The Space: Italo — Casual Italian
Located above Funkadeli on Fumin Lu, Italo is a spacious, sit-down dinner restaurant with a lounge for pre- or post-dinner cocktails. The setting is certainly classy, but the vibe remains casual.
The lounge area is sleek and spacious, which makes for the perfect setting to enjoy Italo’s cocktails. They have a selection of premium signature cocktails, a unique Negroni selection, world-inspired Gin & Tonics, and Aperitivo cocktails designed in cooperation with Campari Italy. The lounge also plays host to lively DJ sets on the weekend.
They also have a semi-private room that can be separated by a glass partition; comfortably seats 20 people.
The Food — What’s On The Menu
Rustic Italian dishes like the Tuscan seafood stew cacciucco, and porchetta are among the highlights. These are, of course, given a modern touch and a few twists.
Rome-native Chef Gonzo is explicit about importance of quality and strives to make everything in-house—all but one of the pastas are made fresh daily, as is the pizza dough.This last bit is a welcome change as fresh pasta and dough is a hallmark of a good Italian restaurant.
Here’s what to expect:
