Caffe Mediterraneo

Italian Restaurant & Bar

Since 1996, Caffé Mediterraneo has offered authentic Italian cuisine for the delight of locals and visitors. We offer a menu of dishes prepared with fresh ingredients found in the local market, and the ingredients vary according to the season. We aim to offer the taste found in traditional Italian home cooking.

Francesco Marchese is the owner and Chef of Caffé Mediterraneo, he was born in Rossano Calabria, in southern Italy. He moved to Guatemala in 1996 and opened the restaurant along with his Guatemalan wife, Leonora. In a short amount of time, the restaurant became very popular among the people from Guatemala City.

During all this time, the Chef Francesco Marchese has been the head of the restaurant, making the quality of the products a constant priority. The Chef has also participated as a guest on the morning show “Viva la Mañana” on Guatevision, and has also taken part in private cooking lessons to small groups.

The restaurant also takes care of private events, such as job meetings, weddings, etc., which can take place in other sites besides the restaurant, such as ruins and hotels.
