The experience started badly, when I booked I asked for an external table and I was told that all tables are assigned at the arrival, but then we couldn’t get any of the empty external tables because “they were booked since months”....
Other than this lie, the service was absolutely not at the level of a Starred restaurant (very confused, forgetting orders of drinks, bringing twice the same food...)
However, we have been in many 1-2-3 Michelin star restaurants and here we surely had one of the best dinner. Appetizers and dessert of the tasting menu were absolutely amazing.
The chef and the view well deserved all the money we spent.

Exceptional and unique location. I was with my wife to enjoy our wedding anniversary with a perfect weather on may 17th. Dishes was good even if not at the level you would expect from 1 Michelin * restaurant. They were presented without much attention to the details and a very light introduction that does not create the proper expectation. Also the mise en place was not at levela all. All in all the price we paid and the services we received are a clear mismatch. This is very unfortunate given how the location is world class.

Aroma restaurant is definitely a hight class experience. The food is what you would expect in a Michelin starred restaurant. We took the 7 courses menu and ended up having about 10.
From the first second, the staff was professional and always accommodating, as one would expect in such a place. The view however deserves special praise, as it is coincidentally my absolute favorite building in Rome, the Colloseum!
The aubergine ravioli was so exquisitely smooth, the veal tongue so tender, absolutely amazing!
Even if we got about 4 deserts, because it was my birthday, the Nest has to be the highlight of this evening! The egg is white chocolate with white chocolate mousse inside and in the center passion fruit mousse, perfectly replicating visually an egg until the laat detail, and creating a pairing of tastes absolutely enchanting. The nest is built out of caramel twigs and nuts with white mousse under it, the brown twigs are dark chocolate in cocoa powder. I have yet to taste something so delicious!
Truly an experience, for a special occasion!

Aroma, the restaurant with a view towards the Coloseum. Only the view would be worth the tables. We, my GF and I, took the 7 courses menu. And we were Impressed. Every meal tasty. Ofcourse, some more to my tast and some more towards her taste. But we could not have known the surprise that was waiting for us. The Desert, called the birdsnest. Nothing less than the mastery of creating an imaginary dish. If you ever have seen the dessert: throught the rabbithole. Well, the taste competes with its originallity. Nothing less than absolutely amazing. Not to mention how nice The staff was. The 7 courses expanded to a Bit more. Absolutely loved it. Aroma, you offered us a experience In taste we will never forget. Thank you for that.

Thank you so much for a wonderful experience and evening!

We started our night with drinks at The Court downstairs and aperitif, which was a lovely start to the evening, and the staff were very friendly.

Then we made our way up to Aroma, and we were amazed by the view. The food was amazing. We opted for the 3 course menu, but even with this option there are several other small courses served in between, which was lovely and added to the wonderful experience. The staff were also lovely and couldn't do enough.

Some reviews on this page have said the food and drink took a long time to arrive, but I felt this was part of the experience as the table is yours for the evening, so sit back and enjoy the ambience and view. It is expensive, but so worth it for a special treat that you will remember forever.
