Sidoro is very famous for its "taste" of pasta, a tasting pasta dishes selected by the chef. So you can enjoy, in addition to classic early Romans as bucatini or spaghetti alla Carbonara Amatriciana, our classics of all time and our news accompanied by fine wines. 3 The daily arrivals of fresh fish, meat of first quality and excellent desserts made by our pastry chefs greatly enrich the proposal of our local.

Great pasta

This place serves phenomenal pasta with huge portions. Specifically, we really enjoyed the pasta sampler. I wouldn't do more than 3 samplers for 2 people because of the portion sizes. It was incredibly tasty, best pasta i had in all of Italy. The service? No smiles, no friendly greetings, but... read more

This place is very busy and it's clear as to why. What a fabulous meal. Great pastas and fish dishes. Waiter was fluent in English and offered to bring the uncooked fish to our table so we could inspect (and smell) it. The lobster tried to take my cell phone! The antipasto misto is huge and both house white and... More

I came here with my Son (a head chef) and some friends and we were blown away by the food and the price. We rocked up without a reservation but were lucky to get a table as there were a few of us. The staff were friendly. The place was nice but a tad warm - we were close to... More

Bizarrely this place has a lot of good reviews?... The only reason s for this I could see are that they serve big portions and have a cheap house wine. Now that I have explained the reason this place has some good reviews let me give my experience. Antipasti not really antipasti just a collection on ham with ball of... More

In the Monti neighbourhood away from the tourist traps, a typical Italian restaurant. Good service, good food and good value for money. A 250 grams filet steak at 15€, grilled to perfection! We will definitely return on our next visit to Rome!

We went to Isidoro after our Hotel front desk recommended it, and it did NOT disappoint! I highly recommend the pasta sampler where you can choose from getting between 2-10 random pastas from the restaurant. The first time we went, we did 3 and all 3 of them were AMAZING!!! So good in fact, we decided to come back 2... More

I have not seen this in other Italian restaurants -- but Isidoro has a pasta sampler option. It's best if you have several people in your group. You'll get a variety of different Italian pastas -- it's a great way to do a food tour of Rome. The food is very good, at the better end of the scale in... More

We asked for the menu and immediately felt intimidated, we were told what wine to drink, not even a gentle recomendation, just a bottle placed on the table. The waiter then tried to push a starter option onto us and we had to be quite firm in saying no. We then perused the menu and chose our dishes. One of... More

I have never experienced anything like it.. We came away feeling like we'd been mugged! Having placed our food order the dishes came out separately with one meal completely wrong, when we explained this wasn't our order we had no apology but a further 20 min wait for it to arrive wrong again. When we had finally finished having eaten... More

Not a lot to say, very welcoming we went in late without a reservation and they found a a very nice table. Although full the service was really good.

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.
