It's not as easy as you might think to find good coffee in Rome, but here it is fantastic. As an added bonus they have free wifi to use and loads of space both inside and outside so you can sit and chat/read/work for as long as you like and you won't be pushed into leaving. In fact the service... More

Went here at around midnight for a late night cocktail. The place is divided into 3 spaces ie cafe, restaurant and bar. We did not eat here so chose to sit outside which is set up in a really interesting and lovely way. The street is much quieter than many in Rome making it very enjoyable to sit there (a... More

Stumbled upon this place after being steered wrong TWICE by TripAdvisor (places that didn't exist anymore). Was a nice place to stumble into. The waiter was very attentive. Our first waitress did not speak much english, so she found this gentleman to assist us. He was great. We had a cheese plate and some drinks. Hit the spot!

I ate here on day 8 of my travels through Italy, first night in Rome. I had a reservation but they kept me waiting a while, even though it was pretty empty. My drink was adequate. Both my primi and second were tasteless. At the recommendation of the server, I had the fish and chips. Howard Johnson used to have... More

We found the restaurant just passing by, will going to our hotel by taxi ! The place seemed nice and we liked the terrace with parasols. We just arrived there with no reservation and the place was full, but they managed to find a table for us, outside for 4 ! Was perfect. The menu is exclusively in Italian (but... More

It's a charming place without any care for its customers. My wife and I had the unfortunate experience of waiting for food that came too late. After waiting well over an hour to call their attention, it was then that they realized that "their computer messed up" so the chef never cooked our main courses. It would have been believable...

There are three Settembrini in a row - the restaurant, the cafe and the cafeteria. I'm reviewing the restaurant. We found the food to be inventive, interesting, and quite good, the service very friendly and the wines were quite good. You can get good wines by the glass and the suggestions of the staff were excellent. My favorite things were... More

Three of us, two Italians and myself (Canadian) went to Settembrini last night for our last meal in Rome before heading back to Vancouver. What a mistake....talk about ending our love Italian trip on a sour note. We were completely ignored by servers and treated as if we were second class citizens. After one of my friends loudly and assertively... More

Arrived for dinner at 8pm on Wed night without making a booking and were seated after a bit of wait. Extensive cocktail list- tried bitter based one, very nice taste and presentation. Food is modern European: a bowl of crisps was very nice as they were homemade. Had Thai chicken, Calamari and Octopus salad. Food was served lukewarm and without... More
