Food & Drink Awards 2021 Page 51 LUX 2021 Food & Drink Awards CLASS Restaurant Cocktail Bar was born from a deep love of food, with its chefs striving to express the taste and immense variety of Italy’s culinary art in every dish. CLASS Restaurant Cocktail Bar Cocktail Bar of the Year 2021 – Rome Sep21476 CLASS Restaurant Cocktail Bar’s chefs are constantly searching for lost Italian flavours to inspire their dishes, combining traditional Rome with the modern world to create infinite new culinary solutions. They also take their inspiration from the seasons, the climate, and their own moods, as well as their travels, bringing home favourite flavours and culinary discoveries. Each dish is masterfully prepared using only the finest and freshest local ingredients. To complement the restaurant’s culinary excellence, or for those who just want a drink, the cocktail bar’s specialist bartender, Mauro Pinci creatively crafts cocktails to suit every taste. He is always inventing new unique and aesthetically pleasing concoctions which bring magical moments to guests, with one of many interesting offerings being smoke bubbles on cocktails. An edible smoke bubble is created to aromatise the cocktail which can be popped with a simple touch of the finger, releasing a delicious scent and awe-inspiring smoky effect. This pleasure is prolonged by the vibrant taste of the exclusive cocktail. Fittingly, CLASS offers a classy experience, one that is unparalleled and memorable and puts customers on a pedestal, keeping them coming back for more. One previous guest left the following TripAdvisor review: “The customer is treated with white gloves. Excellent food prepared with flair and imagination. Very fresh fish. The grilled fish was fabulous. Low prices and impeccable service.” Another guest who is a chef was delighted with the food and service they received, saying “the quality of fish is superb” and “the guy who served us was very kind and attentive to every detail”. Other guests were over the moon with their private dining experience in the restaurant’s igloo, an ideal location to enjoy a romantic meal with your other half. One said, “I ate in the igloo with my partner. Inside, we found a heater and a very cosy blanket! Very organised and super friendly staff. I was surprised by the freshness and quality of the fish (as I said to them even in Fiumicino you don’t eat fish like that). Fair prices. I will gladly return.” A second guest was also pleased with their time spent at CLASS and its igloo, saying “Everything perfect. Very particular environment taking care of the smallest details. We had dinner in an igloo that gives a special atmosphere. The staff are very kind and welcoming with a lot of professionalism. The kitchen is very attentive to the quality of the products and well presented.” Indeed, the CLASS experience is one not to be missed with guests describing it as “spectacular”, “elegant”, “beyond the imaginable”, and as taking them “to another dimension”. The fish is clearly a huge hit with diners and they just can’t get enough of everything CLASS has to offer, making it the Italian restaurant to go to, whether a local or tourist.
