We chose this restaurant based on TripAdvisor reviews and because it was close to our hotel. We were very pleased. Indeed, we enjoyed our meal so much the first night, we immediately made a reservation for another night. Walking in, we were warmly welcomed into a space that had a funky somewhat 70s ambience. We each had the house wine... More

We had many good meals in a ten day visit to Italy. This was one of the two best. We each had an antipasto and a primo. One dessert and one after dinner drink completed our meal. Sesame breaded shrimp and scallops were both delicious, generous starters. Lobster pasta and black ravioli were equally good primi. Creme brûlée with star... More

Went here twice because the food was so good. It's not cheap but it's good value considering the quality. The service was a bit slow when it got busy, but the food was worth the wait. Highly recommend the lobster pasta!

During our visit to Rome we went there twice, simply because it was that good. The food was not the typical italian food, it was more fusion kitchen with some asian influences as well. I loved the food and the service. The owner was so kind, nothing was too much. He helped us to choose our dishes and gave us... More

We discovered Matermatuta last year only by accident. The hotel we were staying in recommended it so we decided to give it a shot. And we've been going there ever since! Whenever in Rome, for a long weekend or whatever the occasion, we make sure to eat at least twice there. In only one word: amazing!!! The restaurant, the staff,... More

Most interesting menu and wonderful presentation. Attentive service as well. Italian but way beyond traditional. The Asian inspired tuna appetizer was incredible. Gnocchi and monk fish..vast wine selection. Don't miss it. I hope to go again if I am ever in Rome again!

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.
