"This historical residence, owned by the Fendi family for generations…"
After winning several awards in Viterbo, Ristorante Enoteca la Torre moved to Rome in June 2013, occupying the magnificent rooms of Villa Laetitia, the mansion owned by Anna Fendi Venturini and run by Giulio Cesare Delettrez Fendi.
This historical residence, owned by the Fendi family for generations, was built in 1911 by the Roman architect Armando Brasini. It is located on the Lungotevere delle Armi and more specifically in the Della Vittoria area.
This is where Buffalo Bill and his circus camped during their Italian tour and it is also the area that hosted the exhibition celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Kingdom of Italy in 1911.
This historical neighbourhood is noted for its villas in the Renaissance and Baroque styles, as was the architectural fashion in the first decades of the 20th century. Among these, Villa Laetitia stands out for its sober elegance.
The villa was transformed into a charming hotel and restored to its original glory by Anna Fendi Venturini who has put so much expertise, passion and ingenuity into the planning of the interior and exterior decoration of this peaceful haven in the heart of Rome.
The restaurant is located in a richly decorated hall on the ground floor; it is filled with the light shining through an immense glass window which is the symbol of Villa Laetitia. Several other rooms on the ground floor are also accessible to restaurant guests, including Sala Castellini, used as a tea room and for wine-tastings, and a bar where guests can have a drink and linger before the meal.
On the upper floor, the following dining rooms are available for reservation: SALA ALVIANI, SALA VISCONTI, SALA DELLE CALLE, SALA ADELE, SALA LUIGI XVI.
The panoramic windows on the ground floor overlook a luxuriant garden where guests can enjoy a coffee outdoors and, why not, a good cigar in the milder season. In the garden and in some rooms of the Villa, events are organized by Enoteca La Torre Catering.
