The best in this part of Rome

Not bad, quite good food, but I think that 5 tripadvisor stars are a bit too much. In this part of Rome I couldn't find anything better so it is quite good place for dinner. Lasagne was very good, Parma ham as antipasti could be better.

Boring food. We took lasagne and some pasta with mushroom. High price. Only good thing was that we were living over street and was a rainy evening. I think a place in first 300 is highly overrated.

Had dinner here as it was a recommendation from our nearby hotel. It was a Friday night. We had a reservation but the restaurant was pretty empty so we didn't really need one. Even so, it took a long time to get a menu or any attention, and we found the service to be overall quite slow. We started off... More

We went here for dinner our first night in Rome since it was recommended by a friend. Good service and quite cosy restaurant, we had a great white wine with our meal. The food was uneven, I had a risotto and my partner had a seafood plate. The risotto was very tasty but the seafood plate didn't taste much at... More

Great atmosphere is just the beginning at this place. The staff is very nice and friendly, they care a lot but they do not over-do it. The food is just excellent from a starter to a "dolci". And the price is more then reasonable for this part of the city.

Unsure where all of these glowing reviews are coming from. This was our most expensive meal in Rome (and therefore all of Italy) and probably one of the least enjoyable. The food was edible, but not really very tasty. My spaghetti alla vongele was pretty tasteless- I didn’t detect any real flavour to the sauce. I would guess that this... More

Hello, but are you sure you deserve the title of expert reviewer ???? If you say that the cost of the meal consumed by us is too expensive I can not imagine where you go to eat as a result you can understand how you can be a real expert reviewer . But expert who ??????? More

Staying in a nearby hotel, we chose this place on the basis of the very high score on Trip Advisor. The experience was disappointing. There were no locals (or any Italians) eating here. The food was mediocre and expensive compared to other meals we had in Rome. The back room must be unpleasant, because during our stay at least three... More

Visited this restaurant and found the food and staff were that good we went again another night. Normally on holiday we like to visit different places to eat, but we had to come back to find out if the attention was a one off. From the moment we went in they couldn't do enough for you, Vincenzo and his staff... More

Food & Hospitality is so great! Here is the best reastrant for us at our stay in Italy. If we can visit again to Italy, abusolutely, we take dinner here!! 確かに客層に日本人が多いですが、 素晴らしい料理とhospitalityを頂いたので、そんなこと全然気になりません。 旅の最終日に来たので、もっと早くこの店を知っていればと。。 とにかく、またいつか必ずきたい!

We decided to go to this restaurant for our evening meal having looked at the menu displayed outside during the day. We liked the look of the set menus. When we arrived at about 7:40 p.m the restaurant was quite quiet but it soon began to fill up. We decided to have the most expensive of the set menus, €35.... 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.
