affaccia sulle Terme di Diocleziano, non troppo distante dalla chiesa di Santa Maria degli Angeli, Senses è caratterizzato da una grande sala open space, da un ampio soffitto e da imponenti colonne quadrate. Diviso in tre aree, zona ristorante, area lounge e bancone del bar, è arredato secondo i dettami del design contemporaneo che ben si integra con marmi e stucchi di questo magnifico palazzo di fine ‘800. In cucina lo chef Simone Strano propone una cucina mediterranea piuttosto ricercata, ispirata ai prodotti ed alle ricette siciliane ma in modo creativo. La freschezza della materia prima come linea guida della filosofia culinaria, che tiene conto delle esigenze di una clientela composta in buona percentuale da stranieri.

Un ambiente suggestivo, grazie anche alla presenza di una grande fontana centrale con una cascata di acqua dall'alto, nel quale poter gustare piatti ineccepibile per quel che concerne la tecnica e l’abbinamento di sapori e consistenze. Alcuni esempi? Da provare il “Carpaccio di gambero, fragoline di bosco, stracciatella di bufala e bottarga di muggine”, la ‘’carbonara’’ di tonno con lo spaghettone di "Monograno Felicetti", la “Coda di rospo, lenticchie Beluga e pomodorini canditi” e l'arancino "prende Forma", ovvero un arancino dolce di ricotta, pistacchio e arancia.

    Excellent food - the chef is so talented ! He combines beautiful delicate flavours- the staff is attentive and welcoming - the service is impeccable and the actual dining room is breathtaking. Having been there a few times in the past it is always a pleasure going back. The terrace on the roof is something not to be missed and the waiter in charge of the bar is a great asset - just one of our favourite place in Rome

    A hidden gem is this restaurant in an old palace hotel. Great ambiance for romantic dinner or simply enjoying fine dining. You feel here private, taken care of you and served like by friends with a comfortable level of attention. Even it is a high class venue, you taste the personal touch of the dishes.

    The best meal we had in Italy after 7 days. Everybody enjoyed their meal. I personally had shrimps carpaccio and beef tenderloin and both were excellent. I had a taste also from the see bass of my brother's wife and it was great as well. The deserts were also very good, especially the chocolate fondant. The place itself is also beautiful and the music was at the right volume. I highly recommend this restaurant for those who like fine dining. Although I had a meal there with my family I'm sure it is a great place also for couples to have a romantic meal too.

    The decor was breathtaking ! While there was very few people in the restaurant we thoroughly enjoyed the good the attention of the staff - Rocco was very helpful and talked us through all the delicious dishes on offer - the food was sophisticated and had the most amazing flavours - we certainly will be back very soon - the chef was creative and combined flavours and scent to an unexpected result ! Gorgeous ! Could not fault a thing ????????????

    Nice location, although there were 20 ppl partying and so very noisy, the service was good and our waiter very kind and professional. But the food was very disappointing. I tried an appetizer and a main course. The egg as appetizer was really pretentious with the Blue cheese covering any other taste. Lamb as main course was definitely over cooked, not tender at all. Overall disappointing experience. Ps menu showed on The Fork website is obsolete, also in terms of prices.

    The very best restaurant we went to in two weeks in Italy! Every aspect was excellent. Amazingly the place was empty...I suppose the price wards off many. We got a 30% offer here on the fork and it was a great value.

    The meal was super, the service was fabulous and very friendly. The restaurant was quiet as we were dining at 19:30, the 20% discount was a real bonus.
