Honeymoon meal

Our favourite evening meal during our stay in Rome. Lovely wine and especially enjoyed the black seaweed ravioli and the scallops. Beautiful seafood menu, cooked extremely well.

Went here with my parents as we were visiting Rome, and this restaurant was right next door to our hotel. The staff were very welcoming and there was a nice atmosphere inside. The food was amazing - by far the best food we had on our trip. I can especially recommend the monkfish with lemon potatoes - delicious! The prices... More

Our hotel recommended this gem of a restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The food, staff and service were excellent and we would never have found it. Good selection of fish and meat with a real modern feel. Wine list was a bit daunting but the staff helped us to find our way. Thoroughly recommend.

Top quality fish and seafood, quite expensive but excellent service and very good value. Would dine here quite happily every night. We had scallops & steak tartare for starters, both were quite sublime, tuna pasta and monkfish were devine, tiramisu was dandy. This is a food lovers paradise.

The food was amazing very fresh fish, the service was impeccable. The owner came to our table to introduced himself to make sure that we were enjoying our dinner. Definitely a place where the locals go I would recommend this restaurant and I would go back.

It's the best restaurant we had in Rome. Highly recommended to the raw tuna and the lobster pasta . The price is fair and guess what the lobster pasta is just €18, definitely worthwhile for a try.

Great ambiance, a bit cramped but comfortable. We ordered the pasta with lobster as our primi piatti, followed by the duck. It was amazing.

The only dinner in our whole trip where we felt the cuisine was done by real chefs and not simple cooks. Simply terrific. The service was also irreproachable.

Probably tied for best dinner restaurants we went to in Rome (the other was Il Gabriello). Came here for dinner on our last night in rome and was very happy with the experience - delicious lobster pasta, caramelized duck, and scallops. All the dishes were very good (pasta sizes are fairly large and a good idea to share). The restaurant... More

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
