Description: Vivendo…il Mediterraneo Restaurant embarks guests in a seductive journey to discover the heritage of flavours of Mediterranean cuisine. Our Executive Chef Francesco Donatelli will propose every season a selection of exquisite recipes from countries of Mediterranean Region. The restaurant provides an intimate atmosphere with a contemporary touch. The furniture recalls the 30’s and 40’s style, offering an informal but refined environment, well balanced with The St. Regis Rome, where it is located. Seventy places, an intimate room for 14 guests, the “Champagnerie”, lighting designed to help the diners relax, but at the same time to emphasise the works of culinary art offering products typical of the area combined with intense fragrances and aromas.

“Luxurious, Warm, Friendly”
Reviewed June 1, 2013

A really great hotel restaurant staffed with friendly and professional staff - not stuffy 5 Star hotel service as could be expected. Interesting menu with dishes we hadn't experienced outside the hotel. Excellent wine list - if you are Aussie go here just for the list. We had a 1997 Mt Langhi Ghiran for 72 euros!

“Elegant, delicious, friendly”
Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

We had the tasting menu. You could pick any 3 items and the manager matched them with 3 wines. I don't eat sugar, and 1 choice was supposed to be a desert, but the manager was so nice he let me pick an appetizer, a pasta and a main dish. They were small portions, but each was excellent, and so were the wines. For 75 Euros each, including wine and service, at such an elegant hotel and restaurant, it was a great value, too. I'm sorry we did not eat there last year.

“Really good service and excellent food”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

We had the "Experience Menu" with 4 plates along with the accompanying wines for 100 euros per person. The first dish of crab meat wrapped in thinly sliced raw tuna was very nice and refreshing especially with the large glass of sparkling Prosseco that accompanied it. The second dish of large shrimp with endive was nice, but an accompanying garnish of some type of dried fish paste jelly was too fishy for my taste and I left it untouched. The main dish of mustard glazed lamb loin was succulent. The desert served with a nice muscatto (sweet white wine) was excellent also.

Highly recommend and great service.

“Food to die for!”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

Elegant and high-class without being pretentious. Service was very attentive and the food was to die for, especially the pork which was the waiters recommendation. One of the best meals I've ever had abroad
