Picture of Flavio Carnevale.

Flavio Carnevale

In his first restaurant, Popolo, Flavio Carnevale explored the Southern Italian food of his Basilicata childhood. Now, MARTA is a celebration of the energy, flavours and Lazio wines of his adopted city Rome. In Flavio’s view, hospitality relates to a restaurant’s entire package so he spent 10 years in Rome by day cooking in the kitchen then by night on the floor hosting and serving fully immersed in the food, wine and personalities - this is still his modus operandi at MARTA

It was an OK dining experience but nothing was outstanding or even that good. Average is probably the best word to describe it all.

A fantastic Italian wine list headlines this great restaurant. With a focus on lazio wines and very well informed staff, we were able to enjoy an indulgent wine journey. Food was good and the service was good until it got busy when it became harder to attract waiter attention. We'll be back.

MARTA is an osteria inspired by the flavours and streets of Rome. The ideal spot from date nights to leisurely Sunday family gatherings. Flavio Carnevale - creator of Sydney's much loved Popolo - has created a true neighbourhood gem serving up traditional Roman flavours in abundance - from classic cacio e pepe (pasta served with black pepper and pecorino) to scottadito (tomahawk with spicy chicory). Best dish: cacio e pepe.
