Kook Osteria & Pizzeria opened in 2012 in the town of Olgiata in the north Rome. The unique design & decorative ideas of the Noses Architects founded by Mohamed Keilani & Luca Gasparini, has been created a restaurant with a rustic yet industrial style which makes the client feels more like home than in a restaurant! On the one hand the choice of old furnishings, leather Chesterfield couches, vintage decorative items, suspended chandeliers and a Bianchi bicycle on the wall and on the other hand the mix & match of different materials like concrete, wood, old hand made tiles, metal & glass create a cozy space that offers an atmosphere of cool comfort with a touch of class... What I loved most about this restaurant was its centerpiece; a living olive tree encased in a paneled glass shell, paying homage to the fruit that is so important to the Italian cuisine! For me this is a place where I could spend a lot of hours starting with a lunch and leaving after many hours, late in the evening, having a wonderful time lounging with friends just like home!!!
