Café and cocktail bar
The day at Santa Maria starts very early, with the café service. And this is the ideal bar for breakfast with homemade cakes, or for a mid morning snack, with sandwiches and stuffed bread rolls prepared daily in our kitchen using very fresh ingredients, juice extracts and freshly squeezed juices. We also offer both the internal dining hall or the two external areas for quick business lunches, where you will find tables surrounded by plants to enjoy a pleasant moment of discretion.
In the afternoons, our bartenders prepare rich aperitifs and cocktails for lovers of quality drinking.
The history of the evocative Papal Church of Santa Maria Maggiore inspired the name of the local. The church was founded in the 5th century AD by Pope Sixtus III and is the only one of the four papal churces to have preserved the original early Christian structure.The venue
Santa Maria’s venue also develops outdoors with an outside area used as a café and restaurant, with tables surrounded by plants and bamboos that ensure the right level of privacy.
The dishes of Roman cuisine
Santa Maria’s chef draws inspiration from the recipes of Italian cuisine, especially from the Lazio region.
Each day it’s the market that decides what’s on offer: vegetables, fish chosen for the preparation of dishes, all follow the rhythm of the seasons.
For lovers of homemade flavours, the chef recommends: carbonara, fettuccine alla papalina, cannelloni al sugo, scaloppe al vino and lobster spaghetti.
