While looking for a suitable restaurant for our wedding anniversary we spotted this restaurant from positive TripAdvisor reviews. We were incredibly glad we did so. The restaurant was crowded but we were not crammed in. The service was prompt and attentive, leaving us alone for the most part but ensuring our courses arrived as soon as we had finished the...

We stumbled across this place after getting to Rome too late to book anywhere. The staff were friendly and attentitive, however we were pretty much sat on top of our neighbouring tables, so it wasnt very personal for us or the two couples either side. Food was ok, we ordered Carbonara...which bizarly had scrambled egg (not sure if it was... More

As everyone has already said, the service here is fantastic. Free amazza cafe upon finishing dinner and very caring, attentive staff. The food was good, especially the sea bass but was a bit expensive for us. Could do with a little boost in atmosphere and lighting...

It was our first dinner of our family holiday in Rome. Although we were tired and hungry before we started the dinner, we were very quickly delighted by the steady flow of very good quality Italian dishes. For starters, the Caprese and Octopus salad were simply perfect. It was difficult to imagine how octopus salad CN be tasty, we had... More

We chose this place to celebrate my wife's birthday in Rome based on its rating and reviews. And we weren't disappointed. The food was delicious, especially the desserts, the service was perfect. At the end we were treated with digetifs on the house. Bottles with Cherry and Limoncello and two shot glasses were placed on the table. But, the culmination... More

Considering this restaurant is ranked in the top 5% of Trip Advisor rated restaurants in Rome, my expectations were high. My first concerns were raised when we sent two requests for reservations with no reply. First note to the restaurant--don't offer a "contact us" service on your site if you are not going to review and reply to your clients.... More

We just stumbled onto this place, looking for an extensive pasta menu. Everything we had was beyond delicious, from antipasto to primi to secondi, to drinks to dolce!! Dessert was decadent!! (Panna cotta and cassata). English menu available, but there was much more choices on the menu in the window. Complimentary sherry and lemoncello after the meal. About 15 minute... 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.
