A rare pearl among our careful selection of the best addresses right now

La Basilica di San Giovanni, uno dei luoghi più conosciuti di Roma, è il riferimento ideale per spiegare in quale zona della città è situato il ristorante “Chiaroscuro”. Locale elegante e raffinato grazie alle bianche pareti ed agli arredi estremamente curati, offre una cucina basata su una meticolosa ricerca delle materie prime nel rispetto della stagionalità e sulla cura dei particolari e dei dettagli. Predominano i sapori mediterranei della tradizione culinaria del nostro paese, rappresentati al meglio dai prodotti principali che fanno capolino nel menu, dalle seppie ai ricci, dai crostacei al pesce freschissimo, proponendo anche interessanti variazioni dei classici, come nel caso delle “linguine all'amatriciana di mare”.

Aperti tutti i giorni tranne il lunedì, sia a pranzo che a cena, Chiaroscuro può contare anche su di una cantina molto fornita, con una grande varietà di vini italiani e champagne. Struttura ideale non solo per cenare o pranzare fuori casa, ma anche per eventi di ogni tipo, poiché è possibile organizzare feste private ma anche battesimi, comunioni e matrimoni. Piatti buoni da mangiare e belli da vedere, un servizio attento e professionale, un’atmosfera piacevole ed elegante: questi i punti di forza di Chiaroscuro.

    From holding open the door for us to enter to ordering a taxi for us on departure, it was amazing service with friendly and knowledgeable staff. We were a family of 4 for Xmas Eve meal and it was simply delicious. Every dish was beautifully presented and mouth-watering tasty. This 7 dish meal came with white wine and water. It was perfect and well-worth every penny!! Highly recommend this restaurant.

    The food was amazing! I had the lobster spaghetti. The service was awesome! The waiters were very attentive and helpful. They brought a glass of Prosecco as soon as I sat down. I was too full for dessert. They brought a little free sample of cookies, but I could only eat a bite. Definitely recommend!

    The setting is very pleasant - elegant without exaggeration, pleasantly quiet and service is friendly, welcoming, attentive and ready to satisfy any special request. Food in general is very good, many dishes off the beaten track and well prepared. Not to the same level were the "amuse-gueule" and decorative greens on the plate (too wilted). My suggestion: either leave it or make sure that also these "minor" elements of a plate are fresh and pleasant to look at (and why not? to eat. The wine list is good and sufficiently diversified, prices are good (better than in many other restaurants). Food prices are ok, especially with a 25% discount. All in all, certainly recommendable; especially if you want to spend a pleasant and quiet dinner with friends.

    We were the first customers to arrive for the evening meal. The staff continued their noisy conversation near the front door even after we were seated. They then proceeded to spray the entire restaurant with bug spray while we were seated. We certainly did not feel like staying, but did so anyway. The food was acceptable. However, the entire experience was not one that we would ever want to live through again.
