Lunch at Rome Cavalieri

The five star Cavalieri Hotel is situated high above Rome, up the twisting Via Alberto Cadlolo, surrounded by 15 acres of Mediterranean parkland, and is part of Waldorf Astoria’s exclusive Hotels & Resorts.

Poolside terrace and bar


Everything about this place is just stunning and the service is second to none. With several bars and restaurants offering a variety of food and drinks, we chose the pool terrace bar partly because it was scorching hot so we wanted to be outside and – to avoid getting burnt – we could take advantage of the parasols for shade.

Wellbeing salad lunch at the Cavalieri


For a late brunch today – slightly suffering from the excesses of last night – we both chose the Insalata del Benessere (wellbeing salad) comprising corn salad, cabbage, lettuce hearts, fennel julienne, Taggia olives, orange and cheese @ 24 euros, along with fresh mixed breads and the inevitable oil and balsamic vinegar, and a pot of tea.

Leisurely lunch


A huge bowl of hearty goodness, the individual flavours within this salad were exquisite: subtle, creamy goats cheese, sparse but juicy orange segments, and a hint of aniseed from the fennel. Absolutely divine with fresh walnut bread and extra virgin olive oil and aceto balsamico di Modena.

It’s hard to believe that this tranquil oasis is only a short distance from Rome’s buzzing city centre. But it is. And it’s well worth a visit.
