The chairs are comfortable alright. As the name states, I Sofà Bar Restaurant and Roof Terrace (the sofas), you imagine a room full of comfortable cushioned seats with back and arms. Along with good food, wine and company, now that can be the right place for a pleasant dining experience on where to enjoy what the Eternal City has to offer. The restaurant is located on the ground floor of centrally-located Hotel Indigo Rome – St. George, a five-star boutique hotel in a quiet road parallel to Lungotevere (boulevard along the Tiber River). In summer, the rooftop seating is open for dining al fresco with a panoramic view of the city.
The kitchen has a philosophy of leading the guests on a gastronomic journey through the regional excellence of food and beverage using farm to table ingredients. The dishes are both traditional as well as innovative without losing the essence of the authenticity of the Italian cuisine.
I Sofà Bar, Restaurant & Roof Terrace is located in a cobblestone stone road of via Giulia where arriving by car can be quite difficult. Parking is available along the Lungotevere or at the newly-constructed covered parking of Via Giulia with the entrance along Lungotevere and just a quick walk towards the restaurant.
Right from the cobblestone alley of Via Giulia, the main door of the restaurant opens to a beautiful contrast of the ancient city outside. Minimalistic modern design with the prevailing atmosphere of elegance, I Sofà Bar, Restaurant & Roof Terrace gives a great first impression as the staff gives you a warm welcome.
The kitchen is guided by Chef Filly Mossuca along with Sous Chef Fabiana Loreti. For them, the search for raw materials and the ability to develop new combinations together with creativity make up the perfect recipe for a sublime gastronomic experience. Although I have dined there with their previous chef, the kitchen continues the path to a superior Italian cuisine.
