A home away from home for the wine obsessed, the small luxury Hotel de’ Ricci is a design gem tucked away in one of Rome’s prettiest neighbourhoods of the centre, Regola. The boutique hotel with 8 plush and retro decked out suites, has you select 8 wines for your in-room cellar pre arrival from a cellar that boasts 1,500 labels and over 5,000 bottles.
All of the staff here – including General Manager Flavio Scannavino – are qualified sommeliers and are on hand to organise tastings, cellar visits and wine pairings with your meals. On that front, the in-house restaurant is an all day dining affair. The menu features a selection of Roman classics so that you can get your carbonara fix, or choose from the offering of contemporary and creative dishes. Think sea bass carpaccio with lime and toasted almonds or an orecchiette pasta with artichokes and shrimps, and comfort mains like slow cooked pork fillet with red wine and blueberry reduction, toasted walnuts and seasonal vegetables.
And the hidden Charade Bar might very well become your secret hideaway in the city. The chesterfields, eclectic furnishings and works painted by hand by famed illustrator, Andrea Ferolla create a vibe that is warm, yet sophisticated. Kick back with a whiskey, champagne or a martini and a cigar too. Hotel de’ Ricci is an indulgent Roman address for connoisseurs of the finer things in life.
