Blog:  Aromaticus – “Urban Farming Grow Shop”

Posted by on Jan 30, 2012 in Food Shopping, Light Lunch | 0 comments


Yet again in Monti,  one of Rome’s most dynamic neighborhoods for food lovers, opens another foodie locale. Aromaticus is quaint and unique to Rome, selling a very necessary selection of aromatic herbs and spices.  And it happens to be just a few steps from another foodie mecca, Tricolore, Rome’s contemporary bakery and cooking class venue.
It’s also a nice opportunity for taking away some cold preparations such as fresh mixed salads, carpaccio and tartare or to enjoy them from 1pm in the few seats available inside.
Pastries are made by the famous maître pâtissier Andrea de Bellis. 
Owners Luca and Francesca are young but have significant wine & food industry previous experiences. You can perceive their enthusiasm and energy as soon as you walk inside the shop. They should begin in the next days gardening workshops and classes about flavoring use too. We’ll keep you updated about it.

And now space to the photos we took in a recent visit at Aromaticus during one of our food tours in Monti-Esquilino area!
