Awarded with a Michelin Star in 2010 and 2 forks from the prestigious Gambero Rosso, Enoteca la Torre offers one of the most exclusive experiences in the Capital: sophisticated cuisine and great care and consideration for the client in an enchanting, nearly poetic setting.
The continuous pursuit of new ideas combined with the professionalism of a tight-knit team give life to a dynamic restaurant whose passion for fine-dining is palpable.
In the kitchen is Domenico Stile, the youngest starred chef in Rome, along with his talented crew.
The dining room has been helmed for years by Restaurant Manager Luigi Picca, who embraces his role with great dedication.

At his side Chef Sommelier Rudy Travagli.
“Cuisine, service, and wine cellar create a perfect osmosis that courses from table to table, conjuring a magic capable of enchanting the guest in the most natural of ways.”

“Hospitality and professionalism are the strong points of my job and of our restaurant. It’s essential that the client doesn’t feel like they’re in a stuffy and cold environment. I believe in our project because Enoteca la Torre is a place that has no equals, where beauty and quality blend. We accompany the client through a sensorial journey of the highest level: here, for example, you can find over 6,000 labels from all over the world. I’ve chosen this vocation with great passion – my goal above all is to surprise and delight our guests.”
