The restaurant, founded around 1890, is an antique post station for horse exchange that transported goods from the Mediterranean to Rome. The Archeologia is immersed in the wonderful Antique Appian Park and the grand Roman tomb ruin is like a stage in this superb garden, dominated by a majestic wisteria that for over 300 years has bloomed, creating a delicious and fresh shade. The Archeologia is a mix between culture and cuisine, between modern and antique, between good food and love for our history.


The funerary complex at the inside of the restaurant goes back to the first century After Christ, and it is shaped by an external mausoleum and by a hypogeum grave made into a wine cellar. This complex was part of the family funerary grave. The entire restaurant is placed on the mausoleum of the hypogeum grave that in antique times it rose for about six meters.
