Trastevere è un quartiere storicamente vocato alla ristorazione turistica, con alcune piccole “oasi”, insegne che propongono una filosofia gastronomica di alto livello. Tra queste c’è Zia Restaurant, che in circa un anno ha saputo catturare attenzione e consensi. Un locale elegante, con design moderno, essenziale, un ambiente che richiama lo stile nordico, un luogo accogliente nel quale opera un team affiatato e professionale, appassionato e disponibile. Ideale per un pranzo all’insegna della tecnica e del sapore o per una cena romantica.

Antonio Ziantoni, giovane allievo di Anthony Genovese (“Il Pagliaccio”), conosce in maniera profonda la tecnica, ed attraverso questa, coadiuvato da una brigata collaudata, propone piatti equilibrati e sorprendenti, come “Animella, aringa e puntarelle”, “Gnocco di zucca, Castelmagno e rosmarino”, “Capriolo, castagne e mirtilli”, o il buonissimo dessert “La Nocciola”.

    The level of service was superb from the moment you walk in the door. Ever attentive without being intrusive. Always smiling & polite. If you want a traditional hearty Italian meal, this is not the place. However, if you are looking for interesting innovative take on modern cooking with modern techniques, you’ve come to the right place. I had the lunch tasting menu, which was really good value at €30 for 3 courses. I enjoyed all 3, which for me were an oyster dish, a pasta dish and a lamb dish. Dessert is not included in this menu, but I finished off with the rice pudding, which had interesting subtle flavours.

    Outstanding restaurant. Absolutely superb, innovative food, the right amount of food for a multiple course meal, pleasant accommodating staff, friendly and helpful personnel in general. All staff knowledgeable about the food and wine being served and took a genuine interest in the group. Excellent value for money for both food and wine and the menu changed over time. Pleasant ambiance. Absolutely the best eating experience during a protracted stay in the City. Very highly recommended

    This is a fabulous small restaurant tucked away at the back of Trastevere. The chef's tasting menu was totally excellent with great flavors, and impeccably presented. Service was unobtrusive and the various dishes were explained well. This restaurant deserves a Michelin star. Decor is minimalist.

    A wonderful lunch experience. The staff were delightful - welcoming, informative and attentive to just the right degree. The food was equally impressive - innovative, exciting and satisfying. Our best meal in Roma on this trip or any other. This is a team of people who care about their work and understand the essence of hospitality. Will be returning when next in Rome.

    Amazing service and wine recommendations! Thank you Marco for this nice evening. The food was great and it is a restaurant to discover, a place for foodies. Be aware, not the traditional Italian menu but food is innovative and not conventional.

    The dish quality was correct - i like really creative kitchen, but it was more strange creativity... sorry. It was not really our taste ...

    The service was friendly and professional. The food was very tasty, fresh and different from your standard Italian affair so that was nice for a change. Perhaps the portions were a bit small but we would definitely go back.

    The food is not what we expect from traditional Trastevere but we enjoy it very much. portion is reasonable for 5 course tasting menu although we came out still felt can eat more, the service is calm and tone down, we are fine with focus on food itself. Food presentation is Michelin level. We will comeback next time we are in Rome.
