Roma Osteria & Bar

Dedicated to life’s simple pleasures of eating and drinking well, Roma is a nod to regional Italian home cooking by Chef Luca Pezzera, served in a grand yet inviting space in the heart of Jakarta’s SCBD. Drop by for an al fresco lunch with the most authentic Neapolitan pizza in town, made by world champion pizzaiolo Pasqualino Barbasso. A leisurely dinner should involve at least one of our many iterations of Cacio e Pepe, the sublime spaghetti carbonara, or the Trippa all Romana, accompanied by fantastic Italian wines. The bar is perfect for a spot of aperitivo as well as late-night revelries: try the excellent Garibaldi, any of the classic and innovative Negronis, or any cocktails highlighting amaro and bitters.
