We visited this restaurant following a recommendation from our hotel. It was our favourite meal whilst in Rome. Great décor and atmosphere, although we visited on a quiet Tuesday night in January. Subtle music playing and just the right amount of service from waiters, attentive but not in your face. Between the 2 of us we shared a pasta dish,... More

We were actually staying next door at the Rome Times Hotel so decided to give this place a try. Unfortunately they were fully booked for the Saturday night so we ended up going on Sunday - worth booking if your interested in going. The food was really nice, and certainly different from the usual restaurants in Rome. We actually felt... More

Pleasant restaurant with lots of character, our starter was amazing, beef carpaccio , main pasta was a little undercooked and waiter was a little standoffish and adamant it was al dente , though there is a difference between undercooked and al dente which he soon realised. otherwise a nice place to visit

Everything is out of balance in this place. The wine list is a gem! Great wines at excelent prices!! Food is a good try on contemporary sea seafood. The problem is nothing is seasoned at all!! Al least the salt was on the table. Dessert was not on par with the food. Cheese cake was not good at all. Products... More

Myself and my partner booked a table for 9pm, we arrived at 8.55pm to be told the table would be 5 minutes, which turned out to be 25 minutes. The reviews kept me in the restaurant as during the wait we weren't offered drinks, a menu or an explanation. We then we had been seated, we had to keep grabbing... More

Dear Madam, Thank'you for your review on TA. I'm really sorry for your bad experience in our restaurant. I don't remember you and my staff isn't able to give me information about the problems with your table, first of all for the fact that your table was ready 25 minutes after the time you reserved it. I'm also really disappointed... More

We had some great dinners at Rome but this was simply the best. So good, I had to write my first review here at Tripadvisor. Delicous fish dishes and wine! Absolutely recommendable.

If you like seafood then you need to try this restaurant. We started off with the seafood tartare which was mind blowing. It felt like the plates kept coming. Everything different, super fresh and beautifully presented. I had the lobster and pasta and almost passed out when I found half a lobster in my pasta... So good! My husband had... More

Four of us traveling in Italy visited this restaurant (next door to our apartment) in the Monti section of Rome. The cuisine was by far the most creative we had in Rome, beautifully prepared and presented in vivid, stunning designs. Among other things we had were the purple gnocchi with clams and truffles, ravioli, an excellent monkfish dish, a beef... More

Staying in Monti

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.
