IMÀGO at the Hassler

A breathtaking view of Rome. Twelve exclusive tables. Chef Andrea Antonini’s fine dining offering that tips its hat to the global stage but never forgets home. A cellar with 1,500 labels selected by Alessio Bricoli and masterful dining room management by Marco Amato. All this, and much more, is Imàgo: magic awaits you.

The Chef: Andrea Antonini

Andrea Antonini, born in 1991, has been Executive Chef at Imàgo for five years. Before being called by Roberto E. Wirth to play this role in one of the most magical places in Rome, he gained experience in some of the world’s top kitchens, from Celler de Can Roca to Quique Dacosta and Enrico Crippa in Alba. Technique and rigour are the pillars on which Antonini’s continually evolving idea of cuisine is firmly founded. It’s a contemporary offering that leans increasingly towards purity and minimalism, and lets the food do the talking. Its sole objective is: “the serious business of making sure customers enjoy themselves”.

The Brigade

The dining room

In charge of table service at Imàgo is Marco Amato, mainstay and historical memory of this magical place. His incredible experience, sincere cordiality and disarming smile have clearly inspired the entire floor staff.

Impeccable service is a constant but never invasive presence, resulting in a relaxed and pleasantly unforgettable atmosphere.

The Cellar

Alessio Bricoli is the attentive and well-informed cellar master at the Imàgo restaurant. Endless study, frequent travel and meetings with producers enable him to bring together the world’s best-known names and smaller, niche wineries with some surprises up their sleeve. His liquid heritage currently numbers around 1,500 labels, including some outstanding vertical collections for the more exclusive guests to single specimens that have helped write the history of the world’s wines.

The Wirth family

“We never look to the past because it distracts us from the present and our goal is the future,” said Roberto E. Wirth, neatly summing up the approach to life of the Wirth family, long standing owners of the Hotel Hassler, home of the Imàgo restaurant on the sixth floor. Hotel Hassler preserves the memory of a storied building with one of the most beautiful views in the city. Thanks to the vision of a refined and cultured dynasty of hoteliers, it has been able to stay contemporary, catering to the needs of its exclusive international clientele.

Roberto Jr. and Veruschka Wirth, son and daughter of Roberto E. Wirth and the sixth generation of the family, are the new faces at the head of what is undoubtedly an emblem and benchmark for high-end hospitality, and not only in Rome.
