Chef Heros de Agostinis
Rome’s most exciting culinary journey takes place in a spectacular setting overlooking the Piazza della Repubblica. The design is chic and sultry, the ambience sophisticated and exclusive.
Upon entry, guests are invited to take a seat at the bar, where the Anantara Wine Guru is ready to make recommendations from the hundreds of wines and champagnes that line the glass-walled cellar. These are paired with canapes as art presented by the chef. Next, dinner is served, an exquisite tasting menu that promises to intrigue and delight in equal measure.
Executive Chef Heros de Agostinis is the personification of the restaurant’s avant-garde Italian metissage concept. Born in Rome, of Abruzzese and Eritrean blood, and a global nomad, he interweaves the spices and aromas of Europe, Asia and the Middle East into contemporary form.
His creations at INEO are inspired by the riches uncovered at the fresh markets of the world, and many of the ingredients served are sourced from the nearby market of Piazza Vittorio where the city’s different ethnicities come together. His style is instinctive, freeform, and the results vibrant and joyful, each dish with its own story and intriguing depths of exploration.
