Located in Rome’s historic center, chef Anthony Genovese’s two Michelin starred restaurant Il Pagliaccio brings Italian fine dining into a new era.

Situated on Via dei Banchi Vecchi, the restaurant seats 28 and is just moments from the famous Campo de’ Fiori. Inspired by Anthony’s travels around Asia, but still firmly grounded in his Italian heritage, the menu is a celebration of the finest produce and ingredients.

Il Pagliaccio takes its name from a painting given to Anthony by his mother, which hangs in pride of place in the restaurant. Il Pagliaccio literally translates as “The Clown,” and refers to the mastery of different emotions the circus character can provoke. The latest incarnation of Il Pagliaccio’s tasting menu is titled Circus, and seeks not only to please its guests with delicious food, but to stir emotions of joy, curiosity and nostalgia through its dishes.
