Via del Pantheon 55, Roma - Italia
RESTAURANT

Da Fortunato, situated right in the heart of Rome and just a stone’s throw from the Pantheon, cherishes a long tradition of hospitality, passion and professionalism in the art of offering the warmest of receptions and excellent food.

It was back in the 1950s that Fortunato Baldassarri moved to Rome from Terracino, a small village close to Amatrice in the north of the Lazio region, and started gaining work experience in some of the prestigious eating places in the city, such as Il Circolo della Caccia and La Taverna Flavia, regularly waiting on celebrities of international renown from the likes of Liz Taylor to Alberto Sordi.

He launched his own restaurant in January 1975 when the restaurant Da Fortunato opened its doors for business on the premises of an old Roman hostelry at number 55, Via del Pantheon, continuing a gastronomic tradition on the site which dated back to the eighteenth century.

Over the years, Fortunato transmitted his immense passion and wealth of experience to his son, Jason, who today continues to run this hugely successful family business.

THE team

Our kitchen is manned by a team of local Romans, all under 40 years of age, a dynamic and skilled staff capable of combining tradition and innovation whilst working under the direction of head chefs Luca Cicchinelli and Giuliano Villella.
