RISTORANTE BRAMANTE, ROME Just steps away from the Piazza Navona, chef Jean-Luc Fruneau re-imagines traditional Mediterranean cuisine at the multilevel rooftop garden at the Raphaël Hotel’s restaurant, which faces the Bramante cloister in the church of Santa Maria della Pace. The terrace also overlooks many of the Eternal City’s architectural wonders, from the Pantheon and St. Peter’s Basilica to Castel Sant’Angelo and Giuseppe Sacconi’s 1885 war memorial.
At the Dana hotel you will find the great outdoor patio rooftop bar Vertigo Sky Lounge. This is a more upscale lounge and has a strict dress code, so make sure you dont wear your tshirts and tennis shoes. They do get packed on the weekend so unless you want to get bottle service or pay off the bouncer be sure to get there early. The wait staff is pretty attentive compared to other places.
