The Marzapane Terrace and Dehors is open

Summer is upon us and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome our friends back to Marzapane. We are serving dinner and lunch on the new Marzapane Terrace and Dehors, our curated outdoor spaces with views of lush Villa Borghese park, the hustle and bustle of Via Flaminia and for a few special tables, even the Porta del Popolo down the street. For chilly evenings, we have outdoor heaters to keep you cosy at your table, but we recommend dressing for the weather.

New hours for lunch and dinner

Marzapane is open from Wednesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner. Dinner is served everyday from 19-22. We’re serving lunch just Friday to Sunday from 12.30 – 15.30. Until we can reopen our indoor dining rooms, space is especially limited. We highly recommend you reserve your table in advance!

Our new menu: a trip across land and sea

Our chefs Francesco and Guglielmo spent last week testing new recipes for our re-opening menu. The new menu is a trip across land and sea, featuring imaginative meat, fish and vegetable dishes that celebrate the spring bounty while we get ready for summer. We’re making great use of our grill in the kitchen, grilling everything from quail to squid to asparagus.

Get the experience going with one of the savory starters like the grilled quail, cooked over open flames and served with a creamy sauce made from drippings. Or dive into the sea with red prawns, early summer tomatoes and celebrated Nero dei Nebrodi prosciutto.

Continue the experience with our revisited fried rice, now with moscardini (octopus) or fieno pasta tossed with sausage and kimchi, a korean specialty of fermented cabbage. Francesco and Guglielmo are grilling calamaro for a seafood main, served with spring peas and ink sauce. If you’re more in the mood for turf than surf, try the pork with creamy stracchino cheese and green tomatoes.

How about something sweet to finish? We’re debuting our cronuts: flaky layered pastry that’s fried and rolled in sugar and served with a light citrus custard. It’s strawberry season, so we’re serving a rich strawberry mousse with basil. Or for those seeking a chocolate fix, you can’t go wrong with the torta caprese.

Can’t decide what to order? Go with the Chef Tasting Menu.

Leave your experience up to Francesco and Guglielmo in the kitchen with the five-course tasting menu. The menu is designed for the whole table and left to the discretion of the capable chefs themselves, which is the best way to experience the Marzapane kitchen.

Lunchtime at Marzapane

Open Tuesday – Sunday 12.30 – 16 | Reserve a Table

You work hard, treat yourself.

The moment you walk into Marzapane – now in its new home at via Flaminia 64 – you know you’re in the right place. The open kitchen where chefs Francesco and Guglielmo reign, the aromas and sounds of the wood fire grill in the kitchen, the bustle of the regulars at the counter or the business and leisure suits sitting in the dining room on the first floor. Lunch time isn’t new for Marzapane, but with restaurants closed at dinner, lunch is the new best time to enjoy yourself there.

Everyday the menu changes and features seasonal produce, game and meat from sustainable farms – like the acclaimed wild duck that’s a signature and constant source of inspiration for the Marzapane kitchen – paired with Italian natural wines curated by the resident sommelier, Tommaso Viggiani, and served with a smile by token French team member, Constance. It’s an elevated familial experience, the kind of place where you can go to relax just as easy as host a business power lunch.

Back to the Origins of Cooking

The centerpiece of the open kitchen at the new Marzapane in Flaminio is without a doubt the new wood fire grill. A custom grill design, hand made for Marzapane by skilled Italian artisans in Sicily, the appeal to cooking over an open flame came from the team’s pop-up in Sicily last summer. Now the cooking technique has reconnected the chefs – both classically trained in sophisticated cooking techniques – with the most rudimentary methods for preparing food.

In the Good Hands of Chefs Francesco and Guglielmo: The Chef Menu at Marzapane

The spirit of the Marzapane kitchen is best expressed through spontaneity, that moment when the chef meets ingredient, transforms it through technique and inspiration, before it’s plated and served.
