Vittorio Spezie e Cucina Rome – Cool decor

"Vittorio Spezie e Cucina" mixes traditional Italian cuisine with the spices, aromas and colours of Rome's famous Piazza Vittorio market. Excellent decor.

The area around Piazza Vittorio Emanuele is well known as one of the more multicultural parts of Rome, combining classic Roman architecture with street markets and ethnic restaurants. I think that this juxtaposition is what makes this part of town so interesting, and apparently the owners of new restaurant and cocktail bar Vittorio Spezie e Cucina think so too - it's exactly what inspired them to create this spot, which mixes traditional Italian cuisine with "the spices, aromas and colours of the famous market that characterises Piazza Vittorio."

For me the decor of a restaurant plays as big a part as the food - I like a place that feels cosy, comfortable and stylish. Vittorio has got this completely right - its bold coloured walls, vintage furniture and chandeliers feels welcoming and warm, transporting you somewhere much more exotic than Rome. Its decor makes it feel like something a little different for a special occasion, but its friendly staff and reasonable prices mean it's a great destination anytime you want. 

I only went there for a drink, and the Burlesque cocktail I ordered was great - a little pricey at €10, but worth it. Wine and beers are much more reasonable: wine is €5 a glass and beers start from €4 a pint. Whilst I didn't stay for dinner, the food looked good - particularly the pizzas, which starting from €7 don't break the bank either. 

This spot has it all: funky decor, great staff and decent prices. Recommended if you're in the Termini/Vittorio Emmanuele area!
