Murra #4

At Retrobottega, “food is the drug”.

Legendary duo Giuseppe Lo Iudice and Alessandro Miocchi have created a bold, brash and utterly fantastic destination in the heart of Rome’s centro storico, where anything goes.

The pair met at two-star ‘Il Pagliaccio’ before opening the dark and moody restaurant, wine bar and pastificio on Via D’Ascanio. Playfully push boundaries with a strong emphasis on seasonality, creativity, and traditional regional ingredients, Retrobottega became an instant hit, attracting a charming mix of local cognoscenti and international experience hunters.

Traversing culinary borders with bold and brilliant mash-ups, their Carousel menu features Retro classics like ‘Yellow Risotto, Smoked Marrow’; Alessandro’s take on ‘Saltimbocca all Romana’; ‘and ‘Panna Cotta, Black Garlic, Hazelnuts, Truffle’. 

If our evening with them is anything to go by, this one is going to be a lot of fun…

We’re kicking off 2024 with Murra, a chef residency mini-series in collaboration with Rome’s Cultivar Studio bringing four of Italy’s most exciting culinary talents to London for four epic, back-to-back residencies. We’ll be working with Natoora to provide our four Murra chefs with the best seasonal produce they can get their hands on.

Coming up

From bona fide legends to the superstars of tomorrow, each week we welcome a new chef into the Carousel family.
