A semi-outdoor restaurant that’s perfect for a meal during the nicest days of summer, the look of Madre is based on a “sitting room nestled in a tropical garden,” providing an extra layer of freshness. A gem of Roma Luxus Hotel Rome. As for the menu, it mixes Italian cuisine with South American flavors, and the pizza was downright delicious.
