Zenzero Osteria Metropolitana proposes a cooking based on simple ingredients, strongly related to traditional mediterranean diet. Pasta, vegetables, but also fish and meat, perfect expression of our best Italian cuisine. A great combination between Latium and Naples traditional cuisine, inspired by the Zenzero Osteria Metropolitana’s Chef personal experience, where typical dishes find new interpretation and forms of expression. A cuisine with no frills, but at the same time very variegated.


Zenzero Osteria Metropolitana’s cuisine is managed by Matteo Agovino, chef and one of the restaurant’s founders. After finishing his studies he obtained the chef qualification at the IPSSAR Institute of Rome, where he completed his training by attending a master’s degree in Food & Beverage Management of Tim Business School in Rome. Meanwhile he improved himself working for prestigious restaurants in the Capital: From the Auditorium Red Restaurant to Al Panda in Viale Liegi, but also in Ambasciatori Hotel in Via Veneto and in the Jolly Hotel in Corso d’Italia. In 2005 he became Zenzero Osteria Metropolitana’s Chef, but without giving up important collaborations. Since 2007 he teaches Cooking Lab in several hotel-management schools, both private and public.
