Unique al Palatino Garden Restaurant: an oasis in the heart of Rome

A lush outdoor restaurant with a dreamlike atmosphere on Palatine Hill

In front of Palatine Hill and inside 400 years of history lies Unique al Palatino Garden Restaurant – the lush outdoor gourmet restaurant of the four-star Kolbe Hotel. A former monastery turned hotel and restaurant in 2007, Unique al Palatino Garden Restaurant has become one of the favorite spots to enjoy an al fresco breakfast, lunch or dinner in the heart of Rome.

But not just any al fresco dining spot, this one is extra special. Just step inside to get a taste of what I’m talking about and to immerse yourself in a dreamlike atmosphere: blossoming trees and centuries-old olive trees and citrus trees hidden by the clamor of the city. The restaurant’s garden is everything one could wish for, it’s an oasis of peace to taste delicious flavors tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
