Adelaide, a magical place in the center of Rome

The atmosphere and the environment capture the eye, the service extremely attentive even in the refined informality of the place. The overall effect is intriguing and the pleasure is continuous. Finally, in Rome, there is a new space to be lived with a spirit of grace and intimacy. One of those places endowed with a hospitality from other times, but at the same time with a young and easy atmosphere without pretentiousness.

We are talking about “Adelaide”. A restaurant that has warmth, color and charm. It takes its name in honor of Princess Adelaide de la Roche Foucauld, wife of Scipione Borghese. Almost hidden behind a small door, on a secluded street in the heart of the historic center that is aptly named Via dell’Arancio, beyond which a space with evocative cues opens up: “Adelaide” is an emotion totally removed from standards, a feeling of home lines sand at the same time a vibrant and cosmopolitan  energy, an interval of happiness that you would never want to interrupt.

Housed in the Hotel Vilòn, which is in turn located in a wing of Palazzo Borghese, the restaurant is a place to stay for a long time. One of those places that travelers can enjoy along side Romans, to whom the place is a welcome reminder of the elegance that this city reserves, albeit silently.

The chef is Gabriele Muro, a young cook with many important experiences around the world but who is faithful to his Procida origins and a cuisine of lightness, all Mediterranean and wise. The Lounge Bar In Salotto, and not a casual name, is perfect for transmitting the atmosphere of relaxed beauty that hovers between the colonial suggestions of fabrics, materials and architecture.

It will win you over from aperitif to late night, when the real fun starts, with the best and most diverse music, a place that was very much needed to lighten the Eternal City’s spirit.

“Adelaide” and “In Salotto” at the Hotel Vilòn, Via dell’Arancio 69, tel. +3906878187.

Poi non preoccupatevi, sarò io a raccontarvi il tutto a mio modo, sperando di incuriosirvi ed entusiasmarvi come mi succede ogni volta. Basta solo mettervi comodi ed iniziare a leggere".
